Oh Aggy, Part Deux

No.  If Fisher works one year, he gets that year's $7.5MM salary.     

Unless he is fired without cause. Then he gets the total package of 75 million. Just like Rumlin got what was owed to him.

If Dumbo gets them in serious trouble with the NCAA they can either look the other way or fire him for cause and theoretically not owe him anything. But it would not surprise me if it is written in his contract that he cannot be fired for NCAA troubles. My guess is he had bagman lined up before he ever arrived, and his new employers know it.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Do we have any contract lawyers in the house? I'd like to know how aggy can fire Jimbo for cause. Here's a link to his contract;

If you remember Mike Leach’s case, a state school basically gets to define cause and it sticks. Jimbo maybe should have done some due diligence.

I miss the Pirate.

Pure comedic gold on SECrant.com in a thread titled;

A&M turned down home and home with Texas

They understand aggie well. Peacockery, false bravado, and all.

F aggy

Thanks JB, that was rather entertaining. SEC has caught on to aggie.

A couple of weeks ago, a salesman, who went to ag two years but didn’t even graduate called the CEO of the company I work for a “sip” repeatedly on a visit. My CEO escorted him out and told him if he showed his face again he would kick his ass.  

Stupid is stupid. 

Funniest thing is the owner of the company went to a&m and backed the CEO fully.

Not sure if you guys have read the recent Looch write-up, but it's some sunshine pumping that has reached unknown levels.  Mond is completing 80% of his passes in practice, Williams will lead the league in rushing behind a walk-on Full Back who has NFL ability, Sternberger is basically Jason Witten, the OL will be mauling people by October like the mid-90's Cowboy lines, Donovon Wilson is an all SEC Safety, the LB's have Mike Singletary and Dick Butkis clones, and nobody is running on Mack and Mabudieke.  Lord have mercy on anybody on the aggy schedule.

I hear aggy is negotiating with Allen High for a home and home series. Prolly a better game than Northwestern St. lol

 

Yes, idiots on their board that have been clipped to the frenzy thread think our schedule sucks and is overrated.  It is actually much better than their usual shit show of  FCS teams and directional programs.  This year they had those, plus Clemson of course.  They continue to defend losses by complaining about us being ranked and playing “overrated” ranked teams.  They are still more concerned about big brother than taking care of their own business.  Sweet prefabricated NC trophy is kick ass!!!

    • SHANE  by Jack Schaefer He rode into our valley in the summer of '89. I was a kid then, barely topping the backboard of father's old chuck-wagon. I was on the upper rail of our small corral soaking in the late afternoon sun, when I saw him far down the road where it swung into the valley from the open plain beyond. ... (how it began)
      .......
      He was the man who rode into our little valley out of the heart of the great glowing West and when his work was done rode back whence he had come and he was Shane.   - The End - Back in late '80s, training one weekend on location--a month in advance--for a triathlon at Bass Lake near Yosemite, at the time living in the Bay Area, I visited a local bookstore in nearby Oakhurst, the shop owned by a lady, who, as I was browsing, up and asked me my favorite books, and I said Education of Little Tree and SHANE. Turns out the lady was the daughter of... Jack Schaefer, who, at the time was living in Santa Fe, NM.  He passed away a few years later, in 1991. As a writer of the west he had never been farther west than Ohio at the time he wrote the novel. He was a newspaper man, staying up late at night writing essays on his own time, then wrote SHANE. I first saw the movie in Silsbee, year it was released. My grandparents lived nearby in Kountze. Years later came to appreciate the book as much as the film, if not more so. Recommend U. of Nebraska Critical Edition (1984). Essays, analysis, background.
