As if Alabama head coach Nick Saban didn’t already have enough motivation to get some payback on Johnny Manziel and the Aggies this year. Tonight at the Brazos County A&M Club Coach’s Night, according to Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News, Texas A&M AD Eric Hyman made a joke about “controlling the Tide” in a reference to last year’s big victory over Alabama.
Hyman: ‘What do the moon and Texas A&M have in common? We control the Tide.’ Told Sumlin he wants to say same thing in a year.

Whoa. Nothing like a good moon joke.
I’m sure it got a chuckle out of the crowd, but you can imagine how Saban and his colleagues will take this – as a slap in the face. If you weren’t already excited for the big matchup on September 14th, you’ve got even more reason to be now.
Oh, and it appears that A&M fans are now making t-shirts featuring the phrase “We Control The Tide”, too.
