Something very important to remember is we went after Elam hard with a scholarship offer over Hill and Boyd. Our staff rated him above them and because of that we slow played Hill and Boyd.
Will it cost us in the end? Maybe, but both of them are in the category of "really good" prospects and no...

[quote]I remember having a convo with a few SEC fans recently. Couple of Aggies too.
Non aggies all agreed that Baylor has been turning out a pretty good program recently. TCU could be an elite program.
All the aggies said that they would get stomped in the SEC.

What is there to understand? Muschamp was a lame duck for 2 years. How do you recruit as a lame duck???? During that time FSU had Winston, and 1 NC, and went to the playoffs.
We have had no O for 4 FREAKING years, and no attention to offensive players. Think about that- 4 years.

Yes, but we have gotten a lot richer since then. Essentially A&M's Endowment grows at the pace of a Mississippi school's entire endowment every 3 months or so at the rate of about $6.7 million PER DAY. We grew by the size of UF's Endowm...

I mean I know UF has a new coach and everything but it's a week before signing day and you have 10 Commits and 1 4 Star? How is that possible with the resources you have and being the Flagship school in that state? I can see how FSU may be getting some kids from you right now but no other program ...

The timing is actually perfect then as Boyd now as Boyd is certain to change his mind again by tomorrow. The real issue is he will likely still change it a couple of times between tomorrow and NSD in spite of his announcement. :lol:...

Not denying the importance of recruiting at all, it's the lifeblood of the program. I'm just saying my personal interest in watching the sausage getting made is dropping fast. Just let me know when it is over and I can look at the class and evaluate.
It's actually similar to the Tech game in 20...

One thing is certain, is that if recruiting keeps up at this pace of stupidity where 17 year olds are just trolling everyone and changing their minds every 10 minutes for attention I'm going to go old school and just wait until signing day and look at who actually faxes in a LOI inste...

Actually the contract is definitely an issue for Sumlin. Essentially 2016 is the key year because the way his contract was structured it has clauses making it very expensive and difficult for either side to get out of it before then. A&M did this because they wanted to make sure they had Sumlin se...

Ah, forgot about Little. I do recall hearing Texas fans calling Murray all kinds of creative racial slurs back in the day though.
The infractions were actually never proven and the charge that they got us on was "lack of institutional control" with lots of smoke but no fire. Was A&M cheating? ...

Texas also has 5 different medical branches (most notably MD Anderson) as well as 2 other emerging schools in South Texas that get a piece.
If you are arguing that when all is said and done that the Austin campus gets a bit more than A&M then that is correct, the point though is the gap isn't nea...

Silly horns talking out of their arse as usual.
The A&M System only has 4 schools that receive PUF money and only A&M has any real size. The others are Prairie View, Tarleton State, and A&M Galveston (which is an Annex of the A&M Main Campus).
Texas on the other hand has to split their 2/3 sha...

The LHN is one of the best things to happen to A&M. It gave us a path to the SEC. It makes sure that the sips play 3 games a year and have all of their coaches shows on a network no one sees. It is a huge detriment to the rest of the BDF and virtually guarantees that it will stay #5 amongst the P...
