The San Antonio Express-News has some quick notes on the how the NFL Draft went for teams from the Big 12. Texas had seven players selected including and coming in with the second most was the Nebraska Cornhuskers. And of course Texas A&M had zero, which puts them in some fine company:

The Aggies were one of only eight schools in BCS-affiliated conferences to draw a blank in the draft. Others were Indiana, Northwestern, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, North Carolina, Duke and Kansas. A&M hasn’t had an offensive player picked in the first round since 1994.

At least for Northwestern, Vandy, UNC, and Duke they can claim they’re academic powerhouses.

    9 wins including a 12 to 7 victory over the horns with a team not utilizing many seniors.

    Yeah that’s it TW. You guys are awesome. One win every seven years… it’s FRANtastic!

    And nine wins? Other than the Texas game you didn’t beat a single half decent team all year. Enjoy your rise to mediocrity… you’re almost there!

    Lol, good one Gabe. We (Texas Fans) will accept full responsibilty for Ricky Williams. But to insinuate our QB (Colt MCcoy) was injured due to FAIR PLAY is ridiculous. In fact, the Aggie that injured him was ejected for the cheap shot. Keep talking trash though Gaybe, it shows how little you Aggies really know about football.
