The Texas A&M Aggies shocked the Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa last season in a performance that was a big reason for Johnny Manziel winning the Heisman Trophy, and the Aggies don’t appear ready to let go of that victory anytime soon.
During a Brazos County A&M Club Coach’s Night event, Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman decided it would be an appropriate time to jump in on what seems to be the trend and take a shot at the Crimson Tide.
So what was the joke that took aim at the defending back-to-back national champions? From AggieSports.com:
Eric Hyman to the crowd at BCA&M Coach’s Night: “What does the moon and Texas A&M have in common? We control the Tide.”

Surprisingly, the joke was kind of funny. It wasn’t laugh out loud funny — unless you are a lunar nerd — but it certainly deserves a chuckle.
While it is fun to poke at Alabama and hold your victory over their head, it doesn’t really hold much weight when they went on to win the national championship. Texas A&M has been talking a big game since the win, so they better back it up this year or they deserve the retaliation that they will get from ‘Bama fans.
