The LSU Tigers quest for an SEC baseball title ended with today’s loss to Texas A&M. Suffice it to say, we’re sick of seeing our teams lose to the Aggies.
The 2023 LSU Tigers baseball team was a regular season juggernaut that came apart when games mattered. They failed to win the regular season SEC title and were eliminated from the SEC tournament today. LSU’s offense was non-existent against No. 10 Texas A&M. As a result; the Tigers dropped their must-win game to the Aggies 5-4.
We won’t bore anyone with the box score. However, we will join you in griping about another significant sports loss to the Aggies.
Losing to the Texas A&M Aggies is never acceptable. It wasn’t acceptable when LSU football dropped their final regular season game at College Station 38-23. Moreover, letting the agriculture academy potentially end your baseball season this afternoon is unacceptable. Earlier in the season, Texas A&M handed LSU their first series loss of the college baseball season.
Ultimately, the LSU Tigers are killing us fans with the marquee losses to A&M.
Everything about Texas A&M’s sports programs is cringe. From their 12th-man mantra to nonstop storytelling about that ‘one time, with Johnny Football…,’ the Aggies are grotesque. We’re talking about a program that rallies around dudes in overalls, locking arms while their leader ad-libs terrible jokes about opponents. What’s worse is Texas A&M fans take pride in their bizarro, middle-of-the-night ritual.
“It’s an old tradition,” I recall one Aggies fan telling me on Twitter regarding their Midnight Yell. And he’s right; the Midnight Yell is a tradition that started when calling a person a ‘yellow belly’ was edgy. Suffice it to say; some habits must die, especially the embarrassing ones.

Conversely, the Texas A&M sports universe is currently within their right to yell at midnight in our collective faces. We deserve every bit of it until the LSU Tigers get it right and get back to beating the future farmers in all major sports.
The LSU Tigers are likely headed to the College World Series Regionals despite today’s loss. Therefore, the Bayou Bengals have time to wake up their offense and rediscover bullpen reliability. However, anything short of a College World Series win is a failure for a team that spent most of the regular season as No. 1.
As for Texas A&M, they need to go away.
