Debunking the myth that Aggie to the SEC would open up SEC recruiting in Texas

Recommended Posts

keep hearing this tossed out as part of the sky is falling crowds claim that we lost anything of real significance when aggie left.

So went back and looked at the years before aggie left (2007-2010) vs 2015-2018 and how the schools in the SEC West "raided" Texas.

Now I left off Bama cuz they can recruit where ever they want and were "raiding" Texas long before Aggie lied to the BigXII, cut bait and ran. Make no mistake, Bama has done well but they were doing fairly well before, they are the 800 lb gorilla.

 

And moving to the SEC definitely benefited aggie's recruiting and so has hiring Jumbo.

 

Let's start with the 2 schools you would assume benefited the most from playing games in Texas.

LSU

Before Aggie: 2 five stars 10 four stars 

After Aggie: 0 and 10 four stars

Pigs

Before Aggie: 1 five 9 fours

After Aggie: 0 five 7 Fours

Really surprised that Pigs have not taken advantage of more SEC exposure to Texas kids.

Ole Miss (they benefited the most but they also benefited from Freeze buying players)

Before Aggie: only 3 star kids

After Aggie: (2016 accounts for most of this) 1 five star 8 four stars


Miss St

Before Aggie: Shut out

After Aggie: 1 four star QB from DFW

Didn't look at Auburn, Georgia has never recruited Texas.


You would think that LSU and Pigs would have benefited more due to their proximity but simply not the case. Ole Miss seems to be the only program who really benefited and that was mostly 2016, Greg Little, DeMarcus Lodge (both NFL bound this year)

So can we get all the agroid lovers to stop with this silly myth. #1 thing that keeps Texas kids staying in state is TEXAS playing well.


PS, LSR top 100 shows 2 to Bama (duh, 800 Lb gorilla), 1 to Georgia (finally popped their Texas cherry) 1 to LSU 1 to pigs. Other than Aggie and those kids are staying in state.

A winning University of Texas is bad for everyone's recruiting in the state of Texas.......except The University of Texas.

True dat

 

But I am more that a tad surprised schools like Pigs, Miss St etc did not try to raid Texas more.   Ole Miss took advantage for awhile but by and large, only school really helped was Aggie and you have to wonder how much of that was TEXAS being down.

aggy absolutely needs SEC co-branding and ESPN hype to prop them up.

Otherwise, the cult has to sell Collie Station, fake army, and made up fairy tale "turditions". I am surprised Arky hasn't done better recruiting TX, but not so much with Ole Miss and Miss St (the aggy of MS).

F aggy
