Coaches and media convened in Destin, Florida on Tuesday to chop it up about anything and everything during SEC Spring Meetings. One juicy tidbit from the session comes from Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin in regards to the Aggies renewing their football rivalry with the Texas Longhorns. According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, Sumlin believes future games between the schools will eventually happen.

Sumlin’s comments come not three months after Longhorns coach Charlie Strong expressed similar sentiments.
“It’s all about the two ADs getting together and getting that figured out,” Strong said. “When you look at it, it’s been such a huge rivalry game. … I think at some point it will get worked out.
“When there’s been so much tradition there, you’d like to see it continue on. That’s my feeling on it. I’d love to play it.”
So here we are. Both coaches want it. Both fan bases want it. Let’s lock Steve Patterson and Eric Hyman in a room and not let them out until this thing is settled. Make it work, people.
It may not be the OU Texas rivalry, but things look to be heating up between A&M and the Longhorns.
