We have two old and much more fun rivalries in A&M vs LSU and A&M vs Arkansas to enjoy now!

Awesome but uh.....what are your thoughts on the BYU/Utah situation?

I'll make the connection...

TAMU is tired of UT's sh!t. UU is tired of BYU's sh!t.

No fan bases are harder to put up with than UT's and BYU's, and no athletic departments are more arrogant.

This man speaks the truth!

Couldn't have said it better myself!

ALL of us are tired of their sh!t, even those of us who have been their rivals/conference mates forever.

OU, OSU and Tech all still want to be in the PAC. KU, KSU and ISU would harvest and sell their grandma's organs for a B1G invite.

CU, NU, A&M and MU were all just fortunate enough that we had enough value to write our own tickets out of the B12. Had the PAC agreed to take OSU and OU when they wanted out too, there would be no more B12.

Sure, every conference has it's big egos, but they also have competent commisioners who keep those egos in check. Ohio State is unquestionably the B1G's marquee program right now, but you don't see the Buckeye's being allowed to run the conference as they please.

Utah is similarly thrilled to be emancipated from BYU and allowed to chart their own course.

I just found the real reason for the rivalry ending. Utah couldn't tolerate this

Tx-OU never drew A&M numbers? Laughable. You might have outgained it on ratings as the thanksgiving game was often unopposed in its time slot and Tx-OU is a midday October game. Technicality at best.

Well said 10th. I like the addition of West Virginia to the Big 12 but I'm still holding out hope for a PAC invite.
