The guys aren't the only ones swinging bats in the spring. You can follow the squad throughout the season and even get the latest on recruiting.

#559615 We will open season in February in Mexico, playing 5 games. Our opponents are:

BYU, Notre Dame, Duke, Baylor and Washington. This is excellent opportunity to build a good RPI to start season.

Don´t get me wrong, I like that we are doing it, but the reality is it could also be an excellent opportunity for multiple butt-kickings. I think 3-2 would be a great result against that field.

#559637 For anyone who might be thinking about it; round trip airfare (from RDU) and a week´s stay in a 3 star hotel can be had for under $700. Closer to $600 if you are not particular about the lodging.

#559638 I'd like to think we can go 5-0 or 4-1 there, but 3-2 would be good start to season. Both non-conference and ASUN schedule this season will be tougher than 2018 schedule. But we should have better team on the field this season than last.

A win over either Baylor or Washington would be a huge upset. The others are winnable, especially Duke. BYU and ND were good, but not great, last year.

If I don't have other commitments, you will likely see me there. A&M is less than hour from my house.

As for PV, gorgeous city that is exceptionally cheap place to fly and stay. But keep your eyes open.

Yeah, changing planes is such a hassle, whereas THIS (X2) is a day in the park (actually about 8 days).

Add in the fact that your gasoline alone would cost more than plane fare, and that move would be pure genius. :roll:

#559781 Then you are driving through the heart of narco-violence on top of all of the other concerns by driving yourself. There is a reason those of us who know Mexico fly and ride motor coaches.

#559787 Considerably less narco-violence on that route and more Whataburgers. Being a BK guy I have a feeling you will find Whataburger to be an existential experience. The In N Out Burgers are a couple of hours west of College Station.

#559900 DQ is referred to as the Texas Stop Sign. But Whataburgers are what I suspect will get you smiling. I prefer Okie-based Braums and Cali-based In N Out Burger for chains in Texas. But Whataburger has a fanatical following down here.

Collie Station doesn't exactly have great BBQ like they have over toward Austin, but they do have chicken wing joint they consider to be mecca. If you make it down here, I'll try to meet up with you for the game.

#559913 Haters gonna hate. It is fast food and priced accordingly.

#559915 Cookout is better if you’re talking quality for the price point.

Del Taco was solid. Those were the two western chains we tried.

I’ve only had it once and I totally agree. There was nothing special about it.
