Can I Get An Amen?
JFF is supposed to have a press conference this week and I am nervous. What if he talks like Jar Jar Binks?
Enjoyed the Mizzou game immensely. I thought it was a nice gesture to feature C. Mike on the first play (and in the first quarter in general.) He did not disappoint. Other seniors performed well, too. I got the feeling that they were on a mission.
The television color guy kept going on and on about the game being over, why was JFF still in...blah, blah, blah.... WHILE MIZZOU CONTINUED TO SCORE. And, this was in the first half! It is possible to lose the lead, dude, even a big one. We should know, since we have done it frequently. We have to score early and often because our very thin defense breaks down a bit in the second half.
Would JFF winning the Heisman be a good thing? Could it add so much pressure and raise expectations for next year so high that the team (and JFF) simply can't handle it? Perhaps, but I think we are there already in terms of expectations and pressure. I don't think winning the Heisman would change that at all. And of course, I think he should win it. GO JFF!
Many around here think that the Aggies will play the Horns in the Cotton Bowl, and many think that would be great. Why? The Horns aren't very good so I imagine that the Aggies would be expected to win. So, a win would be no big deal, because we should win. But what if we lose? I might just die. Is chronic fear of losing to UT a treatable condition?
What a great season this has been! Thanks to those wonderful, hardworking boys and the coaches for so many hours of joy. Gig 'em.
