The SEC may prevent it from happening, but Texas wide receiver Jaxon Shipley says the Longhorns would love to have a chance to play Texas A&M. Now if only we could make it happen.
“Anybody on this team would love a chance to play A&M,” Shipley said Wednesday when meeting with the media (via Mike Finger).
It feels like listening to a broken record hearing one player or coach on Texas or Texas A&M lay out a challenge, but higher powers will intervene. Maybe it is jealousy, maybe it is hurt or bitter feelings. Or maybe the hatred runs so deep the mere thought of losing to the other or providing any slight benefit to the other is so detestable. Whatever the case, the waiting game will simply have to continue before the day the Longhorns and Aggies once again meet on the field.
At some point in time Texas and Texas A&M will meet on the field again. It is just a matter of when it will happen. Fans on both sides may say they do not need to see the rivalry resurrected, but deep down you know each side would love to stick it to their old rivals one more time.
