As a nice change of pace, I would recommend anyone that still has last year's Aggie game on DVR to go back to it. It's really interesting to hear how much bootlicking everyone was doing with Diaz. and how truly dominant that defense was. You see some of the same issues that we criticize him for today, e.g. around the goal line, we didn't too many linemen in the down position then. Yet, last year, he was an uber genius, and this year, he's an utter buffoon.
I guess Blake Gideon was a whole lot better than we game him credit for.

The Aggies basically lost that game all by themselves. Fuller had been hurt all year and even the TexAg posters were dogging him. Byndom played probably his best game of his career that day against a receiver who was not at the top of his game.
Sherman was not smart with his play calling and Tannehill made a couple of terrible throws.
Then at the end we got the gift on the very minor helmet to helmet contact to bail out the drive. A&M was the better team but Texas won. I loved it. That stung them even more.
I took the helmet call as God with his burnt orange shades on saying to A&M, "Oh no you don't. You can go to Hell, I'm going with Texas".
