Report: Texas A&M regents to vote on whether to sue former assistant Jeff Banks for breach of contract
I think it's just part and parcel of the climate we're in with coaching changes. LSU sued Chavis for breach of contract. It happens. Not sure all the reasoning behind it. Maybe they feel the need to do it just to put some weight behind the contract. In the end, Bama will buy out the remainder of the contract and that will be it. Same as A&M did with Chavis.
Oliver is a great player but, as stated above, if you wanna look great, you need to go to a school with a regular season schedule that will let you show that. UH is a commuter school. Gotta hand it to the past few coaches there. They've had some wonderful flashes in the pan, but they're still not playing that regular gauntlet that the P5 schools play. I don't know if he was "Afraid of flopping". Maybe his mom talked him into staying close to home. Maybe it was his older brother as Piglandia said. Either way, this is just sour grapes. It wouldn't be surprising if no UH players ever made the cover of that magazine. They're just not a premier program in the state, although, I'd bet Andre Ware was on it when he won the Heisman.
I think Morris is a good guy but I'd temper the excitement a little. He's 14-23 as a head coach. He made significant strides with the SMU program, but there really was nowhere for that program to go but up. The AAC is pretty weak top to bottom and they lost to the only quality opponents on their schedule. I'm very eager to see what he can do, but he hasn't come close to preparing a team for an SEC schedule. He ran the hurry up spread at Clemson as OC and at SMU as HC. It's a different ball game in the SEC. You have to be able to run the ball. Arky has some huge OL, so he's got a good start. I wish him the best of luck and hope he does well in the SEC. He is, after all, an Aggie!
I'm curious to see how he does too. Sumlin definitely did his part when it comes to recruiting, so the talent is there. We'll see how well Jimbo sells his "culture". I'm excited to see what that's gonna be like.
I know they have a new coach that no one is sure how he'll do in the SEC, but seeing Arky at the bottom is kind of weird.
I don't understand how it can be the 2B ball when he had to come from 2nd base to try and make a play on a ball that the 1B and RF were already under. I'm wondering if he meant, at the time it hit the ground it was the 2B ball, since he'd already cut off the 1B and RF?
Has little to do with the conference distribution as the revenue is derived mostly from ticket sales and booster contributions. TAMU booster contributions are always near the top. The thing that sticks out to me, that doesn't even get a mention, is Revenue vs Expenses (hence profit). Texas only has about $8 million. TAMU has $65 million, if I've done my math correctly.
RF had the best opportunity coming forward on the ball, but he pulled up when Shaddy ran in.
All on Shaddy. Sucks for him but sucks more for the teammates he let down.
Shaddy can say what he wants, but he was the only one out of the 3 that had no business even trying to make the play. The 1st baseman was watching the ball in the entire time until Shaddy hit him in the shoulder. The RF had a great play on the ball but pulled up when Shaddy ran in between he and the 1st baseman. They put on a good face in public but I"d bet Shaddy felt a chill in the locker room.
Never heard of The Big Lead
Well at least it happened on the biggest stage in college baseball where every fan could see it and never forget it.....OUCH! C'mon hogs....get your sh** together and take this thing.
I was about to post the same thing. 2008 was WAY before the playoff era
Tragic. Prayers for this young man's family.
We may not "need" one, but I'd bet lots of money Jimbo is gonna get one. May be a 3* but he's gonna put one on the roster. He has to start getting kids that fit his system in.
Keep it rollin', Jimbo!! Putting together a monster class. Now, to hang onto all of them.
But he can't develop them. I find this a strange move. I've heard that the kid's folks had a ton of influence in the decision. Jimbo is supposed to be a QB whisperer. Sumlin has lost more QB's to transfer due to his poor handling of them than I care to count.
There has to be a clause in the MLB contract that lets them out of the guarantee if he gets injured while he's scrambling for his life every week during football season, right?
He's gone. Lincoln Riley says he hasn't lost any sleep over it. He's had discussions with Kyler and his dad, Kevin, about their commitment and Kyler will be there next year. I followed Kyler's time at A&M and saw how Kevin's discussions went with staff. This is a big pay day for Kyler. I'm pretty sure Kevin's word to Riley doesn't mean squat and I'd bet a lot of money that Riley lost a significant amount of sleep last night. Kevin Murray's phone is probably going right to voicemail this morning. LOL
I've stopped believing anyone is committed until they put pen to paper on one of the signing days. Even then, it's a bit of a crap shoot.
I had a feeling this was coming. By all accounts, he's a pretty good kid and very level headed.
I think Hamilton is at least gonna have to give him some significant playing time after all the hoopla that was made about him going there. I hope he has his act together this time. He should at least add another element of excitement to the CFL game. I already think it's a pretty interesting sport to watch. So much movement and only 3 downs to get it done in. Not to mention that big a$$ field.
Don't recognize the name at all. I'm very surprised to hear a walk on played in 5 games as a freshman. Must be trash time in blow out cupcake games. Best of luck to him at Zona. I don't think he was going to ever see the field much at A&M. This article doesn't say if he's getting a scholarship at Zona or walking on.
Since joining the SEC in 2012, TAMU has gone 51-27. Ole Miss has gone 45-31 in the same timeframe. Hello pot, this is the kettle, guess what? You're black.
You notice who is #6. There are probably enough fans of #6 and #7 that hate each other enough to land each team on this list. Texas is obviously higher because anyone that's ever been in the Big 12 or SWC hates them.
Not sure what you mean by, "That’s hard to imagine based on what the new coaches at each program inherited from the previous coaching staffs." Jimbo inherited a talented roster at A&M. Same with Mullen. It's not like the schools have been lacking in recruiting. The right coach can make significant improvements on the previous year's record in pretty short order.
It's not ideal, but who could pass at the opportunity to play for their dad and father-in-law. A&M has been known to produce some pretty good O-linemen. I would think there is sufficient depth to fill the void. Time will tell. Someone has already been seeing significant time at the position since Koda's heat stroke.
Tends to find himself wide open downfield a lot. Guess that's what I'd post on my highlight reel too. What I found most impressive was the ease he has in bullying guys at the line or even blocking downfield. Looks like a sold get.
