Wk 2: Tamu @ sdsu The Aggies rolled into Sunny San Diego to match up with, on paper, what appeared to be an evenly talented team in the SDSU Aztecs. TAMU was excited to get a good look at Soph JUCO transfer David Nash who was highly recruited by both the Aggies and Penn State. The young, speedy HB got off to a great start in the 1st qtr, cutting and dashing for an 8 yard per carry average until tragedy struck. On his 8th carry of his Div I college career the kid blew out his knee... dislocated and he will miss at least 11 weeks according to early reports from the trainers. Coach RynoAid stared down the bench at the lot of HB's on the roster and he made a tough decision. He decided to yank the redshirt off the true Freshman speedster Eugene 'the speed machine' Fields. "I don't know why i did it, probably a kneejerk on my part but i just havn't seen what i want at HB out of my Juniors and Seniors going all the way back to spring practices... I was happy with David, but that was a bad knee injury and i knew as they helped him off the field. I just looked into the Freshman's eyes and all i could see was "put me in coach... put me in coach".. so i did." And the fish fried the Aztec defense. With a combination of blazing speed and suprising toughness, he churned out 139 yards on just 16 carries. The Aggies leaned on the running game and SOLID defense in the first half. But the injury bug would bite again as starting LOLB Stewart would blow out his ACL in the 2nd qtr dealing another tough blow in this young season. "That one is gonna hurt, that kid was becoming the leader of our defense.. his speed and toughness is gonna be sorely missed." said coach RynoAid after the game. But the defense rallied around each other and held the Aztec offense to 7 points going into the 3rd qtr. But they could not contain Marcus "Do it All" Hall forever. He took over the game offensively for SDSU.. ending up with 100 plus yards rushing and receiving, keeping the Aztecs in the game. TAMU buried them in the 4th though, with a 75 yard punt return for TD and solid ball control led by Junior QB and BMOC Todd Butler. "He wasn't as effecient in the passing game as we would like to see him, but he kept us in the game with his legs and his guts, that kid is tough" 14 carries for 76 yards and 2 TD passes was enough to push the Aggies out to a 35-14 victory over a game SDSU team. TAMU will pack things up and head to Indiana to face national powerhouse Purdue and will be licking their wounds, trying to deal with some devastating week 1 injuries.
