Let’s face it, there are no exciting games this week. Auburn and LSU is intriguing, but shouldn’t be much of a contest. Bet the house on the Tigers (I made that same joke last year. I’ll probably make it next year. You’ve been warned). Stanford versus Arizona State might have some upset potential. I can hope that Texas A&M is looking past my alma mater and the Mustangs pull an upset, but that’s not going to happen. I’ll watch the Kansas State versus Texas game, but only because I’m a masochist and like counting missed tackles. Heck, ESPN’s College Gameday is at a North Dakota State/Delaware game this week. Besides that, not much else to look forward to, so I’m going to skip talking about games and try the ABCs of Texas football. A-M this week, N-Z later on.
A is for Aggies. They may have lost the game of the (you pick your superlative) but they are saying all of the right things, about how they can still win the conference, etc.
B is for Baylor. I can’t wait until these guys play some decent teams. Their offense is almost Oregonian at this point, averaging 69.5 points per game.
C is for conference play. It can’t get here soon enough.
D is for Defense. If A&M IS going to challenge for an SEC title, they need their’s to be better. They are giving up more yards per rush than UT is.
E is for ESPN. They control college football anyway. And, no, Aggies, Longhorns, Red Raiders, Sooners, etc, etc, etc, they aren’t out to get you. They just aren’t.
F is for Finebaum. Thanks to College Gameday, the nation is starting to become familiar what those in SEC country have known forever: he’s annoying, he’s a homer and he is the absolute authority on anything SEC.
G is for Garrett Gilbert. Keep trying buddy. We all believe in you.
H is for Heisman. Can Manziel win it again? He seems to be closer than some people want
I is for Interesting. I can’t wait for conference play to start. I have no idea who is winning the Big XII, but it could be anyone of six teams. Same with the SEC. Who knows what conference SMU is in, but I’m sure there’s a gaggle of teams behind Louisville awaiting their chance.
J is for Johnny. The reigning Heisman winner put on quite a show last week against Alabama. He made some incredible plays, a couple of mistakes, irritated the opposition and further endeared himself to the Aggie faithful.
K is for Kliff Kingsbury. He seems to have a handle on this head coaching thing.
L is for Loss. Another loss for SMU, UT, TCU and their fans are going to start getting restless (or more restless).
M is for Mack. Thanks for everything you’ve done for The University. You have been incredible. Maybe it’s time to see what someone else can do.
