    Good. It will be the only game this year that I hope Texas wins.

    They should still play in basketball or something. I'd like to see us play Nebraska in hoops.

    Sounds like it's up to individual coaches:

    Byrne also said his coaches in all sports are checking with their counterparts at Texas in terms of nonconference scheduling. So far heís only heard back from menís tennis, and the Longhorns have declined the offer.

    Good. There is this huge sentiment among sportswriters that Texas should make every effort to continue to play A&M. But I say to hell with A&M. They walked away, and nobody owes them anything. In fact, I think the entire Big 12 should freeze them out of all sports. That's the price you pay for abandoning your league. Can't have it both ways - greener pastures with a new conference and all your old rivalries too.

    I agree. I hope nobody plays them ever and they suck for eternity. Same with Nebraska. CU doesn't need my help.

    UT AD DeLoss Dodds on A&M: "In my e-mail to Bill Byrne, I wrote that we were not in a position now to look at future football scheduling."

    More Dodds: "We're scheduled out with non-conference games through 2018 and our Big 12 schedule is not yet settled."

    They asked for the divorce, now they can deal with the custody issues.

    Aggie needs Texas for relevance and Texas knows that. Better rewrite that school song of theirs.

    I'd love to see all big 12 teams refuse to play A&M in any sport.

    Who cares... when Mizzou becomes the whores that they are we are likely never to play them again, and it will be no sweat off my back.

    Divorcees call it a clean slate. Maybe they can play themselves.

    Why would anyone in the Big 12 play Nebraska, Colorado, or Texas A&M in any sport? They wanted out. Let them stay out.
