Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Texas A&M Baseball had a rough start to conference play this year. Swept by Kentucky at home. Demolished in Nashville by Vanderbilt by a football score. It was looking like they’d drop another series on the road to #9 LSU yesterday until this happened.

All four of the Aggies’ runs came with two outs in the ninth.

WHAT. Baseball is insane. I’m no chartographer, but if the team keeps improving at this rate they’ll be winning about 12 SEC games per week at season’s end. Need some graphs.

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odor and in hue,
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew.

EXCLUSIVE SPRING FRIDAY NIGHT SCRIMMAGE REPORT:

Senior playmaking safety excels by getting multiple interceptions and showcasing experience and skill. In case watching him be one of the best defensive players on the team for three years against some of the best competition in the country wasn’t enough to convince you, just read this account of a controlled scrimmage in which he went up against unproven backups.

“Defensive ends generate pressure.” Oh, good. Was worried they were just going to sort of sit around observing once the ball was snapped this year, hovering about in space like malfunctioning electrons, lost and directionless now that Hall & Garrett are gone.

“Defensive tackles shine.” This is the result of a new experiment Terry Price is attempting this year. He will baste each defensive tackle with his patented marinade approximately every 2-3 hours between March and August. By the time the season rolls around they’ll have developed (with a little help from the Brazos Valley sun) a tough, smoky, yet flexible bark that will render them nearly impossible to block, in addition to a delicious aroma that will distract hungry offensive linemen.

In summary, everything’s fine. The injured players are resting, the younger guys are getting reps, the position(s) of need are looking promising, the QB battle is a positive vehicle for constructive competition and certainly not a cause for worry no sir, the QB position at A&M is not an issue we can assure you, everything’s gonna be great, the lack of proven experience is no cause for concern not at all [trails off into incoherent muffled platitudes, stares out window for 5 months....]
