Texas and Texas A&M, two rivals that love to pretend they don’t care about each other but are actually hyper-obsessed with one another, could finally be playing each other in football again, according to some reports.

Texas coach Charlie Strong hinted at such during a meeting with the Touchdown Club of Houston on Friday.



The Austin American Statesman was quick to throw a bucket of cold water on the idea, saying no plans were currently in the works. Yeah, sure.


The two schools haven’t played each other since November 2011 — when Justin Tucker silenced the Aggies with a game-winning field goal as time expired.

Since that memorable kick, the Aggies have gone on to experience limited, but surprising, success in the SEC. Texas, on the other hand, has basically been doing shit like this for the last four years:

The rivalry has essentially turned into a massive recruiting war — with “victories” equating to player commitments or players from the other school transferring (Ha, see ya Kyle and Kyler). And while it’s been a fun shit-talking battle, it’s time these two schools start playing again. There will not be a hotter ticket in the history of sports than the next time these two teams play each other in football. It’ll have Super Bowl-esque ticket prices. Even if both teams are complete shit, it will be the game of the year.

Hopefully we can get it sooner rather than later.
