You have TAMU taking on the Sooners
not for 2 more weeks. we have colorado at home and then we're at baylor THEN the sooners at home. although i don't get this impression from the mcneal lead aggs this year, they better not sleep on colorado. the last two times the buffaloes came to kyle field they beat a&m, and it would be a shame to be stipped of our new ranking so soon. can't say enough about mcneal though, alot of ignorant fans were chomping at the bit after the big loss to utah and claimed that "mcneal isn't the QB for a&m." but anyone who really watched the game saw mcneal trying to stay poised in the pocket despite heavy utah pressure. you could tell he was trying to be a QB and not rely on his legs until he was in a blitzing LB's crosshairs. he also had a few BIG drops from terence murphy and the "crew's" young secondary were on their heals all night because they weren't communicating. mcneal's progress, along with the team as whole, is really off the charts. we're two games away from seeing if fran has helped aggie football turn the corner to contend for the big 12 title.

i still hold strong that the defense is far from being the wrecking crew
the best thing is they know they're not the wrecking crew. although the fans will cheer/chant "wrecking crew" after a big play or series, it's more of a tribute to the "crew's" of old and the progress this young group has made. as long as they keep up the knack of turning the ball back over to the offense, they will be able to survive almost any mistake they make.
