Texas A&M Tackle Jermaine Eluemunor On Alabama: "No King Reigns Forever"

Alabama is a 19-point favorite against undefeated Texas A&M on Saturday, but Jermaine Eluemunor and the Aggies aren't counting themselves out.

As you'd expect, Texas A&M is using its massive underdog status as motivation for Saturday's trip to Tuscaloosa. ESPN spoke to Eluemunor, the Aggies right tackle, about the upcoming game, and he had a pretty great line about Alabama's status as the "king" of college football.

"Alabama's been the king of college football for a while now. But like I said before, no king reigns forever. Every dog has their day. I'm really excited and I know my teammates are really excited to get in there and show the country that we're not a pushover team and that we're here."

You have to respect the confidence from Jermaine Eluemunor and the rest of the A&M program, but it is hard to blame anyone for believing that Alabama will roll again this weekend. Last Saturday, the Crimson Tide went to Knoxville and beat the SEC East favorite Tennessee Volunteers 49-10. It is winning games by an average of 30.4 points per game. Only Ole Miss, which has been a menace for 'Bama in recent years, came within 19 points, falling 48-43.

Basically, it's not you, Texas A&M, it's Alabama. The Tide are unbelievable, and if you lose by 20 at Bryant-Denny Stadium, it just means the king stays the king.
