I think it clearly is. The connection with Nike makes it better.
People are so quick to look at A&M this year jump to too many conclusions. If you look at A&M over the last 20 years, you'd have a different opinion.
If 4 years from now, A&M is a top tier SEC school, it will be because Sumlin (or some other coach) has developed it into one...not because the program is inherently at that level.
I agree with this too.
I would think it might come down to what motivates Sumlin. Is it where he lives, is it winning championships, is it money, is it getting to the NFL?
His system, as it is run now, is going to do much better on the West coast. He's going to probably have Manziel for only next season. Hard to figure that he'd leave now, but long term, he may have an eye out there.
Let him run the gauntlet here one more season, even with the likes of a Manziel, and I think things may become a bit more clear.
