Whoop! The Aggies get a W…

I’m happy to report the Fightin’ Texas Aggies got their first win of the 2004 season. The bounce-back victory over Wyoming was a must for the Aggies desperately looking for Ws in a tough season. Last week the Ags were embarassed by a very good team, this week the Ags posted their first shutout since 2002 over an average Mountain West opponent.

The fact that the defense pitched a shutout made me real happy. Our defensive play has been horrible (sorry, I can’t sugar coat it any better then horrible…) and the defensive coaching/play-calling has been worse. Wyoming scored 42 last week and I was scared they might actually pick apart our young, undercoached D. It didn’t happen. The D made me proud and stepped-up and played a great game. I love a game when the Aggie D holds our opponent to negative rushing yards!

Reggie McNeil made some progress, but without Courtney Lewis playing I’d rather hold judgment on the offense. Yes, they looked a little better, but it was Wyoming.

I really wish I could make it down to College Station for this week’s game against Clemson. A big, nationally televised game, under the lights at Kyle Field. I’m really hope our defense continues to build on what they did last week and keeps our offense in this game.

    After Clemson’s embarrassing loss to Georgia Tech in the final few minutes last weekend, your Aggies might have a shot to beat them while they are down. Good luck and Go Gators!

    Hey Chad,

    I don’t want to get cocky after one Aggie win. I would have to say after watching Clemson’s first two games that the Aggies odds of beating them are a little better. Clemson squeaked by in their first game, and lost a game they should have one on Saturday.

    So, I’m not saying the Aggies will win, but it might not be an ass-kicking….
