We've had a great few months and have a lot to be thankful for as a University and football team: a potential ten-win season and Heisman candidate, for example. But let's not forget the rest of everything we have to be thankful for today: families, loved ones, and all that other great stuff. The ones who tolerate us during football season. So to any Ags out there traveling this weekend, be safe. And to all those who are hosting the big family dinner (like me): good luck. It's worth it, and it's only once a year.
And to all those who might be missing a certain other Thanksgiving tradition, like Alex Okafor:
“Honestly, I feel sorry for A&M,” UT defensive end Alex Okafor said. “We still have a big-time (Thanksgiving) game, and they’re missing out.”
Thanks, Alex. But I think Sean Porter's got it covered:
