    This is surprising to me, considering that they are a "COW COLLEGE". They are the Auburn of Texas.

So therefore, I think the score will be 42-28 with Alabama winning the game in the second half. Our (A&M's) defense is good, but we have almost zero quality depth and we'll get worn down by your starters and depth (most of whom could be starters for other major programs). I grew up watching Alabama football and have always wanted you all to win. My sister attended your school and graduated with 2 degrees, so Bama holds a soft spot in my heart. Too bad for me, they will break my heart if they beat my Aggies. I do think that we'll give you one heck of a game though, or at least hope so.
    While it is certainly not out of the realm of possibility that A&M beats Alabama, I don't expect it to happen this time. However, they way Sumlin appears to be building things there, and the way other programs in the West appear to be going, A&M is going to be in prime position to play for an SEC title sooner rather than later.

    i'm just onboard with this aggie thing. good team? yes. great team? no. bottom line is aTm fell to the two teams that have real defenses that they have played and nothings gonna change saturday. every week, thats all i her is how " this is gonna be bamas real challenge" and the weeks come and go and here we are right on top. i'm thinking the best defense in the country is mad as heck for that crappy display last saturday and then there will be a force to be reckoned with. roll tide roll.

    they cant score if they dont have the ball, and unlike LSU we'll control the game clock in this one

    The Texas A & M campus in College Station is not even close to comparing with the University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa. UA has a beautiful campus. ATM is just plain UGLY!

He is proof any idiot can have a show on the internet.
    So, we've had a Barn East and now we have a Barn West.

    But they Dominated the last two SEC opponents...shouldn't that make them elite?

    I am sure Auburn would appreciate how the Aggie fans think so highly of the team.

    Re: Aggies fans opinion and prediction

    The thing about our DE's being slow shows an absolute lack of understanding in regards to a 3-4 personnel defense. Alabama will be in 4-2-5 most of the game and likely one ore two Jack LBs will be playing end most of the game. Square will probably keep his SDE position on early downs and sub for Devall or Dickson/Hubbard on obvious passing looks. In fact, I like Square in most situations anyway because he's sneaky fast. His physicality makes his ability to go around a linemen a little easier...they expect bull rush and get something different.

    Also, I don't think our gameplan will be to even try to get the end of the line rushers around the corner. We'll see most of our pressures come directly into the face of Manziel while the ends set the corner to maintain contain on any attempts to leave the pocket. They said it themselves, Manziel thrives on the blitz. We'll probably rarely blitz more than 5 on Saturday. If pressure does come, it will almost always be the additional 5th guy from some kind of late stunt or twist into the middle of the pocket.

    To me, that sounds like the opinion of someone who has watched exactly one Bama game this season. It's a similar opinion to a lot of the internet sports writers that just can't grasp that Saturday's game against LSU was the exception, not the rule. Bama will be ready, the secondary in Nickel/Dime situations will be every bit as stingy as they were for the first 8 games, and Manziel will not be able to pull off the plays with his legs to win this game.

    Our defense was in base almost all of the LSU game. When we play nickel, I think we have better personnel groupings and match up better against passing games. Nico is a beast, but his one big area struggling is in pass coverage; Nick Perry is also better against the run than the pass and LSU exploited that (in addition to Belue; although I think Belue was in good position most of the time, the ball was just too high for him to reach).

    The one thing I haven't seen discussed is going to be the attitude our defense is going to come in with. I know they are somewhat tired but they are not happy campers with the way the played against LSU. I would expect some foul tempered defensive lineman and LB's to not take kindly to someone coming to BDS and saying their slow, yada, yada, yada. I fully expect them to play at a higher level. TAMU will get points, they are a very good offense but interrupt their timing and Mr. Football better be fleet of foot. JMO.

    Re: Aggies fans opinion and prediction

    LSU managed to hang with us due to equal talent and winning the turnover battle. Although aTm is a talented and deserving team with an extremely gifted athlete improvising against lesser talented teams that won't be the case Saturday afternoon. Our defensive game plan won't be persuit of JM, it'll be containing him. He'll probably jail break on us a couple times but he won't run free very often. And when he does I expect to see another "COLLISION" similar, if not the same, as Millener had on Denard. It's great to go into this contest with confidence but the ball is going to have bounce funny in aTm's favor on more than one occasion for them to pull off the upset. I just don't see that happening. Bama wins in Bama style pulling away in the 4th quarter.

    Re: Aggies fans opinion and prediction

    I went to both schools and I have seen every A&M and Bama game this year. Many in person including the LSU game this past Saturday. A&M will give Bama some trouble with their offense but they lack the depth and special teams to upset Bama on the Road. A&M has nothing to lose so that makes them scary. But Bama is to well coached and they have great balance on offense and they will be able to make second half adjustments A&M will not be able to counter. I like Bama 38 to 24. THis will be a good game for Bama to see how they will match up against Oregon. A&M is very similar to Oregon - they have a stable of good receivers and 3 quality running backs and they are now running ther offense at a very similar pace.
