SENIOR DAY. LET’S GET EMOTIONAL. AND THEN LETS GET ANGRY.

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Texas A&M Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

YO LAST WEEK WE MOVED AWAY FROM PLAYING POWER BEFORE WE STARTED THIS THING AND WE GOT A WIN. I WILL CONTINUE THAT STREAK TODAY BY PROVIDING ANOTHER EXCERPT FROM MY GAMEDAY PLAYLIST

TWO GAMES LEFT IN THIS SEASON. TWO DAMN GAMES LEFT. REMEMBER HOW AMPED YOU WERE BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED? TIME TO KEEP THAT SAME ENERGY THIS WEEKEND BECAUSE LET ME TELL YOU, UAB ISN’T YOUR AVERAGE CUPCAKE.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS TEAM IS DIFFERENT. I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BONES. WE FINISHED LAST WEEK. COULD HAVE FOLDED, BUT WE DIDNT. TURN THE DAMN BALL OVER AND IT AIN’T NOTHING TO GO DOWN THE FIELD AND PUT THE DAMN GAME AWAY. THIS TEAM IS MATURING. THIS TEAM IS GETTING A FULL HEAD OF STEAM TO FINISH THIS DAMN SEASON STRONG.

THIS WEEK IS ALSO SENIOR DAY. AND YOULL HAVE TO PARDON ME IF IM A LITTLE EMOTIONAL. IM GOING TO SPEND SOME TIME SHOUTING OUT THE SENIORS ON THIS AGGIE TEAM:

DONOTRILL FOOTBALLSON-SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY YOU BURST ONTO THE DAMN SCENE WITH ALL THOSE HUGE HITS IN THAT ARIZONA STATE GAME, HALF OF WHICH WOULD PROBABLY NOW GET YOU TOSSED OUT FOR TARGETING. WE WILL MISS THE CRAP OUT OF YOU MAN.

KINGSLEY KEKE: IM NOT GONNA MAKE A DRAKE REFERENCE. BUT KEKE COMMITTED EARLY TO US, NEVER WAVERED AND JUST FLAT OUT KICKED ASS FOR FOUR YEARS. WE’RE THIN AT DE? OK FINE KEKE GOES ON A DAMN DIET LOSES LIKE 30 POUNDS STARTS WEARING SHMEDIUM SHIRTS AND STILL KICKS ASS.

CULLEN GILLASPIA: WALK ON. SCHOLARSHIP. STARTER. CAPTAIN. 12TH GD MAN. COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD OF THIS GUY FOR EVERYTHING HE’S DONE AND HOW MUCH HE PUTS ON FOR THIS UNIVERSITY EVERY SINGLE TIME HE PUTS THAT JERSEY ON.

KWAME ETWI: WOULD BE STARTING AT SO MANY DANG OTHER SCHOOLS. SHOULD BE STARTING AT SO MANY DANG OTHER SCHOOLS.

DESHAWN CAPERS-SMITH: ANOTHER UNHERALDED GUY FROM THAT CLASS OF 2015. WAS ONE OF OUR FIRST COMMITS. LEFTY LEFT IT ALL ON THE DAMN FIELD.

DAYLON MACK: IMMEDIATELY AFTER TYPING THIS KID’S NAME “IT’S SO HARD TO SAY GOODYE TO YESTERDAY” STARTED PLAYING IN MY HEAD. HOW DO WE SAY BYE TO THIS KID THAT WE’VE SEEN LITERALLY SINCE HE WAS A KID. HE ONCE RTD A JOKE I MADE ABOUT HOW MY SON WAS POOPING AND WE SCORED AGAINST LSU BACK IN 2013 SO I NEEDED TO KEEP MY SON ON THE TOILET SO WE COULD KEEP SCORING. AND NOW HERE HE IS BEING THE DADGUM DL WE ALL KNEW HE COULD BE. I WANT HIM TO SCORE A TOUCHDOWN THIS WEEKEND MORE THAN I’VE EVER WANTED ANYTHING IN MY LIFE.

RILEY GARNER: HOMETOWN KID. SPECIAL TEAMS BADASS.

OTARO ALAKA: BRUH. YOU DECOMMITTED FROM MACK BROWN. MACK FREAKING BROWN. YOU’RE ABOUT AS OLD AS I AM. SO TREMENDOUSLY PLEASED WITH THE SEASON THIS KID HAS PUT TOGETHER...WITH ALL THE INJURIES, ALL THE UPS AND DOWNS. DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN HE GOT THE START AGAINST AUBURN IN 2014? ALL AROUND BADASS.

AUSTIN FREY: DEEP SNAPPER EMERITUS. WROTE AN ENTIRE ALL CAPS ABOUT HIM FOR BYE WEEK ONE YEAR.

LANDIS DURHAM: LAND ICE DUR HAM. LEAD THE DADGUM LEAGUE IN SACKS LAST YEAR. BADASS ON THE EDGE THIS YEAR.

CONNOR LANFEAR: YO NOT ONLY IS THIS KID THE POSTER CHILD FOR EVERYTHING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU THINK OF A TEXAS A&M OFFENSIVE LINEMAN, HE ALSO FLIPPED FROM THE LONGHORNS TO THE AGGIES (LIKE ALAKA) THUS NOT ONLY GIVING US A DAMN GOOD OFFENSIVE LINEMAN WHO PLAYED HIS ASS OFF BUT ALSO A CROOTIN VICTORY WHICH WE ALL KNOW IS MORE IMPORTANT.

KEATON SUTHERLAND: ANOTHER FANTASTIC OFFENSIVE LINEMAN WHO PLAYED FOR WHAT FELT LIKE 10 DIFFERENT OL COACHES OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS.

LANDRY ESTES: ILL BE HONEST I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT YOU BUT I APPRECIATE YOU

TREVOR WOOD: WE GAVE ARIZONA SUMLIN AND THEY GAVE US A BLUDGEON TO USE IN THE RUNNING GAME. ID SAY WE GOT THE BETTER END OF THAT DEAL.

JUST IN CASE:

ERIK MCCOY: THREE YEAR STARTER. CALM. COOL. COLLECTED. PLAYED OUT OF GD POSITION EVERY SINGLE YEAR BUT DID SO TO A HIGH LEVEL OF EXCELLENCE. JUST A WONDERFUL KID FROM A WONDERFUL FAMILY WHO’S GONNA GO ON TO HAVE A 20 YEAR CAREER IN THE NFL AT GUARD AND YOU KNOW WHAT: HE DESERVES IT. GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE AND THIS GUY IS ONE OF THE BEST. PROUD OF YOU ERIK.

TRILLVEON TRILLIAMS: ON ONE HAND I HOPE YOU DONT LEAVE BUT ON THE OTHER GO GET THAT CHECK MAN. YOU WENT FROM BREAKING ANKLES AGAINST AUBURN TO BREAKING JAWS BY RUNNING TOUGH BETWEEN THE TACKLES. IF THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE WHO DEMONSTRATE THE CULTURE CHANGE THAT JIMBO IS TRYING TO IMPART THEY ARE DAYLON MACK AND FREAKING TRAYVEON WILLIAMS. I HOPE THAT AS TIME GOES ON WE APPRECIATE EVERYTHING HE DID FOR THIS PROGRAM

OK IM ALL EMOTIONAL NOW

AND NOW THAT SADNESS TURNS TO ANGER

THIS IS OUR FIELD. I DONT CARE HOW GOOD UAB MIGHT BE AND I DONT CARE THAT THEY ARE RANKED HIGHER THAN US. THEY DONT COME TO OUR FIELD AND SHIT ON SENIOR DAY. IT’S JUST NOT GONNA HAPPEN. I WANT TO BEAT THE PISS OUT OF THIS TEAM MORE THAN ANY TEAM WEVE PLAYED THIS YEAR. I WANT OUR SENIORS TO HAVE THEIR SENIOR DAY BE ONE THAT THEY REMEMBER FOREVER BECAUSE OF THE EFFORT WE’RE ABOUT TO PUT ON THE FIELD.

TWO GAME LEFT IN THIS YEAR. TWO OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN THIS SEASON INTO SOMETHING THAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT AS BEING THE FOUNDATION FOR GREATNESS.

IT ALL STARTS THIS WEEKEND.

AND IT ALL STARTS WITH KYLE FIELD BEING AS LOUD AS IT POSSIBLY CAN.

DO YOUR JOB AGS.

THESE PLAYERS HAVE BLED FOR A&M. THEY HAVE DONE EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO MAKE THIS FOOTBALL PROGRAM AS GOOD AS IT CAN BE

AND THEY DESERVE TO BE CELEBRATED.

LET’S GET THIS JOB DONE. LET’S OWN KYLE FIELD THIS WEEKEND. LET’S MAKE IT THE MOST INTIMIDATING PLACE IN THE COUNTRY TO PLAY FOR TWO FINAL GAMES.

ALL STARTS THIS WEEKEND.
