Mond has shown dramatic improvement from year 1 to year 2 all while learning a new offensive system. He threw for 430 yards against Clemson. The assumption is that will correlate into a continued improvement in year 3 after another year in Fisher's system. Time will tell whether that theory holds true. Bentley already seems to have hit a ceiling.
Texas A&M graduate transfer QB Nick Starkel sets two official visits, announces timeline for decision
FSU makes a lot of sense for him since they can't seem to get a QB to commit. His path to playing time should be pretty easy. Don't see the Noles improving much under Taggart though.
Well, the Tigers have a great opportunity early in the season to derail that hype train. Looking forward to it.
Mond has to get his completion rate north of 60% if he's going to approach 4,000 yds. Either that, or they'll have to attempt a lot more passes.
Only 11 teams on the list. Very fitting that A&M is the 12th.
Make that 3. Texas A&M is on the graphic. He inadvertently left them off the list. Something he clarified on his Twitter feed.
The only real weight I give recruiting rankings is that they generate momentum. Ultimately, yes, you have to produce on the field.
Brian Williams is the A&M safety commit
Texas only surpassed A&M on pure will of the rankings services, particularly 247. Tyler Owens is a prime example. The kid had a meteoric rise to go from something like 900 up to being a 5 star with only 15 offers. His next best offers after Texas were Baylor, Nebraska, Purdue and Vandy. No offers from Bama, Notre Dame, Oregon, Florida, Clemson, A&M or any number of other top programs. Yet A&M Safety commit, with 33 offers including ones from a vast majority of the big boys, lost his 5th star. I fail to see the logic except to help pump up Texas.
Pretty sure, that wasn't addressed to me.
A&M would be spanking Texas in recruiting if not for 247 lending a HUGE helping hand by bumping Texas recruits. One of them went something like 294 spots after committing to Texas. Funny that Muschamp mentioned that stuff happening when he was at Texas in an article on SDS last week.
A&M's is brutal too. Clemson, Bama, LSU, UGA, AU...and 3 of those 5 are on the road. Oof
tOSU only make sense if Fields doesn't get a waiver, right? Otherwise, he faces sitting there as well. I'm sure he's looking for someplace he's virtually guaranteed to land a starting role.
Better passer, but he's turnover prone and sometimes looks like his feet are nailed to the turf when he gets pressured. I'm not sure if he doesn't have the instincts to feel it or he just locks up.
How many shots is he gonna take? Best of luck, Nick
#ItMightMeanTooMuch: Why that racist, threatening letter to Kevin Sumlin was stranger than we thought
Yet, according to Horns fans, the Aggies aren't on their minds at all.
Kyler Murray is toxic. Just ask his A&M teammates. That being said, he appears to have a lot of upside, but he lacks size. Will he be able to extend plays and stay off his butt when EVERYONE at the next level is as fast as the fastest guys that got after him in college? If he goes first, he's going to a team with a bad record and, likely, a bad O line. What happens to his accuracy and escapability when he has 275-300 pound DL's in his face all game?
A&M/Clemson, LSU/Texas, Ole Miss/Cal (not as marquis as in days past, but still a big OOC series), Mizzou/WVU and Mizzou/Troy (watch out trap game). SEC is doing a little better these days with OOC.
Just hope the swamp kitties are up for the Texas game. I will not get any peace in this town until an SEC team hands the horns a loss.
Guess they never heard of Trayveon Williams.
OUCH!!! 1 game over .500. Not so great. Especially losses to Big 12 schools. Those sting just a little more.
Well, it is WAY too early. A&M has a brutal schedule next year with Clemson, Georgia and LSU on the road. 9-3 (again) looks like a good mark.
This was the point in the game where I first felt like Bama was in trouble. This was crazy bad.
You're kidding, right, aggierider? I'm 47 years old and have seen that one since elementary school.
They did, but it's also (reportedly) guaranteed for 5 years. WVU was offering an extension but no guarantees. The articles I read seemed to indicate Holgorsen was a bit at odds with the WVU administration.
And 3 of them being the top 3 on this list.
A&M has 4 of the top 10 as well with 3 of those games being on the road. Brutal!
You had one job. Shutoff all the players' Twitter accounts. Life is gonna be tough here in Austin for the foreseeable future.
Crap! C'mon Dawgs. Get it together. I'll have to listen to these idiot Horns fans here in Austin ad nauseam if y'all can't pull this out.
