CRIMSON TIDE IS A DUMB MASCOT

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

THIS IS THE MOMENT WE WERE MADE FOR.

THIS IS THE MOMENT YOU WERE MADE FOR AS A FAN.

THE ONLY THING THAT'S BEEN RUNNING THROUGH MY HEAD ABOUT THIS GAME IS A SIMPLE QUESTION "HOW GOOD CAN WE BE?"

THIS GAME IS NOT ABOUT HOW GOOD WE ARE. WE HAVE YET TO PLAY OUR BEST FOOTBALL. THIS GAME IS ABOUT HOW GOOD WE CAN BE. CAN WE BE PERFECT. CAN WE BE BETTER THAN GOOD. CAN WE BE GREAT.

THE ANSWER IS A RESOUNDING FCK YES.

SAME THING WITH US AS FANS. THIS GAME IS NOT ABOUT HOW LOUD THE 12TH MAN IS...THIS GAME IS HOW ABOUT HOW LOUD WE AS A COLLECTIVE FANBASE CAN BE. HOW LOUD CAN YOU BE. NORTHSIDE SOUTHSIDE WESTSIDE AND EASTSIDE. HOW DISRUPTIVE CAN YOU BE. HOW MUCH ENERGY CAN YOU TRANSFER FROM YOUR COLLECTIVE SECTION TO THE PLAYERS ON THE FIELD.

HOW

GOOD

CAN

YOU

BE

ASK YOURSELF THAT. TAKE THAT ANSWER AND DOUBLE IT. BECAUSE THAT'S HOW GOOD WE NEED TO BE. THIS GAME DESERVES ALL OF US. EVERY LITTLE BIT OF OUR ATTENTION ENERGY PASSION AND EMOTION. THIS RIGHT HERE IS THE REASON WE ARE COLLEGE FOOTBALL FANS. THIS RIGHT HERE IS WHY WE PUT HEART SOUL EMOTION TEARS AND JOY INTO WATCHING THIS DAMN GAME EVERY SATURDAY. THIS GAME RIGHT HERE IS THE REASON WE EXIST AS FANS.

I DONT CARE ABOUT LAST YEAR. I WON'T USE IT AS MOTIVATION. WE'RE NOT RUNNING AWAY FROM THAT GAME. IT HAPPENED. BUT THIS TEAM IS WIRED DIFFERENTLY. LAST YEAR WAS JEKYLL. THIS YEAR IS MR. HYDE. WE'RE MONSTERS THIS YEAR. OUR DNA IS DIFFERENT. WE ARE A DIFFERENT TEAM WITH A DIFFERENT MENTALITY.

THIS IS OUR HOUSE. THIS IS OUR FIELD. THIS IS OUR GAME. THIS WILL BE OUR CELEBRATION. THIS WILL BE OUR MOMENT TO SHOW WHO THE HELL WE ARE. THIS IS OUR GAME TO SHOW WHAT THE 2015 FIGHTIN' TEXAS AGGIE FOOTBALL TEAM IS ALL ABOUT.

FEEL YOUR PULSE RISING. FEEL YOUR ANGER BOILING OVER. FOCUS ON YOUR JOB AND WHAT YOU AS A FAN ARE CALLED TO DO. IN ORDER FOR OUR TEAM TO BE GREAT ON THE FIELD, WE NEED TO BE GREAT IN THE STANDS. NOT GOOD--GREAT. WE NEED TO BE PERFECT IN EVERY FACET OF THE GAME AND THAT MEANS BUSTING YOUR ASS WHILE WATCHING THE GAME. DO YOUR JOB.

HOW

GOOD

CAN

WE

BE

I KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION. I'VE HEARD IT BEFORE AT KYLE. BUT I WANT MORE. I WANT MORE. I WANT LOUDER, MORE INTENSE AND MORE FOCUSED.

LET'S DO THIS DAMN THING. LET'S DO WHAT WE AS A FOOTBALL TEAM, PROGRAM, AND FANBASE ARE WIRED AND BUILT TO DO.

THIS IS OUR DAY. THIS IS OUR GAME.

NUMBERS

3-BIG PLAYERS MAKE BIG PLAYS IN BIG GAMES

5-CHURN UP FIELD

10-BE THE GENERAL

11/11-BOTH OF YOU...LEAD THIS TEAM. DO YOUR JOB.

12-WE NEED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU

15-CAN YOU BE GREAT IN THIS GAME. HOW GREAT CAN YOU BE.

56/65/73/74/79-THIS GAME IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS. IF YOU DO YOUR JOB, EVERYONE ELSE WILL DO THEIRS.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT HOW GOOD ALABAMA IS. I ONLY CARE ABOUT HOW GREAT WE CAN BE. AND IF WE CAN BE GREAT FOR ONE GAME. 4 QUARTERS OF PLAY. IF WE CAN HIT THEM IN THE MOUTH ON EVERY SINGLE GD PLAY THEN I KNOW HOW THIS GAME WILL TURN OUT.

HIT THEM IN THE DAMN MOUTH

WE CAN BE GREAT. WE WILL BE GREAT. WE WERE BUILT FOR THIS MOMENT RIGHT HERE.

BEAT

HELL
