Post 290 days from today we face Texas A & M at home...
If you’re not depressed enough already, we’re only 290 days away from facing Texas A & M at home...

Can you spell abbatoir? If not you’ll be able to on 8/31/19.

Screw the rest of this season, who cares?

I really, really, really wanted to make a good showing against the Aggies the next time we met - if not win.....

Call me a defeatist but Teis should call the game off, now. Oh, wait - he’s even too lazy to do that !!! Hell I’m willing to lose the revenue just to save us the embarrassment and damage to future recruiting....

Meh, losing to an SEC team doesn't bug me so much.

Bugging me is losing to UTSA, USA, Georgia Southern, App State, Louisiana, ULM, and (probably) Arkansas State & Troy.

Us not competing with A&M? No sweat. They spend as much on coaching salaries as our whole athletic budget (hyperbole folks, don't need a breakdown). But when we spend as much as, if not more than (all of them I mentioned if I am not mistaken) these teams, there's no reason we shouldn't AT LEAST be splitting the series with them over the last several years.

To date, I think we've only split the series with USA (but I think they have the edge on us).

That says those schools are doing more with less, and that's unacceptable.

A&M? I'll worry about them when we can keep up with our own conference mates. Until then, I don't care.

Which in that case, would make it forward or correct. "Asswards" would mean going towards the back, where the ass is located. Therefore, "backasswards" would mean the back/opposite of where the ass is, which would make it forward.

i don't think he forgot it was away i think he just forgot this was a bobcat board much like all the bobcats that forget we have a stadium on the weekends and much like all the other academies and Walmarts across the state outside of san marcos forget that we have sports apparel.

Really? This is what bothers you . . . An expected beat down/Big Pay Day by an SEC school ( totally expected by the way).

JMO, but what ought to bother you is:

3-9
2-10
2-10
3-7 currently

7 winning seasons in the last 30 years.

I used to complain about The University's wholehearted acceptance of mediocrity, but as the last 4 years have shown we're not even mediocre. Being mediocre again would be something akin to a return to "The Good Ol' Days."

And most damning, NO END in SIGHT. . . . .

An expected beat down by A&M, the least of this program's worries . . . IMO.

Records vs. those teams. Only counting since we've become FBS (so games like 2005 vs. GS not included):
UTSA - 0-3
USA - 2-2
GS - 0-3
App - 0-3
Louisiana - 0-6
ULM - 2-4
A-State - 1-4
Troy - 0-3

That's probably even worse than you thought. 5-28 vs. those teams you mentioned since 2013.

I'm actually just glad I kind of got right that I was correct on the USA record.

i find it humorous that folks refer to a&m as "an sec team" as if they are any different from when they were "a big 12 team" or "a swc team". switching conferences didn't give them magical powers.

Then by your logic, they should still refer to us as a Southland Team.

A&M plays in the SEC, ergo they ARE an SEC team. You ain’t gotta like it, but that’s who they are.
