With insight from Todd Day:

The former Arkansas and Hamilton High basketball sharpshooter, who helped the Razorbacks to the 1990 Final Four and whose smooth three-point shooting stroke helped him last eight NBA seasons, tuned in last Saturday when first-year SEC member Texas A & M marched into Tuscaloosa to play top-ranked and defending national champion Alabama.

The Aggies, playing their hyper-speed, fast-break offensive attack operated by force-of-nature redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel, jumped to a 20-0 lead and led wire-to-wire for a 29-24 victory.

"There might be other (non-SEC) teams who run that type of offense, but they don't have that type of quarterback," Day said.

So why is Day, 42, involved in a football discussion? Because after the Aggies' victory last Saturday, I'm convinced A & M's style of play can have as big an impact on SEC football as Arkansas had on SEC basketball when it entered the SEC in the 1991-92 season playing then-coach Nolan Richardson's "Forty Minutes of Hell" running and pressing style.

  • Bless your heart. :(

Are they winning the conference or something?

Right now they are in 3rd place in their own division.

Hardly even comparable.

Yeah...and we were already a very good program prior to leaving the SWC. We were the best team in the SWC when we left and aTm wasn't. I don't know if aTm can sustain what they have going. There are a serious injury away from having less than a mediocre season. There is just no comparison really.

  • Hogville.net Rocks!

Aggies have consistently had high ranked recruiting classes but seldom have been able to put it all together.  they have a tremendous recruiting area in the south texas houston area and now that they are in SEC can play that card as well..
