    Does anyone know if this game will be at Reliant every year,especially this year or is it moved around from town to town?

    True Story.


    I just wish we had a decent backfield. We have a awesome rest of the team, but our DB's suck worse than the Texans.

    The Aggie secondary is probably our weakest point. Our offense is only limited by McGee's abilities and he has shown to be pretty much above average so far this season. Our running game is dynamic and won't be stopped once we get it rolling.

    Your pass D does suck, but it's not as bad as KU's. McGee is horrible IMO. I'm so sorry for ATM fans every time I see him play. The kid just doesn't have the talent to play at this level.

    We have an awesome offense and a good front seven. We lost our two best LB's last year, but we'll be ok with that part of the team.

    ...KU basketball is about to start. Care to make bets on the basketball meetings between our teams? Possibly and avatar bet?

    Texas will win, don't even try to give youselves hope, theres no chance for any other big 12 team, and whatever team is playin texas is lucky that its not in houston, the only reason texas did bad against the huskers is because it was cold outside, and it might be a deciding factor at arrowhead, but texas still wins

    go horns :redtowel:

    Or so said the Jags when they rolled into Reliant Stadium last weekend. "Easy win" right? Hahahaha. So far Texas hasn't played a team with a RB like the J-Train.... big enough to handle those oversized defenders. By handle I mean obliterate....

    Texas has some Big dudes up front, much bigger than lane. Okam/Crowder will most likely handle him. Mixing it up with that lil dude will be the key. I have not been impressed with a&m's qb either. I haven't watched enough of mccoy to have an opinion. Not a fan of either school, just some opinions.

    If it's Nebraska that wins the Big 12 North, then they actually have a shot. They won't be favored if it's against Texas but if it's OU or A&M I think they will be. I think Texas will win the not-so Big 12 this season, but I'm rooting against them.

    I thought I heard it was suppose to be Texas vs Missouri somewhere? With Texas being the big favorite... Oh well...

    Go Texas teams...

    Shame it's not at Reliant every year, I would love to go again... :chicken:

    It rotates around.

    San Antonio
    Dallas
    Houston
    Kansas City
    Denver

    All have hosted Big12 championship games. I may be leaving some out as well.

    From the looks of things, it'll be a Texas/Nebraska re-match.

    Texas is certainly in the driver's seat in the South. Their path is simple, win 'em all or you can lose one...just not to A&M.

    A&M has a bit of an uphill climb but it's not out of the question. They just have to win the rest of their games and they're in.

    I don't see any team from the North challenging Nebraska. Not that they're great, just the rest of the North is really bad.

    McGee does have the talent to play at this level.

    Only it is at HB or WR not QB. He actually has pretty decent speed for a white kid.

    McGee has the talent to play at this level. He's just playing in the wrong offense.

    Reggie McNeal was showing signs of becoming really good. Then Fran got his hands on him. Now he's doing the same with McGee before his college career can really get off the ground.

    Have to agree with Huge here. I saw McGee maybe 10 times in high school and he is a drop back passer not an option QB. Your coaches offense doesn't use his abilities. There is a reason why Jordan Shipley is Texas High School's all time leader in receptions and Td's. It is a shame Shipley and McGee didn't go to the same school and could have kept their chemistry together. If A&M ever gets some recievers and runs the right type of offense, McGee will be successful.

    Try Chad Schroeder. If we had Troy Smith on this team then you would be hearing about Chad going in the late 2nd round at least. As of right now I think he will fall to maybe the 5th-6th round but he will do good in the NFL if that is the path he chooses. Great hands, excellent route runner. Our #1 Receiver.

    I agree that Fran doesn't utilize McGee's abilities. Hell... everyone at A&M knows that. Most football talk on the weekdays revolves around "fire Fran". I have seen some poor choices in playcalling by the coaching staff but I don't have any particular beef with him. I wish we could have a more vertical passing game though....
