Wow! It can't get much better than this!
All of my teams are kicking arse!
First, my Aggies beat t.u. 12-7 for the first time in six years. We beat t.u. at home. We ran for 244 yards against the nation's best run defense that averaged only 42 yards/game. We held t.u. to a single score. We stopped t.u. on fourth and goal. We knocked t.u. out of the Big 12 championship. We intercepted t.u. 4 times. We knocked t.u.'s QB out of the game. The latest AP poll has A&M at #22 and t.u. dropping to #17. A&M finishes the season at 9-3, the same as t.u.
Next up...the Dallas Mavericks. After an 8 game losing streak dating back to the NBA Finals, the Mavs are now on a 9 game winning streak, the best in the NBA. The Mavs beat our biggest rivals, the San Antonio Spurs 95-92 to even the series to 1-1. The Mavs are currently 1.5 games behind the Spurs for the Southwest division lead.
How 'bout them Cowboys? I went to the Cowboys/Colts game where Dallas ruined the Colts perfect season, 21-14. The Cowboys then beat Tampa Bay 38-10 on Thanksgiving with 5 TD passes by new Dallas QB Tony Romo, tying a Cowboys record. After a shaky start, the switch at QB has been huge for Dallas. Not only is Dallas winning, but the rest of our conference is falling apart...the Giants (our next victim) lost 3 in a row and the Eagles have lost their last two, placing Dallas with a 1 game lead over the Giants in the NFC East.
And finally, my Aggie basketball team is unbelievable. They are 5-0 currently and ranked #11 in the week 3 AP top 25. I don't *ever* remember A&M being ranked in a top 25 poll. With 5 of the teams above them losing, there is a good chance A&M will move up again in the polls.
This is fun!
