With the combination of a gifted and multifaceted offense, led by redshirt freshman, Johnny “Football” Manzeil, and a dominating defense, the Aggie football team had a field day against Southern Methodist, beating them 48-3 in the Aggies’ second game of the season. Manzeil proved that he can do more than just pose a threat with his legs, throwing the ball accurately down the field, hitting Ryan Swope, Kenric McNeal, Uzoma Nwachukwu and freshman Mike Evans among others and accounting for 418 total yards and six touchdowns in three quarters. And the defense was imposing, holding the usually high-scorning Mustangs to 3 points and playing with fierce intensity for the entire game. Damontre Moore was a total beast, adding two more sacks to his total of five after two games.
Was it perfect? No. There are still some penalty problems to work on, and of course, we were playing a non-conference team. But if the Aggies continue to improve at the rate we fans are seeing, we just might do some real damage in the SEC. There’s certainly a lot to be excited about in Aggieland, and hats off to Sumlin, Snyder, Kingsbury and the rest of the fine coaching crew for making some incredibly positive changes in the Aggie game plan and mind set.
See y’all at Kyle field next Saturday when the Texas A&M Aggies host the South Carolina Bulldogs, I don’t know about you, but my game plan is to put my poker chips on the Aggies, and my mind is set on going all in!
