The Aggies vs SMU: Adam’s predictions

June Jones and the SMU Mustangs are coming down from Dallas to face The Fightin’ Texas Aggies Sunday night 6:30 pm.  The game will be televised on Fox Sports Houston, locally on the radio on 1620am, and the Whole Candy Crew, myself included will be on hand for our season opener.  I’ve seen all kinds of crazy predictions this week, the sunshine pumpers expect us to win 66-8 like we did in 2005, the haters and pot bangers say we barely scrape by in a shoot out 48-42, and the moderate fortune tellers are betting with Vegas picking us to win 35-20.

Here’s how I see it going down on Sunday night.  We bring in a lot of senior and veteran leadership, but that doesn’t stop us from making an early special teams mistake.  SMU is going to go up by a touchdown early, as a result of a turnover(probably a special teams mistake or a short kickoff.)  Tannehill and the Aggie offense will probably go on a short 6 play scripted conservative drive, and stall out and be forced to punt.  SMU rolls out their offense led by Kyle Padron, he threw for 31 TDS 14 INTs and 3800 yards last year (most of that in Conference USA games)  but the SMU offense is similar to the Mike Leach gimmick offense, short passes, little wide recievers finding holes in the zones, or setting picks to take out defensive backs in man coverage to get receivers open, and they will find enough open receivers to mount another scoring drive.  Taking a 2 touchdown lead on us in the first quarter. By now the old blue and gray haired alumni will be shouting at Coach Sherman to just quit and go back to New England, The big money in the suites will start sending their board of regents connections nasty emails about how they’re not making another donation, and the student section will hump it and choke back the cries of “here we go again.”  While all that is happening Coach Sherman is down on the field, CALM AND COOL  as can be.  His men have been chomping at the bit to hit someone in another color uniform since the Maroon and White game, and now that they have, they’ve been popped in the mouth and they taste blood, it maybe their own, but it’s still blood and it’s all it takes to get them up and focused.  Ensuing Kickoff, Cyrus Gray or Coryell Judie is gonna take a short kick all the way back for a quick 6.  SMU falters on their next drive, Jerrod-Eddie gets his first sack on the season, and the Aggies have the ball back.  Tannehill hits his stride, catching a wide open Ryan Swope for our next score.  Tim DeRuyter gets after his veterans and they in turn get the younger guys in position, on some plays we have 5 DBs in the game, but they get it done and hold SMU scoreless for the rest of the 1 half, while Cyrus, Christine, and Mister Jones run the ball up and down the field on SMU’s young and undersized Defensive line.

By the 2nd half, the Ponies are a broken team, down 34-14, it’s hot on Kyle Field, and their heads are down and they just want to go back to Dallas, and play the scrubs in Conf-USA. Tannehill hands off to the backs through most of the 3rd Quarter, every now and then hitting one of his receivers on a play action pass that goes for big gains.  It’s late, the gray hairs in the West side stands are snoozing in their seats, while the student section is chanting Wrecking Crew, when finally in the 4th quarter the Aggies put in Jameill Showers.  He gets some face time, handing off to Cyrus, throwing some short completions but more importantly, playing with the 1st team offense.  By now we are up 42-21 and cruise on to win it 45-14 adding a late (very short range field goal)

Aggies win, Coach Sherman puts all the praise on his “Senior Leaders”, and says “we learned some things about ourselves tonight, made some mental mistakes and we definitely have some areas to improve on.  Coaching at this level is still teaching, tonight we learned some lessons.  Now we’ve got 13 days to get prepared for the Vandals.”

There’s my objective prediction for the game, after a shaky start, the Ags win 45-21…(of course, I would love to watch us march out and stomp a mudhole in the Ponies, a 77-0 beat down Kyle field style)

Adam’s Book Club: World War Z

If Oprah can do it, so can I, and I don’t think any of our book selections will overlap. (maybe some of these authors might start bribing me to be in my book club too!)  So here you go, if you like my twisted sense of humor, or you’re just looking for something to read, I am going to post a quick review of whatever book I happen to be enjoying each week.  I’ve always been an avid reader, and I try to read at least one book a week.  This week I’ve been reading World War Z.  It’s about the Zombie Apocalypse, but before you groan about zombies, the author  narrates the story from an interviewer’s perspective as he debriefs people about their experiences in key moments during the war.  That is why it’s subtitled “An Oral History of the Zombie War”  So you get little short stories told by different people from front line soldiers, doctors who treated patient zero, war profiteers, politicians, and the everyday people who became heroes.

Yes it is a zombie book, and there is blood and gore. However, the zombies aren’t the story the people are; as such their stories are quite surprising.  It’s not about a superhuman zombie terminating good guy. This book is about normal people in extraordinary circumstances, being the best or worst they can be in the face of overwhelming odds.  The story of the Battle of Yonkers, as told by a front line infantryman, and his criticisms of his officers and intelligence personnel, it is a standout chapter. But even the story about the agoraphobic internet nerd from Japan was impossible to stop mid-read.  Max Brooks does a great job seeing things from many different perspectives, including psychological factors, egos and intelligence that come across differently from each character, but are well translated by the UN Narrator.

And As Much as I enjoyed this book, obviously someone in Hollywood liked it too, because the movie version is under production, starring Brad Pitt, and is slated to hit theaters in 2012.  Do yourself a favor and definitely read this one before you see the movie.

I am always looking for something new to read, so if you have a book selection you think I might enjoy, email me the title and author and I will take a look. adam@bryanbroadcasting.com

Adam Knight: Aggieland’s Non-Academic Advisor

What Not to Wear and College Student Etiquette:

First of all, High School is over, if you brought your Letterman Jacket for the winter or you’re still wearing you High School Ring…TAKE THEM BACK HOME NEXT TIME YOU VISIT YOUR PARENTS.  Leave them in your parents’ house, and don’t worry about seeing them again until your 5 or 10 year class reunion.  I know you spent a ton of money on that High School ring, but the only ring you should be worried about now is that Aggie ring. (And for goodness sake, take your Graduation Tassel off your rearview mirror.)

So you’re at a party and you’ve gotten past the where’s your Hometown and what’s your Major icebreakers and you want to brag about yourself…DON’T TALK ABOUT YOUR SAT/ACT SCORES, or WHAT PLACE YOU GRADUATED IN…they’re not that impressive, everyone at A&M had to meet the same requirements to get in and no one cares what you did in High School.

The Freshman 15 is not a myth; in fact I’ve seen the Freshman 50 hit some students.  Remember when you were in High School, in athletics, burning 7,000 plus calories a day, yes you could eat whatever you wanted. Now you sit in class, sit in a computer lab, or sit and play XBOX and you’re not burning anything.  Go to the Rec Center (you’re paying for it) Get a membership at Gold’s, Aggieland Fitness Dome, or Aerofit, they’ve all got great student plans and USE IT.  Remember a healthy body is not only nice to look at, but also helps keep your mind healthy as well.

I know we are in a major drought now, but October and November are Monsoon season for BCS.  Guys get a big golf umbrella and ladies get your little cute rain boots and rain coats, cause one day you’re going to be walking to class in the rain, and it sucks to be soaked to the bone when the Professor is blasting the AC at 64 degrees.

As for going to class, think of your fellow Aggies: just because you can roll out of bed and walk to chemistry in your PJ’s you haven’t washed in a month, it doesn’t mean you should.  Stock up on free t-shirts and if your lucky you won’t have to wash shirts for like 3 weeks.  If you went to a party or the bar the night before and took the walk of shame straight to class, sit on the back row…you still smell like stale beer, cigarettes and bad decisions, also it’s less noticeable for you to run out the door to go puke away your hangover if you’re on the back row.  If you’re really smart you’ll keep a spare outfit in the car and some febreeze or perfume.

You came to Texas A&M to get a world class education, though it won’t always be your main priority, make sure you always keep in mind that is why you are here, and you will finish and you will succeed.

Finally, and in all seriousness: if you ever get in trouble legally, financially or otherwise TELL YOUR PARENTS.  Seriously, they may not bail you out, but don’t try to hide it from them it will always turn out worse for you in the end if you do.

Good Luck,

Thanks and Gig ‘Em!
