When asked today about not playing the Aggies on Thursday, the senior defensive end had this to say:
“I feel sorry for A&M,” Okafor said. “We still have a big-time game and they're missing out.”
What about their rivalry with Missouri? Aren't they cross divisional rivals?
I love it! A&M plays on Saturday, do they not?
Their game day was last weekend against Sam Houston State.
Really? Anyone not wearing burnt orange glasses would laugh at this. Maybe our players don't even remember what a "Big-Time" game is anymore.
I really want a player to say "I would have really liked to play them, but unfortunately they and Nebraska got tired of getting beaten by us and ran off".
Stupid is, as stupid does. Pretty sure the person that said that didn't have burnt orange glass on. Still, it fits you like a glove. Pick any metric. Okafor exceeds you in it. Ok, except stupidity.
I stand corrected VaHorn, you go back to feeling sorry for A&M that they play on Saturday and make sure you keep whistling past the graveyard
Isn't he correct? Texas does have a big-time game (only college game on tv) and the Aggies are an afterthought the last two weekends of the season.
Reality isn't welcome in many circles.
Texas has two big games coming up in TCU and K State. Aggy has 1-AA Sam Houston State and a Missouri team that never won anything in the Big 12 in their last two games. Okafor has it right.
I read that and saw Alex Okafor not playing on thanksgiving. You had me a little nervous there!
You think playing an FCS opponent in SHS and Missouri big games vs what Texas last two are? I don't believe a FBS has any business playing a FCS team period. Texas might play weak teams like NM or WY but UT doesn't play a scout team like a FCS even if they a top 3 FCS. aTm better watch out for the MO cats they still have something to play for 5/6 or at least a good way to go out.

#Aggy Tears. Careful, they are addictive.
The Ags should be ashamed of themselves, it's not about anything other than money to the Ags. Whom ran like like little girls when they thought they weren't getting paid enough for Texas to whip them. Texas ATM at the end if the day left, Texas didn't. I enjoyed rubbing the beating Texas gave to my co workers and friends, but all is gone.
Yikes! When was the last time Texas played a ranked team on Thanksgiving? At least with TCU there is a chance of that happening. (And don't say that A&M is ranked this year. You know as well as I that you'd be sporting 4 losses by now if you were still in the Big 12).
You have a point about Texas two yrs ago. The worst team Texas has fielded in 15 yrs. Right after Texas played in a National Champ game Texas lost to Alabama. Yes the team y'all beat two yrs later but wasn't a NCG. Btw when was the last time the Ags have played in one? Yep 1939 my father wasn't even alive, Hawaii and Alaska wasn't even a state att. Yeah all that's history but so is a rivalry game.
Are you gonna be here whining for very long? Just asking. It's the holiday season and I'm really not feeling the whole "I'm a whiny aggy bitch" thing again this year. You boys should really keep too yourself. Nobody, and I mean nobody cares what you boys want or think.
I bet you typed that with a straight face didn't you?
Okafor got caliag22 all stirred up. He's a lot noisier than the other ags were last year. I remember how quiet it was in College Station last year after Case broke off his run. All the Aggies were looking down at their feet because it was another second half collapse. They should rename Kyke Field to McCoy Field after the runs the McCoy brothers made on that turf.
Yep. Only Colorado is sorry they got tapped out of the Big 12. Nebraska, Missouri, and A&M feel good about being able to compete again.
No one with a brain around here gives a shit about what anyone from A&M thinks about anyone or anything.
Hagar's mullet is just one more idiot added to the ignore list.
The Buffalos have tapped out period. Nebraska fits in the big 10, Mo fits in the bottom of whatever conference their in and A&M should've never left the Big 12.
I cringe when I see an aggy talking noise about the $EC & the Turkey Day game on this Texas board because the ATM has been irrelevant since the old SWC days... the chest pounding is really old!! No one here has any regret the ATM has left... good riddance.
Yeah dude, not an aggy...but whatever, a different opinion doesn't make one an aggy necessarily.
The original point has long since been lost...but I for one do not feel sorry for ATM, for a number of reasons...
This thread, and at times, this site (despite the good info from mods), is not a place for discourse.
I know you're saying that in jest but from top to bottom the Big 12 has been the best conference and toughest conference for the past 5 years and this isnt even up for debate
Sure the sec has nice winning streak going on but they are top heavy its lsu, bama, florida then the rest, hell you guys are proving that. A mid level big 12 team that never really saw any success while here, is competitive its first year in the sec
