Of course A&M is the best coaching job in the country. The school has money but it never wins championships, so mediocre results are rewarded with multimillion dollar contracts. I’m sure Franchione and Sumlin agree....

I still think he is a solid coach. He inherited a team with limited talent for SEC standards and had some bad fortune. LSU, MSU, Rutgers, even A&M he wasn't far from getting the W.
He'll have to recruit very well to compete in the SEC. That is true for every coach....

That "decade before" was 25 years ago, but whatever makes it easier to accept your failures.
When A&M used to beat LSU everybody else did also. LSU has taken the 3 best A&M teams this century and beat them, 2 out of 3 times in laughable fashion. Aggies would have played in the NC had it not been...

Please stop calling them “Big” anything.
This is not a knock on JFF or Sumlin both are fine, just no one can overcome that level of mediocrity. Occasionally when no one expects anything they come up with a good non championships season, but when stakes are high they flop every time. Flame all y...

It was but A&M not even trying to run also made our run D look better. Give the D some credit for forcing those 3 and outs late. Without them Arkansas wins.
Overall I agree it was tense but...

They met expectations. It was not a magical season, but it was solid and LSU still is a relevant program at season's end.
Arkansas is not good but that game was the only dramatic game we won this year so it stands out.

| SEC Rant|| re: malzahn to texas?? - r2d2 on 11/25/13 at 3:46 pm|
Malzahn is very much an unproven commodity at this point. See Muschamps a year ago and now. Chizick was considered a great coach on this board circa 2010. At one point so was Houston Nutt. The Boise State coach is every bit as good a coach today as he was those undefeated or one loss seasons today...
