The Aggies special teams units didn't have the best night. They missed an extra point and a field goal. But when they needed to put away the win, special teams coach Brian Polian had just the call. After the Everett interception, Alabama's defense stopped Texas A&M on three plays, forcing a punt on fourth-and-one. Well aware that McCarron had shredded LSU's defense on a game-winning drive a week earlier in Baton Rouge, the Aggies did not want to give McCarron the ball. "We can Bob him," punt team members told Polian. In Polian's parlance, a "Bob" is a double cadence designed to draw the punt return team offsides. Polian ordered the "Bob" and watched as the left side of Alabama's line jumped when they thought A&M would snap. Flags flew. The Aggies pointed at the Crimson Tide, and when referee Tom Ritter indicated the penalty was on Alabama, the Aggies celebrated. Swope grabbed Kingsbury and lifted him off the ground. The band played. The Yell Leaders yelled, and the rest of Bryant-Denny Stadium fell silent. When he returned to the locker room, Polian, who coached at Stanford in 2010-11, turned on his phone to find it flooded with text messages. "I've had that forever," Polian said. "About 20 Stanford kids texted me and said 'You Bobbed them!'"

Love it, great side story.
the special teams unit didnt miss shit. it was our head case of a kicker.
USMC- Breaking shit since 1775
the kid could win the Groza the next three years with the amount of talent he has in that leg.....of course he could fall off the precipice too with his lack of self-confidence.....it really is that fine of a line when it comes to kicking.
A&M should really pay for a professional kicking consultant to come and help the kid. We have a valuable scholly tied up in this kid and we cant risk having to use some another scholly on a kicker or try out a ton of walkons just to realize they, like bertelot, have the leg but not the mental confidence. Next year we will not be a surprise and everyone will be gunning for us. We need this kicking problem fixed.
