University of Texas student body held vote about bringing back A&M rivalry, 97% voted yes
quote:

The University of Texas at Austin Student Government sent out an email to the student body Tuesday morning asking for students to weigh-in on whether they’d like to see an annual rival football game between Texas and Texas A&M reinstated.

Students can share their thoughts through the survey in a university-wide referendum Wednesday. In all, 96.71 percent of 7,509 votes said “yes” to bringing back the rivalry game.

Student body Vice President Micky Wolf said this idea has been in the works for around seven months. Student leaders have met with both university administration and the athletics department who’ve told SGA that rebooting the game would be a possibility. In fact, some of the questions on the survey came directly from questions university leaders told student government they had for the student body.

“If we really bring people together and show people this is uniting of Aggie and Longhorn students, I think it will go a long way toward making the decision makers kind of finalize it and make the decision,” Wolf said.

Have to applaud Texas for being the bigger man here

Not only are they the bigger fish, they're open to restoring the relationship with the smaller program that ducked them.

I don't often support the Horns, but they're showing how to lead from the front in Texas

That’s jus cause you know they’ll do you like LSU does. Never win a single game for about 10 years in the series.

Yeah, being afraid of the flagship school in your state isn't a good look. And to be honest, I think it's beneath an SEC member. Just my two cents.

Don’t do it Aggs. It’s a teasip trap to take 70% of the gate.

UT is about to be a monster again.

A&M is scared.

Weakening our SoS to play a Big 12 basement-dweller is pretty scary

Admittedly, I have most respect for the aTm program.
At least they are trying to play with the big boys.
UT ran and hid.

Poll our student body and it would be 15% or less.

obviously they would choose this now that the team is on the rise and not two years ago when a&m would have whipped their ass

Why is Aggie scared of Texas? They've surpassed them as a program yet are still afraid to play them? Weird
