The Daily Aggie :: 10/08/07

Well then, that certainly was a bit unexpected. I don't think there too many people that expected the outcome we saw last night. Boise State looked fast. Very fast. Most of the problems the Aggies were having last night though where correctable. Poor tackling being the biggest issue. There were a number of times that the Aggies had a play figured out and could have stopped the Broncos for either a loss, no gain or a small gain but let the Boise State offensive player, either Taylor Tharpe or Ian Johnson or Titus Young slip through their grasp.

It's a long season and there are still seven more conference games left. The next two games are very winnable. Next weekend against a Louisiana Tech team who is struggling at 1-4 but did play Hawai'i and Fresno State close. After that the Aggies will face Idaho on Homecoming. Two winnable games before the Aggies head to Honolulu to face Hawai'i.

Don't forget to vote for Chase Holbrook in the Davey O'Brien Award fan voting.
