    I am glad we are winning, but I hope this soft schedule isn't going to keep us from being prepared to go up against Texas Tech in 2 weeks!

    Anybody know if we will be on TV before Thanksgiving?

    Too bad the Aggies are playing Army at the Alamodome. When Army was in CUSA, that game was always a highlight when they came to play UH in Houston and the Golden Knights Skydiving team would parachute onto the field before the game.

    They also would have tanks, Apache helicopters, humvees etc. on display. We used to include MRE's on our tailgaiting menus in honor of Army.

    Should be a good game.

    I can't wait for this game. Me, two of my friends and my dad are making the trip to the game and we'll be sitting down low. If ya'll watch the game and see a couple of crazy kids with hair dyed and faces painted, you might be seeing me lol

    Apparently somebody forgot to tell Army they were part of A&M's "soft schedule". :rofl:

    Ross just cost his team the game. On 3rd and goal with :09 you call a running play? How 'bout you call another pass play and if it's no good, you still have a 4th play to run/pass?

    Francione sucked and if it wasn't for that STUPID call by Army at the end of the game for a running play, I think A&M would have lost. Why would you call that play? They had 9 seconds and had been very successful with their slant pass plays -they had time to fire off 2 of them and they likely would have won it or gotten picked and lost.

    And why didn't Fran punt when we were on our own 30 yard line? If he really had confidence in his team, he would have punted and expected his defense to step up. Oh, right....... they hadn't stepped up all night.

    Is it too late to get R.C. back?

    We had a good game. My biggest concern is our rush defense, of course. Our offense pleased me and our pass rush and pass defense was decent. McGee is going to be a stud.

    That last drive for Army was so crazy. A lot of stupid mistakes went in our favor (as well as theirs.... did you see that pass interference? Was not a good move), but we still defeated them when they tried to pass, or shut it down.

    All in all a good game to watch, better than TU vs. Rice. What a snoozer.

    McGee was great. Lane looked like he could be really good with a little coaching. We squeaked this one out.

    Can you believe TCU beat TT and kept them out of the endzone !!!!

    That last pass interference was dumb - the guy never even turned around.

    Too bad it wasn't at Kyle Field. That would be really cool for them to parachute in - the crowd would really eat that up.

    I read this and thought it funny that you have a quote in your sig making fun of UT fans.

    But you're right...it was a good game to watch. The celebration by the A&M team was priceless. :D

    You never learn, do you? I read these threads to keep track with McGee, who I was impressed with last year, and see you knock UT. Get over it, we're not Tulane, Toledo, or any other school pretending to be UT. Can't say I disagree though, 45-0(:yikes: ) was enough to get me to turn the channel.

    I'm an Aggie, I never learn. :yahoo:

    P.S. - I agree, seeing TU playing is enough to make me change the channel. :redtowel:

    Maybe next year the ags can schedule some high school teams for their non-conference games.
