Guess what this week is, well it's ALABAMA WEEK. Katie bar the door because the hype machine will be turnt to eleven and the taeks will be molten. This is the biggest A&M-Bama matchup since the Game Of The Century Of The Year a couple of Septembers ago. Mondays be damned, we're hitting the ground running this week.
WELL ACTUALLY. Dontcha hate it when that surly critical fan you know starts badmouthing your favorite Aggie football uniform combination saying "oh the team always loses when they wear those"? Well, in case that's happened to you there is now EMPIRICAL PROVEN EVIDENCE should you choose to manipulate it. rcb05 has gathered years of data and compiled it along with handy graphics to show Texas A&M Football's performance record in each uniform combination since the move to the SEC. ALL USA UNIFORMS ALL THE TIME PLEASE.
POLL TIDE. Just a few short weeks ago, there were ten SEC teams filling out the top 25. That number has been sliced neatly in half, and I think we can go ahead and blame Auburn for all of it. Three of the five still-ranked SEC teams are in the top ten. Polls are becoming slightly less dumb at this point in the season, but as TSK points out we're still a short while away from the playoff rankings.
"ALABAMA SMALL FAVORITES"? SOUNDS LIKE A NICK SABAN HEADLINE TO ME HARF HARF. The line in Vegas or whatever they call it has opened and the Aggies are a 3-point underdogs against the Tide. We like this because we assume it means Alabama will not take us seriously. Unless we don't like it because we think the media is not taking us seriously. Both arguments are illogical and so is college football and that's why we love it.
WHEN YOU'RE C-MIKE AND YOU GET PULLED OVER IT'S USUALLY JUST SO THE POLICE CAN SAY "HEY CAN I GET A PIC WITH U?"
