For months now, Texas Tech and Texas A&M have been at war over this vet school. Texas A&M doesn’t think the state needs another vet school. Texas Tech thinks the state would benefit immensely. I’m not smart enough to make that decision, but things are getting pretty ugly between the two schools. With Chancellor Duncan’s retirement announcement earlier this week, came theories about just how much Texas A&M was involved in this decision.
I’m told by very credible sources that @SecretaryPerry conducted effort to oust Duncan on behalf of @TAMU’s John Sharp. 4 of the 5 were then-Gov Rick Perry appointees (Francis, Hammonds, Steinmetz, Long); 5th (Huckabee) was appointed to another position by Perry. #vetschool https://t.co/JKzjIKjKup— Jay Leeson (@jayleeson) August 14, 2018
There’s so much back and forth on the topic. I think it’s time to settle this like adults. Let’s take it to the football field. Winner takes the vet school.
It has been seven years since Texas Tech faced Texas A&M on the football field. Every year, early bowl game predictions put the two schools against each other in some bowl game, but that changes by the end of the season. What if this is the moment we have all been waiting for?
Rivalry games are always exhilarating. It doesn’t matter what the season looks like for each team. When you walk into a rivalry game, you play harder and with more emotion than in any other game all season. Rivalry games are where you see 0-8 football teams bring down the undefeated champions.
Texas Tech had some difficulties on the field in the last few seasons, but they are out to prove those issues are behind them. Texas A&M is starting off the season with high expectations and a brand new $75 million coach. Both teams are starting off with a big ego and a lot to prove. Add a vet school into the equation and let’s make it more interesting.
Should Texas Tech continue the fight for a vet school?

Yes. The state needs it!
No. Too much work and money.
I don’t care. I just want to anger some Aggies.
