A&M lost defensive personnel now in the NFL - their defense is not as good as last year.

Don't be a hater. Enjoy the entertainment.
Please!!! A&m got gashed by Rice and SAM HOUSTON STATE, their defense is trash.

So much jealousy and hate. Did not tamu have some players coming back from suspension? Are college football teams different every week particularly this early in the season? Dont teams get hyped up and play differently depending on their opponent? Aren't you just a boring hater?

Btw, why did Bama get the ball on the 25yard line after a touchback?? Is this a rule change I missed or was there some kind of penalty??

I know - that's why I said they are not as good as last year.

FYI - Sam Houston St. was in the finals in the FCS last year. They ain't no slouch.

A&M has some challenges on defense. But Alabama? Do you think they don't play defense? Most points scored against them since 2003.

I didn't expect a shootout like we had. Alabama looks like a more mature and experienced team. A&M couldn't make big plays often enough on defense and of course turnovers were huge. McCarron played very well.

I'm happy to see Manziel show again what he can do - his throws were terrific today except for the scramble hail mary that worked.

I think either of these two teams would beat anyone except perhaps Oregon.

So?
1. Bama
2. aTm
2. Oregon

Lmao. Bama and aTm are both going to lose multiple games this year. Well, maybe Bama only drops one. Their schedule is beyond cupcake.

Lol, Manziel damn near had 600 yards of total offense by himself. Mike Evans had 274 receiving yards. Anybody who thinks that's good defense definitely doesn't know football.

Interesting. Go back to any previous "games of the century" involving Alabama usually against LSU and random know it all outsiders itch and complain that it is field goal battle, boring and no offense because they can never give any credit to the stifling defense that is indicative of the best SEC teams. Now you get a game with Johnny Tecmo Bowl and Alabama matching them blow for blow and...haters still hate.
