Eat 'em up, Kats!

    Today at 1pm on ABC, Sam Houston State (my daughter's Alma Mater) plays for the Division 2 national championship against South Dakota State. I will be watching and I hope a lot of Horn fans will be rooting for a small school title to come home to the Lone Star State.

    On a side note, I looked for Toniel Carter on the SHSU roster (he transferred there when he left UT) and he was nowhere to be found. A little more research showed his name on the Texas A&I* roster, but again, nothing to indicate he is actively on that team either. Talk about a fall from grace. I hope Toneil is doing all right.








    * F aggy. I won't call the school in Kingsville by its new name. For the sake of Gil Steinke's memory and their rich football history, they don't deserve that level of insult.

    My son is a senior there. Unfortunately I'm not sure he could identify a football if I put five different balls in front of him. But it matters to me. :hookem:

    Notice ABC didn't show a clear angle of the holding call that brought back Sam's TD?

    OL brought him to the ground but no view of a fistful of jersey; in fact , his left hand was free. That and the questionable "falling into the back of defender" on the kick return are open to interpretation.

    I would be interested to see the TV viewing audience numbers. This was such a great, hard hitting, fundamentally sound football game, with nothing on opposite it (golf was rain delayed as well), I would think that the viewer rantings would be far greater than if they had played in December.

    Damn those kids knocked the crap out of each other, and kept getting back up for more. #12 & the QB from Sam put on a show, but the RB from SDSU stole the show.

    Happy for the people in Walker County.

    It might be something the D-2 type schools could consider as a permanent move, playing small school football in the Spring semester.

    My Bachelors degree came from there although it is
    Ahem...D-1AA AKA FCS. D2 is something else ;)

    Oh, and how dare you say nothing else was on...the Knights were on NBC and the VGK do get a bit of a following. What sucked was it going to OT 0-0 right as SHSU game was winding down...what sucked worse was VGK losing in OT after Marc Andre Fleury posted a quality sixty minutes of making impressive stop after stop.

    Back to topic at hand...it will be interesting to see which camp Ezzard winds up in as a UFA. He had another highlight reel today to go with several good games throughout the season.

    And can we teach toughness? The 'kat QB KEPT coming back time and again...

    The REALLY nice thing about SHSU being national champions is that the aggy faithful, come September, will be able to say that they witnessed an in-state National Champion football team at the tacklebox in this decade...

    I was at the game and the officiating seemed a little suspect in person. There were many obvious penalties that weren't called but then called ticky tac ones like on those 2 TDs. Sam Houston is lucky to have that head coach. He's always been a winner

    You mean like the one in the 4th when the SDSU DE jumped offside and hammered the Sam Houston QB to the ground and Sam received a illegal procedure penalty?

    The Sam Houston QB is tough for sure. I watched some of the game and in the NFL those players get tossed for those hits. Shots to the head and a pile drive or two.

    I wanted to watch the regular season but it wasnt well covered. Glad that championship game made national television.

    64,

    Really? A&M has several football nattys from Coach Gil Steinke in Kingsville, plus one from ETSU in Commerce, not to mention they have been undefeated in every spring game going back over 50 years.

    I like to make fun of the Aggies, but we must give credit where credit is due or else that Trophy Room will stay empty.

    Way to just randomly choose 80 years as your time horizon. We can see right through your pathetic attempts to belittle and dismiss the proud aggy football history. Why don't you run those numbers using 90 years? Or 85 years? Even 82! Because then all would be made aware of true aggy football dominance in this state.

    I vaguely recall Texags commenting that no one is alive today who actually saw a NC-winning football Aggy team as you would likely need to be 100 years old or older.

    You two caught me. Next time I'll run analysis on all D1 and D2 teams in the state over the past 82 years. I agree 82 is a much more logical number of years than 80.
