This is good stuff Thrilla! I’m from Craig’s generation of Aggies. It seems like McNeil just came out of nowhere to be an all-time A&T great. Now I understand his story and I have a clearer picture of who Bill Hayes was as a coach and a man.
Man. I remember that Tennessee State Circle City Classic. I took my boys to that game and all they could talk about was #9. We have to find a way to reinvigorate that Blue Death MENTALITY. That was good stuff!
Great show guys, having my favorite defensive player from any team on any level and as many players that I’ve called my favorite Aggie, this is the one. I happen to be at the right spot one time when the team was coming through and shook his hand, a very wow struck moment for a fan like me. Would love to get a number 9 royal blue jersey, maybe they should start selling his jersey at the games.

His answer makes me think of Wallace Rosehill, back in 08’ ‘09, there were a lot of high powered Wing- T teams but Wallace’s had a beast defense, the front 4 would get down into what looked like a alligator position, and shut the legs of the offensive line and the linebackers would blowup all run plays, it was a beautiful thing to watch, and amazing to me the strength those. Kids had to hold that position before firing off!
