“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?

    • 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.

      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.
