I'm not naive. I might be an optimist, but I'm not naive. I fully know that the deck is stacked against us this weekend. We're all aware of how good Auburn is and how much we've struggled over the past few games. But in the immortal words of our starting QB:
Don't count me out yet— Kyle Allen (@KyleAllen_10) August 17, 2014
Let's talk about something. Does hoping and thinking that you have the chance to win make a loss any more difficult to take? I don't think so. Then why the hell not get behind this young, reinvented squad? Why the hell not put your hopes in the arm of a freshman phenom? WHY NOT US AND WHY NOT THIS GAME?
This is a plea. Get on board. GET THE F*CK ON BOARD FOR THE LAST THREE GAMES OF THIS AGGIE FOOTBALL SEASON. GO ALL IN. LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND AND STOP TRYING TO GUARD YOUR EMOTIONS OR WHATEVER OTHER BULLSH*T IS GOING ON. GET ON BOARD AND GET BEHIND THIS SQUAD.
The theme song for the day is pretty simple and perfectly appropriate. Click Play. GET ON BOARD. GET ON BOARD RIGHT NOW. CRAZY IS MORE FUN WHEN YOU ARE JOINED BY YOUR FRIENDS. NOTHING WE'VE DONE UP TO THIS POINT MATTERS. THE GOAL IS 1-0 THIS WEEKEND. 1 AND F*CKING 0.
On the subject of crazy...crazy things happen for A&M football in the second week in November. Specifically, crazy things have the tendency to happen for A&M teams coached by Kevin Sumlin in the second week in November. Crazy upset-y things. Let's review:
November 10, 2012
November 9, 2002--with bonus sandstorm action
Let's talk about what those two games had in common. Freshman QBs. Double digit spreads. Beating top 3 teams in the country.
Both coached by Kevin Sumlin.
SWITCH SONGS. SAME THEME. DIFFERENT TONE.
GET YOUR DAMN MIND RIGHT. STOP B*TCHING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST AND FOCUS ON THE LAST THREE DAMN GAMES OF THE YEAR. FORGET REALISM. WHAT THE HELL HAS BEING REALISTIC EVER DONE FOR YOU IN YOUR LIFE? BE AN OPTIMIST. DRINK THE DAMN KOOL-AID AND GET THE HELL ON BOARD WITH THIS TEAM AND THIS SQUAD. I KNOW IT'S GOING TO BE HARD, BUT SH*T WHEN THE HELL HAS BEING AN A&M FAN BEEN EASY? RESILIENCY IS OUR F*CKING MIDDLE NAME.
GO ALL IN. THERE'S NO CORRELATION HERE WHATSOEVER BUT IF YOU'RE ALL IN THE TEAM WILL BE TOO. I HAVE NO FACTS TO BACK THAT UP BUT WHATEVER. GO ALL IN 100% ROOTING FOR YOUR DAMN SQUAD TO COME OUT ON TOP SATURDAY.
ALL FROSH NUMBERS
42 & 14--FROM HERE ON OUT THIS TANDEM WILL BE KNOWN SOLELY AS BOOM WALK ALAKA. SO IT IS WRITTEN SO IT IS DONE.
23--TURN DOWN FOR WATTS. FORGET VERSACE. I'M REMIXING IT FOR ARMANI. ARMANI ARMANI GON' HIT YOU SO HARD THAT YOU BEG FOR YOUR MOMMY.
15--DO WHAT YOU DO MYLES. DO WHAT YOU F*CKING DO. TRUE FROSH RUNNING THE DAMN GAME.
13-HE'S A REDSHIRT, BUT DAMN I LOVE THE MOVE OF REGGIE CHEVIS TO DE. DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE.
10--THIS IS YOUR GAME YOUNG MAN. THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE. YOUR LEGEND STARTS THIS WEEKEND. LET IT F*CKING RIP. WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK. LET'S GOOOO.
2--HARDEST WORKING MAN IN FOOTBALL BUSINESS. LEAD THIS TEAM TO VICTORY. BE THE DAMN STANDARD.
MOLIERE ONCE SAID "THE GREATER THE OBSTACLE THE MORE GLORY IN OVERCOMING IT". THIS OBSTACLE IS GREAT, BUT SO IS THE GLORY. I WANT GLORY ALL OVER MY BODY SATURDAY NIGHT.
IT'S OUR DAMN TIME.
OUR DAMN GAME.
