Yep....amazing how fickle the alumni are these days. Give you a raise and extension one year then run you off the next. Ten million should last him a little while anyway. 8-5 may look darn good the next few years.

Well, they don't play UT anymore, so the one team they have to beat every year is LSU. Lose to the Tigers and a head coach job is in jepopardy no matter what happened the year before, but they let LSU beat them this year and let LSU put 54 points on the board last year... Is Jimbo Fisher ready to move?

GB LSU has been beating up on the Aggies since I was there in the 60's. Manziel couldn't even beat them. Just got that Voodoo magic going for them. :lol2:

Something about Tiger Stadium, coaches, fans, alumni, all say we want night games. Noon. mid afternoon
games generally competitive, nite games look out. Even announcers admit that. I know home field always
advantage, but think most less than Sat Night in Baton Rouge. With all openings Summerlin will make someone
proud/happy next year. Too much chasing the money, not concentrating athletes/football/sports. My school as guilty
as any. A game with AU few years ago actually registered on La seismograph.

Yeah, but TAMU wasn't SEC then and had UT as their #1 rival. UT loss to A&M meant a coaching job was in jeopardy too. Lose to both A&M and OU and LOOK OUT!

Some may say that Wisconsin doesn't have strength of schedule, but they've beaten a couple ranked teams. They beat FAU who is the C-USA conference leader (which is a patsy conference, but that's still a better team than Alabama's Mercer, and better than Utah State that Wisconsin also took care of). FSU is not even close to what they were expected to be, and shouldn't count as a good win. I won't disagree with Clemson being up there. Auburn, maybe, but I don't think Alabama is as powerful as everyone thinks they are. Oklahoma should not be ahead of Wisconsin.

I think it should be:
Clemson
Wisconsin (b/c they are undefeated)
Auburn
and then the 4th place team is a toss up between Oklahoma, Miami and Georgia.

Well, looks like our AD is going to talk with Sumlin today. With the past few attempted hires, I would be very pleased with y'alls sloppy seconds. Wife is an aggie so im sure she will have fun with it if it goes down.

The fans are not happy after this horrible year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go.
