+1... I don't know. Now we are talking about how badass Arkansas is and how they are going to steal recruits from UT.
This one could be in for the long run.

Maybe y'all can find something to agree on. How about this - aggies suck!
I don't concern myself with teams that aren't on our schedule. Besides, ignoring them is far more intolerable as most Aggies' ultimate goal in life is to fight for our mind share and prove to us that they matter.
You brought up Arkansas. All I said was badass arkansas was very badass under Petrino, considered a NC contender and 3rd best team in the sec behind Bama and LSU before the implosion. You point to this year as a reason why no one would want to go there but do so with zero knowledge of who the next coach will be or whether recruits would be interested. Your ignorance knows no bounds.
“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
Just going back through some things, actually trying to find the 2010 and very early 2011 threads where the debate raged over whether Brown could manage a turnaround or not, and why or why not, and this is one of the threads I've come across so far. Unfortunately the search mechanism on this site sucks or I'd have already found the stuff I was looking for.
Anyway, I am quoting myself for truth. Deal with it. MA wasn't the guy who left, but the point stands and the rest reads like a prophecy. And the entire premise of this thread still makes me want to vomit, as do the Mack Brown apologists all over the thread.
