Both Texas and Texas A&M are 7-2 this season and 4-2 in their respective conferences. This may sound like an odd question to Longhorns fans, but based on their play this season, can anyone give me a reason why it's more attractive to choose Texas over the Aggies? Texas has beaten one ranked team (Texas Tech last weekend) and been destroyed by Oklahoma and lost to a West Virginia team exposed as a fraud.
With A&M in the SEC now and with what appears to be a bright future under Johnny Football, the days of A&M getting the scraps in state could be ending soon. This is an exciting football team with a terrific coach in Kevin Sumlin, and they are shocking a ton of people by being relevant in the SEC.
If they don't get drummed by Alabama and hang in there, they will have even more juice with recruits. And imagine if they win?
Absolutely insane. The difference between TAMU and UT is that at UT, even now, you have a chance at winning the conference, whereas TAMU won't win the SEC West for years, let alone the conference. And this year in the vaunted SEC, they are avoiding UGA and South Carolina. Imagine when those teams pick it up, and Auburn/Arkansas actually have viable coaches?
