Texas A&M AD zings Alabama with a lunar one-liner
By now, all who are involved in any booster or quarterback club meeting know that in this 24/7 media world, poking fun or taking light-hearted jabs at another program will be made public. And anytime it involves Alabama, it goes viral.
The Alabama, Texas A&M clash is already the most anticipated game of the season. The Tide and Aggies have the SEC’s two easiest schedules, and they’re ready to punish each other come September 14th for the right to grab the early stranglehold on the SEC’s Wild West.
While speaking at the Brazos County A&M Club Coach’s Night, Texas A&M AD Eric Hyman stoked the ever-burning flame of poking fun at the massive dynasty-stricken elephant in Tuscaloosa.
“What do the moon and Texas A&M have in common? They both control the Tide.”
It’s an age-old – clean – joke that Bama fans have heard before.
The Aggies ventured into enemy territory last season and came out 29-24 winners in Tuscaloosa, marking the only game the Tide lost in another championship season. It was just one accomplishment in a successful and historic inaugural SEC season.
Later Hyman, while introducing head coach Kevin Sumlin, added ‘he wants to be able to say the same thing’ in a year.
And Sumlin, knowing the situation, replied with a light-hearted, “No pressure, Eric. Thank you.”
As if this game needed any more flavor or pizzazz, anyone with a pulse is already looking forward to it.
September 14th can’t get here soon enough, but will it be the only time we see these two teams lock horns this season?
