    I agree. I have been pretty careful because I hit the 65 mark a couple of years ago, and my daughter said that I should be. 
     
    So far, 8/10 deaths have been people over 65. I am certain information is out there, but I haven’t looked for it, regarding the percentage of those (over 65) people with diabetes, asthma, COPD, congestive heart failure, or those who were obese or had an otherwise compromised immune system. That number is probably substantial, and they would have been vulnerable regardless of age.
    I have nothing against a responsible news media; however, I loath the 24 hour talking heads.  They don’t have viewers if there is no drama  I’m convinced they have exacerbated the fear, and for some the fear is going to be difficult to overcome.
    If they limit the numbers in the stands, I think they should first ask which Foundation members would like to take a 1 year “leave” from purchasing their tickets, but still make their donation, with the assurance their tickets would be available next year.  If they would, the University can then offer those tickets for sell.
    i really don’t think the players are at risk at their age, according to the data.
    Have a great day.  Are you ready for some football?
    Hook ‘em!

    My favorite:
    I understand we don't cheat. Jimbo isn't that type of coach. Cheating is a violation of the Aggie Honor Code. It's not us. We are better than that.
    Ahem, according to the NCAA, the schools with the most number of major infractions cases:
    SMU, 10
    Arizona State, 9
    Oklahoma, 8
    Wichita State, 8
    Auburn, 7
    Florida State, 7
    Texas A&M, 7
    Don't forget aggie President Bowtie let it slipped they signed contract with $EC three months before agreeing to new Big 12 agreement.

    Watch his film. He will remind of Bowman. Very fast. Very quick, athletic. Gets to the ball in a hurry and is pissed when he gets there.
    Look at his offer list. Great, great pick up.

    How are all you cats doing?  Any of you caught the virus or know someone who did?
    I've been driving back and firth between Katy and Brenham and have yet to hear of anyone who has caught the virus.
    Daughter and her family visited the farm and she caught an 8 bass out of my #2 tank.  Her vet business is doing okay, but she has to meet her clients outside to pick up and deliver their pets.  It's a strange world right now,
    I'm ready for some football - high school or college.  I couldn't care less about the NFL.

    No buyout needed on her contract. She wasn’t fired. Her contract just ran out and was not renewed....... note to staff....don’t give long term contracts until the coach proves he/she can actually coach.

    If asst coaches are telling the head coach to stfu we have the wrong coach. I doubt this has ever happened to Saban or Meyer....

    We can mock it but we've shown nothing in a decade to get any respect.
    If these tanking hold true and we're we finish as the 4th best team in the Big 12 Herman is not the answer. Especially with a 4 yr QB.....

    4 star, 5 star. It don't matter. What matters is what he does on the field and that is on the coaches. This time of year I always hear, we have the talent to beat the NE Patriots and ain't nothing stopping us next year. Then reality hits after the first game or two.

    The Stoops years don’t matter anymore. The Charlie years don’t matter anymore. But 2017 was still a top 25 class the three years around it were 3, 3, and 7. What have we accomplished.
    One 10-4 season and mediocrity.  And 10-4 is barely better than mediocrity.  
    All I want is for us to live up to the recruiting rankings.  I’m tired of being disappointed a few games into the season.  CTH needs to do something.  He has delivered improvement (from a low bar).  He now needs to break through and deliver.
    And remember ou’s 19th ranked class from 2016 just played in the playoff.  There is no excuse.  Just deliver.
     I have no ill feelings toward ou other than rivalry... And they have an inferior school.  I live in Ohio now and I have friends that went to ou.  I have fun until they and OSU go to the playoffs and we go to San Antonio to play in the Alamo Bowl.
