“We’re gonna talk about us, and not Alabama.”

If you don’t read anything else this week, make sure you read this Bruce Feldman piece about Texas A&M’s preparation for last Saturday’s game of the century.  It’s as good as that kind of work gets.

I can’t imagine that many programs that would give the national media that kind of access leading up to a huge game.  How confident a coach do you think Kevin Sumlin is?

  1. You know it makes it hard when you are driving around Atlanta on a Saturday and damn ALABAMA IS ALL OVER the freakin radio.


    • Yep, 92.9 is the flagship Alabama station. Frontrunners can tune in now. Kinda reminded me when Florida was good and 680 broadcast their games for a year. I imagined the stopped because of the backlash. I certainly was pissed.


      • I am still so angry when I see a GEORGIA tag with Auburn, AL., Tn, Florida, and now SC>. I checked into to it….Those fans who live in GEORGIA have to pay the most for their Vanity!

      How many sports talk stations are in Atlanta now?

      At least three on AM and two on FM…


  2. “That a typo on the linebacker?” asks Jeff Banks, the Aggies’ first-year special teams coordinator and tight ends coach. “6-6, 252? What the (heck) is that? We got (A&M linebacker Steven) Jenkins coming in at 209.”

    I laughed at this.

      Seriously, how did they not recruit any bigger kids at ‘backer?
      JHC is at least 209 and he’s playing safety. They don’t even have a 230 lb linebacker on the roster per that article, whereas a lot of us felt ‘Tree was weak against the run because at 230 he was undersized.
