THIS MAN IS NOT TOEING THE COMPANY LINE A&M left a nice paycheck on the dresser for Ball State, but some people have the gall to suggest that mid-major teams not line up for a cupcakening in the name of making money for the program.
"We are sacrificing our kids and letting them get their butts kicked in order to make more money for ourselves," he said. "We need to look at ourselves in the mirror and we have to realize who we are and that it's okay competing against schools we can compete against."
It's almost as if he feels that they should schedule competition that is actually competetive and that players should see some sort of compensation for working their asses off every day and placing themselves in harms way. What a commie.
THE NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME PIGS Kickoff times for Week 4 have been announced, and the Ags and Pigs will be getting things started in Jerryworld at 6 PM.

"PROJECTIONS" IS JUST AN ANAGRAM FOR "COINS PER JOT" The pro journos know that nothing keeps the clicks a-comin' and the cash a-rollin' like meaningless playoff projections after 2 weeks. Well they're right, because this one has the Aggies on the fringe and that's good enough to keep me at a low simmer through Thursday.
