Kevin Sumlin didn't say much and he didn't need to. He let last season's result do the talking. During a Dallas A&M Club event Thursday night at Gilley's Dallas, the Texas A&M coach took questions from the crowd to cap the evening. The question that received the shortest response was one about the Alabama football team hanging Texas A&M signs in their weight room, a little extra motivation from last year's 29-24 Aggies victory in Tuscaloosa. When Sumlin was asked what he's been doing to motivate his players for this season's game against Alabama, Sumlin replied: "Same thing we did last year. That seemed to work." The room went crazy and Sumlin smiled. "Like Toney Hurd said, we got A&M stuff all over our weight room, too," Sumlin added. Alabama finished the 2012 season 13-1, defeating Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game, 42-14. Texas A&M hosts the Crimson Tide on Sept. 14 at Kyle Field.
