I think he was banned.
A&M is already really good. They have the two most important things there are to any football team a great head coach and great QB. Now with Johnny winning the Heisman they will be getting top recruits from all over the nation. It might not happen next year but it will a year or two from now. You must be a butt hurt Longhorn fan.
That would support your argument wouldn't it? Too bad it's not true.
A&M is a LONG way from winning a NC. They won't win it while Johnny Football is there.
don't go full ******
There are too many moving parts to make a bold garuntee for a national title. Ole Miss, Arkansas, or Missouri could surprise A&M and knock them out of contention. That doesn't even include to games against LSU and Bama. Sumlin will keep the aggies in good bowl games but beyond that there is no telling what may happen.
Actually his point has some merit.
1. SEC school
2. The guys UT usually recruits now shifting to A&M
3. Having the returning Heisman QB will guarantee A&M will be in the national light every week.
Hate it or love it, but the Aggies are in position to get really good. This does nothing but improve their already rising recruiting stock. A&M could quickly get in the elite class of the big boys who can pick and choose whomever they want.
A&M has had elite talent, the difference now is coaching. They will continue to climb so long as they can keep sumlin
Unless they move a&m to somewhere besides College Station TX they ain't getting the best recruits from across the nation.
Sumlin is solid coach, UH has to be pissed their last two coaches were Kevin Sumlin and Art Briles and they didn't play in an AQ conference so couldn't keep them.
The key to Manziel success is real good o-line, he'll play three good years if they keep that up.
The o-line was a point of strength because it returned 4 starters with 3 of them having at least two years of experience. The center was a 4 year starter but he is being replaced by freshman Mike Matthews, brother of Jake Matthews. The two guards are sophomores and will likely stay for two more years. I think the inside of the Aggies line will be fine over the next two seasons, but I have no idea what is going to happen with the tackles.
Matthews and Joeckel are headed to the NFL and Joeckel could be a No.1 overall pick so I see no reason for him to stay. I've heard they are making their decision together so if Joeckel goes so will Matthews. If Matthews would stay and slide over to LT we have a RS-Freshman and a true freshman sitting behind him on the two-deep that could play on the right. Matthews could also increase his draft stock and go higher in the first if he sticks around. The good news is all of these guys were recruited by Sherman and the one thing he did well was build an offensive line.
2 more years in college and he'll probaly be a top 10 draft pick
He needs to continue working on his passing, I saw him make a lot of throws this year that you cannot make in the NFL.
I don't think Joeckel will be the number 1 pick but there is still a long way to go before that decision is made.
In other news, RSJ committed to A&M today.
He will most likely go top 5 at worse top 10
I think Matthews still leaves and will most likely go top 20.
I will take either one on next years Cowboys Oline. I prefer Joeckel but dam if I am going to cry if Dallas grabs a guy like Matthews
Imagine the Aggies if Jonathan Gray had commited to College station instead of Austin.
Imagine if Mack brown had let RG3 and manziel go to Texas as QBs instead of being a complete idiot and telling them they would be DBs and forcing them to go elsewhere. Garrett Gilbert was more costly to us than most outsiders can even begin to realize
Hey now, haven't you heard Mack's new QB recruiting strategy is to just follow Art Briles around and see who he likes
As Tim Coliwshaw said, every school's strategy who needs a qb should be recruiting whomever Mack brown is recruiting to play DB, you'll end up with the next heisman winning QB
A&M is very deep at RB already. They didn't get Gray but they had Trey Williams, who was also a 5-star RB and they have 2011 5-star RB Brandon Williams transfer from OU. A&M hasn't had much overall success over the last 10 years but they have been a good place for RBs - Mike Goodson, Cyrus Gray, Christine Michael, and now the guys they have ready for the future
I heard Mack Brown wanted Manziel at DB because he was capped at QBs but the DB coach said no Manziel is a QB. I can't blame him for passing on Johnny as Johnny wasn't even first choice as starter coming into training camp. Showers is a better pocket passer and had the job after spring practice. I am a little surprised he stuck around when he could be starting at almost any other FBS school in the country.
