quite the contrary. you are a smart man dennis.. therefore, i am certain that you know that i harbor absolutely no ill will towards rice university. when i was in college, i had to perform many business related projects at rice u. i have always loved the entire institution, and i am extremely proud that rice university is a distinct member as per the houston community.
my initial statements were in relation to patterson's silly season rhetoric that "playing aTm shall be detrimental to the TEXAS brand". any real adult should hereby realize just how ridiculous that sentiment is. steve patterson, has been voicing his opinions regarding aTm since day one. if he so chooses not to want to engage with the aggies upon the gridiron field of play... then so be it. just be a man and openly admit it! (enough as per this silly brand crap) although, his head football coach openly contradicts his silly statements all the time. coach strong, simply harbors no problem engaging aTm upon the field of play. he doesn't sit around conjuring up ridiculous sentiments as a means to avoid playing them.
