The Aggies won their first football game under Coach Fran. To me, though, it looked like a new wrapper on the same old fish. The offense was very weak, and against a small college. Same song, second verse. The Aggies cannot seem to score.

I also did not like the showboating. The players lined up and walked in behind the coach, which was nice, but with some of the players pumping their arms for crowed response. I liked it better when they came in looking determined to play the game. Then, they lost a touchdown on a kick return because one of the blockers was celebrating too early and tripped the runner. That was incredibly stupid and showing off before you earned it.

We can only hope the team improves before meeting conference competition, and buckles down to play for the win, not for the applause.
