  1. A "run heavy" offense? Aggy passed more than it ran last season. Texas ran more than aggy last season . . . and the year before.
  2. Hey, that poster should know what he's talking about. If there's anyone in this world who is familiar with being "no brained," it's an ag.
  3. I agree that Sam has "carried" the ball approximately two more times per game than Mond over the past few seasons, and that those figures include scrambles and sacks. Aggy wants to make it seem that Sam is running a ton more than Mond, which simply isn't true. My percentage figures are a little different than yours, though. 2019 -- Mond carries 126 times out of a team total of 429 = 29.3%; Sam carries 163 times out of a team total of 480 = 33.9% 2018 -- Mond carries 149 out of a team total of 538 = 27.6%; Sam carries 164 times out of a team total of 569 = 28.8%
  4. Bingo. Horns ran a total of 1, 995 offensive plays over those two seasons. Aggy ran a total of 1,861. Of those, not sure how many Sam and Mond were under center, but I've got to think they were the vast majority of snaps in both instances.
  5. Add in the fact that Mond has averaged approximately 138 rushing attempts per season over the last two seasons (i.e., roughly 25 less per season than Sam) and it means Mond has run about two fewer times per game than Sam. IOW, Mond has run the ball almost as much as Sam over the past two years. At least the difference isn't appreciable enough to prevent us from, once again, calling bullshit on aggy. And, yes, Sam's statistical rushing attempts (which have been 164 and 163, respectively, over the past two seasons) include scrambles, sacks, etc. in addition to called running plays. Same goes for Mond.
  6. Due to a mix-up in urology, no apple juice will be served this morning.
  7. Where is the "yes" option in the OP's poll?
  8. One of the more aggy things I've ever read. Yay! We get to travel to nice places to get our shit pushed in!

  10. I hope you had a hell of a piss, Arnold!
  11. I just appreciate the confirmation that she lurks on this site. Hi, Karen.
  12. "Here's what I told my friends with their white children," he began. "I said, 'Y'all live in a white cul-de-sac, in a white neighborhood, in a white city, in a white state. If you were not careful, your children will live their whole white life, and at 26, 27, they'll end up being a part of the problem, because you just let them and allowed them to live a completely white, sheltered and cultureless life." This is an EA quote recently taken from an article about Oprah Winfrey taking heat for her recent "white privilege" comment. I was struck by the quote, particularly the last part. I respect what EA is doing with "Uncomfortable Conversations . . ." and I tend to agree with a lot of what he says. But I can't subscribe to the notion that living in a "white neighborhood" without much (or any) exposure to the cultures of non-whites somehow equates to a "cultureless life," i.e., a life completely devoid of culture. I suspect he may have intended to convey his belief that a lack of exposure to people of other cultures would result in a very limited or myopic cultural life -- and I would tend to agree with that. But he needs to be careful with his words. The quote, if taken literally, would suggest to some that so-called "white culture" equates to a cultureless life.
  13. A great "Grade B" cult TV film (with a young Robert Urich) that teaches an important lesson: Never, ever try to move a meteorite with a bulldozer.
  14. Too bad you weren't there at the time.
