It feels different this time

Even in a loss, Jimbo effected the team and the fan base in so many ways that it’s impossible not to feel jacked for the future.

It’s certainly a familiar feeling for most Aggie fans to have them get so close and the game come down to something like that fumble at the one or a missed field goal. This also isn’t the first time a new coach has come in and rejuvenated the fan base. Hell, Kevin Sumlin did that with his win over Alabama in year one.

But anyone around Kyle Field (I was there) can tell you how electric the crowd was for the entire game. It was similar to the Alabama game in 2013, but even louder. This fan base is united in their support for Fisher and in their belief in this team.

You can spare me any warnings of Sumlin doing the same when he first took over. Yes, he got the fans excited, but he still had a lot to prove as a head coach of a major program. Jimbo has been around the block. He knows what it takes to win. Sumlin’s Aggies would have been wiped off the field last night.

Instead, the Fightin’ Texas Aggies went down to the wire and were a failed two-point conversion from tying the game, despite all the mistakes.

Believe in this team, Ags. They are going places.
