It’s been over two months since Texas A&m pulled off its shocking upset over Alabama, yet the Aggies are still talking about it.
It was undoubtedly Texas A&M’s highlight of the season given the fact that the Aggies finished at just 8-4 on the year. To be fair, A&M doesn’t have much to hang its hat on at all following this season other than the win over the Tide.
Texas A&M defensive lineman DeMarvin Leal is still proud of his team’s upset and made a strong comment about the game on the ‘Tailgate‘ podcast.
“Most kids grew up wanting to play for Alabama, I grew up wanting to beat them,” Leal said.
There’s nothing wrong with that statement, but saying it over two months after the game as your team finished 8-4 on the year is a little much.
Alabama defensive back DeMarcco Hellams agrees.
Hellams roasted Leal for his comments, writing on Twitter “I dreamed of playing and winning natty’s.”
