"Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

Gig'em Aggies!! BTCO'77HOO t.u.!!
OU fans will stay in Dallas and party up and drown their sorrows tonight and probably tomorrow too, but will be a surly bunch come Sunday morning for the drive home....
Most depressing stat of the night......all FOUR teams that beat my Horns this year lost in their bowl games..ouch
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
C S Lewis
Best team in the country right now - if there was a 2d half champion (or last 3/4 of the season champion), it's aTm hands (or Manz) down. Only "bowl" game I bothered to watch (well, a glimpse or two at Stanford to see if they were playing D like the other Crimson school who Shaw fashioned it after). Sumlin (and Kingsbury) did a brilliant job of making the Aggies a complete team - and from where I sit did it extraordinarily with Sherman the Accountant's players who went, what, 6-7 last year. Ol' Sherm really set a high bar for the bonfire out there that ran him out of town - just like he did flopping in Green Bay and on top of that having followed another coaching skunk, Fraudchione, to College Station, who'd really made a mess of things. So a salute to the Aggies, 2d half champion and probably ought to be ranked No. 3 when the final polls come out - and see you in September.

Johnny Football. I had my JF tee on last night. I was hoping the Aggies would win but never in my wildiest imagination did I expect it to be so lop sided.

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
He's almost freakish how he makes backyard moves work against D1 studs. In nearly 30 yrs of coaching High School football, I've seen quite a few studs, but none that baffle me any more than Manziel.
This win should really bolster their recruiting class!!!
We are only as good as those that surround us.
