Aggies have KU at home next week, then road games against OU and Missouri. 2-1 on that stretch will set us up for a nice T+1 showdown in College Station. After all this frustration, it would be amazing (and yes, unlikely) to go 9-3 on the season, and possibly win the South.

First of all, congratulations to the Texas Tech defense, who shut down the A&M offense for about 52 minutes, and kept feeding the ball back to Harrell and Crabtree, fueling the Red Raider Rout of A&M this afternoon.
Second of all, I am completely disgusted and finished with Coach Fran and his pitiful, painful outings week in and week out. I know we are 5-2, and 2-1 in conference, but I am done with Fran, and Fran is done at A&M. I would rather cut bait now, and just finish the year with an interim coach.
Blake, I am sorry about your carpet, and the permanent indentation that Rooster perch must be making there. Congratulations, and good night.
A special thanks to the Corps for boring us to tears, year after year, with the same old crap. The whole "Summer in Paris" routine is old and tired at this point. The least y'all could do is throw in a couple of dancing sheep to break up the monotony.
As usual, the Aggies are a big underdog traveling to Lubbock. The Tech fans are already lathered up, and the local convenience stores are all out of tortillas and Duracells. Everyone is expecting Tech to beat up on poor Aggy again, but I say "not so fast". A&M is coming to play, and are armed with a Jorvorskie Lane guarantee, an embattled coach, and tremendous team unity. These guys are winners. This team that won in Austin last Thanksgiving, are certainly capable of a big win in Lubbock. The matchups may heavily favor Tech, but it's not as disparate as it has been in 2003 and 2005. On top of that, A&M has already beaten a team that Tech couldn't handle. OSU had three backs rush for over 100 yards. If the Red Carpet defense couldn't stop Okie Lite, then they will have trouble with McGee, Lane, and Goodson on the ground-----big trouble.
Finally, I had a strange dream this week that Graham Harrell had to play the game with a colostomy bag (not as the football, but actually attached to his body). This should be a sign that Harrell will have a sub-par game, or perhaps that the Aggies will "sack the shit out of him".
All of this put together, gives me all I need to project an Aggie victory in Lubbock this afternoon, and a triumphant return of the Rooster to his rightful throne in Dallas.
What is guaranteed, is that this will be a great game, and a fun weekend, and one that I wish I didn't have to miss it. I will carry a flask in my boot today, as a tribute, and I already have October 18, 2008 circled in blood on my calendar.

I was never a math major, but the numbers don't seem to add up....especially when his own wife and daughter received it for free. Maybe the new A&M motto should be: "Aggy Math - From The Outside Looking In You Can't Understand It"

COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M running back Jorvorskie Lane said Tuesday that he doesn’t care if the Aggies haven’t won at Texas Tech since 1993.
“We’re going to win in 2007,” Lane said. “That’s a guarantee. I promise you.”
Asked what coach Dennis Franchione – who had already spoken at the weekly press conference – might think of such a bold prediction, Lane shrugged.
“I’m a man,” he said. “ I can say what I want to say.”
The Aggies and Red Raiders play 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Tech has won by a combined 70 points in Franchione’s two previous trips to Lubbock as A&M coach. Such a fact didn’t faze Lane.
“Nothing can break us,” he said.
Leach said he got a flat tire and tried to fill it with enough air to make it to his destination, but "it proceeded to run out of air. I took a routine turn, then went into a slide, so then it broke the arm."I have two questions about this incident:
- How much had Leach had to drink prior to jumping on his bike?
- Is this an omen for the Pirates?

I have full confidence and expectation that the show will go on, and that Blake and Teddy-K will effectively carry the torch with me there only in spirit. When the Aggies win, Teddy-K can accept the Rooster on my behalf, and return Him to His rightful perch in Dallas.
Long live the Rooster, and Gig 'Em Aggies!!!!!
