Goodness Gracious Sakes Alive!

When, in the history of EVER, has A&M won a game like Saturday's game against Ole Miss?  JFF finally made those freshman mistakes that we all have been waiting for....ill-concieved desperation throws and  a scrumble ( a fumble while scrambling).   And yet.... the non-safety, the throw to Evans, the perfect throw to Swope, the touchdown run.  Wow!  NO! NO! NO!...YES! YES! YES!  We may not win them all, but we are in for some fun times.

And let's not fail to give credit to Malena, Swope (who somewhat redeemed himself by catching that perfectly thrown ball in the endzone) and my new favorite, Mike Evans.  That catch on 3rd and 18 from the 4 was clutch and spectacular. When is the last time we saw an Aggie receiver make that kind of catch?  And, he is a freshman.  Thank you, sweet baby Jesus.

As for the defense, I still have my concerns but given the fact that our offense gave the ball to Ole Miss 6 times, the defense played pretty well.  Two ints, one for a TD, and one to stop Ole Miss' final drive, and a BIG stop on 4th and inches to give us the ball and that last chance to score.  Thanks, too, to Ole Miss' Coach for that bonehead call.  Appreciate it, dude.

Ahead we have La Tech, which now looks tougher than I expected then LSU at home....maybe not as tough as I expected but even though LSU has no offense, it has an intimidating defense, including the brilliantly named BARKEVIOUS LEVON MINGO.  I kid you not. Then the fun begins with away games at Auburn (maybe), Mississippi State (maybe), and Alabama (no way in hell).  Prediction:  we win 2 of the next 5, putting us at 6-4 after the Bama game.


  1. Never in the history of ever. That's the last time the Ag's won agame like that.
    We are the team that gets 6 turnovers and lose. Wow.
    I vote that Jack and Emily's next son (or Ohfor's because it is time for Pa Cartwright to have another) be named Barkevious.

  2. 6 turnovers, Sounds as if JFF is getting some serious aggie spirit
    very exciting. Almost as inspiring as Pa Cartwright producing a Barkevious.

  3. Barkevious Levon Mingo - That's Asian right?
