TexAgs conspiracy theory

LINK

quote:

I have a conspiracy theory about Scott Woodward, and Jimbo's agent Jimmy Sexton, working together to help their respective best interests, but Woodward had other alternative motives. Basically, to keep A&M's hands tied with a coach that wasn't gettting it done in Jimbo Fisher.


quote:

Scott Woodward, LSUs current AD and former Texas A&M AD, was instrumental in getting Jimbo hired, and a 75 million dollar check in hand. Also, Scott Woodward and Jimbo Fisher are personal friends from their time at LSU. Now, lets assume Woodward led the charge on getting Jimbo Fisher to Texas A&M, in good faith Jimbo would somehow improve his already downward trajectory as a HC at FSU. Woodward would of been using personal relationships, and therfore bias, to get his buddy Jimbo, the biggest contract in CFB history. Thats all well and good, but Jimbo's contract extension is where the conspiracy comes into play.


quote:

In the course of looking for a new HC at LSU, Woodward understood A&M leadership better than anyone as former AD, and and knew Texas A&M wasn't willing to let anyone steal Jimbo, the keystone in their 10 year guaranteed contract experiment. This would appear to make A&M look less powerful than another SEC divisional schools, namely LSU. So he makes a call to Jimmy Sexton knowing A&M would pay astronomically to keep Jimbo, who was already underperforming. At the same time, knowing the Jimbo hire was less than likely to turn out how A&M wanted, there was even more incentive to collude with Jimmy Sexton to get A&M to dig itself in a financial hole it couldn't get itself out of. Woodward never seriously wanted Jimbo at LSU, but he did want Texas A&M to be stuck with a HC we didn't want, for longer than we wanted, something that only helps LSU in recruiting and the SEC West race overall. So he calls Jimmy and helps him to get his client a massive and unearned extension by telling him he would go public with the notion LSU was seriously considering trying to hire Jimbo as their next HC, with no actual intention of doing so.




Never change Aggies, never change...

re: TexAgs conspiracy theory
Woodward have some accountability, especially as he did the same contract at LSU, but this:

Now, lets assume Woodward led the charge on getting Jimbo Fisher to Texas A&M


Is where the “theory” falls apart. Everyone and their brother among the Aggie boosters were lusting for Jimbo harder than when they get a fresh shipment of virgin farm animals.

Far more likely that while he was willing to spend that money, he was told he needed to get Jimbo, and Jimbo was your only target.

Remember, this is the same fanbase who thought him bringing a title was assured (In spite FSU imploding without Winston), that they were delusional enough to buy this in year one.

In their defense there was a post after the TAMU game last year saying Woodward did his old buddy Jimbo a favor and had CBK throw the game to earn Jimbo asome good graces with the Aggie brass.

re: TexAgs conspiracy theory
Whether intentional or not, they did extend Jumbo because they were worried we would take him. And the result is exactly as that poster described; they were stuck with him for longer than they wanted and he continued to trend downward. They now have to pay him $77MM not to coach which will hurt. That extension set them back years and I’m glad we played a part in it no matter how big or small. Couldn’t have happened to a better fanbase.

re: TexAgs conspiracy theory
At the end of the day they got out from big brother. Got bigger payouts than they did. And they failed to adequately invest in building the program up. Now Big brother is back in the fold, will likely be paired with them, and they will regress.

They don’t have the prestige to match up with UT.

Now they no longer have the SEC recruiting pitch over them.

Sounds like the kind of conspiracy nuttiness and victim’s mentality that a lot of people in this site have.

This would be a conspiracy if Woodward didn't do the exact same thing for his football hire at LSU.

re: TexAgs conspiracy theory
In reality, the way that Woodward gets these big name coaches is partially because he is able to throw a bunch of money at them. He did the same thing here with Kelly and Mulkey. Jimbo didn’t work out, Mulkey did, Kelly is TBD.
