It’s almost here. Whether you call it the Game of the Season or the Great Showdown of 2013, or the most highly anticipated regular season game EVER, we all know that the Aggie vs. Bama game has preoccupied Nick Saban’s mind since Johnny Manziel and the Aggies sliced up the defense of his national championship team in Tuscaloosa. It’s the only blemish on his 2012 record and Saban wants to A.J. McCarron vs Johnny Football Manzielwipe that stain away and stop Johnny Football. For our part, we think that Kevin Sumlin is just as competitive as Saban –just in a cooler and more likeable way — and we also believe that nobody wants this win more than Manziel. Nobody. That’s why we’re all in for the Aggies.

After last Saturday’s historic Aggie Football win over previously unbeaten Alabama, to say nothing of all the national media attention focused on the Aggies and the much-deserved Heisman talk surrounding Johnny Football, aka HeisManziel, some might expect a let-down going into this week’s game against the Sam Houston State Bearkats. But that’s not the way this team operates, and I fully believe that Sumlin, Kingsbury, Snyder and the rest of the superb Aggie coaching staff are treating practice and the upcoming game the way they’ve treated every other game during this amazing season.

The Ags start each new week at 1-0, and they will do the same this week, knowing that they want to win out for the seniors, for the 12th man and for a potential BCS Bowl game. So, as usual, I’m putting all my poker chips on the Aggies, and this week I’m predicting some huge numbers to add to JFF’s incredible stats.

In a few hours the 7-2 Fightin’ Texas Aggie football team will take on the 9-0 Alabama Crimson Tide, the number one team in the country. When Texas A&M joined the SEC, most predicted it would take a few years until the Aggies would be able to compete successfully in the “League of Champions.” Very few imagined how impressive their debut in the SEC would be, or that they’d be playing in a highly meaningful game in November against Alabama. But here we are, playing at 2:30, with the eyes of the nation focused on the Aggies, Johnny Football, the explosive Aggie offense and the surprisingly tough Aggie defense, heading into a game with huge consequences for either team, but especially the Aggies. Win or lose against undefeated Bama, however, it has been an amazing journey under head coach Kevin Sumlin. And we’re going all in with our poker chips for the Aggies to win, in the biggest upset of the 2012 football season.

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!
