I have a few hours to kill and found this gem.
Now they can saw their own off with that schedule.
didn't that make it even harder for a&m to get bowl eligible?
McNeese State and S. Car. St. are both FBS schools, so a&m can only count one of them, assuming they win both, toward their 6 wins needed for a bowl, correct?
I just find the fact that other non Big-12 D-1 texas schools are asking for a return game in order to schedule them is hilarious. If you read the thread they're upset that no UT system schools won't schedule them because according to them UT has told them not to. They wanted out and now are crying about having to suffer the consequences. SECEDE.

I wonder if the aggies will be favored?
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
who is texas a&m?
It is one of a number of agriculture and mechanical schools in the state of Texas. Odd group really, recently known for a couple of women's sports championships, but with male cheerleaders (unfortunately, not the most disturbing role reversal going on down there). Somewhat of an embarrassment to the conference when on TV, but in the process of packing up to go where their customs and "brand" are more accepted--rural appalachia. Some of the most esteemed students still dress in overalls and spend their time debating old versus new army when they are not a military academy at all. Nothing to see really.

Like they are going to get 6 wins.
As an FYI Aggies have dropped Mcneese State and added LA Tech to the schedule for Thursday 8/30.
They still have one more OOC to schedule and I am sure it will be a patsy.
Update: FSU reached out to A&M and as you'd guess A&M said no.
That LA Tech game might be tricky in Shreveport. Bulldogs bring back a ton of starters I'd thought. Solid viewing on the opening Thursday regardless.
Should the aggy crowds chant FCS FCS instead of SEC SEC next year?
Very good. +1
Aggie jokes really do write themselves.
did they really turn down FSU? is that for real??
Tech fans would rather it be in Ruston as they could get a more home friendly crowd. There's bad blood there. Tech had ATM on the ropes several times in Shreveport years ago having multiple drives end on downs inside the Aggie 5 yard line, and the ever classy Ags threw a TD pass with less than two minutes to go to pad the scoreboard. Tech won't be an easy out.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Chili you just brought a smile to my face that I can't wipe off. +1 on each of your posts above. +1 Scharnell and +1 Bobby and some others.
Anybody that posts good stuff about the insufferable Aglets should get pluses, because you know the dozen or more Ags that monitor us here for little nuggets to take back to Texags will be downvoting anything that is disparaging to their miserable fanbase. God this is hilarious. Scheduling 2 FCS schools is so Frannie, lame and desparate. It's better to get to 6 wins, even of one of them doesn't count than to go the likely 5-7 without those two FBS games. Plus, when they add in the win from the Maroon & White game that gets them to 7-6 with no bowl game, but a winning season.
By the way, Vanderbilt just might be better than Aggy. The bottom feeders are MSU, Ole Miss, Mizzou, and Aggy. Their top end is going to be 9-3 plus a bowl, but that's not happening in 2012.

FBS=BCS... McNeese St. = FCS!
