Texas AD Chris Del Conte offered a home and home series to Texas A&M earlier this year and the Aggies declined. A&M AD Scott Woodward explained:
“You look at where national championships come from and the caliber of play, and you see it every week,” Woodward said. “It’s hard on a team, and it’s a pounding. So you have to be careful how you schedule your nonconference games.”
In their stead, Texas scheduled Alabama. So I guess we’ll be fine.
Eternal scoreboard intact.
