BIG TIME PLAYERS MAKE BIG TIME PLAYS IN BIG TIME GAMES

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Texas A&M John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

LISTEN UP AND LISTEN GOOD. THIS FIRST PART IS GONNA BE IN ALL GD CAPS BECAUSE IM KIND OF DRUNK AND REALLY FIRED UP. THIS WAS A BIG WIN AND DONT LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE. WE MESSED UP. WE PLAYED SLOPPY. AND WE STILL MANAGED TO BEAT A TEAM RANKED IN THE TOP 15. BEFORE ANYONE NAYSAYS THIS IS THE SAME GD KENTUCKY TEAM THAT BEAT FLORIDA...THAT SAME GD FLORIDA TEAM THAT BEAT LSU TODAY. DONT GET IT TWISTED. KENTUCKY IS A GOOD TEAM. LET’S BREAK THIS DOWN AND I’LL STOP YELLING

Offense

Kellen had a Kellen sort of day. 18/29 for 226 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT. He’s a 60% thrower...that’s just who he is. I want to be pretty upset for that late fumble, but he’s also the same guy that eluded the rush against our terrible OL play (more in a bit) and managed to make hay the best he could. He is who he is and he’s the winning QB tonight.

The OL had a bad night. Moore had a rough time with the Kentucky pass rush and got abused a bit. We had some issues with snaps, had some issue with protection, and have a lot of stuff to clean up. Not the OLs best game.

Trayveon. What can you say about the guy? Finished the night with 24 carries for 138 yards. Kentucky, prior to tonight, was in the top 25 in rush defense, and we did pretty well against them. Trayveon is the heart and soul of this offense, and when it counted he got the job done. Hats off to Trillveon.

WRs did not play all that well tonight. Take away Jace (who had a great game) and Williams and the next best receiver was Davis with 3 catches for 24 yards. I dont know how many drops we had but we had a lot.

Defense

Bro. Kentucky was the leading rushing team in the SEC. Benny Snell was the LEADING RUSHER IN THE SEC.

WE HELD THEM TO 30 CARRIES FOR 70 YARDS. SNELL HAD 13 CARRIES FOR 60 YARDS. THIS RUSH DEFENSE IS LEGIT AND KENTUCKY GOT EATEN ALIVE.

ALSO

I want to pick out a specific defensive lineman to praise but everyone had a great game. Keke with big plays. Madubuike getting pressure. Daylon FREAKING MACK getting pressure every damn play. I love this defensive line.

And let’s talk about Tyrel Dodson having his cant remember the name of that celtics player who got hurt and came back to put the team on his back moment and then give us a BOOOM MFER of a play against Snell.

Last but certainly not least...Donovan Wilson. Big play after big play. Stop after stop. I love the heart of this defense. We’ve got upperclassmen leaders who know what they’re doing and its fun to watch.


When we turned the ball over late, I told myself that we just dont know how to win. That we arent ready to win yet. That’s not the case. We’re not good at winning, but we did what we needed to do tonight. We dont know how to put away a game when the game is on the line but maybe we’re taking one step closer to knowing how to win.

Dont get it twisted. Tonight Jimbo’s team grew up against a good opponent. Good night for your Aggies to get a win over a top 15 team at Kyle Field.
