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!
