That's great, but A&M has oil money. They'll be able to keep him IF (huge if at this point) Oregon were to call.
Also, Oregon is not the better job at the moment. They're facing NCAA issues and will take a penalty. They are in the easier conference, but they've lost 1 game twice and watched an SEC team play for it all. A&M is trending as the better job.

Because people talk about them more? Thats not going to play a role at all in Sumlin's decision if he were to consider it. Surely he will instantly be at the program level he wants to be at with Oregon, and the ceiling you would say is a wild card depending on recruiting. Texas A&M still has some ground before they are at the level of Oregon but you know the potential for the ceiling of the program could be REALLY high IF they are able to out recruit all the other schools in the south. I think Oregon would have less competition for recruits out west than A&M in the south. I put a 0% chance of Sumlin ever going to Oregon either way.
