When: Saturday, November 1st, 4 PM
Where: Texas A&M University-Commerce Memorial Stadium
Weather: 55 Degrees At Kickoff, North Wind at 11 MPH
Thoughts: Just in case some of you had heard the news, West Texas A&M got their hand caught in the cookie jar yet again. Long story short, a backup kicker was coerced into taking a Spanish test for a Star Wideout at the urging of a Coach. When that kicker, who did so to get into the good graces of his coaches was benched, he demanded a transfer to another school. The coaches and athletic admins refused, and hell hath no fury like a benched athletes scorn. He went to the media and here we are. Now, why do I bring this up? Because WT has to nullify 5 games, one of which would give us a tie with Angelo State and Midwestern State at 1 loss, but alas, it was told to me this morning by multiple sources that the loss only will hurt WT. We are still in sole possession of first place and a win today gives us the outright conference championship. So there you have it.
Get there early: Rumor has it that there will be over 10,000 fans today, which would fill up the west side of the stadium, but would bleed over into the east side as well. This might be the biggest game to come to Commerce in over 30 years.
Offensive shootout in the making-Both McMurry and TAMUC both have very good offenses, but as Midwestern showed us, they can be stopped. MSU might have the best defense in the league overall. They held both the Lions and the Hawks to season lows in scoring. However, last time we played, it was a 65-43 decision. Hope its better for us this time around as we had to just outscore them.
Senior Day: Get there to honor this group of Seniors that have worked so hard. Just think that 2 years ago, they were searching for victory number 2, now they are going for a conference championship.
Ill be heading to Commerce in the next couple of hours. Hope to see all of you there. Lets do this!
