The Pulse: Texas A&M Football Runs Back Final Regular Season Game and Looks Forward to Future
The final episode of the regular season for The Pulse: Texas A&M football has been released. You can watch it at this link or below:
This episode recaps the tough final game of the regular season, wherein the Aggies, though holding a halftime lead over a top-25 LSU squad, eventually fell to the Tigers, 42-30.
In this episode, you get to see the team gathering for Thanksgiving and engage in some other team-building activities before the game. The episode really wastes no time, however, and takes us right to Death Valley.
Though he is definitely softer-spoken than Jimbo is, you can see why coach Robinson is so highly thought of in the clips that are shown of him. He motivates with positivity, love, and confidence—obviously not things that Jimbo was lacking in his pregame speeches, but they resonate differently (whether that is due to simply a new voice delivering the message or a categorical difference would be up for interpretation). The team stood in the locker room, arm in arm, in pregame and at halftime as coach Robinson spoke to them about leaving all fear and all doubt within that room; none of it accompanying them onto the field that day. The team did play valiantly, of course, but just couldn’t hold back the indefatigable Tiger offense when all was said and done. Robinson was moved to tears afterwards speaking about how proud he was of the team for sticking together through everything, and imploring them to stay together as they go forward.
The episode concludes with a look to the future. Since we will get an episode for the bowl game, I imagine we will see significantly more of Coach Elko and his process/vision for the program in that one, but this episode dealt with the task of introducing—or, more accurately, re-introducing—the former Aggie defensive coordinator in his new role as head man. We saw clips of the welcome ceremony and opening press conference, as well as exclusive interview clips.
In all, this episode is a great watch for Texas A&M football fans—even those who don’t like viewing after losses. It won’t disappoint.
