Re: Frisco bowl it is!

Certainly better than Boise Enjoy this one, it might be the last for awhile. Really? Some of you must have forgotten how far we have come in the past 10 years. Sure, there are some things that need to be figured out in the off season, but complaining after a potential 8 win season is a bit harsh. U...

Re: The problem this year....

Yup, it’s not so much that they lost that makes me feel so sad as it is the way that they lost. I can’t remember a recent Aggie team that has just rolled over the way they did last night. There was little effort, and even less heart. I felt the same way against Air Force and BYU.

Re: Boise State Ticket Prices

I bought several over on the west side and gave my east side tickets away to friends. 3,000 seats at $10 is better than 3,000 emp...

Re: How to beat AFA

The secret to beating Air Force is to get up on them fast. If ever there was a game to pull out trick plays and long bombs early on this is it. This will force them to throw the ball to play catch up. Besides that, you need good linebacker play to beat the option. I think we have the personnel to st...

Re: Defending Love

The offensive line is not good this year. opposing teams can rush 3-4 guys and still regularly get pressure on Love, not to mention, they are not opening up any running lanes for the backs. However, a good coordinator can help make up for this. our offense is so vanilla that it's painful to watch. I...
