Life got crazy so posts got neglected.....but whoa, we're in a totally different world now than we were when I last posted.
10/22 Ags 33 at ISU 17
Ags won but it was much closer than it should have been against one of the worst teams in the conference. C-Mike ran for 142 yards and Cyrus added 125 yards on the ground while Jeff Fuller had his best game of the season with 75 yards and a TD on 7 catches.
10/29 Ags 31 v. MU 38 (OT)
We were lucky to get this one to overtime as Mizzou missed a FG as time expired in regulation. Of course, we blew another double-digit 4th quarter lead to get to that point. Sherman lost me in this one - completely inexcusable.
11/5 Ags 25 at OU 41
We played really poorly in the first half but somehow went into the intermission tied up at 13 with the #9 ranked Sooners. Then OU blew the doors off scoring 28 unanswered points in the third quarter. It was ugly. The highlight was Ryan Swope's 148 yards and TD on 13 receptions - he is on pace to break all three big single season receiving records (receptions, yards, & TDs). Oh yeah, C-Mike tore his ACL and is out for the year.
11/12 Ags 50 at K-State 53 (3OT)
As much as I felt like we should have won the Mizzou game....and even after everything I've seen this season....I really thought we'd beat #14 KSU. Apparently, I forgot that we blow double-digit fourth quarter leads....don't worry - the team didn't. Four of our five losses we've coughed up DOUBLE DIGIT FOURTH QUARTER LEADS!?! It was the drops by our TEs and WRs that did us in this time. Whether it was an early walk-in TD, key first downs down the stretch, or a triple overtime 2-point conversion.....we dropped'em. Don't fear, we're heading into flu season and our WRs don't need to get their shots because they can't catch anything. Thank goodness for Cyrus - I love this kid - he ran for 218 yards and 2 TDs.
What a complete mess this season has turned into. All of the momentum we had coming off of last season, and the recruiting campaign, and pre-season accolades, and then the SEC announcement.....it's all gone. We flushed it down the toilet.
We have Kansas, the worst team in the conference, at home this weekend before turning around for the biggest Lonestar Showdown of all time....the last one.
Frankly, at this point, I don't care what happens against KU - Sherman needs to start getting the team ready for texas - just game plan for them from today until Thanksgiving. We HAVE to beat texas.
