re: Where would you move the SEC baseball tournament to? - twk
[quote]Why do you think Memphis would get it over Nashville? I know they have a great ballpark, but now Nashville does as well. Just curious[/quote]Just from looking at maps, seems to me that there are more hotels within easy walking distance of the ballpark in Memphis than in Nashville. There is a ...

re: Where would you move the SEC baseball tournament to? - twk
[quote]Nashville - that city that is opened 52 weeks a year? I can do that any of the other 51 weeks out of the year. I would rather walk the few hundred feet up the hill to that world class rv in the not so world class rv park and fire up the Weber (got to travel light, you know), throw on a nice s...

re: Question for TAMU baseball. - twk
1. Reserved seats I'm sure are sold out, but there will be tickets for resale on Flash Seats. If you don't mind GA, and get there early, that's also a possibility. 2. Nope. Used to be, but that area is under construction. If you want to drink while watching the game, you'll have to score some clu...

re: Question for Aggies re: a weird tradition - twk
[quote]So I know we've covered most of the weird aTm "traditions" on here (e.g. jizz jars, male spooning, etc) But today I found out about one that I think may have slipped through the cracks, apparently y'all don't use the term alumnus? apparently the preferred nomenclature is just "former student...

re: If any of the iconic SEC Stadiums ever get torn down, which will be first? - twk
[quote]There is none of the original stadium left, despite the fact that we have been playing on that spot continuously for a long, long time. The top two decks on the student side are the oldest part of the existing structure, but I don't remember when they were added. Since they are self-support...

re: 3 Tigers make Houston Classic All-Tournament Team - twk
The first year of the tournament, UH, Rice, A&M, Baylor, and Texas were all in the field (don't remember who the sixth team was). After that, UH and Rice were every year participants, but A&M/Baylor and UT/Tech would rotate, until the latest round of conference realignment screwed up schedules and r...

re: Details about New Dudy Noble Field Announced - twk
[quote]I think the LFL would be pretty cool, but man that seems like alot of money for a baseball suite. That's almost $2K per game. How far is it from the football stadium? Guess if you could stay there during football season as well it would justify it a little more.[/quote] I think that football ...

re: How are the expansion projects coming? Part II - twk
We're using steel rather than concrete, so it's going to go up really fast. I think they'll have all the steel in place by late March, if not before, and I would expect all the risers to be in place by mid-June. The real race will be to complete the finish on interior spaces like the suites and club...

re: Tanner: Year 1 SEC Network Payout to be at least $5 million per school - twk
Nobody has seen the deal, so we don't know what the agreement is with regard to start up costs, but I sort of think that the respective parties are bearing their own costs--each school is having to invest in on campus infrastructure (A&M is spending $11 million, for example) while ESPN had some cost...

re: Houston NCAA Baseball Classic - twk
Word to the wise: Minute Maid, while it is air conditioned, is not heated, since the Astros aren't playing during the time of year when that would be a concern. Even if temperatures are pleasant outside, inside in the shade it can be cooler than you would expect. Bring a jacket....

re: has aTm ever resolved Chavis buyout issue with LSU - twk
[quote]I am also curious if aTm put "the clause" in his contract stating that if Sumlin leaves his contract is not guaranteed.[/quote]No. In fact, I don't know of any school, other than LSU, who's done this. Either you give assistants a multi-year contract (which is rare), or you don't. As to LSU...

re: A&M's endowment is DOUBLE the rest of the west schools.......COMBINED!! - twk
[quote]I'd be curious to see how A&M's endowment numbers look for FY 2015 (which I assume is a 6-30 year end). I'm sure they won't be anywhere near underwater, but I bet they take quite a hit with the oil market tank job.[/quote] Price of oil should not have much effect on the value of the PUF (...

re: Interesting bit: Florida high scool players more potential than Texas - twk
That's long been the conventional wisdom about Texas players. One thing, though, with the move to the spread offense, and given the complexity of the QB position, Texas HS QBs aren't so much a finished product as they are three steps ahead of kids that come from less advanced programs--i.e, that ups...

re: ESPN to offer stand alone streaming service - twk
Ha, look at the package offered. Also, what percentage of the nation has high enough speed to actually be satisfied with the quality of a streaming video as opposed to the quality of satellite? I've got U-verse at home and not nearly high enough speed to rely upon streaming video. The US average is ...

re: So why did Pendergast remove himself from consideration as DC for LSU? - twk
[quote]Provide info on KevinSteele please[/quote] He was the head coach that took the Baylor program from below average to unbelievably awful. Lost his first game to UNLV when, rather than taking a knee to run out the clock, he ran a play trying to score a meaningless TD, only to have the RB fumb...

re: Did we ever get the real reason that Coach J Chavis - twk
[quote]LSU did not lose Chavis. If LSU really wanted him, a mere $400K or so would not have been a deal breaker. CLM's staff has consistently been one of the highest paid staffs in the SEC & in the country. There has been several posts in other threads that an issue has/had been simmering, in house,...

re: Did we ever get the real reason that Coach J Chavis - twk
Money was a factor, but the term of the contract was the primary reason. Most assistant coaches have only a one year contract, but top coordinators often get a two year deal so that they've got a year's pay waiting if the head coach gets canned. Means that they don't have to take the first job that ...
