Actually we still control our destiny and that isn't going to change unless Texas joins the SEC (which will never happen) or the SEC starts sucking (which also isn't happening).
We have the money and exposure and location. Just have to win....

| SEC Rant|| re: 1.4 Billion reasons SEC CCG will not move so quit making threads. - aggressor on 12/5/14 at 8:58 am|
The only argument for moving the SECCG around is to expand the brand, esp if it is played in Texas. Having it in Houston would further solidify the town as an SEC city.
As of now Cowboys Stadium is the best facility for a major football game, even though they screwed up the SB ironically.

Honest answer for Tiger fans in College Station tonight. Attend the yell practice, it is a great tradition
I'm looking forward to it. You don't need a student ID or anything to attend?
There is a cost to attend Bonfire but Yell Practice is open to anyone. Be forewarne...

Midnight Yell is at Kyle.
If you are interested as well, Student Bonfire burns tonight at 8 off campus. It's not the same as the original but it is a pretty cool sight to behold.

Usually you can but it may be tougher to move around seating wise for this game, really depends on which section to which section. It's easy to get from the North to the East (Student side) to the South because they are all connected now, the West is still independent until next year. You can stil...
| SEC Rant|| re: What SEC area has the 2nd best BBQ? - aggressor on 11/24/14 at 1:44 pm|
The first question before evaluating BBQ to me is if the person evaluating it mentions sauce. If your BBQ requires sauce it is automatically disqualified as mediocre. Sauce in and of itself is not a bad thing but the meat must stand on its own whether it is brisket or pork or ribs (beef or pork). ...

[quote]Sumlin has done the exact same thing[/quote]
He has? Please show me where he told an EE kid 2 weeks before he graduated that his scholly is pulled and now he can pay for his own schooling for a FULL YEAR and then gray shirt. I mean unless Mullen changes his mind again of course.
| SEC Rant|| re: Mullen Burns Bridges with Texas High School Coaches - aggressor on 11/21/14 at 9:08 am|
Any way you slice it this was a crap move by Mullen. Even doing this a month ago would have been much better because now the kid is essentially graduating in 2 weeks and his HS team in playoffs. If he doesn't win this weekend he won't even have another chance for other college coaches to see him p...

I doubt Muschamp is the next DC simply because it means a lot has to happen. That said, he makes a lot of sense on both sides.
A&M would pay him premium dollars. Sumlin is an offensive guy so he would give him full control of the defense. Terry Price who is the DL coach (the only area that has...

It takes a whole new level of delusion to act as though Auburn was getting mistreated by the refs in the A&M game.
The holds on Garrett were downright comically bad. How often do you get a commentator and multiple journalists raving about lack of holding calls?
Williams clearly fumbled when...

Don't know that I would call Looch the "king of Aggie sunshine". He certainly is a glass half full guy but he also points out the negative. I think he picked us at 7-5/8-4 to start the season.
That said, his latest was probably the most negative article I have seen from him and he actually went...

Texas A&M has the 2nd Largest Endowment of any Public University. In fact, it grew $1.1 Billion last year ALONE to $8.7 Billion and change.
By comparison LSU's total endowment is $568 million.
So in other words, A&M could have BOUGHT the entire LSU System twice over on just the increase in ...

It's relative. We are a better D than last year but we also had nowhere to go but up. Our playmakers are almost all Freshman or Sophomores and they have beaten out a lot of Jr/Srs for play time or starting jobs. The big killer was losing 3 Sophomores to dumbassery as well as AJ Hilliard (another...
