Second Impressions
My 2nd impression is that Kevin Sumlin might not be coaching A&M tomorrow.  Did they seriously lose a 44-10 lead and lose 45-44?  Is that possible for anyone?  Well, besides my Falcons in the Super Bowl?

44-10 and you lost?  I didn't watch any of it.  I just read about it.  Anyone see the game?  How does that happen?
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

I watched some of the worst pass defense ever by A@M.
I know Sumlin doesn't coach D but yeah this was a bad loss.

Re: Second Impressions
Was watching, switched over to WV-VT, then switched back.  For most of the game, UCLA looked soft.  aTm was running the ball at will.  Didn't see the first 21 points of the comeback, but once the worm turned, aTm just folded.  It didn't help that they played completely stupid.  They repeatedly tried to throw the ball with a backup freshman qb and threw incompletions, when all they needed to do was run out the clock.

Overall, I would equate aTm's performance in the 4th quarter to their last attempt to build a big bonfire, with similar results.

Re: Second Impressions
I watched up until like 28-10. Told my roommate score and he said it doesn't surprise him. Told him it wouldn't surprise me if aggies lose it. Watched the other game and gave no more thought to the game. Just woke up for my 3 am wake and bake and saw they lost. WTF!
I'm nostrafudgeingdomas I tell you.

Yup, wouldn't doubt it either.

Just to piggyback on the other "Impressions" thread regarding vanilla offense but you are correct for noting a miserable 2nd half offensive showing that kept turning over the ball to UCLA which kept the A@M defense on the field.
Rosen, like almost every one of his predecessors has made a career out of doubling up stats against weaker opponents whereas they normally get thwarted by teams with a modicum of defense.
Yes he's got size and talent but he's still an overrated, soft-shelled California kid waiting to be baptized by fire.

"Chief"
Only Sumlin's 2nd half plan made whomever is in charge of the defense now look more like a chef.

Re: Second Impressions
Watched the whole thing. TAMU's starter at QB got hurt and then they asked their other frosh to throw it 17 times where he completed maybe one of them. This was after they had rushed for over 300 yards. But the blame goes to Chavis and the d who didn't adjust when UCLA shored up protection and Rosen just carried them. UCLA is not a good team, but neither is TAMU. I don't either coach makes it through the year. Go ahead and flip that toss up to a win for AU. TAMU is in free fall.

I only had it on to see what TAMU had and observe another Mora Jr. meltdown. Didn't learn much although given our past against teams given up for dead I'll reserve comment about our travel date to College Station.

Re: Second Impressions
Rosen threw for 300 and 4TDs...in the 4th quarter.

Sumlin is toast.

The fake spike he threw for a score is one we could use maybe later on in the year.

I don't even know how he has made it this far, really.  He was a mediocre coach in C-USA.  The only success he has seen in the SEC is with Manziel.  No way he makes it to 2018.

It is the occasional post like this from you that makes me willing to let you buy my lunch.

Who else is going to talk excessively about Chizzy behind his back?

Lemme check the temperature tomorrow.  I should have some availability this week.

Re: Second Impressions
I did something I rarely do for anything other than Auburn games. I sat and watched the UT/GT game from start to finish.  It was either that or WWE Raw.  Turned out to be one heck of a finish going into 2 OTs. 

The Vols won but Tech was in total control for 86.48% of the game with their option attack.  Look for the Jackets to lose 7-8 games this year because while their QB looked darn skippy running the offense last night, he's also 5'10" 185 and he ran it, I believe 42 times.  He made the entire thing go and he's going to get crushed before mid-season.

Not real impressed with UT.  Breaking in a new QB and he didn't wow in any way shape or form.  When he did hit the receivers, they usually dropped it.  Had a couple of good, long pass plays though.  Tennessee finally figured out that they had a back that was better than everyone else on the field and started feeding it to him late.  That saved their a$$es.  I wouldn't think they'd be a contender for the East but then, the East is pretty crappy overall.

Watched the second half.

If Butch Jones coached my daughter's 12-under volleyball team I'd be embarrassed.  I can't imagine how Vols fans feel having that moron in charge of their football program.

I wanted them to lose.  They should have lost.
