Re: National Title Odds

Does anyone get concerned about complacency with this team stemming from this amount of hype. We bring back a lot of last year's team who pretty much got it handed to them against Washington. I hope the team is not buying into all this hype. I love the is team and think if the new guys come along a...

Aggie fans in Tiger Stadium

Who here is going to the game at LSU? I will be making the trip, and can't wait for my first SEC football experience.

Will we have a good Aggie contingent there? What section are people sitting in?

Re: WTF - 3rd and 4 with 2:30 left

The irony is that we ran that horribly low percentage play (in terms of our chances of obtaining a first down) in order to make WF burn their timeout, but then it was us desperately calling timeouts to keep time on the clock in the final minute.
