I'm an OU fan, and I think they will but that remains to be seen.

CAN'T wait for football to start! May the best team win it all my friends!

The games that people got fired up for were the ones against the top teams, whomever they happened to be---while I was there it was usually Alabama.

The only reason there's been more success in pushing Arkasnas/LSU as a rivalry in recent years is because LSU has been a top team.

LOL. Libsk, yeh, in actuality I will miss A&M.

As the other fellas on here will tell you, you can't take seriously hardly anything I say/write. I just like ribbin' the Ags a bit, but nothing like the enjoyment I get from messing with those nefarious Burnt Orange Bevos! Eh, ScoPro?

A&M = Such a great fanbase....I think the Aggies will give LSU a run for their money for "Nuttiest Fans in the Conference" award. Get ready SEC!!!

I live in Florida, I am not a big SEC fan but since it is on TV and we are inundated with it, I cannot help but notice.
I hate Texas A&M (my ex wife and her father both went there...nuff said)

But the sad thing I heard is verne Lunquist is coming back for yet another year of his crappy clueless commentating. I watched every game he called last year with the mute button on.
Maybe he could leave the SEC and go....I dunno......call firewalking races in hell or something?

Verne Lunquist used to be a local TV sportscaster in Austin decades ago.

Please keep him.

An Onion article about A&M that could come true:
