Re: When Stupid and Clueness Go Down Right to the Bone

I wasn't convinced about the blue turf until I saw it in person ... it's beautiful ... Turf is not, and never will be grass. Why does it have to be green?

Re: Give the Ref and Aggie Jersey!!!

His foot was clearly out. We're just lucky the ref threw his hat indicating the infraction well before the ball was ever thrown to the end-zone. Would a ref have the guts to make that call if it happened later in the play? I don't know, but we're lucky his hat was off before the ball was even thrown!
