re: Aggies: Hope you had a good time in Gainesville. Did we help you keep Sumlin? - twk
Had a good time. Will come back for baseball sometime (hopefully, y'all will have added some shade by then--football game was probably a lot more enjoyable than it might have been thanks to the evening start and nice weather). All the Gator fans we encountered were either very cordial, or indifferen...

re: A&M fans, how was Gainesville? - twk
It was a good experience. Everyone I encountered was friendl. We were just across the aisle from the students and the only problem that caused is that there were a few times that I was more interested in checking out the coeds than the game :bow:...

re: I enjoyed my time in College Station in 2012 - twk
Best part of actually going to the game will be that I don't have to listen to Beth Mowins doing the play-by-play on ESPN2. Looking forward to my first trip to Gainesville. :cheers:...

re: Will this be the final consecutive season that CBS chooses Alabama-LSU in primetime? - twk
[quote]CBS 2017 Schedule According to this, CBS has 3 double headers planned beginning the first weekend of November and ending on the third weekend. Only other game worth a damn on Nov 4 is Auburn vs A@M.[/quote] The prime time game will be Nov. 4. By contract, CBS must choose their doub...

re: How Many Of You Would Trade For Hurts? - twk
It's hard to judge Hurts. So much of playing for Saban is just game management--he doesn't turn the ball over, and that is more important than anything else for Saban. Could he be more dynamic in an offense where he was called on to do more? Who knows....

re: University of Texas student body held vote about bringing back A&M rivalry, 97% voted yes - twk
For the folks saying they used to watch this game, 90% of the time, that's because this was the only game in the time slot. The only way that happens now is if the SEC reconfigures the final weekend, which would also require Kansas to cooperate by playing Missouri. Bottom line: that's not happening,...

re: Closer game this weekend? Tide vs TAMU or UGA vs Dores? - twk
[quote]A&M will play Bama tough for three quarters in my opinion. If you're a gambling man you should take the points. I'm curious to see how many A&M fans have sold their tickets online and how much crimson will be in the stands.[/quote] Resale market isn't moving. There are actually tickets ava...

re: Travel safe, LSU fans - twk
I'm coming up next week, staying at Home2Suites. From looking at a map, my impression is that it won't be worth trying to find a parking spot closer to the stadium, and I should just simply walk (1.4 miles). What do you think?...

re: How Does A&M Stop the Bama Offense? - twk
It all starts at the Stella Hotel Friday night, as Bama player phone numbers are posted to Twitter and called continuously through the night. Then, Special Assistant to the Vice President of Group Sales, Dinesh Patel, cooks up a special pre-game meal with the help of the folks in the horticulture la...

re: A warning to Texas A&M and Auburn fans... - twk
[quote]UCLA debacle got the AD's attention. Vetting of candidates should be underway just in case. If Sumlin only loses to Bama and Auburn, but wins the rest of his games, then he won't be replaced. Anything short of that and he could be gone.[/quote] 9-3 would have Sumlin back, almost ce...

[quote] Don't think this is over yet. Michael Berry was talking about it on the radio this week. He said Texas Tech is claiming Leach can't sue them for breach because they are a state institution and you can't sue the state. Something to that effect. Leach may still get his money. Berry was slammi...

[quote]Conspiracy is also a crime. If these individuals are coordinating to commit crimes then that is a problem.

re: The FBI investigation: where is a federal crime involved? - twk
There is an article in today's Wall Street Journal discussing this subject. The gist of it is that the prosecutors are really pushing the envelope on this one, and might not prevail. However, even if they are all acquitted, the evidence gathered by the feds (if turned over to the NCAA) will be deva...

Probably false, at least not on the scale. Football may be a bigger sport, but for the shoe industry, basketball is king, and that's where thever money is. You'd never see a shoe company drop $100k on a high school football player to steer him to a school that wears your shoe in hopes that it will...

re: 2018 SEC Football schedule release on Finbaum at 3est/2cst time - twk
A&M has a seven week stretch where they play one game (Kentucky) at Kyle Field. Even if Arkansas was at home rather than Jerryworld (like it should be), we'd still be on the road for a month. I've never seen anything like that. Kind of works out for me because I was planning a Fall vacation next ye...

re: Why aren't we talking about the SEC's real dumpster fire? - twk
How old is the OP? I'm thinking mid-30s or younger because he doesn't seem to have a sense for how bad things really can get a Missouri. Their current state would have been celebrated as a major achievement 20 years ago. Missouri is capable of fielding a good program (or they were, before all the S...

Oddly enough, the exception at A&M this year will be Alabama. Lord Saban has decided to stay in town at the Stella (located at Traditions Country Club). Besides the distraction factor, the better hotels in most college towns would rather not have visiting teams, as it is less reliable business. ...
