re: MTSU Coach for an SEC job? - twk
Has Kermit managed to air brush out completely his one year stint as head coach at A&M way back in 1990? There is a reason no major school has hired him since that fiasco. Kermit probably needs to coach somewhere under the radar. I don't think his success at MTSU would translate to success at the SE...

re: Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic 2017 - twk
They are apparently expecting big crowds. They are now selling club level (2nd deck--not to be confused with Diamond Club behind home plate) tickets for $24 for tonight (opens at 6:00; prior to that time ticket will get you into lower level GA) and tomorrow (opening at 2:30). Don't recall them doing...

re: Bad Weather Forecast in Houston This Weekend - twk
Minute Maid has air conditioning, but no heating system. Consequently, the park tends to stay pretty cold in winter. It may be 70 degrees outside, but it will probably feel like the upper 50s inside, because all that concrete, protected from direct sunlight, warms very slowly. Dress accordingly....

re: Just released AD Revenues: A&M-$194M, Bama-$164M - twk
About $30 million of that A&M figure is capital contributions to the stadium project that will wind down over the next five years. Still, we are light years ahead of where we used to be. However, I don't think we have an extra $10 million laying around that's not be used if we decide Sumlin has to ...

re: I just saw Mississippi State baseball on Sports Center - twk
[quote]I argued this all last year and I turned out to be right. Last year, State dropped a few midweek games but continued to win weekend series. State's rank and rpi went up every week because of weekend series wins and nothing to do with mid week games[/quote] Mid-week games count in the RPI the ...

re: Why haven't Mizzou fans embraced the SEC like Texas A&M fans have? - twk
Yes, give it time. Missouri wasn't a perfect fit, but they were the best available--the ACC schools weren't (and still aren't) going to leave for the SEC. If they ever get basketball on track, it will look like a much better addition. ...

re: So how many schools from the SEC will be looking for new bball coaches - twk
There's probably a 50/50 chance that Billy Kennedy doesn't come back for next year. He's got a lot of talent coming back, but the Parkinsons may finally be getting the better of him. Looks like it will be his decision to make (not being forced out)....

re: A&M/Georgia ending - twk
It's a terrible rule, but it's been that way for a long time. I remember the same thing happening way back when I was in school, at old G. Rollie White. Nolan Richardson's second Arkansas team was inbounding the ball with about 10 seconds left after A&M tied it, and the clock did not start on the in...

re: Neutral Site Games Impact on Bowl Games - twk
Too much travel is one reason why I don't see the playoffs going to 8 any time soon. The only realistic way to do it would be to eliminate conference championship games and play the first round on campus, and I just don't see that happening. ...

re: The Quagmire that is Texas A&M - twk
[quote]There isn't a single Texas team in the Top 25 at the time. It's time people realize Texas talent isn't all that it's cracked up to be. That's not to say some really good player aren't born there but not to the extent people pretend. [/quote]There's some truth to that on the defensive side of ...

[quote]Behind the anonymity of a board people can get obnoxious but I agree with the OP. Most Aggie are nice in person, I know a lot and with very few exceptions they are nice folks, like most people are at the end of the day. I give this to Texans. In most States rural folks are nicer than the urba...

re: My Weekend CSB and Texas A&M fans. - twk
I've yet to have any really bad experiences in the SEC--Arkansas fans in Fayetteville were perhaps a little less friendly, but still, mostly indifferent to our presence. I think one reason why it is different is that the number of fans who travel is so much larger than in other conferences. The Big ...
