Little Story for you Ags! – Game notes Bama ans SHS

This time last week, our Fightin' Texas Aggies were east-bound and down, loaded up and truckin’. Saying, “we gonna do what they say can’t be done”.

Scooby-Doo and the Gang loaded up the Mystery Machine and invaded Tuscaloosa, where they sent shockwaves across the college football landscape and made a bunch of so-called “College Football Experts” look foolish.

Prior to the game, the Elephants honored Bear Bryant’s Junction Boys, in an attempt to hold off our onslaught by admitting that The Bear belonged to us first.

Unfortunately for the Red Laundry Detergent, K-Smooth, KK and the Johnny Football-led Fightin Texas Aggie Football Team were not having any of that.  They announced that the Aggies mean business and Beat the Hell outta Alabama.

This week, our BCS #8-ranked Fightin' Texas Aggies face off against a second National Championship Game Participant in back-to-back weeks, and welcome our brothers from the Huntsville micropolitan area, the FCS #3-ranked Bearkats of Sam Houston State, into Kyle Field for our 11th meeting.

The Aggies hold a 10-0 advantage in the series, and intend to make it 11-0.  What the heck is a “Bearkat” anyway?  Is it a Kinkajou or maybe a Binturong? Is it a cross between a grizzly and a tiger?  Is it the cousin of a Liger, the mix between a lion and a tiger that is bred for its skills in magic?  I dunno.

Anyway, this is the 10th trip to Aggieland for the Bearkats, who were formerly known as “The Normals”.  I guess that prior to 1923, the nice, future prison guards over in Huntsville didn’t want to be associated with anything weird. <cough>Austin<cough>

Last week, the Fighting Normals exorcized the Demons of Northwestern State and eked out a 52-17 victory, while the Aggies did what the Fightin’ Mad Hatters were unable to do and knee-capped the defending National Champions…in their own house.

Come "Maroon Out" Tailgaters for the SAM HOUSTON STATE Game this Saturday @ 2:30!

This will be our home for watching parties and more. Please remember to add to the scholarship donation "Fish Bowl"!
