Texas A&M Regent Suggests Aggies Should Play Texas So They Can Have A "Cupcake" Game

After back-to-back crushing losses, Texas sits with a 1-3 record heading into Big 12 play. As a result, a regent of the school's biggest former rival is having a bit of fun at the Longhorns' expense.

According to Bevo Beat, the American-Statesman's Texas blog, Texas A&M regent Tony Buzbee took a shot at the Longhorns this week on Facebook, suggesting that the Aggies should schedule them so they have "cupcake" games. It's a strong troll job.

Here's a transcript of the post, which Bevo Beat has a photo of. 

"I have not spoken to the other Aggie Regents about this, yet; I haven't spoken to the Athletic Director, nor have I spoken to Coach Sumlin about it either. Understand, I'm only ONE of nine votes on the Board of Regents, and the Regents typically do not involve themselves in football schedules. That being said, I am going to advocate that the Aggies play Texas again in the near future. Because of our brutal SEC West schedule, where we play the likes of Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU, etc., the Aggies need some cupcake games to rest and heal. In my view, Texas is just as weak if not weaker than the non-conference games we play, so we may as well play them."

Texas leads the all-time series against Texas A&M, 76-37-5, though it's hard to deny that the Aggies have looked like the better team this year.

We're not sure this is going to move the needle regarding a potential rekindling of the rivalry, but it'll certainly get people talking.
