There's not just bad blood between the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies, there's some bad blood between a few current players after the contentious finish to the 2015 recruiting class.
So when Aggies defensive tackle Daylon Mack went to troll the Longhorns by pulling the oh-so-typical A&M trick of pointing to SEC success as a way to build up a program that hasn't won anything substantial in a truly long time, Texas wide receiver Ryan Newsome emerged from somewhere deep in his feelings to fire back:
It's "who's" just saying. Lol. https://t.co/MWKBV9zCul— Ryan Newsome (@NewBoi17) February 2, 2016
Being a grammar nazi has probably never been so awesome.
The exchanged sparked a pretty awesome tweet:

This pretty much wins the day, to the extent that Kyle Porter's commitment did not entirely win the day, of course.
But wait! What about a head-to-head comparison of the Aggies and Longhorns producing NFL Draft picks? That might be relevant. Hmm...
Narrowing the focus to TEAMS… Texas with 55 players drafted since 2000; A&M, 45. https://t.co/RdUtv3ezIz— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) February 2, 2016
Guys, I have to apologize. I mistakenly didn’t count the 2015 draft. Texas’ draft pick lead is actually higher since 2010. Texas 21, A&M 16— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) February 2, 2016
Just know that the Aggies are pretty scared right now, as they aren't exactly making many claims to ruling the state right about now. Quite a transition there from building themselves up, to insulting Texas for not going to a bowl game, to crowing about the SEC vs. the Big 12. Look at how the paper giant falls.
