You would think that if anyone relished in Texas A&M’s first SEC loss — a 20-17 game against Florida — it would be Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds.
Maybe Dodds did enjoy it at least a little, but he’s certainly not letting on that way. During a Monday press conference, Dodds was asked if he watched A&M’s game on Saturday, to which he replied “I didn’t see it. I haven’t read about it… I’m a Texas guy.”
Texas’ attitude toward A&M since the Aggies departed for the SEC last year has been deliberately indifferent. Despite requests by A&M to keep the once-annual Thanksgiving rivalry alive as a nonconference game, the Longhorns have shown no interest in scheduling a future match with the Aggies.
Apparently there’s no interest in watching them either.
Instead, the Longhorns will play TCU this Thanksgiving.
