The Texas A&M Aggies football team had its ups and downs this season, and certainly aren’t playing in the bowl game they might have imagined when they came out of the gate blazing to beat South Carolina. But don’t doubt for a minute that they want to beat the West Virginia Mountaineers this Monday in the AZO Liberty Bowl. In fact, they really need this win to go into the off-season on a high note. Of course, it means a lot to the seniors like Malcome Kennedy and DeShazor Everett, who will be playing their last game for the maroon and white. And, those seniors have the rare opportunity to win four straight bowl games in a row. But most importantly, as Kevin Sumlin likes to point out, the bowl game is really the first step of the next season, and if that’s the case then all Aggie fans will have their eyes on their talented youngsters: Kyle Allen, Speedy Noil, Ricky Seals-Jones and Myles Garrett.bowlanza

This is going to be a close game. The Aggie offense will have to protect the quarterback, block, establish a running game and catch (and hold onto) the passes thrown by an ever-improving Kyle Allen. And the defense will have to put tremendous pressure on the WVU quarterback, Skyler Howard, to stop him from throwing accurately to his number one receiver, All-American Kevin White. It’s not going to be easy because White is a threat similar to Amari Cooper, who the Aggie D couldn’t stop from gaining 140 yards and two touchdowns in their brutal defeat against Alabama. But this isn’t ‘Bama . . . and the Mountaineers, although good, are good for the Big 12 and hopefully not so good against the SEC.TPS Poker Chips

So we’re putting our poker chips on the Aggies to begin next season by getting the “W” in Memphis. Time to put away the poker table and focus on football.

It’s hard to believe, but tomorrow, on Thanksgiving, the Aggies will be playing in their last conference game of the season. It was a difficult season, too, with so many ups and downs, so many great expectations and so many disappointments along the way. What we know is that we have some amazing young talent on the squad and that the future of this football team looks incredibly promising. But what about the immediate future? What about Thanksgiving night, in front of a national audience, at Kyle Field?

Had things gone slightly differently in a few of our games (okay, maybe very differently) this game could have meant something else; it could have been HUGE. But it still means a whole lot to Aggie fans. It could mean going out on a high rather than with the bitter taste of that heart-breaking loss against Mizzou (played without five of our best defensive players, btw) as our last regular season memory. The possibility of a better bowl game and a far more respectable record will be on the line. But most importantly, it would mean that we finally figured out how to beat LSU, a team that has had our number the last two years of SEC play. That’s because LSU plays that old-style, pound the ball, ram it down your throats running game and stops their opponents from scoring with their big, strong, powerful defense. We do NOT match up well.

a-n-m-lsuYet hope springs eternal in the hearts of college football fans, especially the ones in maroon and white. We have the talented freshman quarterback, Kyle Allen, getting better every day, who can sling that ball to an array of great receivers, from Speedy Noil to Josh Reynolds to  senior Malcome Kennedy to RSJ. Those guys have proven they can be play makers; they will have to be against LSU’s deep and physical secondary, fifth best in the country against the pass. If Allen has the time, which he might since LSU has not been putting much pressure on quarterbacks this year, it will be up to the receivers to battle it out with the safeties and corners in the backfield.

So, some questions are: will our defense be able to stop the the Tigers’ running game? Will they be able to hold their own in the trenches where LSU dominates or against their bruising running backs and 295-pound tight end, Dillon Gordon? Will the Aggies be able to get any kind of a running game going so that every down doesn’t become a predictable passing play? Will Myles Garrett be the kind of impact player he has been before his concussion and that we need him to be on Thanksgiving? Will the entire Aggie football team be able to hang with the physically abusive team from LSU or will they get over-powered a third time?

If the Aggies stay focused, physical and intense, if they want this win more than the Tigers do, if they want this win for their seniors, they can win this game. And that would be a helluva good reason to give thanks.Poker Chip set from the Texas Poker Store

Texas A&M is coming off a bad beat by Mississippi State last week. Kenny Hill was not the quarterback we saw against lesser teams, the wide receivers dropped more passes than they caught and the O-line did not block as well as usual. And the defense; especially the linebackers and secondary, were destroyed.

reveille-ol-miss2Unfortunately, this week the Aggies face the number one defense in the country in Ole Miss. Normally, we’d be totally pumped because of our explosive offense. This week, not so much, unless the coaches make some major adjustments, Malcome Kennedy comes back healthy, the offense runs the ball more and takes some pressure off Kenny , the WRs overcome their temporary fear of catching the football and the Aggie “D” becomes about ten times more aggressive. If anyone feels pressure, it needs to be Bo Wallace.

So, who do you predict will win, and what’s your prediction for the final score? Dak Prescott was perfect for MSU last week. Bo Wallace was “the good Bo Wallace” against Alabama last week when they beat the Tide, but maybe he’ll have a letdown this week. Will a return to Kyle Field and a whole lot of coaching give the Aggies any advantage? Will Reveille take a bite out of Ole Miss?

What an incredible game it was between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Texas A&M Aggies. We had many of our customers and followers predict that the Aggies would crush the Hogs.  “Big Daddy” Paul predicted that “Aggies make pulled pork BBQ out of the hogs 56 to 17.”  We are certain all of you were on pins and needles as the giant Hogs not just held their own but forged ahead 21 to 14 at the half on a fake punt. They continued pushing the Ags around through the 3rd quarter to go ahead 28 to 14.  Then, in the 4th the Aggies seemed to have licked their wounds and came out with a vengeance scoring two TDs to tie it up and send us into OT.

Aggies defeat RazorbacksBy this time we had already chewed our nails to the quick and anxiously watched as Kenny Hill drilled one to Malcome Kennedy who took it for 25-yards to score on the first play of overtime. Then, our defense stopped the piggies in their tracks and, with the help of Julien Obioha (who made an outstanding game-ending defensive stop), kept  the Aggies  undefeated with a 35-28 victory over Arkansas.

We want to congratulate Marcell Liner for predicting a 34-14 Aggie win, coming the closest first and thus winning a set of Copag “Peek-Index” poker cards from the Texas Poker Store.
