The A&M team and staff seem like a precision instrument engineered to take apart an occasionally lazy and frequently sloppy LV team. I will watch and pull for them, but I only hope they can produce a better effort than the men did yesterday; an outright win would boggle my mind, in a good way, of course.

The LVs lack grit and determination. If they get going well and have no set backs, they will do great. However, if anything goes wrong at any point in the game, they will roll over and expose their throats like a whipped dog. Wish it were otherwise, but it is what it is.

If only the players can overcome what has been for 5+ years a hapless offensive strategy, haphazard substitutions and lack of preparation for the specific opponent, their 'laziness' and 'lack of grit and determination' won't be noticed. What bad luck that we have for 6 years recruited all players with such terrible character flaws!
