I’ll start with the least unexpected news of all:
What else? Let’s see if I can drop a few observational nuggets.
Went to a team drill and volleyball practice broke out
During a team passing drill, the defense did its best
The (Lab)Hart of an Aggie
A few months ago at Texas A&M’s first Pro Day…yeah, you see there were two Pro Days at A&M, one
Anyhow, I didn’t quite know what to expect at A&M’s first Pro Day as they only had a handful of seniors on hand. But during the workout, former Aggie wide receiver
A few of us talked to him after his workout and I remember him clearly saying all he wanted was a chance. I told a friend of mine that he would be a perfect fit in Houston, but didn’t think he’d end up here. He wasn’t drafted but he signed with the Texans after all. Consequently, he had a strong rookie camp and is doing just what he did at A&M.
He runs tremendous routes, displays the speed and quickness many overlooked and catches the ball
But Powe is one of a handful of 330 lb. players and one that moves better than you’d expect. I can’t wait to see the havoc he and former Notre Dame product
The ball didn’t hit the ground

The ball didn’t hit the ground.
Andre noted how comfortable the former Pitt star was making his reads and going through his progressions. If that drill was a pop quiz, so to speak, he passed that portion with flying colors. There was no pass rush and it was just pass skelly, but he looked very much at ease finding open receivers and slinging the rock. Then, he completed each throw. This quarterback battle is just as wide open as Bill O’Brien said on Tuesday and Savage won’t sit idly by the next few months.
I was asked this maybe three or four times at practice so I figured I’d note it here just in case you see some pictures from the team’s workouts. The running backs went through the individual drills carrying these blue footballs and it had many wondering what it was. The thought process is that the ball is covered with blue silk and it’s difficult to carry if not tucked away properly by the ball carrier. So, if you see a picture of
FCS, FBS…whatever it takes
He was one of my players to watch in college football since I first saw him last summer. He doesn’t have great long speed but when the lights are on, he makes plays. Wednesday, he made a couple of solid plays on the ball during 7-on-7 that got his defensive teammates excited. He’s going to be in the mix no matter where he played the last four years.
Don’t forget about me
Wearing the number 34 in this town carries a massive responsibility.
Has a nice ring, no? Wait did I say A.J.? As in
