He actually said he'd take a contract involving no money just to get back in. Money isn't a factor with Manziel, he already has more than enough. I'm hoping for the far fetched idea that we will one day see Manziel throwing to Kirk, or even to Evans again.
I wouldn't call this an equal pettiness party. One one side you have a former WR and an assistant WR coach trash talking, on the other you have the director of recruiting not only dropping to an even lower level of pettiness, but using excruciatingly poor grammar in doing so. This is slap your forehead look for Ohio, but it's a bury your head in the sand look for Texas.
"Bennett has reportedly been indicted by a Harris County grand jury on Friday for assaulting an elderly paraplegic." This statement is pretty misleading. It would probably be good form to at least present the opposing argument considering at the moment it's not at all clear what actually happened. To start with the "elderly paraplegic" is actually part of the security staff. From all reports any harm that befell her was incidental as he pushed his way past other security personnel who in turn bumped in her. I'm not a fan of Bennett, but reporting only part of the story is very poor form.
I don't agree at all that this is tough news for A&M. Realistically they have just as much a chance of landing him as they did when he was committed in the first place. If the last few seasons have taught us anything it's that commitments mean absolutely nothing until the paper is signed. Whether you agree or not, I don't, these kids just want to enjoy the process. It's the systems fault, they're just being what they are.. kids.
Connor is quickly adopting a curmudgeon moniker. I'm starting to think he grew up with a very deprived childhood. First he can't handle a little fun with the plaque Fisher was given, now he can't handle college kids enjoying themselves in a very innocent manner. Maybe he's just upset because he looks like Howard Wolowitz?
I remember we used to beg him to stop making videos. I think he honestly had no idea just how bad he was.
That's one name I could go without hearing again. I must say he was fun to get riled up though.
Exactly what I was going to say. This is nothing remotely close to what Jones did, nobody is claiming A&M has won anything yet. People seem to have serious comprehension issues these days.
Connor is not really telling an accurate tale here. For some reason he seems to enjoy pointing out Texas out recruited A&M in 2018. This seems a bit dishonest considering his article is targeting the battle between Herman and Fisher. I'm pretty sure he knows Fisher came to the party way too late in the game to be able to elevate the 2018 class to anything remotely close to what he would likely have pulled in had he been recruiting it from the start. Using 2018 to compare Fisher to Herman is not very good analysis to say the least.
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.
Tommy Tuberville on Jimbo Fisher moving to Texas A&M: ‘Money can’t buy you a college football program’
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.
You must be new to college football.
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.
