So true. I was there, and it was crazy loud. I think our fans did a great job. Our team had a chance to win, but just came up short. I am a little upset that I dished out $200.00 for a ticket, and we lost. This was the first game I've been to that we have lost. It is not a good feeling.

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him. - Jer. 17:7
I don't mind spending money, but I hate wasting it.
"If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride--and never quit--you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards." Coach Paul Bryant
The Good: This team plays until the end and NEVER gives up on a game.
The Bad: Failing to wrap up on defense. Hurt us last week. Killed us yesterday.
The Ugly: Abandoning our run game when everything was on the line and we had gouged them for over 4 yards/carry. We lost our identity yesterday afternoon.
The Good: Despite getting behind 20-0, the guys fought hard and never gave up.
The Bad: Way too many 3 and outs. Kept our wounded "D" on the field too long too many times.
The UGLY: Did not like the 4th down call at the end of the game. Not much margin for error. He was covered and AJ had to force it
And a Big ROLL TIDE TO YOU!!!!
From the other side:
G: The atmosphere and the game. The atmosphere seemed amazing last night (even while watching on TV) Not typical of games I've watched. We'll call this payback for Fran, but you still owe a little for Bryant .
B: It's one of those self defeating situations. No Aggie could want a TAMU loss just to leave an SECw team undefeated (especially in year 1. There was more on the line last night for us than just one game). We know what happened yesterday, but that's the mess that is the BCS. All of the Aggies I know are behind Alabama taking the title this year, personally, I hate to think we messed that up.
U: The officiating was bad. Not completely lopsided like we finally got away from, just bad both ways. Seeing a flag fly is like entering the lottery. Most of the time you have no idea what the call is going to be based on what has and has not been called previously in the game. My dream is for just one game, one, where nobody notices the officials.
maybe next year the cycle will reverse. TAMU > LSU, LSU > 'Bama, 'Bama > TAMU...
of course... then it'll be tradition.
The Good: The players seem ready to hit the field to avenge our loss by browsing twitter, we still have a shot at the SEC title no matter what, and still have a shot at the BCSNC even after losing.
The Bad: Our preparedness for aTm's offense, trying to sub in players EVERY SINGLE TIME aTm subbed to try and slow them down. Caused why too much confusion.
The Ugly: Playcalling.
Good - Texas A&M. They proved to be a real threat in the SEC.
Bad - Mistakes. Alabama had more than enough opportunities to get a win, but failed to capitalize.
Ugly - Rival/Opposing fans post game comments. You would think their team beat Alabama.
"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act" - George Orwell
First year in The League and totally embarrass us in our own stadium. First year head coach and he did not need 2 or 3 years to turn the Aggies around. He didn't even need a year. SEC Coach of the year!
P.S. the Gators and the Geaux Tigers are very lucky that they were able to survive and barely beat the Aggies.
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, Give me Liberty, or give me Death!" Patrick Henry
Good: We were resilient and came back and had a chance to win it. You absolutely can't ask for anything more after being down 20 points.
Bad: Young mistakes but that's ok. We learned something yesterday. We'll do better because of it.
Ugly: Some young players trying to win it in one play but like I said, they learned and I know we won't make the same mistakes again. Everything happens for a reason. You never know... this could be getting us ready for the NCG against Oregon or next year's NCG. You never know as we saw from last season.
Guys, we are the Yankees are the Crimson Tide of MLB. They're hated because they win just like us. I wouldn't trade that position for anything in the world. We do not need national media love to know we're the class of the South and the Nation. ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
“I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games.” - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.
The Good - We are Ala-Freaking-Bama. We still put fear in the hearts of many schools, and many schools dream to be us.
The Bad - Qb pressure, we don't have that dominate lineman who can continually put pressure on the Qb.
The Ugly - we lost BUT we can still go to the SEC championship and the big dance if a couple of teams mess up and we win out like we should.
And always Roll Tide Roll.
