Los Angeles (CBS HOUSTON) – The Texas A&M Aggies are getting ready to kick off their season against one of the best quarterbacks in the country in sophomore Josh Rosen of UCLA. They are also hosting the Bruins at the completely renovated Kyle Field in College Station which will pack in 100,000 maroon and white supporters o n September 3rd.
In LA on Tuesday, Rosen said the noise shouldn’t be more difficult than other smaller crowds.
While still under some renovations, Kyle field impressed Alabama head coach Nick Saban last year.
“You talk about loud. You talk about affecting the game,” said Saban on the show, via the Austin American-Statesman. “I mean, their fans really did affect the game, and it says a lot about our players to keep their poise and focus.
“You know, this is the first place we’ve played for a long, long time, that we never got booed when we came out. First place. I’m telling ya. It’s a really nice facility. They had 105,000 people. And they cheered their tail off for their team. And they made it hard for us to play.
“I hope our fans can hear this because this is the kind of place we should be.”
When the Aggies fans saw this, they reacted exactly how you think they would.
Reporter Lindsey Thiry of the LA Times did clarify that his quote was meant as it being so loud after about 50,000 people you can’t hear anything.
The Aggies are probably still going to try to prove him wrong.
