It has been one of the most disappointing seasons ever for Texas A&M football. The excitement at the beginning of it all has not only been crushed by the end, but it has also been ground into the dirt and stomped on a few times.
The announcement of A&M's move to the SEC has kept some spirits high in Aggieland. Just knowing that the Aggies' undeniably lame tenure in the Big 12 will all be over in 2012 (the coincidence of it being in '12 is too fantastic) is a comfort for future seasons to come.
In this season, the Aggies have fallen five times by close margins, losing by a grand total of 17 points in those games. Of those five, one was in overtime by a touchdown, another in quadruple overtime by three points, and the other three by seven points together.
The disappointment of those five losses, along with the solid fall to OU in Norman, has left A&M with just enough wins to find itself in a bowl and a .500 regular season. For a team that is more than loaded with talent and started out the season ranked in the Top 10, ending it as the Aggies have is disgusting.
However, there have been some good moments in a season of letdown. We take a look at the Aggies' top five moments in the sun.
