We predicted a win by the Ags in our last blog, but even we didn’t anticipate the lopsided score or the overwhelming dominance – on offense and defense — that the Texas A&M football team would display at the Cotton Bowl. Johnny Football lived up to all the hype and more, as he erased any doubts about why he won the Heisman and obliterated the theories that there would be a Heisman letdown after the banquet circuit. In fact, he set an FBS bowl record with 229 yards rushing and 267 yards passing, becoming the 4th player in FBS history with 20 passing and 20 rushing touchdowns in a season. And he has three more years to be our quarterback!
It was an awesome night to be an Aggie fan. We at the Texas Poker Store want to thank Aggie Athletics, Aggie Football, Coach Sumlin and his entire staff for an incredible year. For us poker players, it’s time to get back to the poker tables. But we do it as we sadly say goodbye to our outstanding seniors and eagerly await the 2013 football season. And next year, let’s hope we get our shot at the national title we should have gotten this year!
