NOVEMBER IS DONE THANK YE SWEET MERCIFUL LORD. The nightmare month has finally come to a close. No more playing and losing to piddly Mississippi teams. No more getting our skulls kicked in by wily drunk Cajuns (hopefully). Now we glacially slide into acceptance. Yet another year goes by without a trip to Atlanta. Instead, the prospect of playing in dangerous/forgettable southern cities for bowl season starts to become reality. CAN’T WAIT. I encourage you to relish in these football games where you have little rooting interest. This sport is awfully fun when you don’t feel like your insides are dying. If you need a little edge, gamble. This will all be done soon and we’ll be left feigning interest in regular season college basketball.
2017 WILL BE A PEACH. Our buddy Sam Khan takes a look at the big picture and examines what Sumlin and the A&M program need to do in 2017. SPOILER: it’s all super easy - figure out how to stop the run, find a quarterback, and recruit well. Easy peasy.
MIAMI VICE. Texas A&M and Miami knocked out some of the formalities in securing their home-and-home series in 2022 and 2023. Kudos to the brass at both schools for making it a home-and-home even if Miami plays in an NFL stadium named after a shitty beer marketed to deadbeat divorcees. This will be a fun series provided the city of Miami is submerged under water by then. If you want to learn about how delightful Miami fans are, asking anyone who made the trip the last time we were in South Florida. Evidently people who bet on Pop Warner football games aren’t the most welcoming hosts.
Have a nice Thursday, you guys.
