re: ANY SHOT THE SEC TOURNAMENT STAYS IN HOOVER? - twk
[quote]I say it's better than a 50% chance it stays in Hoover with some guaranteed improvements. It fits the need better than any of the downtown/weekday games options. [/quote] Only the RV crowd think Hoover is a great venue. Anyone else that is coming from out of town would prefer a downtown pa...

re: Week 10 Baseball Polls - twk
I think things will sort themselves out, but imagine a scenario where A&M wins 2/3 (or better) against everyone including USC, but USC beats Florida, and MSU rolls through their relatively easy remaining schedule. It's not likely to play out that way, but in that scenario, you'd have a hard time cho...

re: WFAA: Manziel to be indicted - twk
[quote]All crimes require an indictment of presentment before they can move on to circuit court. Nothing strange about that. What is slightly atypical is he wasn't charged first.[/quote] In Texas, only a felony requires an indictment. Manziel might be charged with a Class A misdemeanor if they ...

re: A&M sweeps #2 Mississippi State in Starkville in front of over 33,000. - twk
[quote]im jealous of their baseball atmosphere. i seriously couldnt figure out if that smoke was artificial or a result of the constant BBQing, just coincidentally blowing into the camera view when state makes a play.[/quote]I guess it's nice for the folks out there chowing down on the BBQ, but the ...

re: Texas A&M tradition I thought was cool - twk
The other reason that RC stopped using the all walk-on team, besides some slipping results, was their participation numbers counted against the Title IX quota, meaning that it made it more difficult for A&M to comply with the gender equity requirements--if we had 20 walk-ons for the kickoff team, th...

re: Can Dudy Noble break 40,000 this weekend?.... - twk
Thanks. I was thinking more along the lines of where to park and such, given everything that will be happening on Saturday, in particular. Booked a hotel room in Columbus back around the start of the season, and have some GA tickets in hand....

re: Can Dudy Noble break 40,000 this weekend?.... - twk
How about some suggestions for the visitors on that subject? I've been to Starkville once for football, but it was a quick trip, and didn't involve much other than going to the stadium on a shuttle bus from downtown....

[quote]Am I right in assuming that Blue Bell will be packed tonight even if the weather is freezing?[/quote]Maybe. It's still going to be a little on the cool side (although I think the wind will be much less of a problem, and it really rips through the stands at Olsen), and I don't know how the lat...

re: Baseball RPI Rank and Scheduling - twk
[quote]Next year's schedule is better. In addition to the Houston tournament we have Maryland coming to the Box. And before anyone says anything, Maryland has been to back to back super regionals. Then we start a home and home with Texas the next year[/quote] Maryland is definitely a quality oppo...

re: How many SEC schools currently have season ticket waitlists? - twk
A&M sold out season tickets last year (probably will have a few unsold this year after all is said and done), but we don't use a waiting list--after the renewal deadline, available seats are filled using priority point rankings--the seats may be claimed by existing ticket holders who want to move up...

re: Ags - how has the local everyday dynamic changed in Texas with Big XII folks - twk
I don't live in a big city, but a town of 100,000 within spitting distance of the Red River--only 2 hours from Norman. Football is covered so much by the media that I have no trouble following what's happening with the Big XII, and the Big XII fans seem to have no shortage of info on what we're doin...

re: One month into Baseball season, how does the league look to stack up? - twk
Way too early to be drawing conclusions. All I can say about the Aggies at this point is that I think we're going to have the deepest bullpen we've ever had, but even in that area, there are question marks (Vinson was great as a set up man last year--not great, so far, this year). Starting pitching ...

re: Sources saying New Orleans trying to lure SEC baseball tourney to Zephyr Field - twk
[quote]People like to mention Memphis and Nashville, great stadiums, but they have practically zero RV space or hookups. The RV slots are huge for the tournament. The SEC sells out of them very quickly every year. There is very little chance the tournament moves to a park that isn't RV friendly.[/q...

re: Hey A&M, I have a Big 12 question - twk
UT and A&M were actively seeking a new conference home, and that search didn't include anyone else. When Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock (former Tech basketball player and Baylor law grad) got wind of what was happening, he used his leverage to force UT and A&M to take Baylor and Tech along with them. UH, TCU,...

re: Roll Tide! Bama is Latest King in SEC Facilities Arms Race - twk
Certainly going to be a nice upgrade for Bama. One question--what's the deal with having field turf in foul territory? LSU does this, too (and MSU?). Sure, it may be a little harder to keep it looking perfect around the plate, but I'd rather see some imperfect grass in this area rather than see t...

re: SECe Schools Excluding UGA, Would You Support Auburn to the East - twk
Not enough information to answer the question. Several variable I would want to know before giving an opinion (I'm assuming that Missouri goes West): 1. Are we maintaining an 8 game schedule? 2. Are we keeping permanent cross division rivals? 3. If yes to 2, who are the cross divisional opp...

re: Finebaum: Arky was 3rd Choice for SEC Expansion - twk
Schiller must be suffering from the early stages of dementia. Arkansas, Texas, and A&M all agreed that the SWC was a dead man walking and that they wanted out, but Texas wanted to go to the Pac-10, while A&M and Arkansas wanted the SEC. Arkansas didn't have any political impediments, so A&M and T...

re: Realignment? The talks are starting again - twk
[quote]The WAC did the pod set-up back in the 90s. You pair up different pods each year and call them "divisions". It's a loophole in the rule.[/quote] This. In a pod system, the divisions just change every year. The SEC doesn't want to go to a pod system because the transient nature of the div...

re: Based on Sankey comment B1G and SEC appear to be united - twk
I read an article somewhere that goes into more detail on the procedural aspects of the vote, but, IIRC, I believe that the vote this week requires a 2/3 super majority or something like that, but that the threshold might be lower at a later vote. So, I'm not sure that failing this week would kill t...
