I was at the game and I must say that it was simply amazing. We squeezed 88,000+ into Kyle tonight, it was a record. The place was loud as hell and even though it was 42 degrees, I wasn't cold at all.

Great game by the Ags offensively. McGee made a few dumb throws, but oh well. They managed to score through the passing game repeatedly, and Texas didn't have an answer for it. It is almost as if they were in denial about how powerful our passing attack was (I sure was).

Defensively I have complaints about the late game. The first half was flawless, except for one huge catch and run by Charles. The later playcalling almost allowed Texas to come back on us. In spite of ourselves, we managed to hold them off.

All in all it was a great game and I expect to see it on ESPN Classic at some point. I knew the Ags had what it took to show up the Horns again. There's a Spirit can ne'er be told....

What's the Big 12's tiebreaker? In the Big 10 it is head to head, followed by overall schedule. If OU loses:
OU 5-3, 9-3
Texas 5-3, 9-3
OSU 5-3, 7-5

In the Big 10 OU would still go because OU won the head to head with Texas?

You said Head-to-head THEN overall record. For OU to go, it would have to be head-to-head (no winner), then overall record (OSU eliminated), then back to head-to-head again. Is that how the Big 10 would do it?

Anyway, from the Oklahoman LINK (http://newsok.com/article/3170665)

With Oklahoma's 34-27 loss Saturday night at Texas Tech, there is a chance for a three-way tie in the final Big 12 South standings.


•If OU, Texas and Oklahoma State all finish 5-3 in conference play, Texas will represent the South in the Big 12 championship game at San Antonio on Dec 1.

.....

If three or more teams are tied, steps 1 through 7 will be followed until a determination is made. If only two teams remain tied after any step, the winner of the game between the two tied teams shall be the representative.

1. The records of the three teams will be compared against each other.

2. The records of the three teams will be compared within their division.

3. The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (fourth, fifth and sixth).

4. The records of the three teams will be compared against all common conference opponents.

5. The highest ranked team in the first Bowl Championship Series Poll following the completion of Big 12 regular season conference play shall be the representative.

6. The team with the best overall winning percentage [excluding exempted games] shall be the representative.

7. The representative will be chosen by draw.

I'd like to see a young, hungry coach step in and whip that program into shape so of the names listed, I'd like to see the Boise State coach, Chris Petersen, or West Virginia's, Rich Rodriguez, get the job.

Spurier is a great coach, but he's been to the top of the mountain already and he may not be in a rebuilding mood. Plus Texas is a long way away from Florida.

Tubberville is another Franchoine and Sherman is an NFL coach now.

I dont think it would be hard for him to rebuild, with his name he could bring in some big time recruits.

With the money we will be willing to pay him, with our facilities and the fan base. It will be very interesting to see what happens.

Kyle Field (aka the biggest stadium in TX) + The new Bright Complex and indoor practice field + Texas high school football recruits + 3 million = Hopefully Steve Spurrier.

I would like to see a young, hungry coach also. I've read the rumors that Spurier is the man, but 62 seems a bit old to me to be long term guy. I'd rather bring in some fire to the program. However, the AD office is probably not checking the MB, so I will have to trust that they do the right thing.

Great day to be an Aggie yesterday, sadly that hasn't been the case during the football season often enough the last 5 years.

Dammit...I hate you Mack Brown/Greg Davis. These two are piss poor coaches. The only reason for the success Texas has under them is recruiting. They have enough talent to win 9-10 games every year, but suck at coaching overall. Because of this we are probably stuck with them. Just look at the big games they have won...The Championship game and the Rose Bowl...Vince was the QB. I could have coached a Vince Young led team and won it all.

As far as the tie goes...this article (http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=273270245) seems to indicate that OU will be the representative, not Texas.


If the Sooners lose, there will be a three-way tie for the Big 12 South lead, and the division representative for the league title game would be determined by which team is higher in the next BCS standings. Oklahoma is already ahead, so it's not likely the Sooners would fall behind the Longhorns.

I'd say its up in the air. What's worse for the pollsters; losing to TAMU on the road or OSU at home? Also, if OU loses to OSU, that would most likely help Texas with the computers.

At any rate, it would be fun to see the Mack Brown lobbying campaign back in full swing.

On the first series, they gave up a third and twenty...third and twenty. Good Greif. You can't defend twenty yards...your DBs suck. Mack Brown has nothing to do with the DBs sucking. They ran out the best five or six they had and it wan't good enough this year. Conidering the tallent I thought Mack did a prety decent job with this group getting them to nine wins.

Well kudos to you Aggies. Two in a row that's not a fluke. Well done. So are we going to see a bunch of 38-30 plates this off season ? Or no need to beg for mercy, we got plenty of bandages.

HoustonFrog
11-24-2007, 04:54 PM
My opinion...UT was young and did get to get 9 wins this year BUT

Mack Brown has to be one of the worst big game coaches alive. In non-VY years he has 2-3 games a year where they are unprepared and uninspired. He gets outcoached. Heck in VY years it happened but VY bailed them out. It was his knock pre-VY and it has been the same thing post-VY. Its not like this hasn't happened when they were stacked with talent also. You have 2 weeks vs an A&M team whose offense is pedestrian and you turn McGee into Harrell and you didn't realize that a lame duck coach was going to throw the kitchen sink at you. It isn't like this is the first time. More like the 20th. Talent alone gets them their 9-11 a year but the ones they lose are unexplainable sometimes.

A & M just exposed the warts that have been killing them all season is what I saw. Mack Brown is ranked in the top five or six as far as winning seasons among active coaches go. Mack Brown isn't going anywhere. The aggies get to dance on us this off season. Take it like a man. They for sure earned it.

I knew this was going to be a tough year for UT after what happened in the offseason and early season. You add in all the seniors they've lost, then the injuries, and it's just been a hard year for them. But they found a way to knock out 9 wins, and for that I'm happy. Watching the Texans play makes me glad for the Horns. I think they will be much better next year.

I don't think UT is even considering against Mack yet. He's been real good for them.

Don't complain. You could have bad offensive coaching for a really long time like Florida State and start to lose your recruiting advantage, like Florida State. It will change when the recruits simply quit going there.

Kudos to you, TTP. It is uncommon and refreshing to see such from a UT alum. (I assume you are a UT alum.)

When I was in undergrad, A&M had something like a 6-game win streak against UT. And not one of my UT friends would ever give my maroon and white a whit of credit. In fact, it was usually, "Why do you guys care about beating us so much? You know it's one-sided, don't you? We only care about beating OU." These were/are the same guys (and yes, gals) who would not shut up about whippin A&M's toockus for several years straight. I just smiled and took it.

Anyway, I'm happy for the Ags. My nephew is there now, a freshman. He went to the game, and I saw him Thanksgiving day. He was geeked about the upcoming game.

Oh...

And my boss' boss gets to wear an A&M Athletic Dept shirt to work on Monday. He is most definitely a UT alum. :)

As a big UT fans, I want to congratulate the Aggies on a big win, and thank them for whipping the horns. I am really getting tired of see the uninspired football the horns are playing lately. Saying that it was still a great win for the Aggies.

Also, since I am lazy and don't want to look it up, is Coach Fran going to coach the bowl game?

Coach Fran will not coach the bowl game. According to the Chronic, the Defensive Coordinator, Darnell (sp?) will coach the game. The article said all the other asst. coaches are still under contract unless they get hired by another school or A&M hires another coach and he releases them. Either scenario would probably only take place after the bowl games are played. Here is the a part of that article:

Assistants step up
Unless the current A&M coaches land jobs before the bowl season, they are contractually obligated to remain in place until a new coach comes aboard and appoints a staff.

In addition to bowl preparation, they will continue to keep the recruits abreast of what's going on.

I went from going to the game, to settling to having to watch it in a bar on 6th, to having to watch it at my step mom's house, to not even getting to see it at all.

Due to a family obligation I ended up spending the afternoon at an Outlet Mall resorting to using my mobile phone to monitor the score.

Congrats to A&M. I am not a "hater" of A&M and it's good for the rivalry for them to win a couple of these games now and then. I would have liked to have seen the game though despite the loss.


I was wondering where you were. I had two tickets for you.

I agree... they seemed uninspired, especially on defense. You guys definitely have us outmatched based on talent, but the Spirit of Aggieland is unmatched.Not sure if Fran will coach the bowl game, that is an excellent question.

I missed the game because I am currently working in Mississippi, But I spoke with my old roomate from there and he said it was the loudest he had heard it there since we beat #1 Oklahoma in 2002.

Two years in a row I have missed the TU game due to work. Its killing me.

The 1986 game against Baylor. That was the loudest I ever heard that place. I'm sure the data will support there being louder games since, especially since the addition to the North End of Kyle Field, but the memories of that game make my ears ring even now.

For all those parents who would dismiss Aggieland out of hand, please reconsider. There is something about going to college there. It's difficult to explain. I mean, look at me, I'm almost 40 years old and I am still talking about 1 football game 21 years ago.

Wow. That was 21 years ago. Man, I'm older than I feel. :)

The Zone made a huge diffrence in sound. Your Baylor game was like my Oklahoma game.

There was some major partying going on at Northgate that night.

I was at the game and I must say that it was simply amazing. We squeezed 88,000+ into Kyle tonight, it was a record. The place was loud as hell and even though it was 42 degrees, I wasn't cold at all.

Great game by the Ags offensively. McGee made a few dumb throws, but oh well. They managed to score through the passing game repeatedly, and Texas didn't have an answer for it. It is almost as if they were in denial about how powerful our passing attack was (I sure was).

Defensively I have complaints about the late game. The first half was flawless, except for one huge catch and run by Charles. The later playcalling almost allowed Texas to come back on us. In spite of ourselves, we managed to hold them off.

All in all it was a great game and I expect to see it on ESPN Classic at some point. I knew the Ags had what it took to show up the Horns again. There's a Spirit can ne'er be told....

I was at the game also and I must admit (as a UT fan) that the atmosphere was amazing. I was forced to sit in the freshman student section & I definitely have a few complaints about some of the classless fans I had the misfortune of meeting.

I did get to sit at the 50 yd line & witness a great game tho, and the A&M fans as a whole were great. You guys REALLY care about beating UT & I just wish our team could come into a game the way the Ags did that one.

Congrats on the victory. A&M had a perfect gameplan & executed it to near perfection.

The problem with the Longhorns, besides needing better defensive coaching at the LBs & DBs, is that the team has no character.

When VY was the guy, he gave that team a certain attitude & they just dont have it without him. I think Jamaal Charles can be that guy next year, but UT walked into Kyle Field thinking they had already won the game and they got outplayed, outcoached, & the Ags just straight beat them up.

Sorry you had a bad experience. It is the exception, not the rule. Freshmen will be freshmen. Sorry, nonetheless.

All the best,

Like RickyB said Fish will be Fish, None the less I am glad you got to experience a big game at Kyle Field, there really is nothing like it.

And as for VY, I am just glad he is gone.

I would also like to apologize for an classless fans, A&M usually has a reputation for being good hosts.

I am curious, when I went there (granted it was a million years ago), the student section was reserved for students. Students entered through a separate gate and had to show their student id. Has that changed?

No, it hasn't changed.... but you can purchase a guest pass for someone to sit in the student section.

Yea, I doubt many sips felt bad about that one, but that's the way it goes in this game.

Texas played tough late, when they finally realized that they were down by three scores with 12 minutes remaining. They have a lot of talent and they showed it. Like you said, if they had a coaching staff as talented as their players, they would likely be in the national spotlight again.

Us Ags, on the other hand, have a lot of work to do. We lack talent in key positions and we are getting a whole new coaching staff. I knew that the Ags could beat the Horns at home, but going back to Austin and getting three in a row next year will be very hard.

Keep hope alive Lucky, we have weapons on offense for Sherman and we have the 11th ranked recruiting class in the nation coming in.
