Re: Love you Gary and Ena

Why are the Aggies the only team in the country that has to deal with injuries? It's totally not fair.

Re: Onside Kick, good or bad call?

An onside kick would have been fine, kicking it away would have been fine. Whatever the hell they did, was probably the worst thing that they could have done. I am so confused.

Re: Coach Andersen

Said it at the time, said it during the season, saying it now. Wrong hire, potentially disastrous hire.

When a rich friend has to coerce the only program in the country that would even answer GA's phone call it's obviously the wrong hire.

While the "exes and ohs" have obviously been a problem, that has paled in comparison to our lack of heart, leadership and discipline.

Not sure that we'd see that with last year's staff.
