So after digesting this past weekends game and having time to reflect, I noticed something once again while watching the post game field-rushing celebration at Kyle field. First I will say congrats to Tam for a hard fought win, they wanted it more and they got it, which leads me to this thought, and I know this is not a revelation, but Alabama has become THE iconic name in the world of college football and that was demonstrated last saturday night. While A&M basically sits at the bottom of the SEC west, you would have thought they had just won the National Championship. Never mind the fact that they had just lost two games in a row to SEC west members Arkie and MSU . Did the delirium of just beating Bama make them forget they have no shot at even winning the west, nevermind the SEC? Yes, yes it did, you see, other then a few teams, most care about one thing, and that is to dethrone the King and his subjects. When schedules are printed and practice begins in the SEC, one date is circled on each teams calendar..... Alabama. So even though this loss stings, the fact that we dropped only to #5 in the polls solidifies my point that coaches. players and pollsters, all know and respect the Bama factor. So again with all sincerity, congratulations to Texas A&M and enjoy this victory because that is all there is for you the rest of this year.
