    Re: My first post from an A&M graduate - Please do the world a favor

    I'm another Fightin' Texas Aggie making his first post. I'm also a Bama Dad (and y'all made my daughter a football fan in her first semester at Bama - something I failed to do).

    First, I really admire and appreciate your university and fan base. I was at our game in T-Town and you were incredibly gracious hosts. Now, it's easy to be gracious when you believe you're going to beat the crap out of the other team. It's much harder when the other team wins. However, Tide fans were at their best when you lost. You were congratulatory, complementary, and just darn nice (i.e., I don't think I met any Finebaum callers).

    Several Bammers told me they hoped we would become good rivals. I hope we're good enough in the coming years to earn a rivalry. It would be... different to have a rival we respected.

    Tonight, our freshman QB made history for A&M, the SEC, and the NCAA. I don't think it's a stretch to think that our QB would be watching the Heisman from College Station if we had not been welcomed into the SEC. So glad to be here.

    I hope y'all beat the ever living, ever loving, yankee, football fraud, drunken irish hell out of ND. RTR and Gig 'Em!

    Crazy--Neither Michigan State's nor Notre Dame's 1966 teams even played in a bowl game.

    The #7-ranked Boilermakers earned their first-ever Rose Bowl berth after going 82, (61 Big Ten) and finishing second in the Big Ten Conference. League champion Michigan State had gone unbeaten at 70 in league play, but was barred from returning to Pasadena under the Big Ten's "no-repeat" rule. Purdue's only losses had come at the hands of both Michigan State and Notre Dame, who had played to atie on November 19.

    Notre Dame believed that bowl games infringed upon Academics and did not play in them until the late 1960s
