Regarding alamoaggie08's comment (I agree in essence):  While 9-3 Northwestern is a more successful team this year than last, I'm not sure that A&M OR the SEC would have benefited from a repeat match up against them essentially reprising last year's Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston.  Perhaps some of the Mike Slive magic was recognizing that in addition to making sure Georgia didn't fall too far in the SEC bowl pecking order. 

 

It's been my position all year that (we) Aggies need to be patient and prove their success in the SEC before expecting the accolades to come their way.  That way when they come, we weren't just getting the attention for a "one-off" effort.  And we also don't validate the concerns that our former conference brethren raised about us being whiners and having an inferiority complex.

 

Regardless, BTHO OU when we pick Cotton after New Year's.

about the capitol one bowl article: the fact that they wanted a&m vs. northwestern is a real turnoff.  we just played them in a bowl game last year, and it's not a very intersting matchup.  georgia vs. nebraska is the better of the two.  now if it were a&m vs nebraska or michigan, that would be another story, but if i had to choose between a&m vs. northwestern at captiol one or vs. oklahoma at the cotton, i'd go with the latter everytime.
