We don't have much of a history with Texas A&M in either of the two main sports. We're 2-1 all-time vs. them in football, and the game most of us remember is the 1995 Alamo Bowl, in which Brian Griese's late TD pass to Amani Toomer wasn't enough in a 22-20 loss. But good things came just two years later.
Our lone basketball game vs. Texas A&M came in 1962, when we beat them, 82-79. Bill Buntin was on that team, and it was the year before Cazzie Russell started playing. I think that Grayson Allen was a freshman at Duke, too.
As noted in a previous thread, the main sports connection between Michigan and Texas A&M came in January of 1982, when the Aggies and their oil money tried to hire Bo Schembechler away. I was a sports reporter at the Daily at the time, and this story was HUGE. In the history of Michigan football, it's still huge. There was a story about this in the HTTV issue a couple years ago.
Texas A&M was offering an ungodly amount of money – something like $3 million over 10 years! Incredible! After mulling over the offer, Bo took to the microphone at a press conference, and we still didn't know what he was going to do. I was there for the presser. Bo actually started to tear up when he said that there are things in this world that are more important than money - "and one of them's Michigan."
