Texas AD on A&M series: 'We get to decide'
[dropcap]U[/dropcap]niversity of Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds has some strong words for both Texas A&M and the SEC.
In an article by Christian Corona of the Daily Texan, Dodds said that he would like for Texas and Texas A&M to meet again on the gridiron, but it will be on the Longhorns’ terms.
“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.”
Dodds also believes that Big 12 teams have a tougher road to the national title games than the Aggies and the rest of the SEC.
“It’s hard to get out of it,” Dodds said of the Big 12’s round-robin schedule. “But if you get out of it, you’re straight into the national championship. If you can go straight through our conference, it’s a direct line to the national championship. In the SEC, Alabama hadn’t play Georgia for four years. So there’s maybe some advantages to it.
“They play some nonconference games late in the season that soften their schedule. The Big 12 is a tougher road to get there than the SEC because of their scheduling abilities.”
