I don't know if A&M really decided to leave a year and a half ago--I suspect not since the ridiculous Longhorn network wasn't yet a reality at that point. As for the ass kicking, better get used to that as an Aggie fan. It's not going to get any better against Bama, Auburn, and LSU on a yearly basis. Christ, for someone who's remarkably polite off the field, Blackmon is really teetering on douchebaggery between the white lines. Dumb ass nearly cost us the game. Those last few minutes needn't have been so nerve wracking if he weren't anticipating showboating and had held on to the effing football. Weeden was NOT pleased with him and said so to the paper. The local play by play guys, one of them a former player, said Gundy kept it private, but he also was not very pleased with Mr. Blackmon's idiocy and had a heated chat with him after the game.
