He’s been hanging around Desmond Howard too much. Our schedule isn’t terrible, and there is a lot of talent still on the roster, but we haven’t been developing players well over the last few years. Elko has a fair amount of work in front of him....

[quote]You hear comments like that all the time after a coaching change.[/quote] Yep. While I like the progress I’m seeing so far under Elko, it’s completely cliche at this point. “The old regime was easy, new one is way tougher”. “More accountability”. Etc. etc....

Why not ask over there if it’s that important to you? ...

Lots of time for LSU fans to scrutinize A&M traditions when you get bounced in the first round of the NIT :lol:...
King George is indeed headed to Kyle Field this summer, as the earlier rumors indicated. Hoping I can score some tickets, we aren’t 12th man foundation donors who get first crack at seats. ...
As an A&M fan, we are experts in bad contract buyouts. So, I can in fact confirm, that’s a really bad buyout for Vandy to have to pay. $26 mil buyout for a guy that never made the tournament? Ouch....

Desmond Howard must’ve hacked Smith’s bracket entry. ...
[quote]I don't understand why it was only 9 episodes. There should've been a training episode like BOB had because in Crosby's book the 100th was an absolute shite show before they were finally allowed to deploy.[/quote] Saw somewhere else that they ran over budget by quite a bit, the series was s...
I’m over here laughing at some posts someone on TA Premium dug up from years ago. Just like when Gabe Bock ran down Jimbo over the crab legs fiasco, and then got called out when we hired him, liucci didn’t have a good opinion of Alberts. Difference is Bock was posting to twitter publicly and these l...
Would recommend a guided tour, get someone that’s highly knowledgeable about all of it and you’ll be amazed at how much you’d have missed otherwise. Was really glad we got a guide when we went. ...
Saban was famous for complaining about changes, but then adapting to them and mastering them, no doubt a big part of the success he had over the years. Sounds like NIL was finally one change he didn’t like and wasn’t going to adapt to. And I don’t blame him, ride off into the sunset and enjoy yo...

[quote]Why not? They are a larger school than anyone in the SEC except A&M, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, A&M and Texas.[/quote] Damn, we’re getting so big we’re listed twice!!!...
2022 App St, no question. Never seen such an inept performance by our offense, it was ugly to watch. 2013 Auburn. Missed horse collar tackle on Johnny that would’ve very likely put A&M in position to score and win the game....

I will say, I have to give Elko a solid A grade on how he’s done so far. Went to the portal and filled holes on the roster, avoided desperation moves like bringing back Denver Harris, did a good job on the recruiting class considering the transition and held on to Bussey. Hired a good staff around h...
[quote]For what he is paid[/quote] Way too much, no arguments there. [quote] and resources at his disposal[/quote] A&M actually doesn’t fund basketball at a high level outside of the HC salary. We aren’t big spenders, look at how old Reed Arena is at this point. [quote]the trophy case should...

re: Portal Comings and Goings

Posted by Texas Gentleman on 2/27/24 at 6:00 pm
Cornerback Sam McCall to the portal now too. We were his second stop so I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising. I really believe this portal will end up hurting players more than they realize, for every Jaylen Daniels, there’s 10 guys who transfer and still won’t get much more playing time. I ...
[quote]7. Kyler Murray, Texas A&M/Texas Tech[/quote] Shows the quality of this list....
Seems like a lot people think it’s more of an NIL play, maybe just looking for a better deal and we can get him back in the fold. He was a decent player with solid stats for his position. I’m not sure I buy the “he can’t handle the workouts” line. In every coaching change across the country we he...
Ryan Swope, was always overshadowed by Mike Evans and part of a really good receiving group in general. Plus Manziel mania, you didn’t see his name mentioned as much. Dude was always good for a critical catch. Got drafted in the 6th round I think but had to retire due to concussions without ever ...
Wait, other schools actually want Buzz after how he’s performed at A&M so far? Be our guest, Bjork should still have his phone number saved, tell him to give Buzz a ring please....
