Is there any chance we can afford to get Jacoby Matthews out of A&M?

He’s the type of player that instantly changes your defense. I can’t remember if he even considered LSU in high school but I don’t follow recruiting that hard. Until they sign on the line these days “committed” means jack shite and the hat bag trick thing is just too cringey for me.

The question is….

Can A&M afford to keep him. They are broke and poor

We paid our women’s basketball coach too much and now there’s no money left for football NIL

I'm pretty sure if you want one of the elite players in the portal, then you're going to have to fork out a lot of money. Major colleges have always paid their elite players, but with NIL, that figured has skyrocketed!

Matthews would be a great pickup, but it all comes down to dollar signs. I've read in several different places that the Aggies' stud 5-star WR Stewart is most likely headed to Alabama and I feel confident in saying they're not paying him in food stamps!

8&4 is either hiring that coach from Washington or Oregon is my guess. No way him or any other players are leaving.

There is about to be another exodus from A&M just like their “best ever” recruiting class all left after one year.

Let’s see what’s more plausible. Players representatives saying they are leaving because they don’t know the coach or them just playing 8&4 for more money?

It would be nice to know what public institutions like A&M are paying kids so one could know exactly what the contract terms are you are bidding against. That info would be something pay sites could provide at least instead of nonsense about what a “great job” a staff is doing.

As much as I love the 8&4 moniker, perhaps it’s time to give it a rest this week given they are 7&4 right now.

How much money do you think that women’s basketball coach has brought to the university since she’s been here? The arena is sold out this season. It was damn near sold out last season. So think about all of the ticket sales, all of the concession sales, all of the merchandise sales, And everything else from a publicity standpoint that she has brought to the university.

Do you think that the $2 million a year investment was worth it? I guarantee you she’s paid for her salary at least 5 to 10 years in 1 to 2 years.

No defensive player is going to make a move here until the staff gets sorted out.

House will fired within 12 hours of the game lock going to zero, if he hasn’t been told already. You don’t get to have a historically bad defense and get to survive. Plus Kelly wants to have as many options as possible because coaches will be taking other jobs in a hurry. I know he already has a shortlist of candidates, any coach worth a shite does.

not sure if you are serious or not. AM has more money than any 3 SEC schools combined.

Do y’all even follow players after high school or just look at their recruiting ranking for 4 years?

A&M has better safeties, these clowns are just fixated on Mathews because he's from Louisiana.

This board has a weird fixation on ONLY A&M players. I don’t get it.
