Finally unexpecting Americans, stuffing their faces on Thanksgiving will be spared from that horrifying sight of seeing Texas A&M co-eds mugging down on National Television during meals. Now they'll wait till later that evening to feel sick to their stomachs.
Texas and Texas A&M will return their Thanksgiving Day rivalry to where it was a long time ago, and by a long time ago, before 1996. New Aggie Coach Mike Sherman, who remembers what it was like watching the first of the 115 Lone Star Rivalries when he was a teenager, is very excited. "I am very excited," Sherman said.
The game will be in primetime on ESPN, which apparently means ABC didn't want to carry the game anymore. I don't know why they didn't want to nationally televise a 9-3 team playing a 6-6 team every year. I just don't. Probably to make way for that new Thanksgiving Hannah Montana special*.
No word on whether Texas will horribly under achieve against the Aggies at night like they do during the day.
*May not actually be a Hannah Montana special.
