How Bad Was Texas A@M Night Last Night?

I rank it up there with the Union Army's performance during the Battle of Bull Run.

Yesterday in my navite I thought A and M was going to win it. I knew Texas A&M was bad and overranked but goodness that was the most sloppy football I have seen in a long time. DON"T LET THE SCORE FOOL YOU. IT WAS FAR WORSE THAN IT APPEARS. It was the first time I got to watch to watch the two teams this year. Is Miami back? Maybe they are on the road. It is hard to use Texas A and M as a measuring stick. Every Day Should Be Saturday had this to this morning that sums it up(they have a funny vid too at the link):

We could pull out the condemnation of how despicably the Aggies played versus an amped-up but still not fearsome-looking Miami team–but why do that when paid announcers did it on the air last night for us? Among the comments made by Messrs. Flute and James:
They’re playing high school defense out there.”“3rd and 2, and you take a timeout, and they come back with a quarterback draw?”“Now that’s a man who’s fond of being sodomized on national television.”

That last one wasn’t said, actually. But it should have been. Jorvorskie Lane, mammothback, got 2 touches the entire game. The defense allowed rag-armed Kyle Wright to complete screens, short passes, and even a few underthrown deep balls for long completions. Somewhere, in a bunker amidst a pile of books on samurai warrior code, old African ceremonial masks, and a slew of Wendy’s drive-thru bags, Mike Leach is sitting with steepled fingers crafting his request to the AD for one more digit to be added to the Red Raider home score display.

Actually, we’ll need that extra digit pronto. Like, tomorrow. Texas Tech is about to play the 93rd ranked pass defense in the nation, Oklahoma State, who already faced a Leach-esque offense in Troy, who passed for 388 yards on the Cowboys. Again: they might need extra shiny digits all over that scoreboard, because Pirate School is about to put on its master’s class.

OK, I watched the game and it was bad, but to compare Texas A&M to the Yankee Army? That just goes to far;-)
