Well, here's to the coaching search it looks like! At the least sumlin could show a little emotion during games!

Some Passwaters fella reported the search is well underway and they're ready to toss 10 million per at their candidate. Something about 6 unnamed candidates 3 B1G, 2 ACC and 1 SEC. Should be entertaining, much like other programs that their fan bases think they're chasing a high profile cat. I figure it will be Morris in the end.

A little nervous this week about a letdown with Okie Lite on the horizon. Here's to hoping the Frogs don't insure Chad Morris to A&M this week.

10 mil per?! Better be a true and proven coach, if they're gonna do that it better be a slam dunk hire, idk of any coaches available that would be that though.

lol No way that is remotely true. That's crazy.

I agree about not being optimistic about the Horns chances this week. Unless Texas plans to run a lot of Warren, it's gonna be ugly.

LSU finally getting their first taste of SEC play this week with MISS State.
Etling has been looking great under new OC Canada and the freshman are showing off some talent. LSU has not put up points like that consecutively in years, even playing non ranked opponents.

The best I can hope for is an entertaining, competitive game. I definitely won't be clearing my calendar. If it gets ugly early, I'll find something else to do besides throw things at the TV. Hook'em!

I know this is week 3 but did any other horn fans struggle watching the OU game? I was conflicted. Not a Sooner fan but quickly learned I am even less of an Urban fan.

I just saw the edit and I think all is true, I haven't paid a lot of attention to Morris but we will see.

And I think that guy is full of it, and out of the conferences you names and all the big time coaches it'll all be a long shot to get those guys to jump ship

Well I don't think Rhule and staff will get their first win until next season. I expected a substantial drop off but didn't expect us to lose to Liberty or UTSA the first 2 weeks.

At least our little one helps to make the games more enjoyable! She's been to all 8 home games since birth.

I wouldn't be upset with Fedora, he's from CS and would be happy to be here I feel like. Has done some good things at UNC and has some Texas ties also

Oh I'm not using that, was just stating, I don't think having ties to Texas is s bad thing though, and I'm sure it is a job that is high on his list

It's gonna be ugly for the Horns. DL can't get any passrush. LBs can't stop the run. CBs can't cover anyone. Ugh. And O can't put up enough points to keep up.

The only thing that gives me a glimmer of hope is that this is the type of game Herman has gotten his teams up for in the past. We should know in the first 5 minutes if that has happened or not.


And as far as the OU game, I just kept thinking "ugh we have to watch OU get another Heisman trophy this year." And this guy is the most unlikable one so far.

I don't see dabo leaving until the bama gig opens up when saban retires.

I bet the ags go after chip Kelly, not sure he will leave the TV deal unless for another NFL job but I think he would be a good one to go after. Morris is most likely who the ags end up with though.

We are traveling to LA for the game against USC.

The turnout will be great and I think USC is looking for redemption after the 2006 NC game. They will get it and we will fly to Vegas for a little R&R after the game.

The Exes tailgate will have another large turnout for the second year in a row on the West Coast! Bottoms up!

Don't get me wrong, there isn't an ounce of me that believes Dabo would leave Clemson to come to A&M. Just saying it would take someone like him to make me think 10mil/year is justifiable.

Call me crazy, but I'd take Dan Mullen.

Ya'll see what this man quietly does with average talent? Sumlin inherited JFF, Mullen recruited Dak and Fitzgerald and developed them. 2-3* Rated recruits. He had MSU at #1 recently, and I'd like to see what he could do with A&M level talent, plus he knows his way around the SEC.....

Not flashy, but he's an upgrade and won't be $10M a year for him

I agree that would be a good hire. What does he make at MSU? You're going to have to give him a significant raise to leave I'd imagine.
