Now that his tenure with Nebraska is officially underway, he wants to stop talking about his former Longhorns.

Speaking with the media on Tuesday, he made a formal request to no longer be asked questions about Texas.

“I’m very close to those over at Texas and I wish those guys best of luck this season,” said Thompson via Saturday Tradition. “I’m still close to a lot of the players … I respect them, but moving forward, I don’t really want to be asked questions about Texas because I’m focused on Nebraska and moving forward with this team.”

Thompson referred to a question he was asked last week about the teams’ depth. When he said that Nebraska had more depth than Texas, he said the Longhorn media took it the wrong way, so he doesn’t want to “stir the pot.”
