04:08 PM ET 06.14 | Texas A&M may have only been in the SEC for one season, but they're already building up a rivalry with Alabama.

After Johnny Manziel and the Aggies went into Tuscaloosa and knocked off the Crimson Tide -- their only loss in a season where they won their second straight national championship -- the stage is set for this year's Week 2 matchup, a game that could decide quite a bit about the makeup of this college football season. At a dinner for A&M boosters, Aggie Athletic director Eric Hyman asked the crowd what Texas A&M and the moon have in common. The answer? They "both control the Tide." Aaaaaaaand scene.

Rather funny if you read the article, because Ala did lose to them in November last year and somehow they still played in the NC, so if they were to lose again in September this year that would hurt their chances, yes it would, but judging from last year not much.

Ancient history, my friend. Might as well complain about that tie between the Rams and the 49ers, because that was a tragedy. Rams should have won.

JK, you are correct, it is ancient history and I should know better, as that is really no my style to go back. I have to keep it current, as this year is the only season that really counts, as of today!!!
