Watch the Saban Frenzy Bubble Over if Brown Steps Down

I love hearing t.u. faithful get all excited about the possibility of Nick Saban leaving Alabama to coach the longhorns just as soon as Mack Brown steps down, which according to reports, will be tomorrow.

Orangebloods.com is leading the charge for Brown’s resignation. They are reporting that Brown will step down on Friday, however, sources close to the school and Brown himself, have denied the reports.

College Football Bowl Schedule

Here is the upcoming college football bowl schedule, starting December 21 with the Gildan New Mexico bowl and ending January 6, 2014 with the BCS National Championship. I may try to pick the winners for fun, but not right now. I will say that I am picking Auburn to win over Florida State, and the SEC will continue it’s supremacy in national championship games. I don’t think FSU has a chance.

Sumlin Lobbied Hard for USC Job

That is the headline of a story at BleacherReport.com, that states that Texas A&M’s head coach Kevin Sumlin lobbied hard to get the job at USC before the officials at A&M gave him a raise and a six-year deal worth $5 million a year.

This is really disappointing news. I’m disappointed in Sumlin. I know that coaches want the best deal they can get, but I thought Sumlin wanted to be at A&M. I thought he liked it there. I thought there was no other place he wanted to be. That has always been the impression we’ve been given, sort of like the fact that Les Miles wants to be at LSU, and Nick Saban wants to be at Alabama. Turns out that Sumlin is using A&M as a stepping stone to his next job.

The Game of the Century!?!

My folks texted me and had me come over this morning (a walk of about 35 steps) to watch the morning sports cast about the Texas A&M-Alabama game on for this afternoon. The sportscaster doing the story has dubbed the game, “The Game of the Century!”

At the point, my Dad started telling me the real game of the century took place in the Astrodome between UCLA and his Houston Cougars, was a basketball game, and featured Lou Alcindor and Elvin Hayes in one of the most watched broadcasts of all time. He is right, that is considered the GotC, and says so on Wikipedia!

Manziel Gets Half Game Suspension — Aggies Everywhere Dancing in the Streets

This just in: it’s been announced that Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel will be suspended for half a game in the season opener on Saturday against Rice University. The case will also be closed from this point on, according to reports. This means the season is no longer in doubt. He will be able to play the rest of the season. Las Vegas will be taking bets on A&M’s season once again. (Not that I’m a betting man!).

Texas Aggies Football in One Week!

The Texas A&M Aggies football season starts next Saturday at noon. Needless to say, I can’t wait. The experts are predicting A&M to have a 9-3 to 10-2 season, losing to Alabama, Ole Miss and LSU. If they are right on that, it will still be a great season. I hope they are wrong about the loses and A&M has a perfect season. But that is rare, I know, especially given that everyone will be gunning for the Aggies this season.

Nick Saban will probably have a few tricks up his sleeve to stop Manziel & Co. So will Les Miles. Heck, they all will. This is why the season is so exciting. We know it’s going to be really difficult and I’m hoping the Aggies rise to the occasion.

Now, if I can just find three tickets to the Rice game.

Johnny Football Tripped Up By Johnny Manziel

manziel-cutout

I saw the news yesterday that Johnny Manziel is being investigated by the NCAA for selling his autograph as the BCS Championship game last January. Upon seeing the news, I felt the same way I felt the day that Billy Gillispie announced that he was leaving Texas A&M to coach at the University of Kentucky. We saw how that turned out. We still have seen how this will turn out.

There is good news, although not great news. The events that are under investigation were all done after A&M’s season had concluded, so there should be no question about last year’s record or Manziel’s winning of the Heisman Trophy.

Bob Stoops Steps In IT

Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops recently stepped in it by saying the SEC really wasn’t that great of a conference even though it has produced the National Champion the last seven years. Here is what the infinitely wise coach said:

Listen, they’ve had the best team in college football, meaning they’ve won the national championship. That doesn’t mean everything else is always the best.

So they’ve had the best team in college football. They haven’t had the whole conference. Because, again, half of ‘em haven’t done much at all. I’m just asking you. You tell me.

Spring SEC Football Humor

I found both these on Friday and thought I could put together an SEC football edition even though we are months away from kickoff.

Here is the SEC if they were played by characters from the Simpsons:

I especially like the characters for South Carolina, LSU and Tennessee. Seems to work well.

Aggies-Longhorn Game a Matter of Law?

AndyTEX011Apparently a Texas legislator has filed a bill in the house that would require Texas A&M and the t.u. longhorns to play football every year. If you will recall, the t-sips opted out of the rivalry after A&M bolted the Big 12 for the SEC because A&M was tired of the bully tactics of the t-sips. In a snit, the t-sips refused to play A&M any longer, even though A&M was ready to keep the rivalry alive.
