| SEC Rant|| re: Why does A&M continue to use the young excuse on defense? - aggressor on 10/17/14 at 12:04 pm|
It's relative. We are a better D than last year but we also had nowhere to go but up. Our playmakers are almost all Freshman or Sophomores and they have beaten out a lot of Jr/Srs for play time or starting jobs. The big killer was losing 3 Sophomores to dumbassery as well as AJ Hilliard (another...

[quote]There will be no east/west if the conference is expanded to 16 teams.
Also, NC St and Va Tech would be fall back plans if UVA and UNC won't come.
I'm constantly amazed why people are excited about NC State btw. Outside of being good folks in general, having a decent...

There is some quality melt on this thread.
Kenny has had a couple of rough outings and he may not be the long term answer but he is learning. You simply can't compare the old Tech offenses or certainly Texas HS football to the types of defenses Kenny is playing against. Experience matters. I...

All indications are that Mom likes Sumlin as well, she just likes sip and Charlie better. Thus I don't think there is an "I hate Aggy" situation. It's pretty clear Malik likes A&M better and all his boys are going to be Aggies.
Be nice for Bob to go ahead go Barry Switzer and "hang half a huner...
| SEC Rant|| re: MSU - A&M winner- Wins the west? - aggressor on 9/30/14 at 1:38 pm|
If there was ever a year where it is a crap shoot to predict who wins the West at this point it is this one. I could even see LSU getting their sea legs and winning out.
I think you will end up with at least 2 teams with 1 loss, just too rough to expect teams to be able to stay up for so many to...
| SEC Rant|| re: No prediction, State will throttle the Aggies - aggressor on 9/30/14 at 11:48 am|
[quote]State's lines on both sides are very good. Great DL depth. Solid secondary. Can run the ball. Can pass the ball. I think State wins this one and the Aggie fans remember they are just another average SEC team.[/quote]
Just out of curiosity, how does a "solid secondary" have one of the worst...

What does tRant think about our chances to take down the ...

A&M can only carry Arkansas so much. You had the crazy FSU/NCSU game going on as well and the Texas game was on at the same time which split up some of the casual fans in Texas. FWIW though they actually broke away from the Texas game in Austin to show the end of the A&M/Arkie game just to show ho...

So the overwhelming majority of students are top 10%

It is actually illegal in the State of Texas for legacy status to be considered as an admission criteria for Public...

Sumlin has this guy at practice this week to get the team prepared so we are covered.
In truth Dak makes me nervous as running QB's have given us problems. I think we score 50 on your DB's though and that's the difference....

Ags 630 yards of total offense.
Gonna be hard to get that many yards when you only have the ball for about 17 minutes.[/quote]
A&M scored 5 TD's in a little over 6 minutes in their last game and has a ton of scoring drives under 2 minutes.
I think this game looks a lot like Sou...

Arkansas has the biggest offensive line in all of football. I'd imagine we will gash your front 7 for much of the game.
Perhaps you don't recall last year when Johnny basically just handed the ball off to our RB's and they ran all over Arkie. T Wi...
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| re: SO SLOPPY - aggressor on 9/16/14 at 9:39 am|
Not going to panic much on Hill's deep throws or throwing over the middle. He threw a really nice deep ball to RSJ on the sideline that should have been caught. The TD pass to Reynolds with the comeback "Mike Evans special" was nice. Remember last year as well he had that great throw to JaQuay on...

I think the ESPN thing is an interesting point but more of a sidebar.
The biggest issue is demographics and declining interest at the HS level in football compared to Southern states. The Big 1G states are declining in population and the population they have is aging. They just don't have as ma...

Realize that A&M's first TD was 13 plays for 80 yards and primarily running and still took well under 4 minutes of clock time. You don't see A&M defensive players get tired often but you see teams defending A&M begging for mercy against a HUNH that spreads the field and goes up and down. Remember ...
| SEC Rant|| re: REMINDER: Texas A&M was outgained in total yardage by Rice. - aggressor on 9/15/14 at 11:04 am|
Actually all 3 of the starting LB's were out for the Rice game. 2 of the 3 will be back for Arkie, most importantly Mastro though. He is the QB of the defense and the big boy that can plug the gap in the middle.
As for the betting I don't like to bet on games but A&M -28 against SMU is damn nea...
