Texas Politician Creates A Bill To Force Texas-Texas A&M To Play In Football

Football in the state of Texas is like a religion and a Texas State politician is about to show how serious they take it.  Conference expansion caused Texas A&M to relocate to the South Eastern Conference and leave the Big 12.

Ryan Guillen, a Democrat from House District 31, filed a bill Monday that would require Texas and Texas A&M to once again face each other in football every year.

The rivalry dates back to 1894 and, the schools had played annually since 1915.

“This game is as much a Texas tradition as cowboy boots and barbeque,” Guillen, an A&M graduate,said in a statement to ESPN. “The purpose of the bill is to put the ‘eyes of Texas upon’ our two greatest universities to restore this sacred Texas tradition.

“I think the people of Texas want a game, and we’re trying to get them one.”

So much for focusing on gun control or immigration.
