Texas A&M announced on Friday via AggieAthletics.com that the traditional spring football game will not be held in 2014 or 2015.
quote:

“After careful consideration and in consultation with Coach 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,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Eric Hyman said. “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.”
Head coach Kevin Sumlin had this to say:
quote:

“I am disappointed we will not be able to hold a few scrimmages or the spring game inside Kyle Field the next couple of years,” Aggie head football coach Kevin Sumlin said. “Our fans, the 12th Man, have been very supportive of the Kyle Field redevelopment as we take one of the greatest college stadiums and make it even better, and louder.”
The Aggies will begin spring football drills on Friday, Feb. 28th.

A&M doesn't want their fans to see just how bad the team is going to be next year.

Bama would never do this. What would that sell out crowd do on a saturday afternoon in April in that case?

with the ease of getting information on the progress of players nowdays, the spring game has become unnecessary...I am suprised more teams don't cancel the spring game all together....
