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

BY foxsports • July 19, 2013

Kevin Sumlin didn't say much and he didn't need to. He let last season's result do the talking.

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.
