And tech fans are THE WORST fans in the country. Don't think it will be hard for Kingsbury to stay at A&M.

All this talk of SEC bias, if Teo were on a few SEC teams, he wouldn't be the best defensive player on the team. The media tried to make a story out of his tragedy. Too bad. He seems like a genuine, nice guy. He's good, not great. Quite a few better defenders out there, IMO. I still think they're going to screw Johnny and give Teo the trophy. And when they do, all the luster and history that surround the Heisman will be gone forever.

I'm with Carter on this one. Miss St has beaten no one of relevance. Talent, but no team.

Packers- That was the same number I had, 7. I sure didn't think we'd go undefeated on the road. Thanks!

What I see being the most important factor in the A&M/OU game is whether or not the Aggies can get consistent pressure on Jones early. He has shown to be a little foot happy when he gets hit early and often. As a result, he doesn't get his feet set right to pass and his completion percentage goes way down. I believe A&M will be able to run the ball quite effectively, opening up the play action pass. OU has given up a ton on the ground in a pass happy conference. All the talk surrounding A&M has been about Manziel and the offense, deservedly so. The Aggie defense will be the key to them covering this game, IMO. Just my two cents, but I've been wrong before.
Best of Luck to everyone and have a Merry Christmas!

Carter-I appreciate your picks and though, we don't always agree, I thank you for the effort you put into your capping. As a Texas A&M alum, I am curious as to what your thoughts are on the A&M/OU bowl game. Being a former Big 12 guy, I've watched a lot of their games this year and I don't see this as being close, at all. Of course, my view could be considered completely one-sided being an Aggie homer, hence the question. I appreciate your response in advance. Thanks for your time and BOL during the bowl season!

A great line is A&M-4.5. And A&M/OU over 71. I don't think this game will be close by the 4th qtr.

I heard that OU wasn't allowed to go without OSU. If I remember correctly the SEC didn't want OSU, so OU and OSU went towards the PAC 10. I could be wrong. This is just what I think I remember.

As far as the LHN goes, I believe it was a great opportunity for texas to take. I dont blame them a bit. ESPN looks like idiots, but texas still cashes the checks. I don't understand why they don't offer the games featured on LHN on pay per view to people that still don't get the network. I think they're losing millions by being so hard headed. Texas A&M was offered a deal by texas before LHN, it was a network shared by the horns and the Aggies. The revenue was supposed to be 65-35% in the horns favor and the Aggies told them no thanks.

Personally, I just hope we can put aside this anger/jealousy and get the rivalry going again. Texas A&M had bad years and texas has bad years, but the rivalry is usually a great game. Hatred brings out the best in football. That's just what I believe, but I've been wrong before.

O'Brien definitely deserved the honor. Congrats to him and PSU. This is from an Aggie, we need PSU to be relevant for college football to be at it's pinnacle!

I'm with Shark, here. ND is getting WAY too much credit off the OU victory. It was a nice win, not dominant, though. ND has a good team. Their schedule is pretty weak this year. IMO a strong offensive team with an adequate defense would beat them by 3 tds(Texas A&M, Oregon, Georgia). I've been wrong before.

Texas A&M left for a myriad of reasons, but for the most part, to remove itself from the shadow of the horns. I'm an Aggie homer, no doubt about it. The LHN was kind of like the final straw. Their rule over the big XII-II-II+II is obsolete. They tell the conference what's going to happen and everyone else( yes, you too, OU) gets in line and abides. The Aggies are making more, but, the most important thing is being able to tell a potential recruit that we have some different to offer than tu. It was a great move and we will never look back. And I agree, playing texas in The Cotton Bowl would be great for Aggie pride, but the AD at texas has already made it clear that they will not accept an invitation to play in a bowl against Texas A&M. Too bad. I'd like to see the Aggies vs. Ducks, myself.

A&M destroys a lifeless Mizzu. Senior Day, 3 losses in a row to the Tigers, and look for the team to help Manziel win the Heisman. BOL! Everyone has a bad evening. Keep your head up!

I like your thinking, Thorpe. I'd add that Texas A&M hasn't beaten Mizzu in 3 yrs and they're trying to win a Heisman Trophy for their qb.

There it is, again. A lot of teams have lost to 2 of the top 3 teams. Who has ou beaten? Same story with these guys everytime.

I hope, for clarity on this, that Texas A&M does play tu in the Cotton Bowl. Then, and probably only then, will some of you admit that this is a COMPLETELY different Aggie squa than in previous years.
IMO the final would read:
Texas A&M 58
tu 10

AP has La Tech#20. Their only loss is to #10 Texas A&M. So, by your line of thinking with ou, La Tech should be where? 11th? Can't just lose to top ranked teams, you have to beat some of them, too.
