re: The Quagmire that is Texas A&M - twk
[quote]There isn't a single Texas team in the Top 25 at the time. It's time people realize Texas talent isn't all that it's cracked up to be. That's not to say some really good player aren't born there but not to the extent people pretend. [/quote]There's some truth to that on the defensive side of ...

re: This is the last Turkey day game for a while for LSU - twk
I think the A&M AD will probably veto a Friday game. We set aside 32,000 seats for students, and past experience has shown that it's very difficult to get them back to campus for a Friday afternoon game (and it seems to be the case that CBS has dibs on Black Friday, and wants it's game in the aftern...

re: To the Aggie Fans... - twk
[quote]Behind the anonymity of a board people can get obnoxious but I agree with the OP. Most Aggie are nice in person, I know a lot and with very few exceptions they are nice folks, like most people are at the end of the day. I give this to Texans. In most States rural folks are nicer than the urba...

re: Alabama is not bringing their full "Million Dollar" band to BR - twk
[quote]They probably made this decision in the spring when Alleva was telling everyone that opposing bands would not be allowed to march at halftime. Bama probably opened up the extra seats pretty quickly. [/quote] This. Maybe he has Three Doors Down coming back for an encore. Nothing says college f...

re: My Weekend CSB and Texas A&M fans. - twk
I've yet to have any really bad experiences in the SEC--Arkansas fans in Fayetteville were perhaps a little less friendly, but still, mostly indifferent to our presence. I think one reason why it is different is that the number of fans who travel is so much larger than in other conferences. The Big ...

re: Doomsday scenario: College Football Playoff - twk
That would be the doomsday scenario. I've always felt that it would take an extreme set of circumstances for more than one conference champion to be shut out of the playoff, but I suppose it could happen. My guess would be: 1. Bama 2. Wisconsin 3. Michigan 4. Louisville I think Louisville ...

re: Kentucky gets approved for new $49M baseball stadium - twk
Nice. I'm thinking there's a good chance that A&M's next trip up there would be 2019--hope it's not 2018, as I would rather wait for the new park, but I do need to make it up to Lexington some time....

[quote]They've played 3 quality teams and only put up 13, 16, & 18 points. The idea they've "figured out" the offense is a mirage of beating 3 crappy teams badly. Will be interesting to see them play Mississippi as a better gauge[/quote] I don't think they've undergone any kind of mystical trans...

At 23 in the AP poll, they are probably slightly underrated. They ought to end up in the top 15 if they finish strong. Not a team anyone should look forward to playing....

[quote]Wording strongly implies that win % denominator is all 8 sceduled games[/quote]If everyone plays 8 games, then that provision is kind of redundant, and, in fact, it really isn't determined on percentage, it's wins (or tie breakers). The truth is that this provision was a holdover from the ...

re: The real loser of LSU/UF deal is A&M - twk
If A&M is going to win the West this year (which obviously would require us to beat Bama and Ole Miss), we'll either wrap it up Nov. 12 or it won't happen. LSU game will be a non-factor either way. The only way there is any suspense on Thanksgiving is if we're looking at a potential three-way tie, ...
