Texas A&M chancellor John Sharp keen to resume Texas rivalry

Just days after Texas head coach Tom Herman requested the renewal of the historic Aggie-Longhorn rivalry, Texas A&M University System chancellor John Sharp has stated his desire to see the annual competition on the gridiron resume.

In an interview with Texas Monthly, Sharp touched on many topics concerning Texas A&M's flagship College Station campus, including the Aggie football program and the likelihood that the rivalry game, which was discontinued after Texas A&M left the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference in the summer of 2012, would ever be played again.

“I know a lot of people would like to see A&M play UT again,” Sharp said. “Not the kids here necessarily, but a lot of the older alumni still ask about it.”

... Sharp won’t rule out the possibility of a rematch sometime in the future. “I’d like to put the UT–A&M game back together. I know the governor wants to put it back together. UT wants to put it back together.”

He thought about it for a minute, and a grin spread across his face.

“Man, can you imagine how much money we could make off that game?”

Despite his eagerness, Sharp noted there are a multitude of factors that must be considered before the Aggies and Longhorns can hit the field together and cited A&M's rigorous SEC schedule as a major roadblock.

This mindset is exactly why we have 60,000 students and a plummeting academic reputation.

I'm totally good with this! Only 3 conditions:
1) t.u. Pays A&M $1M/year
2) SEC referees
3) All games at Kyle Field

John Spencer Sharp is a Democratic politician from Texas, who has served since 2011 as the chancellor of the Texas A&M University System.

Puke. I wonder how much he donated to the Clinton campaign?

Staff is just stirring sh*t because it's summer. It's pretty simple if Sharp wants it, then we definitely shouldn't.

As the other thread, we should never play the d*mn sips again. They cannot be trusted and we shouldn't save them from the hell of their own arrogance.

Since Sharp mentioned the governor, maybe there should be a letter/email campaign to inform him that a lot of voters would not be happy with resuming the game. I think they have long memories, too.

I'd say he's more of a politician...meaning, he can't be trusted...like tea sips, come to think of it!
