    That folks is one of the classiest things we have ever done. What a great tribute to those players, Coach Bryant, the two universities and to us old guys who were around then.

    Nice. And any other Saturday, I might say 'Gig em aggies' but not tomorrow. We need to dominate and then be classy after the game. I'm always uneasy when they do things like this.

    It is strangely odd and interesting the history these 2 schools have shared. This is one reason why I never had a problem with A&M joining the SEC. I really hope that this game develops into a big rivalry for the schools. Not a mean spirited one like the UT and Iron Bowl have become, but one built out of mutual respect. I doubt it will happen but, it would be nice if it grew to be bigger then UT and/or the Iron Bowl. I have no doubt it will be our #3 rivalry pretty soon.

    In fact, the schools should come together and develop a name for the game with a unique trophy or something. Maybe call it the Junction Bowl and the trophy could be a bronze houndstooth hat. IDK, just thinking out loud but, I think something like that would be pretty neat.

    It is probably smart to get a proper recognition of this out of the way before the inevitable bad blood competition brews comes.

    You could argue that without the Junction Boys, there isn't a modern Alabama football program...
