THEY'RE JUST YOUNG SPECIAL SNOWFLAKES THAT VIEW HANDCUFFS AS AN EXPRESSIVE ART FORM. Uh, we had some more football players accept metal, cuffed friendship bracelets from the men in blue. The obvious questions - what the hell? Shouldn't the police dial it down a notch because SEC?
Nothing turns some (emphasis on 'some') staunch, conservative Aggies into bleeding libs quicker than Aggie Football.— Brent Zwerneman (@BrentZwerneman) April 16, 2014
Z is spot on here. We have fans that could see Australian Party Kid skateboarding down University Drive with his Spicoli hair flopping in the breeze and the uptight Ag gestapo would cry for arrest and possible execution. Ag football player gets into some assault/drugs/weapons snafus? "Bah, they're just kids. Make him sit a series against Lamar. Whoop."
GO GET 'EM, MATT J. Senior quarterback Matt Joeckel is transferring to TCU for his last year of eligibility. He's cleared to play in 2014 and will get a good shot to finally show his stuff close to his home in Arlington. I reckon the writing was on the wall that Kenny and Kyle are the lead ponies to take over for Manziel. Depth is now a real concern at quarterback as Joeckel was the anchor and safety valve in the depth chart. Regardless, give '
me 'em hell, Matt. You're a damn fine Aggie with a bright future.
CROOT BUZZ. CBS Sports takes a half stab at some A&M recruiting coverage. /guzzles schnapps until August 28.
WE RAN 10 LESS PLAYS PER GAME IN 2013? Saturday Down South details which SEC teams run the most plays per game. The Ags saw a substantial drop in quantity from 2012 to 2013.
WAY TO GO, BATS. The beisbol team obliterated Abilene Christian 20-2 last night. They wore those kick ass, Astros-inspired retro unis. Up next is a visit over the Easter weekend from Kentucky.
WE ALL MAKE POOR STYLE CHOICES IN OUR DEVELOPMENT. Teams are getting some new uniforms and some are assault and battery on the eyeballs. Ags certainly aren't immune to some poor choices in this regard (READ: those patterned collar things on football jerseys circa 2000ish). My personal worst choices over the years:
- Hemp necklace
- Cargo shorts
- Doc Martens
- Black dress shirt
