    Sherman under fire at Texas A&M....

    65-10. Another embarrassment. Another showing of ineptitude. And, suddenly, the sunshine pumpers are awfully quiet. Cat got your tongue? The 22nd game in the infamous era of Mike Sherman sure looked familiar, didn’t it? Here’s some breaking news, Aggie fans. Under Sherman, Texas A&M’s football program has become THE embarrassment of the Big 12. This delegation doesn’t come merely from wins and losses. It comes from the simple fact that this and last year’s teams do not compete. Seriously, what teams in the Big 12 or, better yet, the entire Football Bowl Subdivision get blown out more often than the Aggies? In Sherman’s almost two years at the helm, the Aggies have lost 12 out of 16 games to teams from BCS conferences. In those 12 losses, the margin of defeat is nearly 27 points. Read it again. And, again. Let’s all stop the argument about this team being young. Seriously, it’s game 10 of 2009, and the team is regressing. That is a direct reflection on the coaching staff’s inability to develop talent… The fact of the matter remains, if the Twelfth Man is expecting any sort of change, then you are going to be sorely disappointed. The athletic department sits in a multi-million dollar hole. Our athletic director, in his pursuit of “Building Champions,” signed off on Sherman, an unproven commodity in the college game, for seven years. And, here’s the kicker. Sherman’s buyout would be nine million dollars in December. Suffice to say, he’s not going anywhere. And, for that matter, neither is Texas A&M football. – The Battalion

    Wow. That was hard to read AND it didn't make any sense.

    Who is "The Battalion"?

    Root for Baylor to pull off the upset this week. That'd be another Big 12 team without bowl eligibility. Would help our chances greatly.

He may be under the hot seat if they lose to Baylor (big money doners will be yelling loud) but otherwise he is fine. The Athletic Department at A&M does not have the $ to buy him out. They still owe the University a large wad of cash that Gates loaned them when he was President of A&M.
    Is this worse than, or not as bad as; being on the hot-seat?

    We have no room to bash or judge Texas A&M. Sherman is 2-0 against ISU.

    The OP should have just linked to the article. As someone else stated ... it is the student newspaper down here.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Does Baylor have the money, facilities, resources, and fan support of A&M? Absolutely not. IMO he might not be far off.

    I missed the part where an ISU fan bashed A&M but thanks for setting us straight dad.

    Re: Sherman under fire at Texas A&M....

    I always root for A@M when they are not playing us. I would like to see them get it together down there. I am a Packer fan and know that Sherman is a horrible coach so I don't think he will get it done.
    A@M messed up when they unloaded RC Slocam. They were always top 10 and pulled in good recruits. Problem was they always lost to Texas.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Sherman under fire at Texas A&M....

    I am still blown away that A&M has been so bad/average for so long with the money they have.

    I don't think Sherman is the answer there and expect that he won't be there in a year or 2.

    Thats what I was thinking...I was in Kyle Field for the latest A & M beatdown of the clones and it wasnt pretty to watch!

    If the defense didnt play its guts out it would have been 65-10!!!!


    Oklahoma's recruiting in Texas is killing aTm and Baylor. Until that changes there isnt much hope for the bears or aggies!!!!

    Re: Sherman under fire at Texas A&M....

    For a second there I thought this was one of our members talked crap about a team that pounded us. That's like getting wailed on by the school bully, then mocking him after someone else roughed him up.

    That really doesn't sound a lot different then the general sentiment around here after some ugly losses the last several seasons. I'm glad it's finally someone else and not us for a change.

    That is what jumped out at me too. 4 wins out of 16 games against BCS schools and 2 of them were against Iowa State.
