And were off......

Tonight features the mighty Texas A&M Aggies going to Columbia to take on The 'Ol Ball Coach and the Carolina Gamecocks. 

Hopefully our fellow member and Aggie alum, Rifledude will chime in and give us his thoughts on tonight's match up.    

As I stated earlier, SC is ranked a bit high at number 9, IMO. Tonight will be a good test for both teams, after losing so much talent to last years NFL draft.

I'm kind of looking toward the UCF / Penn State game played in Ireland. It will be on at 8 am Sat. Waiting to see if UCF's great year last year was real or a fluke. They did loose a good QB in Bortles though.

Mark, I think this will be a tough game for us. Despite losing some legendary talent in JF, Mike Evans, and Jake Matthews, I actually think we will still have a great offense. Both our quarterbacks, Kenny Hill and Kyle Allen were 5 star recruits. Hill has college experience already, playing mop up role for JF last year. We are very deep with talent at WR and RB. Look out for "Speedy" Noil and Ricky Seals-Jones.

I don't know what to think about our D this year. We got some promising recruits, but the D is still young and inexperienced overall. Since they can't get much worse than last yr, I predict an improved unit this yr. D Everitt will still be an impact player, and his leadership will be needed. Look out for new DE recruit Myles Garrett, a blue chip player among blue chip recruits! He is a BEAST!

I love it! I don't believe we've ever been this STACKED at WR! Amazing collection of talent! The OL is still dominant, with yet ANOTHER Matthews family member anchoring the line!

And, keep an eye on Kenny Hill! He's no JF, but he played like a poised veteran, with 44 completions and racked up 511 of their 680 total offensive yards! Overall, despite the loss of JF, Jake Matthews, and Mike Evans to the NFL, I can't say I've ever seen an A&M offense this dominant in an opening game...ever!

Defense is greatly improved from last year, which isn't surprising, since they only had one direction to go from last year. Our secondary is still our weakness, but they're still much improved! Keep an eye on freshman DE Myles Garrett. He's a STUD!

Congrats Ted, A&M put a major spank on Carolina. I'll bet the old HBC was none too happy afterwards. It was a pleasure to see some real football ... after what my Gators did last year.

Hahaha.....I was just talking to someone the other day about Spurrier being kinder and gentler, since his Florida, visor and clip board throwing rampages.   

Great win, Ted. Can't wait for tomorrow!!! 



Go Gators!!!

Wow, we got one play in! Showers for Showers! UGA looked good as did Auburn. Wasn't impressed with Lame Kitten's debut.

I thought the same, Ric. Bama looked average on both sides of the ball. Wow...what a performance by Mr. Gurley!!

Ya, know. I have an admitted soft spot for Miami. I guess it stems from those old days when the Canes were dominating. 
I do hope Miami can pull off an upset when FSU comes to town this year. I'd LOVE to see Free Shoes U little apple cart get toppled in Coral Gables.

Well, I do agree it would be nice for the Criminoles to get taken down a peg or two. I just really dislike the "U".

BIG game tomorrow for Stanford, huh Mike? The Cardinals are at home against Southern Cal. 

Speaking of annoying traditions, (Criminoles tomahawk chop Loco ), I hate watching a USC game and listening to that darn music the band plays after EVERY play. Sheesh... 

I'm taking the Cards by 10 at home.

My daughter and I attended the first home game of the season at my alma mater last Saturday, 9-6. My Aggies played Lamar, a Div I FCS team, so predictably, it was a blowout (73-3). Nevertheless, it was the first game in the newly renovated Kyle Field, and tickets weren't anywhere near as expensive as they can be against SEC West opponents. We had a great time despite the lack of on-field suspense.

Before the game, we ran into this guy and his dachshund, which he was obviously VERY proud of! Notice the "GET A L-O-O-O-NG LITTLE DOGGIE" on his hat. His dog didn't seem to mind his costume at all. I think it's fair to say he's a hardcore fan! I appreciated his sense of humor!





My fellow Aggies turned out in force and made some noise!



The sky started looking threatening as team introductions began...



Sure enough, a storm was brewing, and the game was delayed for nearly 2 hours due to lightning. So, they showed excerpts from other college football games on the jumbo-tron until the lightning storm subsided. Seriously, I didn't enhance the sky in post-processing; it really was that deep blue! I tried to get a shot of some of the lightning strikes that got pretty close to the stadium, but wasn't fast enough on the draw.
