…we have Aggies:
Houston Cougars 71 – North Carolina A&T Aggies 67 on basketball Wednesday…
Texas A&M Aggies 33 – Northwestern Wildcats 22 on football Saturday.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news (a/k/a/ reality) everywhere I go – including as to my first journey inside Hoffheinz Pavilion since class registration day for the fall semester of the year I spent there eons ago – but, I must comment on the ‘official’ record of the Cougar-Aggie basketball game:
Sorry, nice try. It was a 2 PM tipoff on a Wednesday afternoon. Yes, the Wednesday was straddling Xmas and New Year’s Day, but it was still a Wednesday afternoon.
Yes, this photo only gives you a view of four sections of Hoffheinz, but they are fairly representative of overall attendance at the game; the seats directly in back of the U of H bench were more densely filled, but saying that there were even 1000 people in the place would be stretching it. But 4000? I don’t think so.
back to my regularly scheduled snow.
