I think A&M's move to the SEC was a good move but it would be a shame to see the rivalry between Texas and A&M become a thing of the past. It was one of the great rivalries that defined college football. Conference realignments need to respect historic state and regional rivalries; they are a key factor in the success and popularity of college football.
The UT and A&M rivalry should continue, regardless of the conference each team plays in. The rivalry brought great excitement and joy to many Texans across the state and nation, and with out that rivalry, there is really nothing that compares to it. It needs to come back so that the state of Texas can finally have something to fight about.
It was one of the most watched games all year, even though it wasn't even a bowl game. Both teams played at their best, even though Texas won most of the time. This rivalry is a tradition that has gone on for almost 100 years, ad it should not be ended by one of the teams moving to a different conference.
