    Bill to Require Annual Longhorns-Aggies Game

    http://www.texastribune.org/2013/01/...football-game/

    Interesting development in Aggie land. Wonder how our SEC brethren view this?

    One of the many "not a chance in hell of passing attention seeking" bills filled in state legislatures across the country.

    It is bill #700 and something out of about 4,000 that'll be introduced this session. Probably wont amount to much.

    It was a legislative resolution that started our playing AU again in 1948. The threat was that, if we didn't, then a bill would be passed...

    I would not be surprised if it was not initiated on the Longhorn end to keep recruiting from sliding more. Even if the TAMU side is more likely to win the game right now, I think this would help the Texas side far more than A&M.

    I know the guy in the article is an A&M graduate, but I still smell Texas.

    I was a bit puzzled that it originated from the Aggie side...

    All you need is Jerry throwing around a truck load of cash to play in his palace and both schools will think long and hard about starting it back up.

    It's pretty simple. If it passes, UT was behind the measure. If it fails, aTm was backing the bill.
