    Hmmm. Since when does a Series MVP ride on someone's coattails? On another subject, if he's so competitive why is playing for Cleveland?

    NCAA passes new transfer and redshirt rules

    That's how I understand it also. Hands off until you appear in the DB.

    NCAA passes new transfer and redshirt rules

    I don't think it matters if the aggies can field 11 or not. You're assuming they can count that high. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12 The next aggie up will be the 12th man.

    NCAA passes new transfer and redshirt rules

    I can see some benefit in the transfer rule when a coach leaves/gets fired from the school. Athletes aren't bound to stay at the school. I always thought it was unfair that a coach can leave for greener pastures but a student-athlete could not. I would have liked to see it fleshed out a little more than. It seems to open ended and I can see a lot of gaming the system. As for the redshirt change, I'm on the fence with it. I like that a coach can play a kid a couple of games to see what they can do. I can see where it will keep athletes more involved with the team. That is a definite plus. I think it also helps starters if they get hurt early in the season. They won't have to come back too fast. If you get a rash of injuries, you can play redshirted players for up to 4 games before pulling the redshirt. I see that helping with some QBs. The downside is we won't see non scholarship players as much. I kind of liked watching them play in blowouts.

    FSU!?! Wasn't that an all girls school? Aggie can't beat out an all girls school?

    Kerwin Roach withdraws from NBA Draft

    This is good news. It will help put a couple of more w's on the board but the loss of Bamba is really going to hurt them. Unless a freshman is better than advertised, Texas will be on the bubble come March.
  9. This is the right time for the team to jell. It's playoff time. This is when you want to peak. Let's see how far they can go. Hook 'em

    There will be plenty of opportunities to play A&M in bowl games with the Big 12's alliances with the SEC. Fortunately for the Aggies, the SEC picks which bowls their teams will play. As much as the Aggies believe Texas is afraid to play them, I don't think the SEC wants to see the Aggies play Texas. Bowl losses don't look good for their conference brand.

    Need to take everything in prespective. It's May so I wouldn't say it's a "KO blow". More like a "jab". If it was December, then it might be a "KO blow".

    Texas Lands 4-Star PG Courtney Ramey

    Does it matter? A lot of guys can "shoot" before they get here. They seem to lose that talent after they get here. Is he a true point that can drive, dish and score? That's the real question.
  15. Excellent! Great win by Texas. Hook 'em
