That was a special kind of sports last night, you guys. That was a perfect recipe of:
- Overflowing anticipation leading to Game 1 of the season
- "OMG Johnny is gone is Texas A&M football gone too?!" - National blowhards
- Calculating (and often accurate) Vegas with the home team as a double digit favorite
- Tons of unknowns
- A quarterback dude tasked with filling MASSIVE shoes. On the road. His first start ever.
It’s conceding that none of us know anything really. There are no experts. Anything might happen tonight and having it any other way would be tedious.
Only one opposing offense earned more than 23 first downs vs. South Carolina in 2013 (Georgia, with 25). A&M had 23 in the first half.— Matt Hinton (@MattRHinton) August 28, 2014
That is methodically, cryptically destroying a defense.
We have all sorts of useful and dumb content coming your way before the holiday weekend. Finally, I said I'd eat a pair of old Sperry Topsiders if the A&M D held Carolina to under 250 yards rushing. I WAS NOT CLOSE THIS IS GOOD WHOOP. Ideally, I'd like to live through the football season, so if any of y'all chefs know how to prepare shoes for consumption, I'm all ears. I'm thinking smoked low and slow with some crow confit.
Have a great Labor Day weekend, Ags. We love y'all. Gig 'em.
P.S. - could the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band play "Sandstorm" when Cock visits next year?
