His contribution has almost exclusively been on special teams. I would imagine he will still fill that role as well.
Not sure how one can say the Aggies closed the day out before it's over.
Gundy is an idiot. The "newness" wore off? He acts like he just joined college ball a few years ago. Every year is different. Nothing about the SEC was fadish or wearing off. The simple answer is that Herman is a dynamic recruiter, 2018 just happened to be filled with kids wanting to say closer to home, and the whole Sumlin thing happened that set A&M back. If he really believes that the SEC won't be pulling it's fair share from the state of Texas on a regular basis he's just not facing reality. SEC will always be highly desired by recruits. I guess he already forgot where both participants in this years National Title game came from.
Absolutely, this is nothing more than a publicity stunt for Edwards trying to gain some brownie points with those who are crying about the high salaries of these coaches.
He expressed his excitement upon landing the offer Wednesday afternoon: Blessed to receive an offer from Arizona University #beardownIf that is your definition of "excitement" then you clearly see things differently than the rest of the populace.
Garbage? If you don't understand the game, you probably shouldn't post on a football forum Thomas. Isn't it time for you to get tucked in anyway?
On a side note, glad to see you were enjoying college football in the late 50's. It's always an inspiring thing to see people your age still able to type and learn new technology.
Thanks for the well wishes, although they would have been more appropriate 30 years ago when I graduated. I'm well aware of how the Heisman works and what we do or do not spend money on. There is nothing for A&M to be embarrassed about, they have no control over what happens with a players psyche after graduation.
I'll have to find the link when I get a chance. While not discussed much in the media, there wasn't much secrecy surrounding it here on campus.
Why should anyone going to A&M be embarrassed by something an ex player does? I guarantee you there is someone at least as bad as Manziel from your alma mater. Your logic here makes no sense.
Not a knock against Aranda, he's one of if not the best DC out there. There is no denying that Elko was the first DC Jimbo offered though. He was offered two months ago, it's not a rumor, Brian Kelly responded to it publicly. Whether or not he would have preferred Aranda is debatable, but he wasn't the first target.
Just to recap, A&M went after Aranda and got him a hefty raise to $2.5million, then proceeded to land their #1 option at $1.8million. I'd say it was a pretty good week for the Ags.
Well that certainly gives me more hope. When we hired Chavis I remember quite a few saying "good luck". I've learned just what they meant over the last couple of years.
I agree 100%. He has an arm no doubt, but those short bullets, although on the money, probably would have been caught had he taken just a bit off the throw.
So you're saying Georgia has no pulse? The kid has some things to work on in his game no doubt, but the raw talent is undeniable and that's what you can't coach. The rest will come if he gets the right QB coach.
Typical response from you when proven wrong. Deflect or ignore... the Crist motto.
South Carolina is middle of the pack as it currently stands as well, exactly one place above A&M, so that point makes even less sense considering that was your measuring stick. SC is barely above A&M, and doing it with 7 more commits. Surely you don't expect Fisher is not going to land more commits before it's over with?
"That’s not the case for the Aggies and Gators, even if Jimbo Fisher and Dan Mullen feel like upgrades over Kevin Sumlin and Jim McElwain, respectively."That comment makes no sense at all. Fisher has yet to lose a single recruit. The only few that were leary after the Sumlin firing are still projected to stick with the Aggies. In addition to those, Fisher has added quite a few high profile recruits that are now possible commits as well as a couple of potential flips. Fisher has just as solid a recruiting rep as Muschamp and with a 10year contract no recruit thinks he is going anywhere anytime soon. How exactly is it different for the Aggies?
Exactly, it's a shame so many FSU fans, even the "award winning" ones, have trouble seeing that.
The fact you are actually trying to compare Sumlin to Fisher validates everything I just said.

What is so difficult for you to understand about this Crist? The potential now is note even remotely similar to what those decades of coaches had. Only two conclusions can be drawn from this, you either truly have no idea what you are talking about and are more of a journalist than a sportswriter (very trollish journalist in this case), or you do know but let your emotions get in the way of your better judgement.
Luckily top tier coaches have the ability to see potential, rather than simply looking at the past as some kind of automatic indicator of the future. This is a talent you apparently never mastered Crist.
I've never been concerned with the 10year deal, it only takes 6 years here before it's more in favor of A&M than FSU had with him. I don't think anyone with any sense sees A&M wanting to terminate him sooner than that. It's also come into play in a positive manner with Head coaches and players in the Texas high schools. They are commenting on the 10years being a nice feeling for his stability here. Players like knowing the guy recruiting them isn't going anywhere during their time on the team.
I get what you're saying Lynn. This used to be a great rivalry and We used to have incredible family and friend get together's to watch this game every year. Not a single argument or fight, no debates over money or power, just fun between rival fans. That has changed so much lately though with how UT has handled everything. That friendly rivalry has become closer to the bitter rivalry we had with Texas Tech, and I certainly don't care to see those fans in College Station anytime soon. While I do want to see the rivalry game return, I think it's still a bit too early yet.
That annual salary for the POTUS is merely a baseline. When you consider all the 'perks' his income goes up significantly.
Oh I don't argue his lack of discipline, but as you say, most coaches are like that, at least with the players that are needed on the field. My point was more directed towards the "had to use criminals to succeed" nonsense.
