GAMBOWLING The Music City Bowl opened with A&M at -2.5, but the line has now moved to -1 with an O/U at 50.5. This is Vegas' way of telling you to prepare to watch these two teams take turns bludgeoning each other with a black jack until one is too concussed to continue, at which point the champion will be given a free pork barbecue meal and tickets to Graceland and the loser will be packaged in shipping crates and sent home for "retooling".
SHOULDA CAUTERIZED THAT FOOTBALL WOUND NOW THE INFECTION IS SPREADING The A&M basketball team will be finishing the season without the services of freshman standout Elijah Thomas who has announced his decision to transfer. I don't follow basketball too well but I assume this is the offensive coordinator's fault and he will be terminated forthwith. This unfortunate news comes on the heels of the Aggies scraping their way back into the Top 25 following their dismantling of Kansas State on Saturday.
OH TANNY BOY The Dolphins lost last night, officially eliminating former A&M QB Ryan Tannehill from a playoff run this year but giving Miami a shot at drafting some help for him. Feel bad for Tannehill for missing out on the playoffs, feel worse for him that Jon Gruden does not know his name.
ACTUALLY NOT GONNA BE SNARKY ABOUT THIS Forbes put out the most Buzzfeedey, clickbaitey thing I can imagine from a financial magazine with this slide show gallery of the top 10 college towns in America, and would you look at who landed at #2 behind only Ann Arbor. Yes, there are much cooler places to live than Aggieland, but when you are a cash-strapped (read: broke-ass) student looking to go out for dinner and beers and still be able to pay the rent that month, you can do a lot worse than good ol' College Station. Plus, if you choose to live in Bryan you can save another $200 a month and drastically increase your chances of seeing a dead body while you walk your dog.
