Before the Aggies kickoff at 2:30 p.m., here is the recap for last week’s matchup against Lamar.
As a Former Student (‘81) I try not to worry myself with what the current student body says or does. I had my time; it’s now your time. I recently read that a lot of students wanted to return to playing t.u. in football. The author of the story tried to make the case that we shouldn’t shy away from the challenge. It bothered me at the time but I could not put my finger on why. After reading about some of the circumstances that LSU had to deal with, it reminded me of why I am so glad that we no longer play t.u. Everyone knows that the friends you keep affect you. Same thing goes in business and in Universities.
