Hook ‘em – One Last Time?

Texas Longhorns LogoWhat a great way for the Horns to (in all probability) wrap up this rivalry, taking out the Aggies 27-25.

Justin Tucker kicked a 40-yard field goal as time expired to give the Longhorns a 27-25 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday night in the likely end of a more than century-old rivalry.

Texas A&M’s last Big 12 game and the 118th meeting between the bitter rivals before the Aggies depart for the Southeastern Conference next season was a thriller befitting one of college football’s oldest and most storied matchups.

The series ends with the Longhorns leading 76-37-5 and Brown improved his career record against the Aggies to 10-4 with Thursday’s win.

I would like to think the two schools could put aside conference affiliations and bickering, and figure out some common ground in the next few years in order to resume this outstanding series. Time heals all wounds; mostly.

Or maybe as Burnt Orange Nation put things, it’s time for the Aggies to GTFO (of the Big 12):

There are wins, and then there are wins. This was one for the ages, a dramatic exclamation point that perfectly encapsulated the dynamic between these two schools. The Aggies, roster loaded up for a BCS run, limp meekly away from the Big 12 after a pathetic 6-6 season, the final indignity a home loss to a rebuilding Texas squad with no offense to speak of.

It’s as proud a day to be a Longhorn as it is dispiriting to be an Aggie.

Texas A&M: The GTFO Tour is complete. Good luck in the SEC. /snicker

Pretty funny coming from an ‘SEC guy’ – although as a native Texan that grew up in Georiga, the Longhorns have always been my 1B to the Bulldogs 1A.

Hook ‘em!!!
