"They left," Dodds said. "They're the ones that decided not to play us. We get to decide when we play again. I think that's fair. If you did a survey of our fans about playing A&M, they don't want to. It's overwhelming. I know. I hear it. Our fans are important to us. I think there's got to be a period where things get different. I think there's too many hard feelings."
Ok, so now we care about what the fans think??? F you, you self serving a-hole. I'm so beyond tired of this guys's schtick. Move on already.
I would love to play A&M on Thanksgiving again every year. Texas Tech and TCU don't quite fit the bill.
Not the attention getter that A&M is. How about moving OU/texas to Turkey Day....LOL? Whooooooo Nelly.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
No argument from me.
He is part of the old, stale crowd in the AD.
I'm surprised this hasn't been thrown around more. Is it not a possibility?
Getting away from the State Fair is a non-starter.
A pathetically transparent and inept attempt at firing up the hoopleheads in the Texas fanbase. He needs to keep his mouth shut.
Deloss is such a joke that almost everytime he speaks 80% of Longhorn fans cringe and dislike him even more. Most reasonable, decent people wouldn't put up with that crap...either he needs the money or he truly doesn't give a damn....
I like his attitude on that issue but it's BS.
We would have been forced to play aggy in the Cotton Bowl except the stars aligned for us and the gooners got invited to that beat down.
Thank you. I could not be so kind.

I actually think this would be the most logical move to be honest. It is the signature game of the Big 12 and there's only one Thanksgiving College Football Game at this time. If you want to be outside the box, move one of the other in-state schools to the neutral site game at the State fair since it is the TX state fair. You remove OU even more out of the DFW area with this move while providing a marquis game at the end of the year.
Playing ou at the State Fair is tradition. Let's don't mess with it.
Bottom line is that DeLoss says the same thing about aTm that KU does about playing Mizzou. Must be the XII party line. It makes both DeLoss and Sheahon Zenger come off like overwrought, scorned lovers.
Deloss is speaking the truth. He visited the Houston lunch buch and asked who wants to play Aggie. Not one person raised their hand. He took note.
Terrible idea. OU would just get another game there so the thought of shutting them out of the DFW area is silly at best. They'd move a home game to the Cotton Bowl around the time of the State Fair. It was what was threatened when Texas and OU looked to be going different places last summer. Texas OU belongs in the Cotton Bowl. Move that game and it loses a lot more significance. I don't want Texas moving another home game to the Fair just to push the best game of the year to a time later in the year and then have to do home and home with OU. I'd be fine just giving up Thanksgiving Day all together. It's not worth it to play a rotation of lesser "rivals".
Yup - I have no reason to ever step foot in College Station. It's just cowshit and Dixie Chicken in that hick village.
TCU is an upgrade from that craphole College Station... why else would their own QB have a Longhorn tatoo and choose to attend school online?

Thats why the majority of us wont be able to see 3 football games next year...
I am in the same boat. Insufferable. Tell'em what they want to hear and remind them of 27-25. I do not want to play them. Tired of the poor me S@#$%!! Look how they are with one good year.
I also can't wait for the big November game against Sam Houston State.o wuold go to see this match. I bought all baseball tickets from TicketVistas for a bargain.
I hope that was not a shot at agreta band - Mott The Hoople
Or Professor Peter Schickele
