So why was DKR's field wet and torn up? I have talked about this with several other BON'ers (Newby, Wells, and other Andrew) 20th century style (in person) and no one new the answer.
I can't say for certain but here are the facts as I know them: the field has an excellent irrigation and drainage system, it hadn't rained recently, yet the field was muddy.
My hypothesis: damn Aggies got into DKR again and flooded it. This may seem like a stretch but they are surprisingly crafty when it comes to cheating ala the last time the Horns stayed in College Station and the hotel didn't serve us breakfast and routed calls into the players rooms all night long. Or prior to that when they got into DKR and sawed Varsity's horns off - literally. Not to mention the occasions they kidnapped BEVO.
A muddy field is a friend of the underdog, slower, pathetic team.
Somebody please respond to this with a simple answer, b/c I hate to think those we let those Aggies get into DKR again.
Lastly, why is that once we notice the field is bad and one player slips do we not see the whole team start changing to longer cleats? I mean all at once and immediately.
