Most A&M fans were thinking that just making a bowl game with the schedule we had, new coaches/systems, redshirt QB, etc. would be the most realistic goal for this year, but so far the team has vastly exceeded expectations. The 7-5 we were hoping for for our inaugural campaign may still be what we end up with, but the games at Auburn, against Mizzou and even LSU at home look a lot more "winnable" than they did at the beginning of the season with MSU looking less winnable at this point.
Even without drinking the maroon koolaide, I think it's safe to say we're ahead of where we thought we would be this year. Last year's team wouldn't have overcome 6 turnovers to win that game in comeback fashion. We've lived and died with Johnny Football, and with him we've got a puncher's chance against anyone this year. Who knows, we may slip and fall against La Tech... or we might beat LSU. We're happy with the direction of this program - up.

John, I've been a big fan of your site since the initial study you did on realignment. That said, we were upset with your initial headline on the story because it invoked exactly the kind of reaction that the group behind the billboard wanted, a kneejerk and negative one. You played directly into their efforts. We are used to having the print media in Texas full of graduates from other universities, belittling the ags and muckraking for all the dirt they can find on us while keeping stories suppressed about their alma maters. It is disappointing when the burnt orange machine gets someone to shoot friendly fire at us. And don't think they're not getting a bunch of chuckles from what they deem to be "ignorant SEC fans" who take the bait, hook, line and sinker. This is as much an insult to the fanbases of the SEC as it is a prank on us, remember that.
