11:00 AM ET 02.15 | Kyle Field is undergoing a big-time transition. Because of that, so is the Aggies' annual Maroon & White game. Texas A&M will not hold a spring game this year or next because of Kyle's redevelopment. "After careful consideration and in consultation with Coach (Kevin) Sumlin and the football coaching staff, we have decided not to play a traditional spring football game this year or next as Kyle Field is being redeveloped," A&M athletic director Eric Hyman said in a statement. "We appreciate the cooperation of the SEC office in considering a waiver to play a spring game off campus, but other factors including NCAA rules and regulations regarding contact with prospective student-athletes also played into our final decision."

A&M will not attain upper echelon status in the SEC with this attitude.

I don't understand. They have known about the stadium work for months if not years and they couldn't work it out? Guess they really did not want to have one.
