[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...
| SEC Rant|| re: Does A&M regret leaving the Big 12. - aggressor on 10/27/14 at 7:53 pm|
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 ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Why does A&M continue to use the young excuse on defense? - aggressor on 10/17/14 at 12:04 pm|
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...

There is some quality melt on this thread.
Kenny has had a couple of rough outings and he may not be the long term answer but he is learning. You simply can't compare the old Tech offenses or certainly Texas HS football to the types of defenses Kenny is playing against. Experience matters. I...

All indications are that Mom likes Sumlin as well, she just likes sip and Charlie better. Thus I don't think there is an "I hate Aggy" situation. It's pretty clear Malik likes A&M better and all his boys are going to be Aggies.
Be nice for Bob to go ahead go Barry Switzer and "hang half a huner...

If there was ever a year where it is a crap shoot to predict who wins the West at this point it is this one. I could even see LSU getting their sea legs and winning out.
I think you will end up with at least 2 teams with 1 loss, just too rough to expect teams to be able to stay up for so many to...

[quote]State's lines on both sides are very good. Great DL depth. Solid secondary. Can run the ball. Can pass the ball. I think State wins this one and the Aggie fans remember they are just another average SEC team.[/quote]

A&M can only carry Arkansas so much. You had the crazy FSU/NCSU game going on as well and the Texas game was on at the same time which split up some of the casual fans in Texas. FWIW though they actually broke away from the Texas game in Austin to show the end of the A&M/Arkie game just to show ho...
