    This weeks match up @ A&M

    here's how they line up.

    (ISU/A&M)

    total offense 55th/3rd
    Rushing offense 16th/33rd
    passing offense 97th/7th

    Total defense 82nd/98th
    rushing defense 62nd/78th
    passing defense 99th/108th

    Although we are riding a wave of momentum right now, I don't think we should be looking past A&M and talking about what bowl game we're gonna play in. last time i checked 5 wins doesn't get anybody into a bowl. and by just looking at the numbers, I think this game could be a heck of a lot more challenging then a lot of people are assuming. Even though we beat NU last week with both AA and Arob out, IMO that won't cut it in college station. we certainly aren't going to win with only 9 points.

    I don't think many people are looking past A&M, especially our players and coaching staff. Aside from the stats you posted, it's going to be even tougher considerring it's at College Station.

    Hard to look past a team that put a beat down on you on your own field the year before. We do have to remember our two offensive stars are injured and will not be 100%.

    Hopefully we find a way to get that 6th win somewhere else this year. We desperately need it.

    I don't think we should look past this game either, but Nebraska is better than A&M. Kansas and KSU are better than A&M and we had a chance to beat both in the final minutes. No looking past it, but we should expect to win this game.

    Seriously, aside from upsetting tech last week, who has A&M beat or even been in a game with? Their wins are against nobodies (again not counting last game) and their loses are lopsided. They are no better than Colorado

    I was just looking at TAMUs game-by-game stats for this year. Quite a turnaround in their running game between K-State and Texas Tech:

    @K-State: 23 carries for -13 yards
    @Texas Tech: 59 carries for 321 yards

    They lost by 5 to OSU. Similar to our loss to KU.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year olds life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Because meltdowns that are based off unrealistic expectations are annoying, and this usually happens to be the result of fans looking past teams.

    One thing about the A&M/Tech game which isn't getting a lot of press is some comments Leach made in the spring about his opinion of Sherman's passing game. A&M used that as bulletin board material.

    Hopefully, A&M will suffer a let down and we won't.
