Aggie tweet takes jab at Longhorns

The Aggies and Longhorns are not playing each other, but the rivalry is still strong between the schools.

The late night Saturday tweet drew nearly 1,400 retweets and the comment found its way back to Austin.

Texas head coach Mack Brown, who has bigger issues this week following the firing of defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, took some time to address Hurd’s comment Wednesday.

Or at least brush it off.

"We are the university of Texas in this state and will be, regardless of what some (Texas A&M) kid tweets," Brown told the Austin American-Statesman.

Wonder if that will still be the case if the Aggies can upset No. 1-ranked Alabama Saturday at Kyle Field.
