It helps your recruiting rankings when an alumni owns the company making the rankings. While Texas still hasn't developed what they've signed, their classes were more overrated than underdeveloped....

I refuse to watch anything on ESPN outside of live events and college Gameday, The talking head shows, including Olberman and Cowherd are part of the current problem with sports media (and media in general) where a 24 hour news cycle just beats stories into the ground. When there isn't a story th...

[quote]Isn't there a rule about contact between a prospect and a coach at a football game? I seem to remember Urban having to report a violation for talking to a recruit before a game. [/quote]

I mean does it matter? They are playing a bunch of crappy teams and would NOT deserve to be in consideration for a playoff spot over a power 5 team that played 7-8 teams better than the best team they played....

[quote]And even with all of that success, your fanbase is just as ridiculous and insecure as ours and I will never understand that[/quote]
I think you might be jaded by the people who post here. You're going to have a higher concentration of LSU fans simply because it's attached to an LSU site. ...

[quote]Sure. But a LSU fan making that comment is the definition of the pot calling the kettle black [/quote]
That doesn't mean the kettle isn't fricking black though. As LSU fans we at least have the 2 recent national championships to kind of satiate our appetite for self-loathing. As an A&M fa...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Would you trade Charles and Jeffery for Julius Thomas and L. bell? - TheRookbird on 9/8/14 at 3:21 pm|
Who is your TE and what are your WRs?
In a vacuum it's pretty even but Week 1 will probably be the best games Thomas and Bell both have.
Personally, I don't like Jeffery and feel like he was being over drafted based on his production in games without Cutler at QB so I might be inclined to get ...

How much more can we add to the SEC bottom line with merchandise sales, away game ticket sales, etc. [/quote]
While that might be the case, the main impact is in the SEC Network footprint and you can attribute the state of Texas directly with Texas A&M's additio...

[quote]It's kind of the feeling I took from the interview with the comments about it being best to commit early if you are a QB. Obviously if you are a worthy QB you aren't afraid of another commit taking your spot at the table. [/quote]

| SEC Rant|| re: Was adding Texas A&M to the SEC a mistake? - TheRookbird on 9/8/14 at 2:55 pm|
How much additional money did/will the SEC network generate by including Texas sets within the "footprint"?
Calculate that and then you can find out just how much Texas A&M is worth to the SEC. My guess is that it's going to be a very large number, much larger than the 1/14th share they pull o...

[quote]They hired Strong because of his recruiting abilities. Texas will be fine despite a bad loss or five. [/quote]
Strong's recruiting abilities were centered around his connections to Florida. If you saw Texas' class after he was hired, his main commits came from players in Florida.
