    Some specifics would be nice. I mean I just don’t understand your statement that he’s a top 2 scumbag in college football just based off “recruiting the past two decades.” Some examples would be helpful to understand your position. 

    Didn't Lincoln and Stoops have good recruiting classes during that time? Or were they JUST outside of the threshold to be considered scumbags? How about Barry Switzer? 

  2. Thanks, Lobo! You're a gentleman and a scholar. Also, is the young QB at Longview any relation to you? Just saw his name...


    Anyway, Jimbo needs to back it up now. He beat Saban last October and pulled a good class. Now make it a regular thing. At the very least, play a competitive game against Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Show that you're not intimidated and that you're here to stay. Anyone can say it. Now go prove it.

    That's simply not accurate. In a court case, it's the prosecutions job to provide ample evidence for the jury to reach a guilty verdict. The jury in this case (which would be the entire country, outside of Aggieland), has seen all the evidence they need to see, and has made their verdict. And what evidence am I referring to? Simple....


    Unlike the far left in this country, majority of us are capable of seeing what's in front of us, and not being naive enough to believe it's just coincidence.

    It's funny you talk about the far left and then cite "the country" as the jury of public opinion. "The country" you speak of just elected Joe Biden as their president, with 83 million votes. "The country" (even the right) locked down their economy for months to years to halt a virus (unsuccessfully, mind you) with a 99.98% survival rate. Sadly, watching politics the last 3-5 years, I've had to come to terms with the fact that the average American is absolutely stupid. Just how it is now, I guess. 

    So yeah, I don't think citing "the entire country" is the big gotcha moment you think it is. They're easily swayed and gullible. 

    But you're right- it's irrelevant. It's completely legal and if A&M bought their class, I'm happy they did it better than everyone else.

    Ahhh good to know. My ignorance, whoops.

    No no, it's something I often wondered too. I was like, "How do these guys just do this for free?! Don't they have bills to pay?" 

    It's amazing what athletic departments do to stay within compliance and games they play with taxes. Like A&M. If you buy tickets, you DONATE to the 12thManFoundation, not to Athletics directly. Has to do with all sorts of taxes and regulations. Summer camps are a completely separate entity too, and thus how a coach can "volunteer" (in that they don't take a salary from an Athletics Department) but still get paid.

    Yes it’s a wash. Yet many Texas fans continue to post about Jimbo and his offense not being a good choice for WRs. They are coming to this conclusion because A&M has not had a big play WR under Fisher, but that’s not his offensive styles fault. It’s because the room has been plagued by injuries the last two seasons and limited by QBs who cannot throw a deep ball. You will see this offense completely change this year imo because all three QBs on the roster can and like to hit deeper routes. 

    I will also say that while Dameyun Craig is an amazing recruiter, he doesn't seem to develop WRs well. It is what it is.

    Since we are talking about accuracy of stats the quoted response could be a bit misleading.  One cannot determine if 363 is actually better than 344 unless the total number of plays is known.  This needs to be presented as a percentage.

     I am not defending either side.  Just the accuracy of "doing your research".

    This is a good point.

    How long can Texas keep Tulo on staff? 

    He's not a volunteer anymore I believe, so he's getting paid now (not that he needs that lol).

    I haven't heard much about what his intention is coaching college ball. I assume

    Even volunteer coaches get paid. They do things like run the baseball camps and take a decent salary from that. For all intents and purposes, volunteer coaches get paid.

    Murphy Stehly is batting .472 with 50 hits in 106 at bats. That’s ridiculous 

    How long can Texas keep Tulo on staff? 

    That's insane too- his OPS is a ridiculous 1.328. 

    Surely some of these numbers will drop a bit, though we've seen guys bat .400 in college. That would be cool if Texas had 2 guys do it.

    Good W for the Ags. Our pitching was terrible last night. Pierce has a lot of work to do with that bullpen. I mean that was atrocious.

    If I were a hitter for Texas, I'd be beyond angry. 

    They were up 11-7 in the 8th against Tech, and that wasn't enough. Then up 12-11 in the 10th and that wasn't enough. Scoring 10 runs in games and it not being enough would have me furious. What more can they realistically do?!

    Then at one point in the game last night, they had scored 8 runs but were still trailing by 4. The Texas bats are scary good (4 guys hitting over .350?!!), and that Ivan Melendez is one of the best hitters I've ever seen. I just checked and his OPS is 1.453 and he's hit 13 HR in only 27 games. That is INSANITY. 

    But man, I thought OUR bullpen was bad (and it is). Texas seems to have an even worse BP. 

  10. I mean that is a pretty arbitrary metric. I don’t ever remember seeing someone looking at “ fate of top rated recruit in a specific position” ever before. It was pulled out of their butt.

    It completely ignores guys who made it big just because they’re not the “top rated recruits”. It’s REALLY pathetic that twitter people look for stupid stuff like this as some big “gotcha” moment, but they hooked 2 people here already so I guess mission accomplished. 

    Demas sat out a year in HS and never got it going. We have so many other awesome talent here and coming. Haters gonna hate.

    They care, and I totally understand this, because they don't want to hear that they paid millions for a National Championship if this class leads to that success. They also care because most Aggies are extremely proud of their university and want to believe that all of this talent came to A&M because of the game atmosphere and facilities they have put together at CS - both legitimate points.

    If A&M wins a national title with this class, I won’t give two ### what anyone says about the championship being “bought” lol

    I “care” only in that I’m in the pursuit of truth (not very much- this isn’t the first bit of fake news you guys have tried to push about A&M, nor will it be the last I’m sure) and if people are coming here posting things that aren’t true, I’m going to question it. And since the claim was made by someone else, it’s on them to prove it. I’m still waiting.

    I dont know if A&M "bought" all these 5* or not but it is an amazing class. With coaches making $millions I am not opposed to players getting compensated but I hope the NIL thing does not devolve into some 5* QB having Bama on one line and Ohio St on the other and going "Coach Saban offered me $xxxxx...can you top that Coach Day?". College football has already become a mostly regional game and I hope money does not end up killing the golden goose.

    Sadly, it will. There is going to be one conference and then everybody else. The SEC will have 24-30 teams and that'll be college football. With Texas and OU joining, I'd guess that a few more big teams will join and it'll basically be a minor league for the NFL.

    I could see PAC12 and B1G getting left out. Remember, there was a HUGE power play going on last year before the season when those 2 conferences tried to cancel the 2020 football season and the others said, "No." They IMMEDIATELY reversed course and had seasons.

    What are you guys not getting about this…. It’s not the job of the accused to prove their “innocence.” It’s the job of the one making the claims to prove their side. This is a simple concept…


    And why would Bjork deny it? It’s literally free publicity. There’s no downside to it for A&M… Recruits see it and if they are naive enough to believe it they give A&M a second look even if they aren’t getting the money. And it also means that A&M according to you guys, the richest program in the country. Capable of outspending anyone. Which only benefits the program perception. 

    no. The truth is this is all butthurt by crybaby fanbases. I PROMISE you Texas isn’t letting A&M get the rep of being able to outspend them. Money is not the reason A&M signed this class. 

    Not denying = admitting guilt

    Hope they never serve on a jury.
