I know the Alabama game was a long time ago and all, but it was 31-0 before we scored a single point.
Cotton Bowl Open Thread
Sorry for that omission, I meant to indicate that and got caught up in my comment.
...they've been one of those "almost" programs for awhile. Like how Florida was before Spurrier started coaching there. Now they've got a different coach, a QB that so far looks like he's light years beyond the skill of the guy they just lost to the first round of the NFL draft, and as crazy as it sounds, playing in the ESS EEE SEE has elevated their preparation for what they're seeing tonight.
Hey, I thought they were out of their minds...they blew what, a 20-point lead in the 2nd half last year to a WEAK Texas Longhorns team and then they decide they're putting on the big boy pants moving over to the same DIVISION (nevermind conference) as Alabama and LSU? And they lose two (very close) conference games their first year, whip Saban in Tuscaloosa, and are showing just how much further behind they've left their old conference behind by pushing Oklahoma around in the Cotton Bowl.
Think about Auburn...they were a mediocre (at best) team before sCam Newton showed up and won every game he played. Two years after he left they're not even bowl-eligible and their coach is fired. There are players on this year's team who have National Championship rings, fergodsake.
College football...sometimes it's a strange game.
And won a big bowl game in the first year of their new coach from a mid major.
Last year Michigan was 11-2, 2nd in their division, and won a big bowl game in the first year of their new coach from a mid major.
What a touch. Being able to throw like that, too? Just ain't fair.
Wow, just Wow.
LOL at anyone comparing manziel to tate forcier, this guy has earned the right to be cocky, did you just see that perfect throw? Even good forcier probably never makes that throw.
Probably not. Hence the...he's a lot better. I was referencing the laisse fair style and cocky shit head grin
Mansfield has a great offensive line. He has tons of time to throw.
Devin Gardner > Landry jones
A&M flashing that ESS EEE CEE Defense and a lot of Manziel offense too.
100% chance the aTm fans chant SEC SEC SEC
I guess at this point Stoops and the rest of the big twelve(ish) are thinking it's a good thing A&M left the conference.The SEC is praying that A&M dont pick up a ton of recruits and depth after the Flordia debalce and this game.
Manziel's over 200 yards rushing and they're up by TD's with less than 5:00 to play. Sit him before he gets hurt on a flukey pointless play.
run that was by Johnny and he still avoided getting clobbered despite running up the gut and over to the sideline
the kid is just a natural
is a damn good team and they just got whooped
why didn't you try and help recruit Johnny to AA?
At 229 yards rushing and 287 yards passing out of his team's 633 yards of total offense, Manziel's arm and legs are responsible insome fashion for about 80% of the Aggie's yards.
As it stands, this game will end with 1,031 yards of total offense from both teams combined, meaning Johnny Football was almost literally half this offense in the game. Wow.
And then consider the times when Denard's offensive numbers actually exceeded Michigan's total offensive stats for certain games during his career in Ann Arbor (I know it's happened more than once, most recently this past year against the USAFA).
The perspective is that Johnny Football is most of A&M's offense, but there have been times when Denard was all of Michigan's. Which is one of many reasons I will always love Denard.
I can't stand watching them play because of their fight song - THE MOST ANNOYING FIGHT SONG EVER!
It is the only song their band knows, and they play it anytime they move the ball at least an inch.
I usually have to watch their games on mute, but Johnny shut them up last night. It was funny to listen to them struggle to find something positive to play for.
I honestly don't know how the fans, players & even the band members don't bash their own heads in with a pipe by the second quarter each game.
