Junior Damontre Moore, tied for third nationally with six quarterback sacks, looks to lead the Aggie defense against a suspect Arkansas offensive line.

New year, Moore sacks Junior end headlines potent Aggie defensive front Mark Dore

The Battalion The student section of Kyle Field knows of junior defensive lineman Damontre Moore. So do his teammates, the former students on hand and the media behind the press box glass. The nation knows Moore, as his name landed on the preseason watch list for the Ted Hendricks Award, given to the country’s finest defensive end. But in 2012, no one knows Moore the way opposing quarterbacks know him. Dating back to last season, Moore recorded 12 quarterback sacks in seven games. In three games this season, he sits in a tie for third nationally with six sacks and 22 tackles, eight for a loss. Moore has learned his lesson in two up-and-down seasons at A&M and said he knows consistency will play in more than gaudy early-season numbers. “[The statistics] give me a certain gratification, but at the same time I use it as motivation,” Moore said. “It’s only our third game, and I use it as motivation like, ‘Okay, I am there now but don’t look at it like that.’ It doesn’t matter where you start. It’s where you finish.” Moore’s maturity was questioned throughout his first two years as flashes of brilliance were mixed with lackluster efforts. Moore said the opinions had merit. “I slacked off enough as it is,” Moore said. “I was a little complacent, especially my freshman year. I was just being immature and didn’t have my priorities straight.” In head coach Kevin Sumlin’s first season at the helm, Moore said something had changed. “When Coach Sumlin first got here, he was telling us how much time we have left and I’ve only got two years

left,” Moore said. “I just got tired of losing. We’re just ready to prove people wrong.” Sumlin said Moore has gone through a maturation process. “Damontre is really growing up,” Sumlin said. “He’s been a guy who has always had talent. What I think you see is a guy who’s talented and a guy that’s growing up and understands his role. When you become a mature player, you understand that it’s not all about you.” Defensive coordinator Mark Snyder said Moore must continue to buy into the program’s schemes if he is to reach his potential. “Damontre’s effort has been outstanding,” Snyder said. “We talked about what was needed and what kind of player he could become. If he would just trust in us and do what we ask him to do, good things will happen.” Work ethic may have been a question mark of Moore’s at points, but there are some things no one has doubted of the athelete. “You don’t worry about Damontre Moore’s confidence,” Sumlin said. “I’ll put it that way.” After two years as a “joker” linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme, Moore has his hands to the turf before each snap in his new role as defensive end in Snyder’s new 4-3 system. The move is paying off in spades. In the opener against Florida — his first opener at the new position — Moore sacked Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel three times. Moore didn’t erupt out of high school; the talent didn’t immediately translate to tackles and playing time. When he first donned the maroon and white in 2010, a senior by the name of Von Miller was in front of him on the depth chart. All Miller did was earn an All-American nod that

season on his way to the NFL draft and a Rookie of the Year award. So Moore sat and he watched. Now, it’s his turn. Moore said he hopes to emulate the professional success Miller has enjoyed with the Denver Broncos. “I use [Miller’s success] as motivation every day,” Moore said. Miller may no longer be a teammate of Moore’s, but the connections between the two haven’t dried up. Moore said his relationship with Miller’s parents is particularly healthy. He said they have supported him throughout his career. “[Miller’s parents have] been telling me that they see some of his qualities in me and we’ve gone through some of the same hardships,” Moore said. “They are constantly reminding me, ‘this could be you. You could be better. Use this as your motivation and strive to achieve that goal.’” Days away from a home date with Arkansas, Moore said the Aggie defense and he are finished with the talk, finished with the losses and finished with the excuses. “We have to make a statement too,” Moore said. “We want to come in and prove that we can hang with the other SEC schools.” Moore said he is proud of the work he has put in to get to this point, poised as he is to stamp his name across stat-lines and the clipboards of NFL scouts. “I take pride in everything I do,” Moore said. “If you don’t take pride, what are you doing it for? We go out there every snap, every play. What you put on film is who you are. We have to have a sense of pride in that so we can show people that we aren’t who they say we are and we can prove people wrong.”

traditions The Crimson Tide Alabama During a 1907 Iron Bowl matchup against a heavily favored Auburn squad, the two teams were forced to play in thick, red mud — a bulk of which was caused by clay. When Alabama upset the Tigers with a 6-6 tie, the Birmingham Age-Herald sports editor Hugh Roberts coined the term “Crimson Tide” to describe the hard-nosed Alabama squad. To this day, Crimson Tide remains unique around the nation.

Tailgating LSU When all the cards are on the table, no university outside of LSU is better at tailgating. Tiger fans have perfected their technique through endless years of Mardi Gras (not to mention gridiron success). Almost nothing beats spending a Saturday evening in and around Baton Rouge experiencing the Cajun culture and the tradition of LSU football.

The Wildcat Mascot


Kentucky finds itself mostly barren of legitimate football traditions. Their mascot came about following a football game in 1909. After winning 6-2 over Illinois, the school’s military department head is quoted saying the team “fought like wildcats.” The name stuck.

The Gator Chomp Florida

As one of the most beloved traditions at Florida (and mocked across the country), the Gator Chomp has evolved into a highly recognizable signature of the southern football powerhouse. While at games, fans perform the “chomp” motion in rhythm with the band playing the theme from “Jaws.”

Pg. 3-09.28.12.indd 1

The 12th Man Texas A&M

Cockaboose Railroad South Carolina

Every Aggie has heard the legend. During the Aggies’ 1922 matchup with Centre College, a then national power, E. King Gill made his way down from the stands to suit up for the injury-stricken A&M squad. Despite head coach Dana Bible never entering Gill into the game, which A&M won 22-14, his dedication to the University to “stand by in case my team needed me” was enough to kick off one of the program’s most sacred traditions. Today, the 12th Man, represented by the nation’s largest student section, stands for every minute the football team competes on the gridiron, showing their preparation to enter the game on a moment’s notice.

While the Gamecocks are new to the national stage in terms of football prominence, their tailgating scene has always been refined. Sporting 22 luxury cabooses in the heart of Columbia, S.C., fans “railgate” before games. Debuting in 1990, owners of the cabooses have installed everything from satellite TV dishes to hot tubs, crowding hundreds of fans into the multiple decks each home game.

Calling the Hogs Arkansas

Since the 1920s, Arkansas has been engrained with the ever-recognizable calling of the hogs. Formed in a way many traditions are, Razorbacks say a group of farmers at a game first used the “call” to encourage a lackluster football team. Now, the “Woooo, Pig, Sooie” is distinguishable from any cheer in the nation. Aggies, having shared the Southwest Conference with the Hogs, know of the chant all too well.

The Cowbell Mississippi State The essence behind Mississippi State’s cowbell remains a mystery to this day with multiple rumors circling the tradition. The noisemaker has been a staple of the Bulldogs for decades, ranging back to the late 1930s and early 1940s. The most popular story around the cowbell remains that, during a home game against rival Ole Miss, a cow wandered onto the gridiron. After Mississippi State won, students adopted the cow and began bringing its bell to the game, introducing the unique tradition to the conference.

Between the Hedges Georgia Built in 1929, Sanford Stadium has grown to the seventh largest venue in the NCAA. Hosting the Georgia Bulldogs six times during the season, one of the nation’s most devastatingly loud venues owns a specific and extremely unique nickname: “Between the Hedges.” Sanford has owned the title since its construction in 1929, boasting privet hedges around the edges of the field. Now, the SEC East power works to bring home a second consecutive division title en route to a national championship.

The Anchor Vanderbilt Vanderbilt has never boasted a solid winning tradition in the SEC, providing instead a strong backbone for academics and the arts. Understandably, any football tradition is, more or less, recent. The Anchor was installed under head coach Bobby Johnson, who spent 200210 with the Commodores and represents strength, support and unity. During his tenure, the anchor traveled with the team to every game, but after renovations in 2011, rests in a case in Vanderbilt’s football locker room.

page 3 9.28.2012

The Volunteer Navy Tennessee During each Tennessee home matchup over 200 boats crowd the girth of the Tennessee River to park outside Neyland Stadium. The tradition began in 1962 when former Volunteer broadcaster George Mooney parked his vessel on the banks of the river while he entered the stadium to do his radio play-by-play. Tennessee remains the only SEC university with this capability, being the only program that built its stadium adjacent to a major body of water.

The Grove Ole Miss

Although the Rebels have recently fallen into the conference’s football cellar, one wouldn’t be hard-pressed to find that a majority of fans are unaware of their gridiron misfortune. Due in most part to the infamous Grove, a tailgating legend located in the heart of Oxford, Miss., fans have grown steadily oblivious to what occurs in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. A 10-acre plot of land reserved for tailgating is populated from the break of dawn until midnight during game days.

War Eagle Auburn

Similar to “Howdy” at Texas A&M, at Auburn, the greeting is “War Eagle.” Legend goes that during an Auburn-Georgia matchup in 1892, a Civil War veteran stood in the crowd cradling an injured eagle he found on his way to the game. During the closing minutes, the eagle broke free and soared around the stadium “leading” Auburn in the final drive to a score and victory. The battle cry is a now a representation of the fighting spirit of the university.

The Granite M Missouri In August before every season begins, fans and volunteers from the University of Missouri paint the granite rocks at the north end of Memorial Stadium. The giant, 95-foot tall letter has been annually whitewashed since 1927, helping the recognizable symbol of Mizzou stand out during every home matchup of the season. As the Tigers continue to transition into their conference, the Granite M will continue to remain a symbol of strength and unity for the program.

as an alarm clock! Saturday 12-3

The Texas A&M football team is looking to keep momentum going this weekend as they face off against Southeastern Conference rival Arkansas. After concluding most of their non-conference schedule, with only a game against Sam Houston State slated for November, the Aggies will now enter the thick of the SEC competition. After a heartbreaking loss to Florida to open the season, the Aggies have now put forth two consecutive winning efforts with a 48-3 rout of SMU and a 70-14 victory over South Carolina State. While many critics will point out the competition level is nowhere close to that of the SEC, the Aggies have started to buy into head coach Kevin Sumlin’s offensive system. Also under the watch of defensive coordinator Mark Snyder, the defense has shown improvement game by game with stellar play from defensive end Damontre Moore, who is tied for third in the nation with six sacks. “We’re better on the perimeter, just on numbers alone, but the speed will pick up dramatically from the last week,” Sumlin said. “There’s a reason that they’re preseason No. 8. They’ve got a lot of great skill: big offensive linemen, one of the best quarterbacks in the country.” The challenge this week is the A&M defense going up against Arkansas offense. While the Razorbacks have had their share of troubles this season, their offense posses a threat with senior quarterback Tyler Wilson returning back to form after suffering an injury in a game against Louisiana-Monroe. “Just because they have lost three games in a row, it doesn’t mean we can look at them as if they are not a traditional

Arkansas team,” Snyder said. “We have to prepare as if they are a very good team, which they are.” The big story coming out from the weekend matchup against the Bulldogs of South Carolina State was the record night for punt returner and defensive back Dustin Harris. Harris was named SEC Co-Special Teams player of the week with a 96-yard punt return for a touchdown along with 246 punt return yards. “My goal was just to play the game,” Harris said. “I go out there every time to just get the ball back to the offense. That’s my main goal. I had no idea about the record until it was posted on the big screen.” The Aggies hope their special teams continue to give them a boost as the matchup against Arkansas returns to Kyle Field after being in Cowboys’ Stadium the past three years. “[Cowboys Stadium] is a good stadium, but it’s kind of like a monkey on our backs,” said senior wide out Ryan Swope. “It’s a new experience there. I would much rather play at Kyle Field. We have a great atmosphere at home and we’ve got the 12th Man there with us.” The most talked about story as the Aggies made their transition into the SEC was how their veteran offensive line,

led by juniors Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews, would hold up against the physical and violent defenses. For most of the season, it seems like the line has needed time to start creating the push to establish the running game. The offensive line will need to keep improving as the SEC schedule starts kicking up. “Our running game hasn’t been great so far this year,” Joeckel said. “We’re still trying to work some things out. I think we’re getting better every single week with the running game.” The Aggies will be seeking revenge after losing to the Razorbacks last year 42-38 with Tyler Wilson scorching the Aggie defense for 510 yards and three touchdowns. A&M senior running back Christine Michael rushed for 230 yards on 32 attempts and three touchdowns. With that game in a neutral site, the Aggies are hoping to seek revenge for a game they believe is theirs. “I’m excited,” Swope said. “I know the [12th Man will] come out ready and stand the whole game and give us that great support that we need. I think it’s an advantage to have Kyle Field up behind us.” The Aggies will face the Razorbacks this Saturday at Kyle Field. Game time is set for 11:21 a.m.

Group works to raise Islamic awareness Special to The Battalion Many religions have a central figure who is highly looked up to, whether it be Jesus Christ to Christianity, Moses to Judaism or Muhammad to Islam. The Muslim Students’ Association is presenting Islam Awareness Month, a series designed to clear up misconceptions people might have with the religion of Islam. It also designed to open channels of communication through a diverse group of faculty and students. The Muslim Students Association collaborated with the Islamic Community of Bryan-College Station Thursday in Rudder Tower and discussed the prophet Muhammad and his importance to people of Islamic backgrounds. The key speaker, Anwer Ahmed, professor of accounting in the Mays Business School, shared his knowledge on Muhammad and his importance to not only himself, but to the second largest religious group in the world: Muslims.
