Still Too Premature to Talk A&M, Arkansas in Arlington. Or Is It?

Still Too Premature to Talk A&M, Arkansas in Arlington. Or Is It?

So, Mike Sherman's the new coach down at Texas A&M. Sure, fine, whatever. This morning's Houston Chronicle has the potentially bigger story concerning the Aggies, at least as far as most locals sans Aggie ties are concerned: Sunday's Dallas Morning News story that reported A&M and Arkansas are "close to signing a six- to eight-year deal" to play at the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium beginning in 2009 was "premature."

The Chron reports it's far from a done deal, as Arkansas athletic director Frank Broyles told the paper yesterday that his school and A&M were "considering" a deal to play at Jerryworld sometime in the undefined future, and that "when asked about reports that a deal is done to renew the series between the two old Southwest Conference foes, Broyles said that was premature." As in, "Count on it -- it is not [a done deal]," according to the AD. And, I know, that Houston headline is misleading: "Aggies, Arkansas mull series in Dallas." Fine, Arlington, then. --Robert Wilonsky
