Texas A&M has become the hot story in college football since upsetting heretofore indestructible Alabama on Saturday. Yes, that would be the same A&M featuring coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator Klif Kingsbury's gimmicky Air Raid offense that was supposedly going to get trucked by the SEC's big boys. A&M's spread attack rang up more than 400 yards of total offense, including 165 on the ground. For the game, the Aggies converted a cool 11 of 18 third-down opportunities. A&M scored 29 points, the most allowed by the Crimson Tide since early in 2010. For Nicktator fetishists who bought into the idea of grinding, pro-style offense as the Sabonic form of football, it probably felt like watching a speeding bullet bounce off a Kleenex.

Texas A&M proving they belong in the SEC

The Aggies are sexy again. It's been a long time coming. Something magical happened on the road to irrelevancy and the weekly pounding that was supposed to come with the SEC relocation.
