Money isn’t an object to them, everything is bigger in Texas, including building a dome in a week ??!

They might see rain as an advantage ??

I say we beat them by 20 and show our true colors this week!

Buses for players & coaches


Posted: Sep 3, 2018 11:58 AM
 

Does anyone know who arranged for the buses at Texas A&M back in 2004? If my memory serves me correctly those buses did not have AC. Did our athletic department at the time outsource that decision to some staffer at aTm?

In my brief Tigernet search for an article from 2004, I could not find anything to support my memory.
I don't think heat on buses was the main contributor to the loss that day, but I'm sure it was one of the factors.


Do we have buses with AC lined up to transport our guys this year?

No doubt this will be a different matchup for the Tigers. The will play a bigger, faster, stronger team. But this what you want as a measuring stick.
Beating a team like Furman was suppose to be done like it was.
Offensive line play needs to show it can open holes and creases for the running backs.
Wide receivers hopefully will block better.
Defensive backs need to continue tight coverage but know where the ball is.
Simply put the Tigers need to prove who they are and the time is now.

Swinney is 4-4the last eight years against FSU.... Didn't CDS say after the Winston Jamis game that if the two teams meet 10 times, it would be half and half....
The man can see the future


Speaking of Nick Saban

I am so sick of that SoB! In the last few weeks, I've been dying to see anything on TV about college football as I've been so excited for this season. But I swear I could not watch any CFB talk show that wasn't at least 3/4 about Nick Saban. That ###### is on my last nerve. Somebody beat Alabama and shut the talking heads (esp. Paul Finebomb) up about Nick Saban. Please!!

Let's leave that to us in January. The bigger they are the harder we going to make them fall


I've watched A&M's opening game.....

.....and I'm thouroughly unimpressed.

Like TX, FSU, Miami and Michigan - this is another team that's riding the ESPN game-day atmosphere on Clemson's coat tail.

Why?

On their opening weekend, A&M beat up on a team that went 4-7 last year. They (A&M) ran 500+ yards of offense on the ground, 240 of those yards from one running back that is relatively unknown. That running back isn't going through our front 4, the QB is about as accurate as KB2 and the opposing team STILL ran through the (A&M) line a to sack the QB twice.

There WILL be 105K rabid A&M fans there - and this will be the largest non-conference opponent to EVER step foot on KYLE field. You can bet the place will be crazy......but......so was Louisville last year (CU/UL had largest crown in UL history) - so were the playoffs the last THREE years. I feel Clemson will be ready once they settle down - which may take a few series. Once they hit stride, the 12th man will be rendered obsolete.

I'm no gambler but I'd wager that with a new coach, a new stance on how A&M operates, a recent history of mediocrity, a par to sub-par QB, one true offensive weapon and this game being nationally televised (Clemson's starters are more than used to that), that A&M chokes.

I'm going with Clemson by 3 touchdowns. Jimbo WILL rebuild this team. It just won't be this year.

Seems like most of the Clemson blogs expect a Clemson win:
