Texas hired Stark because Jimbo is winning
Texas A&M has been a much better football school than UT. A&M should have made the playoffs and thats driving UT Boosters insane.

Nope. It’s because Texas is losing. It has nothing to with the best Aggie year ever, but still no championship.

re: Texas hired Stark because Jimbo is winning
Sark hasn’t been a good head coach in his career so honestly hiring him and expecting him to bring that university back to prominence is nothing more than a shot in the dark. Same with Kiffin. Both are extremely good offensively, but when they are responsible for everything they have struggled so far. We will see, but that hire isn’t because of Jimbo. If they were going to hire someone because of Jimbo they would have big dicked and went for an actual head coach that they know is capable.

re: Texas hired Stark because Jimbo is winning
Exactly. They could have paid him enough to go back to college ball. Especially at Texas. The fact that he took the Jaguars job makes no sense if his health is really an issue. He won’t win in Jacksonville for a long time so how would that help his health?

It’s because Texas isn’t the destination job they think it is. I live in Austin and the names the local sports radio was throwing around before Sark was comical. John Harbaugh and Sean McVay to name two. Oklahoma dominates that conference

Maybe Urban realizes that Texas Boosters run the show down there, as Sark is finding out. He was all set to hire Mike Stoops as LB coach until the boosters nixed it.

No one lives in a vacuum. Do they feel Jimbo's presence in the state, with the way he is gobbling up elite Texas recruits into the program, how could they not feel their presence? The playoff push has been national in scoop all season. The SEC and the West division is the pinnacle of college football and has not one peer in the Big 12. Little brother looks a look bigger in the SEC.

Not really. They both won 1 NY6 bowl recently. They’re on equal footing

Historically speaking, the barn has always been happier to see Alabama coaches than the other way around.

re: Texas hired Stark because Jimbo is winning
What Texas fans haven't realized yet is that Fisher has built something sustainable at A&M. Will A&M ever win a championship? I don't know, because there is an element of luck in that. What I do know is that Fisher has changed A&M into an SEC team with a hard-nosed defense, and the ability to run the football on offense. A team capable of staying in the T10 consistently ...

The interesting part is that the success last year was with a bunch of three star Sumlin players that bought in to his vision. The next wave of players are all rated higher, and have learned from the seniors about what it takes to be successful

A&M will look different on offense next year, because the next QB isn't a game manager like Mond. Don't know if it will be better, but it will definitely be different. As far as talent goes, Fisher has raised the profile for A&M that we are no longer entirely dependent on Texas for talent. Horns will get some, and we will get some - always has been this way

2022 class is looking really good, and it doesn't matter what Texas does anymore - we will be just fine going forward because our trench recruiting is next level. Pretty soon we will be playing the elite in the SEC on an even playing field, which hasn't happened yet. Best is yet to come for A&M

So they wouldn’t have tried to make the best hire they could if A&M was losing?

What?

For every Jameis Winston, EJ Manuel, or Christian Ponder in Jimbo's program, there has been a Dalvin Cook, DeVonta Freemen, or James Wilder. Jimbo coaches up the talent he recruits.

A&M people are some unjustifiably narcissistic sumbitches.

I agree. Never winning the West or the SEC is sustainable at A&M

Aggies are constantly saying how much a cesspool Texas is yet they own you in the head to head series and have won 4 national championships since you won your last one.

re: Texas hired Stark because Jimbo is winning
Agreed that Fisher has really coached up the talent. All of the coaches on our staff know how to "coach" as well as recruit, and it really shows. That entire OL with the exception of the younger player were 3* recruits that just worked hard. Their replacements have more talent, but not the experience

As much as we at A&M love to promote King, he is still unproven. What is not is the RB's - Spiller/Achane will be a pain for SEC defenses next year. And we have talent at WR, just need to see if they have the want to block and do all the other things that make a WR successful. Like little old 3* Anias Smith

I wasn't joking when I said Fisher was ahead of schedule. Those T10 recruiting classes are just now starting to becomee upperclassmen. The underclassmen are just as talented, so now we can begin to compete on an even talent level. Across the board, not just with the occasional superstar like Garrett or JFF.

re: Texas hired Stark because Jimbo is winning
You hit the nail on the head.

These guys are being hired for their offensive acumen and expecting it to translate into head coaching genius.

It takes everything they have just to get their offenses clicking. While Sark is the head coach, I guarantee you that Sark will *not* have an offense at Texas like Bama's even if he had the same personnel.

What helps to make these guys successful when they *are* at Alabama is that Nick Saban has a structure in place where these "gurus" can focus on one thing and succeed at it at a super-elite level.

This is why guys like Kirby and Kiffin are not winning on the big stage. Kirby (if given enough time), I think can get there. So can Lane but it will take them years.

Unfortunately for Sark, he may not have enough time at Texas to build up to the program they're expecting (Bama level and beyond) within 2-3 years. Sark simply is not Saban 2007 but he will get paid. I think he's ultimately ok with that. I wish him the best.
