    hard to beat somebody when you can't get them to play you.

    Just like Auburn, until we can show that we can beat A&M, you have to like A&M. We keep signing up and showing up and they keep beating us. At least with Auburn, we at least have one tie and that was about 20 years ago. The rest are all loses and with A&M, it's just all loses if my memory is correct.

    The chance that we'll get to rectify that situation is small though...we concentrate more on big money attention games. Which is good. No one on ESPN wants to watch that particular instate rivalry except Dawg and Wave fans. It's not exactly the Iron Bowl.

    Tulane may have won the battles on the field, but we will win the war when Green Wave football is a thing of the past...

    It already pretty much is...and will be if we ever meet them again.

    But like I said, I'd rather continue to play the big dogs.

    And the Iron Bowl wasn't exactly the Iron Bowl before it was PLAYED and BECAME the Iron Bowl.

    I'm not advocating playing Toolame and having them be a rival, but we shouldn't blow it off either.


    As for the highlighted line above, that mentality along with many other factors is the main reason that the I-Bowl didn't take us in 97 when we went 9-2 and should have whipped us some tigger ass instead of the boring rematch against Notre Lame. If you make the games GOOD and it's with good teams, the TV will FOLLOW. They don't exactly drool over the Kansas/Penn St/aTm vs TECH matchups either.

    Very true...we shouldn't pander to the TV moguls. Make them come to us. Good point.

    No such thing as a "Big 12" or "WAC" crew now with the crews for Big 12 and WAC games being mixed under the CFO umbrella along with other conference crew members. Cooper Castleberry (veteran former Big 12 ref from Lufkin) was the ref for our Hawai'i home game last year.

    Those guys still know where their bread is buttered.

    They will protect their AQ clients first.

    Maybe so, but with the mixed crew setup you wouldn't see more than 2-3 former Big 12 officials mixed with former WAC, MWC, and CUSA (and possibly others) in the crew. That's a far sight better than a full 7-man crew who exclusively work Big 12 games. At least the chance of an outright hosing like the infamous Little Rock fiasco should be reduced.

    If it's outright hos you're looking for --

    Drive north from Dubach for about 10 minutes.

    Re: vs. Texas A&M

    aTm will probably win 9 games, at least, and get a nice bowl, the Alamo Bowl, or something, maybe the Cotton Bowl. They are a lot like Auburn was last year.

    The Dawgs will NOT go undefeated this year...sorry to say. So, given that certainty, I would predict that aTm will be one on the "L" side. Boazy will be another.

    Other than those, home games to USM and Navy represent a HUGE opportunity to garner a couple of quality wins. I hope we'll run the table at home this year...oh and that silly "road" game in S'port too, and play no worse than .500 in the WAC on the road. We should be bowling, if we can do that.

    Oh...not to say I don't want to beat aTm or Boazy, but realistically, on the road, well, you know...

    Now I'm not so sure. They went 6-7 last year and had some pretty bad games. They have the same problems in the spread that Texas and Florida have: fast quarterbacks and no receivers to match. Therefore, the QBs are forced to rely on their legs. Hence the 100+ yds each QB scored in the Texas-Texas A&M game.
    :bigcry:

    This is hilarious.
    A&M has a sure-fire 1st round draft pick at WR (Jeff Fuller) that missed 5 games with a broken leg last year along with what is probably their best and deepest corps of receivers in the last 15 years.
    FYI, Johnson threw for over 300 yards in that Texas game last year.

    We'll have to defend the pass....just a tad.
