Sumlin and Briles

We will now see just how good Kevin Sumlin and Art Briles really are. Both have had the benefit of coaching exceptional talent behind center for their college football coaching careers. Briles at both the Univeristy of Houston and Baylor and Sumlin at U of H. Each coach has always had a defense that was certainly suspect. Now that Sumlin has (foolishly) gone to off to Aggieland to lead them to SEC glory (lol), and Briles does not have RGIII.......We will see.

I predict that Baylor will revert to Bear football that we are all familiar with and the Sumlin will lead his team to about five or six victories a year (at best). The Aggies will probably have to settle for no more than 3 or 4 in conference wins.

I just looked at the Aggies' schedule, and I think your "3 or 4" is optimistic. Three, maybe, but not four.

Geaux Tigers.

I believe they open with Louisiana Tech. I am not sure they will have what it takes to win that one. Hard to believe with the recruiting advantage that the Aggies have over any of the non LSU Louisiana schools, but I am doubting an Aggie victory.

If Sumlin can get the Aggies competitive in the SEC then he will be considered a brilliant coach. I like him a good deal, but believe he made a huge mistake in going to College Station. Well he does make a great deal more money
There is that.
