I’m trying not to be excited about this game, but it is a big one. Two number 10s haven’t played one another at Kyle Field since 1975. That was long before I was an Aggie, so you can tell it’s a big deal.
OSU has had the Aggies number the last three years. I hope they have lost their phone book and the Aggies rise to the occasion, but I will not make any bold predictions, other than the following:
- I will finish my sermon and the bulletin in the next hour!
- I will go to the grocery store to get my chili fixins!
- I will cook a big pot of chili for the game!
- I will watch the game with a lot of comfort food during the game.
- I will promise to start that diet once again on Monday…
Gig ‘Em Aggies! Beat OSU!
BTW, it looks like the Big 12-2/3 survived the week. Turns out the Pac 10 didn’t want Texas after all. So the Big 12-2/3 will press on… also, without worthless leader Dan Beebe. The forced him out this week and the conference may have a chance at this point, but not with A&M. The Aggies are still set on going to the SEC, which I hope will take place. Much tougher conference. But to be a big boy, you have to play with the big boys!!!
UPDATE: Needless to say I’m quite put out by the Aggies second half performance. They went into half time with a 20-3 lead and lost the game 30-29. They looked horrible during the second half. The truth of the matter is that the Aggies just can’t handle the national limelight. The heat is too much for them. Whenever they start getting ranked in the top 10, it’s just too much for them and they do every thing they can to make sure they fall to the lower 25 and beyond. How they won the national championship in 1939 is beyond me.
I guess with the Aggies move into the SEC, I should get use to losing. Look at the Arkansas Razorbacks. How long have they been in the SEC and they still haven’t adjusted to live there.
BTW, on a more important note, the chili was excellent once again. Andy liked it. Joey hasn’t had any yet, he’s too busy playing.
