They didn't ever own the SWC and they didn't come close to owning the Big 12 conference.  They will not own the SEC, ever.
This isn't yesteryear.

I wish we had an all brick facade on our stadium instead of that creamy yellow stucko.

There's no reason to close in the endzone until we start filling every seat for every game. There's also a reason aTm didn't dominate the Big XII and that's called poor coaching choices. They've got a winner now and UT is on the way down. It's the perfect storm for the Aggies. In one season, they did what we haven't been able to do, beat Nick Saban.

We could have but the priority was being able to see the field from the comfort of the BAC.


I'm sorry but that's just a dumb statement.

It's not that simple...You don't build more club seating because more students don't show up to sit in the upper deck or more low-income families don't buy the bad corners of the upper deck.  There's demand for club seating, so you build it.  Fans will pay for a good seat to see the Hogs.  They're only going to pay for terrible seats when we're good.

Sumlin inherited a ton of talent from Sherman.A lot of coaches look like geniuses their first year before they stumble. He may be a great coach, average coach or a flash in the pan. Time will tell.

It's way too early IMO to predict sustained greatness for A&M in the SEC.

Some of your ability to understand the magnitude of Texas aTm's inclusion in this conference is baffling.

We like to refer to the UA as a "sleeping giant", yet can't fathom aTm, with their unlimited funding, large, almost scary loyal alumni base, recruiting advantages and nationwide brand recognition as a sleeping giant as well?

These jokers aren't going anywhere. Living in Dallas for the last five years, I rarely saw aTm merchandise, much less people wearing it. Now that's ALL you see.

They just came in to this conference and BEAT Alabama their first year and in the process, their QB won a Heisman trophy. Now they're going to spend a quarter of what Jerry spent on Jerryworld and you guys act like they'll be battling it out with Mississsippi State year in and year out?

The reason they never fared well in their previous conferences is because they had to play second fiddle to UT. Now, they have their own identity in a vastly superior conference and their previously mentioned scary loyal fanbase has awoken and are ready to do what it takes to make a statement.

In five years, aTm will own this league.

A&M won't own anything as long as Saban is at Bama.

They had a great year this past year but that's all it was, ONE year.Lets see them stack up a bunch of those before we anoint them a dynasty.

I think their second year in the SEC will be harder than their first.

I agree with most of your post, but lets not get carried away with "owning the SEC".  This is a football conference and it belongs to Bama and Fla

I like the design we have for the new endzone except for one thing.

Take the second level of red seats and make that a line of luxury boxes. We need more of those a lot more than we need more red chair-back seats.

Do that, and you'll generate so much more revenue because boxes that close to the field will be a prime ticket and it will help reflect the noise back into the stadium.

Uhh, the road to dominating the SEC goes through Alabama, Arkansas and LSU.

Rice (50-27-3)
Sam Houston State (11-0-0)
Alabama (2-3-0)
SMU (43-29-7)
at Arkansas (25-41-3)
at Ole Miss (5-0-0)
Auburn (3-0-0)
Vanderbilt (0-0-0)
UTEP (2-0-0)
Mississippi State (3-3-0)
at LSU (20-28-3)
at Missouri (8-5-0)

I do enjoy watching the Aggies play, especially last year's game, but let's remember that most of us intelligent FB guys said that the Aggies would acclimate to the SEC style play a lot easier than Missouri did... and that was proven.  Their win over National Champions Alabama, while impressive, was a once in a lifetime shot.

Only Rice and SMU (the above stats are records of the Aggies 2013 opponents) have faced the Aggies more than the Hogs have... Alabama will NOT lose to the Aggies this year, nor will we.  LSU will continue their streak against the Aggies and Ole Miss... at home... is a very dangerous team this year.

Long term, I expect the Aggies to be 2nd - 4th in the SEC West, year in and year out.  They'll be one of the top 6 teams in the SEC, but they will rarely sniff the top, and they certainly will not dominate the SEC West.

People still refuse to believe that past history can and should be used as an indicator of how well a team does in the future. It's *very* hard to change that stigma.  But hey, you'll believe what you want.

Texas A&M is on a good upswing right now.  It will not last much more than another 3-4 years, where they'll settle into their roles as a solid upper-middle of the pack SEC team.

Back on topic now: The Aggies do have the fan base (which is actually larger than the Shorthorns and has more money) to be able to support and sustain the growth of Kyle Field.

Let's not forget that Texas A&M is an ACTIVE research university and has several studies under way right now that will eventually help shape the growth of the US. Trust me... Aggies have reasons to be proud of their school (and sports) and will spend what they need to, as they need to, where they need to.

I'd also be willing to bet that they run into capacity issues and have to expand again in the next decade. :)

I've never really been able to figure them out.  Huge alumni base with damn-near unlimited resources, right smack in the middle of recruiting heaven...the Dallas-Houston-Austin/San Antonio triangle (that's what, 18-20M people within a three hour drive).  They should have nearly as many NC's as Texas and OU imo.  Maybe the aggie jokes have some merit?

BINGO !  BANGO !  BONGO !   some of these young bucks who post on Hogville saw the Hogs lose to A&M last year in football and this year in hoops and then see huge plans for expansion at College station and are completely in awe of AGGY.... kiddies, I've never seen Aggy, when expectations are high, perform to said expectations....its just who they are....last time A&M was ranked in top 3 in the country, they rolled into Little Rock's venerable War Memorial Stadium, undefeated and ranked #2 in the country and thought to be unbeatable....this was 1975, and the twice beaten Hogs with the help of a Scott Bull to Teddy Barnes bomb breaking a 0-0 tie right before halftime aided the Hogs as they went on to roll Aggy 31-6 and earn the spot in the Cotton Bowl....Aggy hasn't been close to winning the NC since that December evening in 1975....moral to the story, younguns, Aggy will be Aggy and thus they will always be.

Mike, you're one of my favorite posters and a damn good journalist but don't let your self described hatred for the Ags cloud your otherwise good judgement! :)

I hope they do screw themselves. I just think the writing is on the wall for the Aggies to make some major noise over the next decade or so. I think they definitely surpass LSU and when Saban gives out, they'll jump up in the lead for a while.

Being old enough to remember the SWC, aTm was always a riddle.  Great recruiting classes but usually came up short of expectations.  I think the move to the SEC will help them tremendously. They were always in Texas' shadow or just one of many Texas schools in a league. Now they can differentiate themselves from everyone in the state. I could see them being like LSU. Usually in contention for winning the west.

if you guys feel some inner need to promote A&M to some priestly class of athletic endeavor, hey, go right ahead, it will take more than one year with everyone taking them lightly allowing them to have a 3rd place finish in the SEC....now, when they start hitting the BCS circuit, THEN, they MIGHT get my attention....but lets put the Crowns of Gold some of you are willing to annoint them with back in the closet where they belong

When we got to College station on Friday for the game last fall I wanted to check out the natural grass turf at Kyle Field. Supposedly nobody does grass better than those dudes.

It was impressive. However some young pinhead, an athletic department staffer, saw that I was wearing a Razorback Nation polo shirt.

He could not resist the temptation to come over and brag.

First the told me of their plans to make Kyle Field the largest stadum in the universe. 1.2 million seats. The upper decks would be taller than the Empire State Building.

Then he showed me their football operations center. "See that," he bragged. "That's our old Football Operations Center. It's already bigger than yawls. The new one will be a hundred times as big. A million square feet. Our weight room will be bigger than your campus."

He went on and on. Blah, blah, blah.

Finally I could not resist. "We've got one thing that you guys don't have," I said. "We don't have to live around Aggies."

That night we stayed in a motel just off campus. It was raining cats and dogs by the time we got ready to head to the stadium the next morning. I opened the door and was astonished to see that the gutters had downspouts that only came a few feet below the rooflline.

Our vehicle was parked directly below one of those downspouts. It might as well have been parked under Niagara Falls. We drew straws and Jason Carroll had the task of getting in the vehicle and moving it out from under the raging torrent.

It took him about two seconds to open the door and climb inside. He was was soaked and pissed.

Here we were in College Station Texas, a town supposedly full of the best engineers in the country, and those people managed to invent something I'd never seen before.

No way.

Over the next five years are they going to consistently beat Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, and now throw Ole Miss in the mix?  That is a schedule without adding whatever SEC-East team that is thrown at them.  Do I think they will have good teams - certainly, I expect them to have very good teams.  I also expect them to beat some of the aforementioned teams, but just because they beat Bama - doesn't make them the National Champions by proxy.

If you had parked the van in a spot marked Longhorn parking I could have given a thumbs up to those Aggie engineers. But alas it was not to be. I for years have had a saying about the Aggies. It is a place that good coaches go to die. How long before Sumlin succumbs to the curse?

You need to move out of Texas bro. Fo Realz... You have been brainwashed. I promise you they will be better than most on here give them credit for, but they will by no means "own" the SEC. look at Tennessee, Florida, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama and Arkansas. Each of those teams have had down years, decades even.  You can't dominate forever in this league, but if you can stay slightly above middle and make your runs while you can, you will still be a perennial top 15 team...

You need to walk the walk before you talk the talk. The Aggies have been talking for years with no sustained success. All talk with little doing. Even ole Dizzy Dean said, "It ain't braggin if you can do it. Do it, then talk.

A&M won't own anything as long as Saban is at Bama.

They had a great year this past year but that's all it was, ONE year.Lets see them stack up a bunch of those before we anoint them a dynasty.

I think their second year in the SEC will be harder than their first.

It looked like Sumlin owned Nick in that 1st match up. We will see if Nick can tie it up this year? It will be a good contest.

I've never really been able to figure them out.  Huge alumni base with damn-near unlimited resources, right smack in the middle of recruiting heaven...the Dallas-Houston-Austin/San Antonio triangle (that's what, 18-20M people within a three hour drive).  They should have nearly as many NC's as Texas and OU imo.  Maybe the aggie jokes have some merit?

With a team that he didn't build and didn't recruit.

I wish we had an all brick facade on our stadium instead of that creamy yellow stucko.

Fsu is all brick.  Blends right into the campus.  You have to look twice to know It is a stadium.  Classy

I've been there. I disagree. I think it looks rather bland. I've never understood why people think all buildings on a campus should look exactly alike. I think that is boring. Spice things up a bit I say. To each his own I guess.

I think it looks good. I think our stadium would look better with more of a brick facade instead of the creamy/yellowish stucko. The stucko makes it look unfinished and cheap.

I give credit to A&M for playing a great game in Tuscaloosa at an advantageous schedule. Nothing more. The current level of commitment from multiple SEC schools guarantees that no one will " own this league ". Alabama is the closest thing to " owning this league " in football but this will likely change when Saban retires/leaves. The current size of Kyle Field means less tears shed there after Nicky & The Boys come a callin.

I like a little brick but not all brick.

Been all over the campus. I worked in the panhandle. My former boss was a graduate of FSU and a friend of Burt's. I admit it's been a while since I've been there. They had just added onto the stadium. When I was there a lot of it looked the same and bland. At least in my opinion. What tracks? I honestly don't remember any tracks. Like I say it's been a while though.

EDIT: My bad I thought you were referring to FSU. I now see you wrote FAMU! I guess I should read slower!

I don't think Nick will get caught in that trap two years in a row, Ray. It may not even be close.

That's why no one likes us...WE are a cult. Alabama's a cult. Texas is a cult. LSU is a cult. OU is a cult. Missouri on the other hand, is NOT a cult.

Why do I remember creamy/yellowish Pre-fab Concrete Panels for the outside facade of RRS? I don't think that is "stucco". Maybe they can hire an artist to paint a brick design on the prefab concrete. ;)
