So here we are again – Bowl games and New Year’s Eve. It’s hard to believe another year has passed at the speed of light, we have played a lot of poker hands, watched a lot of football games, played a lot of music and now are ending the year with our favorite college football team, the Fighting Texas A&M Aggies going up against the Louisville Cardinals in the Music City Bowl in Nashville.
What Aggie fans are hoping for is a fourth straight Bowl win under Kevin Sumlin, basing their hopes primarily on Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall’s ability to sack the QB and dominate the Louisville offense. On the other hand, the Cardinals’ D has been extremely tough against opposing offenses, and the Aggie offensive line has had plenty of trouble with less talented teams. Add to that the fact that Jake Hubenak, A&M quarterback, will be making his first career start . . . in a Bowl game. Hubenak, however, has a strong, accurate arm and if the Ags get Tra Carson running the rock early and then let Hubenak choose his receiver, we are betting on the Aggies winning this match-up in a close game. We don’t have much longer to wait; the game is on in less than an hour!
Then, tomorrow night it will be New Year’s Eve. Unbelievable. We’re going to stay home and enjoy a quiet poker game among friends as we usher in 2016. Happy New Year to all!

There’s only a couple of things we know for sure going into the Texas A&M vs. South Carolina football game this Saturday. The first is that all eyes will be on the quarterback, whoever he is. After the abysmal showing by Kyle Allen (and the entire offense) against Ole Miss last week, Coach Kevin Sumlin announced that Kyle Allen, Kyler Murray and Jake Hubenak, his three scholarship QBs, would be competing for the start against the Gamecocks. Whoever gets the nod will be revealed on Friday.
The second thing we know is that the forecast is for wet and rainy conditions, which means the Aggie offense will be simplified, which also means we might not learn as much as we’d like about changes in the Aggie offense. We also might, or might not learn as much about the Aggies as we’d like, since playing South Carolina is not the same as playing Ole Miss or Alabama. This was supposedly an easy win back when everything was coming up roses. In other words, if we win it, it still doesn’t tell us that much. On the other hand, if the Ags struggle or lose, we’ll know all we need to know.
Last week no one won our “Predict the Score” contest, even though several of you did predict that Ole Miss would win, everyone of y’all went over. So let’s try again … Whoever predicts the final score first, without going over, will be the next “Texas Poker Store Predict the Score” prizewinner, walking away with 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.
