re: MSU Boards are saying Stricklin has taken the Florida Job - twk
[quote]Jason Cook will likely be pursued as new AD at MSU. Aggies, how do you like him? [/quote] If Stricklin does leave, Jason would be kind of a no-brainer. He's probably ready for that job. Maybe he gets some experience at Starkville and comes back when Woodward leaves. While Jason is a Bulldo...

re: Finebaum vs. Pollack, Pollack has issue with Finebaum - twk
I don't know about the rest of their facilities, but the Coliseum is a dump in desperate need of renovation, and the school is located in a very bad part of town. Helton gets paid $3.8 million, which certainly isn't top tier, and all the Pac-12 schools have a reputation for being cheap when it comes...

re: Which SEC stadium has the best parking/traffic set-up? - twk
I've been to all the West venues, but not the East (Missouri back in the Big XII days is the only one--going to USC in 2 weeks). We parked over by Toomer's corner and had zero problems with traffic at Auburn on Saturday. Bama in 2012 was horrible; in 2014, it wasn't that bad. I'm guessing that...

re: How were fans for those of you who went to, or hosted, games this week? - twk
I had nothing but positive interactions with Auburn fans. Not sure what you are wanting with regard to BBQ--for us to bring it from Texas? Not happening if you fly. For us to tell you how good pork smothered in sauce is? Well, if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Great hospital...

re: LSU vs A&M no longer on Thanksgiving Night at Kyle - twk
[quote]I litterally do not know a single season ticket holder that wanted that game to stay on Thanksgiving. It made perfect since with Texas 90 miles away but makes no sense with an opponent 350 miles away.[/quote] First off, I'm fine with playing on Saturday, but preferred Thursday to Friday afte...

[quote]Am I the only one who thinks that conference championships from other conferences don't mean jack when compared to other SEC teams?[/quote] It is a little bit like comparing apples to oranges, but not necessarily for the reasons you think. On the one hand, you have to keep in mind the diff...

re: Top 10 Fight Songs - twk
[quote]Their actual fight song is really good. One of my favorites. Not sure why they insist on playing Rocky Top so dman much.[/quote] Agree. I can hum the tune for everyone in the SEC but Vandy, Ole Miss, and USC. Tennessee's actual fight song is a pretty catchy tune--I seem to recall hearing it i...

re: Why do some want the SEC to expand? - twk
[quote]If some other conference decides to go super conference and have 16+ then the SEC will try to keep up and out do them. Let's hope it doesn't happen.[/quote]Why would the SEC go to 16 just to get to 16? If there were two game changers out there, they might think about it, but, in the current l...

re: Aggies, when did Kyle Field get rid of the track? - twk
The reason A&M's persisted so long was that we built a permanent 32,000 seat horseshoe around the track in the late 20s. Most of those other schools started out with smaller stadiums that only had sideline seating, and ended up doing away with the track when they constructed permanent endzone seatin...

re: Houston to the BIG 12 all but a done deal now - twk
[quote]So since the [quote]President of Texas[/quote]supports the conference considering UH, it's all but a done deal?[/quote] Knowing Big XII politics, probably so. Texas, up to this point, has been an implacable foe of expansion. For them to come out and support an expansion candidate pretty mu...

[quote]Saban is setting these guys up for failure. If these guys weren't already cocky from being big time athletes, I can't imagine how they feel now.
