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.  Music City Bowl

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!

For only the second time this season, the Texas A&M Aggies are traveling out of the state of Texas to play the Vanderbilt Commodores. The Commodores have some impressive credentials on defense, allowing only 25 percent of third down conversions and ranking fourth in the NCAA in red zone defense. For the Aggies, that sounds pretty intimidating, especially with their meager Red Zone production.

Texas A&M vs VanderbiltOn the other hand, the Aggies have the offensive weapons, know how to score, and if they play up to their potential they should take home a win. That is, if they can figure out which of their two star QBs will start, much less give them the best chance to win. Hopefully, some of their big-time receivers will step up big time and their passing game will click with not as many dropped passes and/or inaccurate throws and Tra Carson will have another 100-yard game.

Vanderbilt’s offense is relatively nonthreatening, assuming they don’t decide to pound us with the run. If they do, the Aggies have proved that they can’t stop other teams from gashing us for big yardage. Vanderbilt can’t beat us passing with our huge pass rush. In other words, it’s anyone’s guess on this one . . . so make your final score prediction, sit back and watch. Our prediction; Texas A&M has too much talent not to win this, but it won’t be relaxing for fans of either team.

The Aggies had a much-needed “W “and so did Buddy, who won our Predict the Score contest with his prediction of 35-21. The Aggies had some impressive offensive stats, including rushing for more than 300 yards, the first time that’s happened since beating OU in the 2013 Cotton Bowl. And Kyler Murray had a beautiful debut as the Ags’ starting QB, staying poised, protecting the rock, hitting his receivers with some beautiful touch throws and rushing for more than 100 yards – as did Tra Carson; that’s two-100 yard rushers in a game!

Yes, we KNOW. Beating South Carolina is NOT the same as beating Bama or Ole Miss. And the defense still had trouble stopping the run. But Donovan Wilson had two picks, including one for a TD, the A&M safeties continued to impress, Dae Dae and Myles were their dominant selves and the defense has not stopped playing tough.

Copag Peek-Index Poker CardsWith the two-loss monkey off their backs, we can all look forward to next week as we watch the beginnings of a Wrecking Crew D and the evolution of a superstar QB for the fightin’ Texas Aggies.

Congratulation, Buddy! We will be sending you your well deserved prize of a professional set of Copag Peek-Index Poker Cards from our friendly staff at the Texas Poker Store.

We had a lot of final score predictions for this week’s big match-up between the Texas A&M Aggies and the Mississippi State Bulldogs, but our winner,  with the closest  prediction of 30-21, is an Old Ag himself, so he was not only happy to win this week’s prize of an NCAA Decorative Mirror, but also thrilled to have the opportunity to enjoy the Aggies incredibly well balanced win over MSU.

Aggies BTHO BulldogsThe Ags had an explosive offense in the first half, getting off to a two touchdown lead with some brilliant play-calling, a close-t0- perfect Kyle Allen, some mixing and matching with Tra Carson, Christian Kirk and company and Josh Reynolds making some monster catches. When they sputtered a bit in the second half, the defense looking formidable with Myles Garrett, Dae Dae Hall, Amani Watts, Donavon Wilson and too many other stand-outs to name, stepped up big time to hold Dak Prescott and crew to their lowest scoring game of the season.

After all was said and done, the Ags are now 5-0 on the season, 2-0 in the SEC and are going into their “bye” week ranked #9 in the AP poll. Which, of course, for all big-time football fans, sets up what has to be one of the biggest games of the season and in the country on October 17 – The Aggies vs. the Tide. That’s one no college football fan will want to miss. Congrats to the Aggies, and to Mr. Paul Marvin.

We’ll see you at the poker tables Mr. Marvin.
