Ball State to Play at Texas A&M in 2015

Mark your calendars, Cardinals fans because the chirpers from Muncie are heading to SEC country to take on the Texas A&M Aggies in College Station, TX on September 19, 2015. The same Texas A&M Aggies who laud Kyle Field as one of the best home environments in all of college football. The same Texas A&M who gave us Johnny Football. That Texas A&M. Are you excited? I’m excited. I’m so excited… I’m so excited…. I’m so…. scared.

so-excited-so-scared-j-spano_o_GIFSoup.comThings I’m loving about this? The chance to see a game at a great stadium. The chance to take the OTP Circus to a new locale. The opportunity to introduce thunderous MACtion to a sorority population desperate for it. Bill Scholl is excited also, because the Aggies will be dropping $1.2 million for the Cards to roll in to College Station. That’s what we call “budget-making” money. However, if CPL and the Cards can pull off a W, then I hope they just sign over the big cardboard check to him directly. That is how they pay for these things, right? The lobbying machine for BIG OVERSIZED CHECK is a strong one.

If you miss the Cards in Texas, you can catch them in Chicago on September 26, 2015 as the Cards will travel to a road date with Northwestern. You’ve got a year and a half, folks. Work on your vacation requests, come up with an excuse, or plan on quitting your job. You’re not going to want to miss when the CPL Experience takes its show on the road. Chirp chirp indeed.

To give credit where credit is due, The Star Press threw this out as a blind item this afternoon but A&M officially announced it about an hour ago. Congrats to the boys from TSP for scooping OTP on something. Finally. Good job, good effort, boys. You didn’t get us on the Parrish firing, Lembo hiring, Hoke to SDSU story, or a whole host of other things, but with stick-to-it-iveness like this the print media business is sure to make a comeback.

  1. Well, in TSP’s defense, they can only print something once a day whereas you can publish something anytime lol. As for the 2015 season, I’m definitely looking forward to it. That gives us a year to really develop a QB instead of throwing a practical newbie into the fire right away plus we should still have plenty of weapons to make a legitimate threat…..to NW at least lol.
