    Re: Congrats Texas A&M for a heckuva victory.

    I'm just sitting here remembering all of the threads surrounding aTm's entrance into the SEC. There were a lot of TF posters, including me, that basically made laughing remarks about TAMU's chances of winning against the "stronger" teams, especially in their first few years.
    So I have to ask myself: Who's laughing now?
    As much as it hurts, I have to congratulate aTm on a great game. No ifs, ands or buts, and no excuses. We got whipped good from start to finish. And that kid Manziell - what an awesome game he played. That kid can hit anything from anywhere, and under pressure no less. He's going to give everyone headaches for years to come.

    Congrats Texas A&M for a heckuva victory.

    Admittedly I'm not the most gracious loser. But I'll say that as an Alabamian, I'm proud of Coach Sumlin. TAMU is lucky to have him. He's done a fantastic job at all of his stops. And leading up to and after the game, he's done nothing but exemplify class to the nth degree. He's exhibit A of how nice guys don't always finish last.

    So Kudos to him. I'd rather not lose at all, but if I had to, I'd rather it be to him instead a Miles (goofball) , Spurrier (smug mug), or Chizik (fill in the blank).

    How he holds up? The kid just played LSU, State, and Bama. He is in physically better shape than AJ right now. I think he will hold up fine as he gets stronger and matures as a man.

Bama has been my 2nd favorite team behind A&M, but I'm certainly glad that I found this board. You all have a ton of football knowledge! It was refreshing to see a fan base like yours handle the game and the loss as graciously as you did. My hats off to you and your team! Thank you all again for letting Aggies, including myself, post on your board. I truly hope that you all still find your way to the MNC and win it all!
    Wing, you know I hate Aggies. But I have to say that Sumlin was an outstanding hire and I love your QB. What ya'll have done in a short period of time is amazing.

    IDK, he didn't seem to be so anxious to take on hits after the first quarter. I'd temper that by saying I haven't rewatched the game, but I remember seeing him pass up opportunities to scramble in the second half. I'm not going to anoint him Superman yet. Go ahead, if you wish. We don't have to agree and you don't have to beat a dead horse, either...

    Re: Congrats Texas A&M for a heckuva victory.

    As an unbiased observer of the game between you guys and a and m i have to say that a and m got lucky on a few plays yesterday. Especially the scrambling td pass manziel made in the first half where he lost control of the ball and got it right back. Ive heard more than a few of the experts say that a and m dominated bama and how a and m played more physically than bama. I just didnt see any domination of alabama yesterday at all. In my opinion alabama beat themselves. I think if bamas special teams doesnt commit that penalty near the end of the game yesterday we are looking at a different outcome today.

    I agree with you, GaDawg, regarding the end of the game. I never give up on Bama. I thought Bama still had a chance with A & M getting ready to punt. I thought that Christian Jones would take the punt to the house or at least put us in a position for AJ to lead us down a short field.

    But with that offsides penalty, I threw in the towel. I think Coach Saban was right to question the officials regarding the penalty call. Offsides. Did our man get offsides or was he called offsides for moving. I'll have to look at the replay but I sure don't think he was offsides. I think that was illegal procedure on their lineman (right tackle, I think).

    Also, I say with that last drive and after the long pass to #7, the Tide should have tried to run the ball down their throats from the 6 yard line: using ALL 4 downs if necessary. There is not much room to squeeze in a pass so drive down their throats.

    Re: Congrats Texas A&M for a heckuva victory.

    Also, one final thought. Will college recruiters be looking for a Manziel clone to play QB instead of telling them that they are being recruited as a DB?

    Re: Congrats Texas A&M for a heckuva victory.

    I just want to add my hat tip to this thread. A&M played outstanding and did not fold when the momentum started to shift. Yes our team made some mistakes that could have possibly changed the outcome, but they also caused some.

    Re: Congrats Texas A&M for a heckuva victory.

    Just think, if aTm makes one more play here or there against LSU or Florida, they could have been headed to Atlanta in their first season in the SEC.

    A&M called a great offensive game and Manziel is just phenomenal. They deserved to win.

    All their fans that I ran into before and after the game were very nice and complimentary. Manziel should get the Heisman even as a Freshman.
