There's a thread on Gigem (a free one at that) where the sheep fornicators are complaining about their commits being ranked too low.
One sister-loving gomer fired off this gem:
Bobby Burton lost his creditability years ago and now Gerry is on the same homer bandwagon. Anyone who is a running buddy of Baron Flenory is a worthless POS IMO, and if you ever meet Gerry in person you'll find him to be another rude, arrogant, condescending sippycup homer. I did.

The sad thing is they believe what they type.
Gerry actually goes out and sees kids. The other networks continue to go off of highlight tapes and hype. I don't doubt the rankings here for a second, no matter how good or bad they might be for Texas in a given cycle.
Calling Gerry a POS is stupid and over the line and I hope Hamm and Bloom do something about that.
Posts like those are why Aggie fans will be considered the brown stain on the mattress when it comes to how they fit in the SEC hierarchy. There aren't enough sane Aggies to make up for the segment of that fanbase that quite frankly sucks at life and should consider throwing in the towel when it comes to their miserable existence.
I listened to some aggys last night who feel Sumlin will be fired in two years and then they will go after a big name.
Everyone has fans who complain about where there prospects rank and call out those who rank them. In that aspect aggies are no different from any other fanbase. Including those who wear burnt orange.
I had an aggy hiss at me in a business meeting because I was wearing a UT polo. It was rather amusing.
Ignore aggy. Problem solved.
I could not disagree more! I have not seen an aggy on her or any other site that has not complained and truly agreed that one of their prospects is rated too low because they committed to a&m and the UT mods somehow dropped them in the rankings, and they honestly believe that crap .
They are the most delusional retarded fan base on the planet period.
You're reaching here. 95% of us have the utmost respect for Gerry. Just cause 1 person posts this you're generalizing the rest.

Why bother going over to Gigem?
If one bothers to go to Gigem, why be surprised that the Aggies there think (i) their recruits are underrated and (ii) UT is evil and almost everything else imaginable about UT is flawed and against them.
If one bothers to go to Gigem, and reads their drivel and is still somewhat surprised by it, why bring it back to this board?

I'm not one to take up for ag, but just to play contrarian, I've seen plenty of people call out Lucci and his lists. Now I'm not comparing GH to Lucci, I'm just pointing out similarities
Looking at Sumlin's career as a HC I believe he may have a good year and then a bad year............he will not be consistent and will be gone in 4 years. One thing in his favor is they sold many season tickets this year. An under reported story over the past few years is how much trouble aggie had selling out their games. (unless it was the Texas game)
The new AD hire is going to be interesting because many times AD's like to hire their own man. I would like the football,basketball and baseball coaches don't have much room for error...........
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
Uhm, repetitive thread title is repetitive? Oh aggy, you amuse me so.
Lucci is a glorified tex ags poster that has been given free reign to try and ease the minds of the tards on that site and his rankings usually fly in the face of all of the national ones (although not as much lately)
Now comparing lucci to ketch's texas rankings I can see because yes he does the same crap as lucci.
But back to the original point. I rarely see someone on this site complain about were a commit is ranked, that goes for most big time programs I guess. Must be just the chicken little's that complain constantly.. but there is no denying aggy is the worst at this
Water is wet, sky is blue, etc. etc.
Don't wear polos, then.
Certainty is the enemy. I think.......
Wow. Don't know which Gerry Hamilton he met, but not the Gerry i know. I've known Gerry for about 6-7 years now. Literally one of the coolest cats I've ever met. The Baron Flenory comment is laughable.
I would but I am a casual guy in a corporate environment. Polo shirts are the most casual wear I can get away with unfortunately.
Is it worth bringing back to this board what they say?
Serious question. Does Bobby and Gerry control 247 rankings?
Take it up a notch. Make your ringtone "Texas Fight". That really kicks them in the crotch.
You should purchase one of these to wear at the office.
It's my understanding that Gerry is a big voice at the national meetings and I believe he has most control over the Texas rankings.
It's ok, once they start getting trounced in the SEC like they did in the Big 12, those seats will be empty again. I'm sure Bama and LSU will sell out much like Texas and ou did, but Ole Miss, Arkansas, and MSU will be as attended as Baylor or Kansas.
yes, and black Aggies area black, white Aggies are white, and recruiting fans bitch about how their players are ranked.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
well according to that first post bobby apparently cannot get a credit card or loan. I guess that happens when you lose your creditability
Hiss? Like a snake?
