08:20 AM ET 04.30 | In the eyes of many, Texas A&M sophomore Jameill Showers appeared to have taken the lead in any quarterback race in College Station. A&M offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury isn't quite ready to declare a winner in the quarterback sweepstakes, however, especially with three months of the offseason dead ahead. "We want this summer to be part of the competition," Kingsbury said. "They all made strides, but in 15 practices, I can't see enough to make a decision." ... [Showers completed] 20 of 31 passes for 203 yards. His primary competition, freshman Johnny Manziel, a former Kerrville Tivy star, completed 13 of 27 passes for 154 yards and a TD, along with an interception.

In other news from College Station:The Texas A&M Aggies played their final baseball and softball games against the 'Horns yesterday, losing both. In team sports with head-to-head match-ups, the Aggies have now lost their final game against the 'Horns in football, volleyball, men's basketball, women's tennis, women's rowing, softball and baseball. I'm pretty sure men's tennis and men's rowing go in this group as well, but I have been unable to get confirmation................Karma for the screechy, whiny, accusatory manner of their exit. G'bye.

Men's tennis yes, M rowing doesn't exit, Title IX casualty. Also, throw in Swimming and Diving - both M and W. Golf also, without the no.1 player in the country, who was busy making the cut on the PGA that weekend.

Love the sendoff...

One of the locals described it as a "Leach TTech spread offense on steroids".

I guess he forgot Leach beat them 2 out of 3 times they played.

I'm hoping the Gators' front 7 D give them a nice, unfriendly welcome to the conference when we come to visit. We'll see what happens.

Kingsbury

I wonder if he has little goal posts to poke at the aggs similar to Major's boxing glove on a shovel handle

I didn't know swimming, diving and golf had head-to-head match-ups.With a campus only a mile from Town Lake, they should have found something besides rowing to sacrifice to Title IX. Or maybe they could add another women's sport? I vote for lingerie football or jello wrestling.Anyway, now that they're gone, can I see HS football games on Friday nights?

Naked women's gymnastics!
