Texas A&M vs. Iowa State

The Aggies got the first conference win of the season yesterday by defeating Iowa State by a score of 49-35. I wasn't able to watch the game but from what I've read, it appears that quarterback Jerrod Johnson had a great game. His numbers bode well for the future of the Aggies under Coach Mike Sherman's new system. I would still like to see the Ags win a few more games this year, but will be satisfied if they learn what they are capable of as players.

LOST Season 5 Promo

It's really just a recap of the end of Season 4 with a little tease at Season 5, but I still got goosebumps!

Texas A&M vs. Texas Tech

The Aggies played host to Texas Tech and gave them a good game but still lost by a score of 43-25. The score makes the game seem much more one sided than it actually was. The Aggies lead several times during the game including at halftime. Unfortunatley, the Red Raiders made better halftime adjustments and took advantage of opportunities to go into the final minutes of the game leading 36-25. Knowing that they would not be allowed to tear down the goal post after the win, the Red Raiders decided to humilate the Aggies by scoring one more grandstanding touchdown with only seconds left in the game. Kudos go to Mike Leach on a decision to challenge the missed touchdown by the Red Raiders in the final minute of the game knowing full well that they would be able to put it in the endzone on their next play. You stay classy Texas Tech! The Ags played great today against a top 10 team but they lost and as far as I'm concerned, there are no moral victories. It sucks to keep losing, but maybe this will help the players grow as a team.

Texas A&M vs. Kansas State

Again I am a few days late on this but I have as usual been very busy with work on game day as well as several social functions Saturday and Sunday. By now anyone who cares knows that the Aggies were defeated at home by Kansas State by a score of 44-30. I again listened to most of the game on the radio while working and although the Aggies put up some great stats in a variety of aspects of the game, they couldn't add the most important, the score, when they needed to. It was especially disappointing when the Aggies took the ball all the way to the K-State 2-yard line and could not score on two attempts. This ends the winning streak against K-State streak that started with the upset in the Big XII Championship ten years ago. I'm not sure what the Aggies need to do but the really need to start working on it as the rest of the schedule will not get any easier.

Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma State

The Aggies lost their first Big XII game of the year to Oklahoma State by a score of 56-28. I didn't see or hear anything about it until much later in the evening on Saturday night because Roxi and I were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. I am not a fair weather fan but I'm afraid this season is not going to end well for the Aggies.
