Texas A&M Blows It BIG Time!

Yes, sad, but true. Texas A&M lost their home opener to the mighty Arkansas State Red Wolves. You may remember them as the Indians. But alas, they succumbed to the pressure of the NCAA and the political correctness that has saturated that body, and changed their name to the Red Wolves. The name change happened so recently, that all the internet logos for the team still have them listed as the Indians.Apparently the name change has benefited them, because they beat Texas A&M 18-14. A&M looked pathetic. The Red Wolves took advantage. Coach Mike Sherman’s coaching debut has gotten off to a bad start.

Here’s what others are saying:

ESPN’s Tim Griffin:

Texas A&M’s 18-14 loss to Arkansas State was the worst possible start for new A&M coach Mike Sherman. The debacle was even more galling than merely the program’s first home opening-game loss in 21 years — particularly to a Sun Belt team that finished 5-7 last season and had never beaten a Big 12 team in 15 tries. The Aggies missed two field goals, allowed four sacks, committed four turnovers and the defense was gashed for 280 yards rushing. Even worse, A&M turtle-backed in the second half, squandering a 14-3 lead by failing to score on its final eight possessions.

ESPN.com

Two coaches attempting drastic change lost their openers at their respective schools. Texas A&M, transitioning to a pro-set offense, lost at home to Arkansas State, 18-14. It might make new coach Mike Sherman feel better if he knew that the last two head coaches to lose their Aggies debuts, Jackie Sherrill and Gene Stallings, own national championship rings.

On the other hand, neither Sherrill nor Stallings won his ring at Texas A&M.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a long season for us Aggies…
