Texas Bowl Matchup to Watch: Talent vs. Culture

Originally published at: https://pistolsfiringblog.com/texas-bowl-matchup-to-watch-talent-vs-culture/

The headline was worth stopping a scroll and taking a click, “Texas A&M officially lands best football recruiting class ever.” It’s been a year since the Aggies had the best recruiting class in history, according to On3. Texas A&M’s 2022 recruiting class featured eight five-star prospects, ranked as the best in the country by every major outlet. The Aggies’ Texas Bowl opponent, Oklahoma State, has had one five star ever, according to 247Sports — Bobby Reid in 2004. But a year after A&M signed that class both teams are still in the same place, except OSU’s roster with no five-star recruits actually has the better record at 9-5, compared to A&M at 7-5. And the Cowboys also still have the same coach, and have for the past 19 seasons. A&M fired Jimbo Fisher with two weeks still left in the regular season after six years leading the program. Associate head coach Elijah Robinson took over as interim head coach for the rest of the season, including the Texas Bowl. However, Robinson will be leaving College Station to become the defensive coordinator at Syracuse when his tenure as interim head coach ends. A&M has already hired former Duke coach Mike Elko…

Talent meaning they use to before they all hit the portal and culture as in they don’t have enough talent to hit the portal but ok. Not interested in watching a complete non factor game. Hope they at least all get a play station.

ATM lost 20 plus to the portal last year, 13 so far this year. I don’t know their rankings but a lot had to be 4-5 star kids that left ? That’s more than one full recruiting class !! They are much like Texas they have money to burn

Yet they end up in the same bowl as Gundy when he is having one of his best years. Guess we’re never gonna be able to compete if they have a good year. Of course we’ve never been able to compete with OU if they weren’t way down.

Jug your comments become more stupid every year. You wouldn’t know what a good year is anyway so no one uses you as a metic :roll_eyes:
Wait I know you can go have a drink with Weiburg , go tell him off like you did Holder :joy: How many of you ole crows sit together at games and biotch and gripe the whole game ?

Making the conference championship game? Since Gundy has only done it twice, I’d say it one of his best years.

Then why are boas mouthing Gundy now ? Or is that just your nature :flushed:
