Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M fans have their reasons for not continuing the rivalry, but Deloss Dodds wants to set the record straight from the University of Texas perspective.
Deloss Dodds did an interview with The Daily Texan about Texas A&M and if the rivalry will continue:
“I think we’ll play sometime,” Dodds said. “I don’t know when it will happen or how it will happen, but I’m sure it will happen.”
Deloss Dodds went on to talk about how Texas fans feel about Texas A&M:
“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.
