We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Different program. Apples to oranges.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Here's what I think. A&M's running an explosive offense in a conference where the players and coaches are completely unfamiliar with it. Completely, as in they look lost. The Alabama game was a good example. 20 of their 29 points were scored in the first quarter - their first 3 possessions.. Alabama pretty much stuffed them the rest of the game after they put a spy on the qb and started keeping the receivers in front of them. Let's look how they're doing in 2-3 years when the SEC catches up. I personally think any no huddle spread offense from the Big XII would have had the same success as aggie - they don't know how to defend it there - yet.
So I guess LSU beating Oregon and West Virginia last year doesn't count?
Pace based offenses are tough to prep for, but aTm has one of the better OL units in the country.
I think that has more to do with their success, on offense, than teams not knowing how to defend it.
I'm not a Texas fan, so I think its hilarious.
Nah. They weren't SEC teams, so they weren't quality wins.
Ah Penn state fan. That's even worse
Because they scored more points.
vs SMU- 48-3
vs Sac St- 70-14
vs La Tech- 59-57
vs Sam Houston St- 47-28 (aTm was up 47-0)
Grew up an OU fan until I enrolled at PSU two and a half years ago.
Is there anything worse than being a Texas fan?
It is impressive what Sumlin has been able to do this season, but IMO it does show that the SEC isn't invincible like fans and ESPN believes. There are some good defenses, one or two good offenses, and several strong home field advantages.
I don't see how a program with a new HC, new systems, and a freshman QB should be tearing up a conference that was supposed to be much more difficult than the one the more talented team failed miserably in the year before. The defense was awful last season, and has a bunch of new starters in the secondary including two underclassmen at CB. I know the SEC doesn't have many good QBs, but NOBODY can tear those guys up? I expected more from the "toughest conference in the land."
Didnt Sumlin blow Penn St out with Houston's players?
Lol, I get it now.
Yerp, he did. Terrible matchup for us, and he exploited it to the fullest.
Don't see how that relates to the SEC argument though. Nice try?
LSU beat the Aggies, all that matters to me
What sec argument?
About it being overrated? On a team by team basis, that may be the case.
College football is all about analyst getting too caught up in their own allegiances/agendas.
The real difference lies within the actual strength of the "football programs." There are some great football programs in the south.
His is better. His has less games in the trail.
Yes there are. There are some pretty darn good ones in other parts of the country though, and media outlets today don't seem to give programs outside of the SEC much attention.
Meh LSU would man handle those child rappers
Sorry my team does play the weak ass little 12
OU is a bunch of child rapers? You really a retard. Glad to see that LSU education is working for ya. Maybe next year they'll teach reading comprehension!?
I'm also not a Texas fan. I guess you got confused by all the big numbers I posted. I'll try and keep in mind your low IQ in my next post.

Your team looks like crap against Ole Miss and Auburn, and gets beat by Bama and an overrated Florida team.
You would be mediocre in any conference, whether it's the SEC or the Big East.
It's all good bro! It's just about the simplest explanation is the best.
