Texas A&M’s SEC Monopoly in Texas

English: Logo of the Southeastern Conference (...

by Travis Normand

Since Texas A&M joined the SEC, Clay Travis (OutKickTheCoverage.com) has written several interesting columns concerning the effect that such a move will have on the Aggies, as well as the Longhorns.

If you don’t read his site very often, I would suggest at least following this link and reading his most recent column on the topic.  While it doesn’t contain any earth-shattering news it does make some interesting points, all of which will be interesting to watch as they play out.

Alabama thinks Texas A&M is not good enough

Alabama v Texas A&M T-shirtby Travis Normand

Before Alabama and Texas A&M faced off on November 10, 2012, someone in Alabama decided they needed t-shirts made specifically for that game. I have no clue why the nation’s number one ranked team, or anyone affiliated with it, would feel the need to make a special t-shirt for that particular game but they did.

Alabama was ranked number one in the country at the time of kick-off, and they were also the defending national champions. Alabama had also won the national title as recently as 2009 as well.

Houston, we have a problem

by Travis Normand

Houston, we have a problem.

If there was any way that I could prevent this bowl from being in Houston, I would do it.  As of a few days ago the most likely candidates to host this bowl game were Dallas or New Orleans.  However, with Houston submitting the highest bid to host the bowl I am guessing that could all change quickly.

Personally, my first choice is New Orleans as there is no better bowl destination city. My second choice would be Dallas, simply because of the Cowboy’s venue. 

As for Houston, well, how do I say this nicely?  I have been to a bowl game in Houston and I am sorry to say that it was not one of my top college football experiences.
