I’ve seen ’em lose, and I’ve seen ’em win. And now I’ve seen ’em quit. The Aggies lost to the Ole Miss Rebels 35-20 in a game that was less close than the score indicated.
Fortunately, undergraduate football teams are normally permitted four Q-Drops during their collegiate careers. After using three of them to eliminate losses against the Tigers from last season, the Aggies have decided to Q-Drop their most recent loss.
When a student decides to Q-Drop a class, there is no longer an incentive for them to show up to lectures. It became clear that the Aggies were going to be dropping this game by the end of the third quarter and fans left accordingly.
“We’ve been preaching consistency in practice and our boys delivered,” Coach Kevin Sumlin said after the game. “They have consistently underperformed these last three weeks. Fortunately with the Q-Drop, our guys have a chance to start over fresh.”
While Q-Dropped losses do not affect the AP or Coaches rankings, the losses are removed from the official team scoreboard. Now, the Aggies can live in a blissful ignorance about their abilities for at least one more week.
Just be glad we scheduled a cupcake game in Tuscaloosa this Saturday.
