  1. I really do not see how they can keep Smart. Winning the NIT just prolonged the agony.
  2. My flight departure has been delayed to Africa. So here I am still. So, I asked you a question about a SEC level of player a page or so back. JohnnyFootball made a reply. I started from there with his response. Answer my initial question. Then this nonsense may stop.
  3. You are right. I guess you didn’t know that someone slapped a “kick me” sign on the back of your shirt. My apologies. I really thought you wanted the attention since the Aggies are always rattling their sabres.
  4. You get credibility by doing, not talking about doing. It may be past Texas forever but at least they have done it.
  5. They won it in 1981. That is the “modern era”. Trumps 1939.
  6. OU fans on this board are not full of themselves. And if they were then they would have a right to be.
  7. No, by no means are you living in my head. I do not have time for that. You walked into the conversation with your response to my comment about WETSU's comment on an A&M player not being "SEC good". I do not know who is the most ridiculous poster to be honest. WETSU or DB. They both kill me. You want "analysis"? As an alum I have first hand knowledge of the success and failures of Texas football. As a student I suffered through the end of the Akers' era at Texas where they struggled to be .500. While my daughter matriculated at Texas she was there at the end of the Mack era and the beginning of the Strong era. Both of those eras where bracketed with success. Presently Texas is struggling even though they have had highly rated recruiting classes the coaching is still suspect because of an egomaniac as the HC. Will Texas ever win another conference championship much less a NC? Who knows? But at least in recent memory they have. A&M is still the same as they ever were in the SWC, Big 12 and now in the SEC. Their best year in the SEC was with Big 12 players. They were the new kids on the block that had a stud receiver (Evans) that helped a scrambling QB win the Heisman. With that they still ended up second fiddle. Honestly speaking, what is/or was A&M's best opportunity to win a conference championship or NC? Big 12 or SEC? All Texas has to really do is get past OU, which is a huge hurdle for Texas as long as Riley is there and maybe Baylor, but since Rhule is gone hopefully that won't be the case. A&M has to get past Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Auburn. I could care less about participation (conference alignment) trophies. It is win or go home and for the last decade Texas has gone home. The last time that A&M has won anything of significance lets just say that "it has been a while". And when it comes to recruiting and being "SEC good". That is a ####-shoot for everyone. For a number of reasons there are always some stud that just may not work out; it may not all be conference affiliation. It seems that A&M posters on here rely upon conference affiliation and having, or almost having, all of the pieces there to make a serious run. History proves otherwise. Excitement is already there going into next year with a ridiculous record with wins against weak D1 or FCS schools. At least for now Texas does not schedule FCS schools! Just for the record, how many of the "wins" that A&M has since joining the SEC have been against FCS schools? Padding the resume. For now neither Texas nor A&M has any room to boast or make bold predictions. It is like claiming to be the fastest kid at fat camp. At least Texas can remember when they were the anchor leg on the Varsity Relay Team.
  8. Certainly not obsessed,!its just that it is too easy to get under y’all’s skin. Never seen such a group so full of themselves. And you all think that your opinions are facts.
  9. Ummmm....no, not concerned about A&M’s recruiting. 80 years of history tells me that it does not matter. Even during the FedEx years of recruiting for A&M nothing could still be done with the talent. Texas is down right now, I get it. In fact, if you look at their history in its entirety it has many peaks and valleys. However you wish to look at it Texas is more significant than A&M.
  10. So, are you saying that of all of the SEC defensive players that do not make it to the NFL or even start are not SEC ready? I guess all of them should transfer then.
  11. Is who I think this is is the older brother of one that will be on staff with Mack Brown at UNC?
  12. I would think that this is likely a strong possibility.
  13. Well, isn’t it the “Championship” posted on the stadium wall for all to see as a visual reminder? That would make it relevant to at least every home game when people have the chance to gaze upon A&M’s successes.
