Aggies Breaking Records, but not in a good way

I read the DMN today where the Aggies hadn't opened 0-2 at Kyle Field since 1972, during Emory Ballard's first year. That year, the Aggies went on to start 0-3 at home, as they lost to Army, Texas Tech and Texas Christian before beating Arkansas. As a matter of historical reference, in 1972, the movies nominated for best picture included The Godfather and Deliverance. Since Deliverance brought a whole new meaning to squeal like a pig, it's only fitting that the Aggies snapped this streak against Arkansas. The Aggies finished 3-8 that year.

The Aggies host Army next Saturday in an effort to not repeat 1972. Since Army has played Temple, New Hampshire and Akron while going 0-3 and being outscored 85-20, the prospects for an Aggie W are good.
