What's Sumlin doing to motivate Aggies for Alabama game?

During a Dallas A&M Club event Thursday night at Gilley's Dallas, the Texas A&M coach took questions from the crowd to cap the evening.
The question that received the shortest response was one about the Alabama football team hanging Texas A&M signs in their weight room, a little extra motivation from last year's 29-24 Aggies victory in Tuscaloosa.
When Sumlin was asked what he's been doing to motivate his players for this season's game against Alabama, Sumlin replied: "Same thing we did last year. That seemed to work."
The room went crazy and Sumlin smiled.
"Like Toney Hurd said, we got A&M stuff all over our weight room, too," Sumlin added.
Alabama finished the 2012 season 13-1, defeating Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game, 42-14.
Texas A&M hosts the Crimson Tide on Sept. 14 at Kyle Field.
