JB TexasEx: "I congratulated...I heard nothing...Why is that?"

 

Well, JB...this is just a guess, but it might be that you are considered a bit "annoying" by some your Aggie friends - and maybe even your non-Aggie friends.  Consider as evidence your postings on this blog....a bit excessive, perhaps.

 

I certainly congratulated my Longhorn friends after the NC game...and I was sincere in my good tidings!

BTW, my original post intended to convey that the "good-natured rivalry" had already "turned sour".....long before realignment...significant distinction.

Yep. You nailed, John....and did your homework, as usual! I'm about as 100% Aggie as you will find...and I'm old enough to say that I've been that way for "decades." So, fwiw, I don't care a hoot whether we ever play the Horns again. We enjoyed some terrific years of a FRIENDLY, fun rivalry on the field "back in the day" - but that has not been the case in the past 10 years or so. Perhaps if Horns fans can "get over it" and give us some respect for what we have accomplished in the past year (they seem to be the ONLY ones in the country that can't see it...) we might someday have a mutually respectful rivalry befitting both of these great universities. That would be terrific and I'm all for it. (I personally believe there is a better chance of that now that we are in different conferences, btw) If not - no big deal. IMO, our new SEC family is amazing: fan bases, venues, teams and traditions - we Ags feel right at home. Makes it easy, really, to leave the dysfunctional family behind and move on. Oh, yeah...and the goldmine doesn't hurt either ;-)

I'm a major fan of MrSEC as John is absolutely right that he bought into the SEC-Aggie marriage long before it was fashionable! And...this site stands above all others, IMHO, in terms of its thoughtful, educated commenters. (Well, that was true before we arrived and "JB the horn" insisted on tagging along. John, we owe you and your readers an apology for that!) I agree, of course, that this just CAN'T be the work of a true Ag...I certainly hope not any way! Best line I've seen today was in response to the suggestion that the mystery buyer was the Longhorn Network. "Impossible." (said tweet-from an Oregon fan, btw) "None of us would have seen it then..." chuckle, chuckle

John, Thanks for spreading this bit of "good news" in the midst of such an awful tragedy. Never more proud to be an Aggie!
