agreed.  Honestly, i was still good with giving Sumlin one more year, considering all they went through this year with injuries.  Now i'm disappointed that Jimbo didn't keep John Chavis.

Speaking of Jimbo, how appropriate is it that the Aggies have a coach named Jimbo?  Doesn't that just seem to fit our (outdated) hick reputation?

 Cheesy not by much, though!  Y'all holding up okay in big D?  It was 19 here in Cypress and a friend of mine from East Texas, can't remember where he's from another message board, woke up to 8 degrees!

So far so good, it was 16 when I got up, at 9:20 it's now 20! I think the pipes are okay, but taking the dog out to pee was painful. Glad all is well at your end. Back in the late 80's I was in Austin when it got down to single digits. It was well below what had been tested in quite some time and became a winter wonderland of broken pipes. There was a Jazz and dinner club over on Barton Springs rd. that had the building on concrete piers with parking (and apparently un-insulated pipes) underneath. The place looked like Carlsbad Caverns, and between the ice cave at the top of the hill and the now ice covered 12 uphill angled driveway I don't think anyone got up there for 3 days.

Wow, I thought this site was down for the count this time. I've never seen anything quite like this.

yeah, it really seems like you and I are the only ones left but it keeps saying bandwidth exceeded!

on another note, your man Herman certainly cleaned up this last recruiting cycle!  A little TOO well!

I liked that the class seems to fit what we need. Even when Mack was pulling in good classes there were times when I just couldn't see why we took some guy at DB when we seemed to need OL help.
Looks like your guys had a strong finish, should be interesting to see next year. The early signing period is going to make it interesting from now on with coaching changes. Maybe there will be a new sweet spot in the football year to fire and hire. Something like 3 weeks left in the season.

Interesting thought, that would require a real leap of faith on the coaching side as they wouldn't have a Sr. season to evaluate. You might even end up with a H.S. version of the not playing in the bowl phenomenon. UIL might pitch a fit!

Well if they've already got an offer, you want them based on thinking they're good enough from seeing them before their senior season, right?  If you're to that point, is a bad senior season really going to change your opinion after seeing their previous years?

Also, i think guys with an LOI already sent in would be less scared of the damage from doing playoff games.

As slowly as the NCAA seems to move on these type of things I think we are probably stuck with this for a couple of more years anyway.
The big div I schools are always going to get some talent, but can you imagine being a new hire HC at a smaller school or a non football school? Your first recruiting class would just be a throw away. Assuming you got hired because the last guy wasn't winning it's just going to take you that much longer to get your program in place. Considering that some expect instant winning (reminds me of a doofus that used to post here) that's a bad combo.

Essentially, that's what Herman himself said, though.  Why try so hard with a class that, statistically speaking, does very little to help a new regime.  Why rush and just recruit star ratings without being able to fully determine if they'll mesh.  most of a transition class was recruited by the previous staff and is more likely than not to be a square pegs in round holes, even if they're great players.  Although I have to admit, I think certain positions ought to be good in any system.  Wide receivers, running backs and Olinemen, for example.
