    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.
    TexasRebel: Payback for Fran? You guys stole Fran with our assistance. Y'all probably still have a "short rope" to prove it. Coach Stoops was kind not to put more than 77 on the Aggies and the Fran man.

    Coach Bryant was an Alabama Alum who played on an Alabama National Championship team. He even played against Tennessee with a broken leg. Man, what's wrong with our current players? You were just lucky you had him for a few years and he was lucky that he didn't kill anyone at Junction, Texas.

    I refuse to talk about the penalties, especially the last one.

    The Bad: Still no pass rush, 3 turnovers (2 by AJ)

    The Ugly: A&M did whatever they wanted to do on offense

    The Good: We still have a few more years of Coach Saban as our Head Coach
    The Bad: I believe the defense lacks the # of big play-maker's than in past years.
    The Ugly: I am not seeing young budding superstars on the defense either like young McClain, Hightower, Barron and Kilpatrick's. Other than Millner, who are they?

    Let's not give up on some players just yet. DePriest, Moseley, Ha'Ha, Lake, Duvall just to name a few. Big Lake is just a puppy and that big thang just looks like a Mt. Cody waiting to erupt. Development takes time, part of a player's development are the elements of time and failures. Speaking from a present tense standpoint, no, we do not have a superstar like Hightower, McClain, Barron, Cody, Upshaw. but the physical talent is there to develop into those type players. Let's just be patient and see how these guys handle the rest of the season and the offseason. I like our spot.

    Good point. Everyone but Bama fans are impressed with almost everything to do with our program right now...

    The Good: Even when we play our worst, we are still in position to win games.

    The Bad: Our lack of discipline on Defense...something Alabama always prides itself on.

    The Ugly: As others have said...the embarrassing play calling when you are 1st and Goal from the 6...and have every chance in the world to win the game...and we all know what happened. It's almost as bad as "Darby up the middle".

    I fully expect us to refocus and dominate out next 3 opponents...which would put us in a BCS Bowl...either in NOLA or Miami depending on what else plays out.
    I remember my first game as a child and the amazing feeling I got when I first walked into Bryant-Denny. I still get that same feeling every single game.
