There was a fantastically negative article in the Houston Chronicle about Texas A&M this week. The headline is “Also-ran status looms for Aggies” and the article itself is even more scathing. The Aggies are 25.5-point underdogs this weekend in their too mediocre to be televised match-up against [tag]Oklahoma State[/tag]. Not real [tag]Oklahoma[/tag] mind you, the light version. How big would the spread be if they were playing the Sooners?

Former A&M coach Jackie Sherrill thinks they should start cheating like when he was the coach the program has taken a giant step back:

The signs of decline around the Texas A&M football program have been apparent for a while now.

But after a lackluster month of non-conference play and days before the Aggies’ Big 12 opener, the reality is the program could be headed for one of its rockiest rides in nearly 40 years. A&M is a four-touchdown underdog entering Saturday’s game at No. 21 Oklahoma State – a team the Aggies have beaten four times in a row, including two consecutive one-point victories.

“Since when has A&M been a 25-point underdog to Oklahoma State or a 25-point underdog to anybody?” said former A&M coach Jackie Sherrill, referencing the opening line for Saturday’s game. “So they’ve taken a tremendous step back.”

Many thanks to EDSBS for the link.
