Here is my theory on all of this. It's really quite simple ... the Aggies played tu like a fiddle. As they say, keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer. As far back as tu's distruction of the SWC and Arkie leaving, due to the political situation and such, the Aggies saw they had a bad partner in tu. So the Aggies employed their long-term strategic 'sting'.
You want to take down the mark without them knowing you are in on taking them down. And the Aggies did just that! (it doesn't hurt to have the 'mark' make the plays in taking themselves out, either! Thanks deloss dodds and longhorn network!)
The Aggies wanted to be rid of the demands and the arrogance of the sips but they had to gain the confidence of the sips as well.
The Aggies knew they were in it for the long haul ... they knew not how or when they would take the mark down ... not at first .. but in time they knew the arrogance and greed of the sips would provide the opportunity and indeed it did. Hence, the vote for unequal revenue sharing ... it was wronghorn all the way but to gain the confidence of the sips, it was necessary.
The idea all along was to come and join the brethern of the SEC and to set tu up to be in a devalued, damaged, unstable conference situation ... leaving the sips perplexed, in denial, defensive, and argumentive was part of the plan all along. Those are signs of a successful 'sting' and the 'mark' well played!
The Aggies are now in the Greatest conference in the land and the only SEC team in the State of Texas. They are an equal partner in a conference of respected equals.
tu is left in a damaged, devalued, unstable, and considerably weakened conference of haves and have nots that do not trust or respect each other.
So there you have it ... a simple 'sting' with the 'mark' being the sips. Well played and well executed!
And here come the recruits ... jumping on the bandwagon to be in on the the only team in the State of Texas that is a member of the SEC ... the Best and most powerful conference in the land.

How is life in the 1950s, NewArmyAgg?
Even if DeLoss was gay, so what?
To the many sensible Aggies on here, my compliments.
Good night to all.
