re: TAMU will target Dabo Swinney if season goes South. - twk
That's clickbait from a Baylor turd with zero A&M sources. I could eat a box of Cheerios and crap out a story with more validity than anything this moron writes about A&M. :lol:...

re: Potential New Vandy Stadium - twk
The off campus part of this plan would concern me more than anything else, but land acquisition is always a concern for private schools. I do think that a small stadium with premium seating is probably what Vanderbilt needs. Baylor went in this direction (although they were moving from off campu...

re: SEC football stadiums and artificial turf - twk
[quote]I almost wonder if they actually save that much money. My high school (in Memphis) installed field turf in the mid 2000s and I believe recently replaced it. I feel like it costs close to a million to install field turf on a football field, and if schools are replacing them every ten years, is...

re: Who is making a gamedayroad trip this year? Where are you going and have you been before? - twk
Going to LA for A&M vs. UCLA and Gainesville for A&M vs. Floriday. Passing on Arkansas (can't stand Jerryworld), Ole Miss (been 3 times) and LSU (been twice for football and twice for baseball)....

re: Capacity of SEC Stadiums vs EPL Soccer Stadiums (OM Topic relief thread) - twk
Keep in mind that Premier League teams play a 38 game round robin (19 home games), so it makes sense that they have smaller venues (like with baseball)....

re: Which collapse was better? Bobby wrecking the hog or Freeze the escort? - twk
The visuals were better for the fall of Bobby Petrino...so far. :rotflmao: The hubris of Freeze was greater, however. Petrino never preached at anyone....

re: There is nothing more SEC than this story.Thank you, Ole Miss, for bringing back SEC pride - twk
[quote]Im still in awe of OM taking the stance of going down with the ship. They fired one guy which was the high school relations guy with the AD. They know they're dirty yet won't cut their losses and instead are choosing to go out in an ugly and embarrassing manner like Freeze. There will be more...

re: Freeze phone records question - twk
[quote]I suspect that was the time period before NSD when the alleged plan to plant stories with the media pointing a finger at Nutt happened.[/quote] I think this is correct. It was apparently sheer stupidity on Freeze's part (he was allowed to redact "personal" phone calls from the FOIA respons...

re: How Would a 13 Member SEC Schedule Play Out if it Came to That? - twk
It doesn't work. That's why we have Missouri. That's also one reason why the NCAA wouldn't seriously consider the death penalty, because the collateral damage to other SEC schools would be tremendous. ...

re: Who hates Houston Nutt more? Arkansas or Ole Miss. - twk
[quote]Why does Nutt even want to get involved in this mess - lawsuit, really? On what basis? He can't win this.[/quote] Depends on your definition of winning. If Freeze is forced to resign, Nutt will probably feel like it was worth it. As hard as defamation suits are, I feel fairly confident tha...

re: What will it take for Texas to play A&M again? - twk
[quote]Yep. Our schedule sucks. It would be much better with a big rivalry game against Texas A&M that can also be marketed as a Big 12 vs SEC matchup. This year's home schedule makes me want to weep. It blows.[/quote] I think that is the driving force that will get the two schools back on the sc...

re: Absolutely TERRIBLE calls that benefitted your team - twk
This is an interesting topic. It's hard to remember these things, unlike the bad calls that go AGAINST you, which linger forever. I can think of two involving A&M, and they weren't necessarily "bad" calls, just questionable. In 1986, A&M was playing the last pre-death penalty SMU at Texas Stad...

re: What's Your Worst Away Game Experience? - twk
[quote]In terms of the worst single-game experience, it had to be A&M at Oklahoma 1997. Despite winning 51-7, it was hovering around 10 degrees the entire game with howling winds and was just flat out miserable.[/quote] I broke the little toe on my right foot Wednesday before the game, and on...

re: Ticket Sales - twk
One aspect that folks usually overlook is the large visiting fan section at SEC venues. You can sell every available seat for season tickets, and then still have trouble selling the 7000 or so seats you have to save for SEC road teams when some scrub non-conference team comes to town, or even when a...

re: What's Your Worst Away Game Experience? - twk
1995 trip to Lubbock for A&M vs. Texas Tech. The head referee negated an A&M fumble recovery deep in Tech territory on a sack, and then called back a kick-block return for a TD claiming forward lateral. Game was tied at 7 in the last 2 minutes when A&M QB threw an pick six. Then some tard came up...

re: What are the chances the CWS format ever gets changed? - twk
[quote]The issue is why did they change the direction the park faces from old Rosenblatt vs. TD Ameritrade. Rosenblatt faced Northeast from home plate to Centerfield. TD faces southeast. Big difference in wind direction. TD played fine up until last night but weather was different this year than in ...

re: What are the chances the CWS format ever gets changed? - twk
[quote] You could easily squeeze in 3 games a day in the early stages just like they do in regional play. After that have a 2 day rest before the championship series starts.[/quote] You can't play 3 games in a day without messing up the brackets by splitting teams in the same bracket. It's eit...
