ALL CAPS PREVIEW- TEXAS A&M AGGIES VS. ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS


EVERYTHING STARTS THIS SATURDAY. I MEAN EVERYTHING. NOTHING WE’VE DONE IN THE PAST AGAINST ARKANSAS MATTERS. IN FACT AS FAR AS IM CONCERNED THE LAST TIME WE PLAYED ARKANSAS THIS HAPPENED

AS FAR AS IM CONCERNED THAT BRUTAL LOSS WAS LAST YEAR. AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS. ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT WE’RE PLAYING A TALENTED TEAM THAT WANTS TO BEAT US BADLY THIS WEEKEND. THEY WANT THIS WIN IN A BAD WAY. AND ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT WE FOCUS ON THE TASK AT HAND AND DO WHAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF DOING.

ARKANSAS IS A TALENTED SQUAD THAT BELIEVES IN ITSELF, AND FOR GOOD REASON. THEY’VE GOT GOOD COACHES AND GOOD TALENT. BUT AS CLICHE AS IT IS TO SAY THIS GAME IS ABOUT OUR EFFORT AND OUR ABILITY TO PLAY TO THE LEVEL WE ARE CAPABLE OF. EVERYTHING IS A CHOICE AND THE CHOICE THAT YOUR FIGHTIN TEXAS AGGIES HAVE IN FRONT OF THEM IS SIMPLE: ARE WE WILLING TO DO EVERYTHING THAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF DOING TO GET THIS DUB.

I THINK THE ANSWER IS YES. WE CONTROL OUR EFFORT. WE CONTROL WHAT’S IN FRONT OF US. IT IS A CHOICE TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND MAXIMIZE YOUR POTENTIAL. AND THAT CHOICE IS ONE THAT WE MUST MAKE EVERY SINGLE DAY.

AND WE ARE DAMN SURE GOING TO MAKE IT THIS SATURDAY. OUR GUYS ARE GOING TO WAKE UP AND MAKE THE CHOICE TO DO EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO COME OUT OF THAT STADIUM WITH A WIN.

I THINK A LOT ABOUT LUCK WHEN IT COMES TO FOOTBALL, HOW OUTSIDE FORCES MIGHT INFLUENCE THE OUTCOME OF A GAME…THAT SOMEHOW THERE ARE METAPHYSICAL FORCES BIGGER THAN US THAT INFLUENCE FOOTBALL AND WE NEED TO FIND A WAY TO HARNESS THEM THROUGH SILLY THINGS LIKE SHIRT CHANGES AND WHAT NOT. BUT FOR THE GUYS ON THE FIELD (ANOTHER CLICHE) LUCK MEANS NOTHING. LUCK IS PREPAREDNESS MEETING OPPORTUNITY.

THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THAT IS DEMOND DEMAS. WE KNOW HE’S BEEN FRUSTRATED ABOUT NOT PLAYING. BUT YOU DONT HAVE TO GET READY IF YOU STAY READY. AND WHEN YOU STAY READY THAT ODD CONCEPT OF LUCK LEAVES YOU WIDE OPEN RUNNING DOWN THE FIELD WITH A QB WHO PUTS JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF AIR UNDER THE BALL

AND YOU START YOUR CAREER AS A FIGHTIN TEXAS AGGIE STARTER WITH A 1 CATCH 1 TD RATIO. NOT TOO DAMN SHABBY.

ON SUNDAY MORNINGS MY GUY CLETE NORTON TWEETS OUT THE SAME PICTURE

AND WE RESET. WE FORGET ABOUT THE PREVIOUS WEEK AND WE GET READY FOR THE NEXT WEEK. EVERYTHING GOES BACK TO SQUARE ONE WITH THE GOAL OF WINNING THE DADGUM WEEK.

NOTHING WE’VE DONE UP UNTIL NOW MAKES A DAMN BIT OF DIFFERENCE BUT EVERYTHING WE’VE LEARNED AND THE TEAM WE’VE BECOME IN THESE PAST THREE WEEKS DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

AND ITS NOW TIME TO TAKE ALL OF THOSE LESSONS AND TAKE ALL THAT STRUGGLE AND PUT IT TOGETHER FOR 60 MINUTES. 60 MINUTES OF ALL-OUT EFFORT. 60 MINUTES OF MAXIMIZING EVERY BIT OF POTENTIAL WE HAVE TO GET THIS DAMN WIN.

I WANT IT. YOU WANT IT. THE FIGHTIN TEXAS AGGIE FOOTBALL TEAM WANTS IT.

AND ITS TIME TO GO GET IT.

TIME TO GO OUT AND BEAT THE EVERLIVING
