Agmaniacmike - I like the fact an aggie has the balls to post on an UT site. Defending A&M, and it's minions, is what an aggie does - after all you are a fan of said school and that is expected.

 

I really don't have a dog in this fight, so I will suspend my opinion on the subject.

 

My question is - why are you here? What were your expectations from a UT site - sympathetic ears? Really?

 

Don't get me wrong, this is a serious question and not an attempt to run you off. Far from it as I enjoy reparte' with aggies and you appear to be one that hasn't earned the title of "aggy" - as yet.

 

Since it appears you were trying to be objective about Sumlin, I will give you my opinion of the aggies, as best I can.

 

I have followed Sumlin since his days at U of H. He appears to be an excellent coach and I think A&M hit the jackpot when they hired him. In spite of having Manziel, I think the aggies better days are still ahead of them.

 

His recruiting classes will certainly start paying dividends, and I mean as soon as next year. And 2015 is shaping up to be awesome - even SEC champion awesome. He has recruited just too much quality talent for it not to be possible. Longhorn fans saying this won't occur are just entertaining wishful thinking, IMO.

 

These are my opinions of Sumlin and the aggie talent.

 

However, culture is important for the survival of any athletic program - the last few years of the UT football program is a prime example. Therefore, IMO, this will be the downfall of football at A&M - they simply cannot get out of their own way and that has been their history from day one. It is the culture of Texas A&M and always will be. Just as Texas had Dodds arrogance, A&M had the bowtied nerd and both individuals exemplified the culture of each school. A&M will always be the sword wielding goober cultist and the school that fired the winningest coach they have ever had.

 

My point being, it is unwise to wax TOO smugly on this site, even though the near future looks bright, because you will never be able to escape your own culture and you will eventually wind up crapping in your own Post Toasties - it is just in your genes. :)

 

doc longhorn my friend this is a very good post Not sure what Agmaniacmike expect to prove posting on a Longhorn site. Could be he wants to prove he is thick skinned. I have never posted on an aggie site nor do I ever expect to. All a Longhorn has to do is go post on one of there sites and you will see how much Longhorn are still disliked. I do think that Texas posters are more tolerant of aggie posters. My friends y'all have a great weekend

Best guess is Brice Jones, or one of the lower level Texags guys. They were claiming he would commit before the end of the visit, I'm sure he shared that info privately and Brice or Jacob Kristen ran

I think this list is 3-4 years old.

In any event, to win this title, aggy has some work to do.

 

aggy is working on being a part of a number of SEC traditions.

You have to think that is evidence to show who the cheater are. Those programs really got nothing more than a slap on the hand compared to what SMU received. In other words the rich collage got away with it. The aggies I think there cheating was tied to a Dallas HUD project. This did not came to light until the real workers were complained they were doing the work and there was a group of young kids coming to work and setting around. This was reported to a Dallas news paper and they uncovered the HUD scandal. Some of your are better at researching than I am might be able to tell you more about what happen. My friends y'all have a great week.

I legitimately am happy that this thread got back on track, the title is "Aggy cheating?", so it seems fair that the discussion would be about that and not something else. I have a habit of derailing threads thus far, so I'm glad somebody brought the thread back to its original purpose. I am a Texans fan and would love to have Manziel but I don't see it happening. The franchise has never been about getting the flashy player and I don't see them changing that philosophy. I will say this, I don't believe Bortles is even close to a #1 overall pick kind of player and would be extremely frustrated if he was the guy they took. There are lots of diamonds in the rough in this draft class that I have noticed based off of the absence of players I think will be studs in all of the mock drafts, I'm more interested in what happens in the rounds after Day 1. Barring a miracle, I think Johnny goes to Cleveland with the #4 pick and Matthews will struggle to stay in the top 10, he's solid, but not spectacular like Joeckel.

I would LOVE to see Manziel drafted by the Texans or the Cowboys so the ags get to deal with every time he screws up on and off the field and they can't live in their world of denial as they do with players like Von Miller getting suspended and Ryan Tannehill (who last I heard from the ags, was already getting measured for his Hall of Fame jacket).

 

Bob McNair will never put someone with the character issues like Manziel's as the face of his franchise. Not. Gonna. Happen. I said a year ago that the binge drinking pictures, the flashing of the cash at the casino and the rest of the "screw you, rules don't apply to be because I'm too big for rules" attitude of Manziel was going to turn off a number of NFL owners.

 

I would expect the Texans to trade down in the draft to get more picks and go for a proven quarterback on the free agent market. With the payroll the Texans have, I can't see them writing off the next two or three years on a development project and certainly not on an undersized one.

If you are a Texans fan, why wouldn't you consider trading down for a shot at Evans, McCarron and a couple of OL's?

 

Manziel is too big a risk. Not because he might get hurt, but because of his brain. He is already a loose cannon and with first choice money, I think he will self destruct and probably take a couple of Texans players with him.

 

EDIT: This response was actually directed at the aggie.

Ah, ha, ha! Seriously? Are you a masochist?

 

Admit it, you aren't really an aggie, are you? I think you are Sirhornsalot in disguise. :)
