| Texas A&M Sports Board|| What Are Your Favorite Professional Teams? - cardboardboxer on 3/14/14 at 7:12 pm|
So yes this is a spinoff thread, but there are many professional sports fans here. So list off your favorite team in each of the Big 3 leagues and then throw in another appropriate team or three outside those based on who you like.
[b]As a changeup, please list the teams in the order you like th...

I love conversing with Arkansas fans and the Arky board has some really cool topics.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| Who is Your Favorite Team in Each Conference? - cardboardboxer on 3/12/14 at 8:02 pm|
I know we are all Aggies, but who do you like the most (or hate the least) in each conference?
Big 10: Michigan St. because I like their hoops team and I admire what they do on the football field. I also respect that they deal with one of two programs (USC being the other) that can really compare...
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| So Next Year is the Big Year - cardboardboxer on 2/20/14 at 9:45 am|
I keep having a feeling like next year is a big year for us:
-It is Sumlin's third year, and those are traditionally big for us with coaches.
-Thanks to a stadium configuration we should set SEC and state attendance records that will last for decades.
-We are pursuing a crazy talented rec...

| SEC Rant|| Protest for the New Rule - cardboardboxer on 2/14/14 at 9:30 am|
So the huge advantage of the HUNH is that defensive coaches cannot analyze the plays coming at them and call correct counter plays for each lineup. Instead they have to depend on the player knowing what to do in a short period, which is a disadvantage. So why not protest and refuse to huddle?
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| Favorite Hypocrisy/Irony/Etc. of a Rival? - cardboardboxer on 2/10/14 at 7:03 pm|
For me its the sip "you are not the rival OU is," but they call their fellow Big 12 teams Bible Aggy, Sand Aggy, Corn Aggy, etc.
Second to that is the Arky fans who quote the all-time record not realizing they are basically pointing out their SEC move killed a Top 15 program.
| Texas A&M Sports Board|| Cheers to Us!!! - cardboardboxer on 2/10/14 at 2:15 pm|
So I was just noticing recently that we have a very nice mix of regular Aggie posters on Chicken's set of sites. Not only do we have really good discussions and info on this forum, but anytime something troll pops up on tRANT an experienced poster jumps in with a nonsense response to debait the hook...

| SEC Rant|| Does the SEC Brand Benefit Your Team? - cardboardboxer on 12/31/13 at 10:32 am|
After reading dozens of threads about SEC loyalty and the debate over rooting for SEC teams, I think I spot a pattern. Those whose teams are helped by a strong SEC brand, seem to root for SEC teams. Those whose teams don't benefit from a strong SEC brand, or just feel like they don't benefit, don't ...

| Texas A&M Sports Board|| Who Wants Sumlin Gone? - cardboardboxer on 11/20/13 at 4:02 pm|
Personally the thought of Sumlin to USC triggers my BAS worse than anything I have ever experienced.
But I have a friend who says "Good, I don't want a coach who can't put together a decent defense! I don't want a coach who might leave us for USC or the NFL! Give me Chad Morris and a top DC inst...

| SEC Rant|| LSU is Better Prepared For The Future Than Alabama - cardboardboxer on 9/5/13 at 7:26 pm|
LSU has recruited against and beaten HUNH and spread offenses for years. Might be best defense in the nation against such attacks.
Meanwhile Saban loses to Utah, UF, A&M. He recruited to play old school football and the SEC is changing at break neck spreed.
LSU is prepared for what they knew w...

| SEC Rant|| So Did Arky Get it Right, and Tenn Got it Wrong? - cardboardboxer on 2/14/13 at 11:44 am|
Arky and Tenn basically handled the problem of losing a coach late in the hiring cycle completely differently.
Arky gets a temp guy, who screws up badly, but the screwup is limited and the position wasn't damaged so now they have a real coach and hope for the future.
Tenn outright hires a guy ...

At his old job his seven recruiting classes averaged a rank of 48.7 and topped out at No. 34 in 2007 according to the Rivals.com rankings.

| SEC Rant|| Which football program will be better the next 25 years: Texas A&M or Arkansas? - cardboardboxer on 12/27/12 at 10:18 am|
[b]Case for Texas A&M[/b]
Has a Heisman winner on the team for three years.
Has a larger alumni base and student population.
Is fed by a larger population base.
Is closer to elite talent.
Is about to have a top 3 SEC stadium.
Will have a more relevant rivalry week game.
| SEC Rant|| Most Unusual Fanbase? - cardboardboxer on 11/14/12 at 1:40 pm|
Time for the much more interesting question:
What fanbase is the most unusual?
I would say A&M is a clear winner as we are the weirdest overall, but unfortunately too much of our fanbase are just overly-polite, stick-in-their ass, Romney voting conservative types living in the Burbs.
| SEC Rant|| The Spread is About to Spread Through the SEC - cardboardboxer on 11/12/12 at 3:17 pm|
Following A&M's success this year, I fully expect the non-elite SEC teams to switch to a spread offense or to hire coaches who runs a spread offense ASAP.
As we saw on Saturday, the spread allows teams with less defensive talent to compete. It will win you a game every now and that you should not...

Auburn is in a better place for recruiting, but has to deal with Saban's ownership of their state.
Arky has more money, but couldn't buy a top 5 recruiting class.
I think I would pick Auburn, if only because their alums show they have what it takes to win...

| SEC Rant|| I think Mizzou is screwed worse than Arky. - cardboardboxer on 10/5/12 at 6:19 pm|
Arky sucks because their once in a lifetime coach, who did well in the SEC, messed up off the field.
Mizzou has their once in a lifetime coach right now and he doesn't have what it takes to beat SEC programs.
Therefore Arky's ceiling is higher, and Mizzou is fricked because their best isn't go...
