So LSU, which basically is on par offensively with Florida, raked Texas A&M’s defense with 491 yards last night. Nice. (I said it before and I’ll say it again – if Florida had drawn TAMU instead of Alabama on the schedule this year, Boom would still be gainfully employed at Florida for another season.)
For all the talk about how the two Big 12 teams came in and showed the big, bad SEC they belonged, TAMU has really settled in nicely to a mediocre existence. The Aggies are the late-60s Jaguar XKE of the conference, flashy looking, fun to drive, providing the occasional thrill, but ultimately in the shop more than on the road. Meanwhile, Missouri is more like a V-8 Lexus sedan, nothing special to look at, but comfortable and reliable. Oh, yeah, and the Tigers can play a little defense. Maybe that still matters these days.
That being said, Mizzou needs to go down today. So here’s my promise: Hogs win and I’ll lay off calling Bret Bielema “Bert” for the next year. Karma, y’all.
