Seems so crazy to me, the seesaw from national title to a turrible to national title game again.
Meanwhile Alabama is going on a historic tear on the side, so this isn't like FSU diddling around in the ACC or tOSU in the B1G. Nick steals the spotlight and Chiz shite in the punchbowl on a rollercoa...
| SEC Rant|| Question for LSU Fans - RE: Chavis's Defense - cardboardboxer on 7/4/14 at 7:36 am|
LSU fans, I have to say I am amazed by LSU's defense. Not just because it beats A&M, but because LSU seems to have the only defense in the country (well them and maybe Stanford) that can consistently stop modern offenses.
Other praised great defense minds of the last five years- Nick Saban, Gary ...

Now that the SEC football national title streak is over, we can take time to look back and reflect on how amazing it was that so many different programs- UF, LSU, Bama, Auburn- contributed to that streak. And it made me wonder, what would it take for the rest of the SEC to win a national title? My l...

Now that we have had some time since his tenure, what do you think his legacy is? Aggies spit on the ground when you say Fran, but what about Sherm?
Some people give him credit for recruiting top players, but some don't like SI:

I mean, yall won the fricking SEC East year two and you would barely know that posting on here!
I was expecting an offseason of deserved Mizzou hubris but overall yall are pretty quiet.
If A&M won the West, they would shut the forum down due to the flood of shitty arrogant posters from Texags....
| SEC Rant|| Why is the UT AD So Poor? - cardboardboxer on 5/20/14 at 11:58 am|
[quote]Tennessee spent less on basketball in 2012-13 than DePaul did, according to Department of Education figures. (Just $4.8 million to $6.3 million for DePaul.) That’s not the commitment befitting a top job in the SEC, let alone the country. [/quote]

So what are your favorite all time tRant hooks? My top five:
1. Speedy in so many ways. I would list them all but it would be very Bubba from Forrest Gump.
2. How whenever I list my favorite team as the Saints, the gumps (how about that transition) think I am pure corndog instead of one that w...

Texas A&M has a branch in Qatar, the richest country in the world:

And before any of you doubt they are real Aggi...
| SEC Rant|| LSU to the Big 12? - cardboardboxer on 4/28/14 at 9:17 am|
This weekend made it clear- LSU's needs are not a priority for the SEC leaders.
What leverage does LSU have in the league office? Doesn't seem like any.
Meanwhile Big 12 leaders would bend over backwards to accommodate LSU because that would stabilize their conference.
There is no exit f...

Exhibit A: The Dooley hire which was a terrible mistake from the get go. I don't think anyone who actually knows football thought he would be successful. Should have gone the temp route when they got turned down a few times and waited a cycle.
Exhibit B: Cuanzo asks for more money, that he earne...

| SEC Rant|| Your Program's Most Famous Bagman? - cardboardboxer on 4/11/14 at 10:05 am|
One interesting thing about the article is the concept that bagmen are only known if they screw up. For A&M that is true, but I wondered if maybe in some historical context some SEC bagmen have a real legacy.
To answer my own question, A&M's most famous bagman was Warren A. Gilbert Jr:

So a good friend of mine who is a lifelong Cowboys fan told me the other day that after years of Jerry's incompetence (with no hope in sight) if they draft JFF then the Texans will be his favorite NFL team (at least until Jerry hires a real GM).
This does not apply to me as the Saints are my mai...

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...

-Thanks to a stadium configuration we should set SEC and state attendance records that will last for decades.
