Great job at not researching to even a basic level. Sumlin did not recruit Matt Davis or Johnny Manziel. Sherman did. If Sherman had stayed in 2012, we probably would have seen Davis over Manziel.
Mond is good. He will probably not be great. He will need a consistent 2-3 seconds on drop backs and a decent running game. He was getting 1-2 seconds on the drops, and a spotty running game in 2019. The level of opponent had something to do with that. Injuries and just a bare cupboard did as well. Also, Sr QBs sometimes have the light bulb go off that last year. Besides, who do we have that is better? Do we want to make another of our QBs get that deer-in-the-headlights look? Calzada looked good, but again not great. Do we want to risk exposing a true Fr QB to the SEC W? That seems to have not worked for Mond.
When you were in not 1, but 2 conferences where access to revenue was hard to come by. If we had gone with the SEC when the BDF formed, we would be so much better off now. But nooooooo, the baylor people had to pass a state law requiring us to go with tu and teck while taking baylor with us. BTW, from the end of WWII to ~1976, we were an all-male military school. We didn't get top end football recruits, and I believe the 60s were one of the worst decades for any school in D1.
Go get good Lee Grimes. We may need you back in a few years.
We will see where Jimbo is going to year 5.
If only we only needed 6 players at a time...
Beat me to it. The pilot light for Jimbo's seat will not even be installed until next signing day is done. Now if we tank year 4...
I think Starkel was a what could have been. He was the A&M starter in 2017, but was injured. Mond's skill set was just better for our rebuilding o-line. He could move better and was more durable.
We still probably won't get him. Which with the whole Kyle(r) thing in our recent past, may not be a bad thing.
No one except LSU has played a scheduled like A&M's in 2019. We would have been a 2 win team like Arkansas in years past.
With Rudolph right behind him? What about the 2 O-Linemen that attacked him? There was plenty to go around.
Still should have taken Johnny. The Ags will watch for him. Everyone else will watch to see him get beat.
Let me correct my self, 2016 was Ed O's intern year. He was 6-2, with Les getting some of those games. Still, he was at a school with 2 recent NCs and a huge stockpile of talent. He should have started with a 10 win season.
After you kept Les for a few extra years, you might want to check your house first. Fisher in Year 1 raised the number of wins. In Year 2, he appears to have purged the last of the Sumlin holdovers. We can't really judge where he is until this time next year. I mean Ed O did go 8-6, 9-4, 10-3, then 15-0. He was also starting with a team in 2016 that was a pre-season #5, post #13, and had several years worth of talent stock-piled. Fisher is starting with a program that hadn't been ranked in a few years. Remarkably, we had the same records (although reversed) as Ed O's first two years in Baton Rouge. Mediocre might be too much at this point.
If he had stayed at A&M, he would probably head this list. Based on what T Williams did in Year 1 of the Jimbo era. It's OK, I am good with Spiller and his 5.4 ypc average as a True Freshman pushed into action due to injuries.
A&M tried that last year. 1/10 stars, would not recommend. *Unless you get an OSU transfer QB.
I know we just lost him to Ole Miss, but Finley was a Big 12 and SEC coach. Your narrative just doesn't hold together.
Danged right my hope is no. We already chasin' Bama and them boys's fast. Now we got Swamp Kitties to deal with too? Dang it!
John Cohen’s Hail Mary connected, and now, Mississippi State has an exciting new identity with Mike Leach
Please no. He will just cockroach you when you expect it least. He only came to the SECw to mess with A&M.
APT, Considering TAMU faved 3 #1s and 2 more Top 8, we probably would have had a 10 win season against a Big 12 schedule.
It's not Washington that we are chasing.
His brother? So now there are tow of them? Ouch. At least I am not too worried about any NFL team. Go make your Millions!
He went to Texas A&M because LSU didn't recruit him. He went to Clemson because the old coach didn't hand him the starting spot.
Could we get a top 10 Aggie moments that isn't written by a hater? #8 - Against a Scheduled that included 3 X #1 and 2 other Top 10 teams, we lost 5. Let's see what happens next year, because only fools thought we would do well this year. #2 - Sumlin wasn't our coach when Manziel was recruited. That was Sherman. Fact check much?
There was another that only had 3 star talent around him.
No, its not. Find a guy without an incredible team around him that lit up the stat lines in multiple years. He should also have slayed a giant at least once and willed a win a few other times. Sound like anyone familiar?
42 to be exact. JFF put at least 42 on everyone his second season. Give him 1/4 of a defense and A&M wins it all.
Are were talking about the team of the Decade, or the Offensive Player of the Decade? It takes a team to win the SEC.
Boyd was a 4 Star recruit for A&M first. You also missed JFF, Mike Evans, and Ryan Swope. And I have to agree, Bennie Snell should be on the list if he was a 3 star.
