re: 2016-2017 Men's Basketball Thread (9-7)(1-4) - Next Game 1/17 vs Arkansas - Ash'sProstheticHand
Kenpom & RPI both ranked the 2007 team ahead of our 2016 team. So there are some measures that say it was a better season. I don't know. 1 extra win while playing in a lesser conference doesn't strike me as an insurmountable statistical hurdle. You can make cases for both. I like post-season play...

re: 2016-2017 Men's Basketball Thread (9-7)(1-4) - Next Game 1/17 vs Arkansas - Ash'sProstheticHand
If you want to include the conference tournament, then yes, we won fewer conference games in 2007. That said, the Big 12 was/is a far better basketball conference than the SEC. Last year 2-3 SEC teams* out of 14 made the tournament, which is freaking pathetic. Then, Kentucky ducked out in the round ...

I think our 2007 season was better. Won the same number of conference games in a harder conference and didn't finish the season with a total no-show. ...

[quote]Hyperbolize all you want, you're still describing the best season in A&M's history[/quote] It is not the best season in A&M history. Winning the conference is a nice bonus, but not the huge achievement it is in football. We went 13-5 for Christ's sake....

[quote]Surprise, he still is.[/quote] Great? Still? He's never been great. With a loaded roster and top notch assistants, Kennedy needed a freaking miracle to sneak by an 11 seed as a 3 seed. And then he got to the Sweet 16 and promptly slammed his dick in the door :lol: That is the pinnacle o...

He'll tell us that we don't have a PG, even though Kennedy 1) basically told Robinson to transfer by asking him to redshirt (Robinson is now at TCU averaging 10.8 pts and 5.4 assists/game) and 2) refuses to play Caleb Smith, who looks like our best option. ...

[quote]And, I dunno, the fact that he's fresh off the best basketball season in A&M history. But hey, he's having a rough season while short handed, so frick em[/quote] He owes all of that to Stansbury. Without Stansbury, there's no House, no Jones, and no stellar recruiting class. Oh, and asi...

re: Less Pessimistic outlook on the 2016-2017 basketball season - Ash'sProstheticHand
I can't believe this bum has a 7 million dollar buyout after this season. 1 freaking tournament appearance in 5 years earned him a solid gold parachute. Unless you give him a rocking starting 5 and 3 solid bench players, he won't make the dance. And even if you do that, he'll be exposed early....

re: Chip Kelly to A&M? Would we even want this guy? - Ash'sProstheticHand
Two top ten defenses and two more top thirty defenses in the last seven years does not suck, especially at Oklahoma freaking State. I'm not saying he's a Saban or Miles, but it's plainly obvious that he values defense, doesn't see it as an afterthought, and has had success getting it to a reasona...

re: Chip Kelly to A&M? Would we even want this guy? - Ash'sProstheticHand
Total defense and scoring defense are bum stats because they don't account for pace in any way. If Bama plays LSU, both teams will get less possessions, so of course the score will be lower than 2 hurry up offense teams playing against one another. That's why defensive efficiency is a much better st...

[quote]We certainly haven't, and Gundy is just a white version of Sumlin, give or take some minor playbook differences. He would do just as bad as Sumlin has here.[/quote] I'm sorry but this shows that you haven't done an ounce of research. Gundy is not a "defense is an afterthought" coach. O...

[quote]I want an coach that can make us an elite team in the SEC West.[/quote] The whole "the coach needs to understand the SEC!" thing is overrated. Quality coaching is quality coaching wherever it's done. Gundy has put offensive linemen in the NFL. He's committed to the run game. He usually ...

re: Minnesota's BOR chair mentions Sumlin for HC job. - Ash'sProstheticHand
[quote]This is what I hate about the wacky season. Last year it was "Sumlin trying to find a spot in the NFL" or similar nonsense, based on nothing but messageboard posts, many of which were repeated here in this otherwise sane forum. And now this. I'll be happy to see him go, but he doesn't (as far...

re: Chip Kelly to A&M? Would we even want this guy? - Ash'sProstheticHand
Yep. It depends on how you want to value it. Slocum had a great run at the end of the SWC, but never finished ranked higher than 6, and laid a lot of eggs in bowl games. Gundy had that 12-1 season which culminated in a W over an Andrew Luck-led Stanford team and a #3 finish. And he's performed much ...

I'd love Gundy. He already has his Texas recruiting network set up, and what he's done at OSU (the 2nd fiddle program in freaking Oklahoma) is nothing short of amazing. He's going to finish this season ranked for the 7th time in 9 seasons, with 3 of those being top 10 finishes and 1 being a top 3 fi...
