Texas A&M alumni react to 41-23 loss to Alabama
Texas A&M struggled on offense in its 41-23 loss to Alabama after throwing four interceptions, with three of them being returned for touchdowns. Texas A&M alumni weren’t shy on Twitter when expressing their disdain with the team’s performance after Saturday’s loss.
Former Aggie and NFL offensive lineman Seth McKinney voiced his frustration after quarterback Kyle Allen threw his third pick six, all but ending the Aggies’ chance at a comeback.
“Just a disgusting offensive display. Awful,” McKinney tweeted.
His older brother Steve, also a former Aggie offensive lineman and NFL player, couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
“Don’t think I’ve ever seen 3 pick sixes in a game #TAMUBAMA,” he tweeted.
Another former Texas A&M lineman and current Seattle Seahawks center Patrick Lewis also reacted to the third pick six by Tweeting out a single emoji.
Former Aggies defensive back and three-year NFL vet Jordan Pugh also showed his frustration with the Texas A&M offense, as he was critical of the play calling.
“We got to open up the offense @aggiefblife,” Pugh Tweeted.
Other former Aggies however, were pleased with some of Texas A&M’s efforts on defense. Texas A&M alumni and current Seattle Seahawks defensive back Steven Terrell was impressed by the play of Justin Evans. Evans laid down a big hit on Alabama running back Derrick Henry in the third quarter.
“He has been smacking people all game! lol,” Terrell tweeted.
After seeing Texas A&M lose its first game of the season, Patrick Lewis showed his continued support and optimism for his alma mater, implying that the season is far from over for the Aggies.
“It’s a marathon not a sprint! We’ll bounce back. Gig ’em,” Lewis tweeted.
