COLLEGE STATION -- It's near the end of Stephen McGee's last season at Texas A&M quarterback. Looking back, he says he'll mostly remember the bonding.
McGee has played a central role in the last three games against
archrival Texas, guiding the Aggies to upsets in the last two. But
his senior season has fizzled after he sprained his throwing
shoulder in the second game, and he's unlikely to see much action
when A&M (4-7, 2-5 Big 12) plays the fourth-ranked Longhorns (10-1,
6-1) on Thanksgiving Day.
Even if he doesn't throw another pass, his A&M legacy is already
cemented by how he's performed in the historic rivalry.
In 2005, McGee made his first start and held his own against
Vince Young in the Longhorns' surprisingly hard-fought 40-29 win.
In 2006, McGee ran for 95 yards in the Aggies' 12-7 win in Austin.
In 2007, he threw for a career-high 362 yards in A&M's 38-30
victory at Kyle Field.
McGee says no single play stands out from the games. Instead,
it's the faces of his teammates at pivotal moments that McGee says
will stay with him long after his playing days are over.
