This week, GigEmNation looks back at five decisions that helped define Texas A&M's 2012 season. These moments could be on or off the field or could have even come before the season, so long that they had a lasting impact on the Aggies' 2012 campaign. Today, we look at our pick for No. 1, A&M's decision to move to the Southeastern Conference.

Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin called the school's decision to join the Southeastern Conference a "100-year decision" but it took less than a year for the Aggies to see the potential of what membership in the country's premier football conference could do for them.

They officially joined the SEC on July 1, 2012, just more than nine months after the decision became official. In six months, things have changed drastically, particularly for Aggies football.
