The excitement /anxiety at the Texas Poker Store (and in our house) is mounting as we get closer and closer to the start of the Texas A&M football season. The Aggies kick it off tomorrow night at 5 p.m. (CST), on the SEC Network, against #9 South Carolina in Columbia. And, according to Las Vegas, the Gamecocks are 10 ½ point favorites!
If we were betting with cash, we’d take the points and go with the Aggies. Instead, we’re going to launch our annual “Predict the Score” contest that we hold for all conference games. Whoever comes the closest to predicting the final score will win a professional set of Copag Peek-Index Poker Cards including a durable, solid carrying case. If there’s a tie, whoever made the correct prediction first is the winner, so you don’t have much time to fool around.
In our opinion, most of the pundits seem to be too focused on who we lost (mainly Manziel, Mike Evans and Jake Matthews) as well as the memory of how awful our defense was last year. We prefer to think positively. Not only do we think our offense is loaded with major weapons at WR, such as Ricky Seals-Jones, Speedy Noils, Cam Clear, Malcom Kennedy and more, but we have running backs with talent and experience and an O-Line that should match up well against any opponent. Unfortunately, this is a very tough match-up for the first game of the season, especially playing in a hostile environment. Same thing for the defense. We are confident that improvements have been made at every position, but will it all come together in the first game?
What do you think? Will the Aggies surprise everyone and catapult themselves into a top ten team after their first road game? Or will the pundits be right, with the Ags taking a two-score beating as predicted? Predict the score now for your chance to be the first Texas Poker Store winner of the 2014-15 football season!
