    Re: Report: A&M will hire Billy Kennedy

    Houston Chronicle reported citing sources
    The Houston Chronicle writer reported that it was "done" before Jacobson was even interviewed. It may be true but FoxSports is jumping the gun by reporting something based off another guy who jumped the gun. Just an FYI.

    It is done, and mine comes from a different source.

    Re: Report: A&M will hire Billy Kennedy

    One of the first posts an Aggie Board from a poster who wanted the Aggies to get a top tier coach.

    "A&M Building Champions on the cheap"

    Just sounded funny.

    At least in the message board world, he will be accepted and do not think their will be a negative reaction, but I do know Jacobson had some strong fan support from those that care about basketball in Aggieland.

    "A&M Building Champions on the cheap"
    Thats for sure. Kennedy was making ~225K last year. They could start him out at 800K, which would be cheap for a Big 12 school.

    Re: Report: A&M will hire Billy Kennedy

    It seems like during all of these coaching searches this year that the media reports have been consistently wrong. Even more than other years.

    Kennedy seems to make a lot more sense than Jacobson, but then again UNI is a better job than Murray State.

    Re: Report: A&M will hire Billy Kennedy

    The pick is in for A&M and it's officially Billy Kennedy
    After an exhaustive 24 hours for Bill Byrne and Co., the Aggie search team has made their choice and will now proceed forward

    His background and style of play is similar to Floyd he came to ISU. Also similar to Turgeon's for that matter. This is a good hire by A&M, they are better off with him than Buzz Williams.

    Re: Report: A&M will hire Billy Kennedy

    They're probably not going to throw a welcome parade, but I think this is a solid hire for A&M.

    Plus, I don't want UNI fans to have any excuses when we smoke them for the next decade.

    While I think its a decent hire, in no way is it better than Buzz Williams. Buzz has shown success at Marquette and has some really good charisma. I think he's got a bright future, he looks like a guy that young athletes would like to play for.
