Just a DEVASTATING scene.
Texas A&M came into this season with a ton of hype, bringing in the number one recruiting class because of all that oil money that flows through from boosters at the school (that’s never been proven, but I’d bet my life on it).
I mean sheesh, A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher almost had an aneurism when Alabama coach Nick Saban called the school out for paying players.
The expectations have never been higher for the Aggies, and with a recruiting class like that, they were searching for an SEC Championship and a College Football Playoff birth.
However, the Appalachian State Mountaineers came to town this past Saturday, and they weren’t gonna let that happen on their watch, upsetting A&M 17-14.
If you’re a college football fan, then you know App State is a trap game.
They’re arguably the best Group of Five program in the country, and they’re gonna give you your best week in and week out, and they’ve shocked a number of big time schools in the past.
Needless to say, it’s a big time gamble to pay them tons of money to come play on your home turf for a “tune up game.”
Nevertheless, it’s still an embarrassing loss for Texas A&M, considering they were more talented than the Mountaineers at just about every position on paper.
Ya just can’t coach heart, I guess.
And to make matters worse, a video has surfaced of an A&M hype man absolutely shitting on App State the night before the game.
A&M has this tradition called the “Midnight Yell,” where every Friday night when the clock turns 12, one of these “hype guys” goes and tries to hype up the crowd by saying the lamest things about the team they’re playing on Saturday.
You might as well have a couple of middle schoolers come out and tell a few “Yo mama” jokes.
Anyways, this dude proceeded to say some choice words, that he would instantly regret:
“I Googled this team to make sure they’re even real. I was really confused, because Appalachia is definitely not a state. But, sure enough I found them, and they’re located deep, and I mean deep in the backwoods, just like you would think any hillbilly college that names themselves the ‘Mountaineers.’
I just hope that these guys can get here tomorrow alright, because I know for a fact that half of their football team can barely even read the name on their jerseys, let alone read a map.
It’s a shame that the only two brain cells that all these guys have left are gonna get knocked out by our wrecking crew defense tomorrow.”
I mean good got almighty, he gave his own team the kiss of death. I blame this guy.
He might just wanna retire from his job at this point, because this is downright embarrassing.
