For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. It's science! It's science that directly applies to just about every play on a football field during a game. If a defensive end runs full speed into a quarterback from the blind side, that quarterback goes down and probably bleeds internally. If a team finally finds a quarterback that doesn't kill its chances of winning a game, it loses its leading rusher to a broken leg.
Well, at least that's how things seem to be working at Texas A&M. Ryan Tannehill replaced Jerrod Johnson this weekend and set a school record with 449 yards against Texas Tech, but now the Aggies get the news that they're likely to be without Christine Michael for the rest of the season. Michael broke his right tibia during the third quarter of A&M's win over Texas Tech.
Head coach Mike Sherman says that the injury will keep Michael "out for a while," and considering that the Aggies only have four games left this season, that while could mean the season. Though it is possible that Michael would be back for a bowl game, IF the Aggies can get to a bowl game. They only need one more victory, but considering the final four games include Oklahoma, Baylor, Nebraska and Texas , there are no guarantees there.
Wait a second. That game against Texas is in Austin, so that should be a guaranteed win for the Aggies. The Longhorns never win at home.
