He's gone. A&M will not renew after hist contract expires next August.
$#@!ing Aggy making another retarded move. For all the hilarity that $Bill brings or brought, he has done a pretty bang up job at that $#@! hole. $#@!er made every hire except football. Each sport was pretty successful as a result. They blocked him out of the football hire and he got blamed for it. He wasn't in Sherman's corner. Move was forced on him, IIRC by the donors/big money. Same with Sumlin. Same with the SEC move. The last rational $#@!ing adult (if you can call him that) has been removed from the equation. Full on aggy from here on out.
At least he'll be able to say "I told you so" when it's all said and done.
Even if aggy dumped all their wadded up singles into a barrel marked football/baseball/basketball, they still would compete about as well as they have in the 12, which is to say not at all/somewhat/hardly...And their flagship sports (track, um...) would collapse.i wonder if they can pull a fast one on slive and simply decline to compete in all sports not named football, basketball or baseball
It seems to me that announcing that $Bill's contract will not be renewed this far in advance of it running out will hamstring aggy sports even further than it already is. Why would any AD or other school official make any long term agreements with $Bill, knowing that he has A) no support from the administration, and B) he will be out soon anyway, with no real indication which way the next AD will take things? Let's face it, aggy's real AD for the past year has been texags, influential alums, and meddling regents. That combination has made a "100 year" decision based on a herd mentality and perceived prestige, not stability. The next AD will be chosen, hell, probably already has been chosen (Sherrill), the same way. Do you make long term agreements with $Bill, or bowtie, or the BOR proxy?
Second, if you were coaching any of the "down ticket sports" like track, chick ball, golf, etc., this is notice that your program is about to be gutted to expand pyle field and the football program, and that your NCs don't matter like they used to. How long would you stick around if you were Pat Henry or Gary Blair? If you were in the running for the football HC position after Summlin, how would you take aggy seriously, knowing how $Bill was bypassed in the firing of Sherman, then made the scapegoat, and the slime that did it that way are now fully in charge?
Dumb aggy. Wait, that's redundant.
Love wouldn't provide details, but the Sun Devils are believed to have had major interest in Kevin Sumlin of Houston. But Greg Byrne's father Bill, AD at Texas A&M, threw something of a curveball by firing coach Mike Sherman four days after Erickson's ouster at ASU.
"I wasn't planning on making a change," the senior Byrne told The Seattle Times
There is some interesting reporting on this in the aggyland press this weekend. In kbtx's report, it sounds like it is bowtie's idea: http://www.kbtx.com/home/headlines/R...148338295.html
But in the Bryan Eagle's report, it sounds like it was $Bill's idea: http://www.aggiesports.com/football/...uture--7113279
Either way, from all of the comments that I have seen and heard, the assumption in aggyland is that bowtie and his folks are pushing $Bill out to get a more maleable AD in place, so the points in this thread stand.
One thought did occur to me, althought I think that $Bill is too professional to do this: what if he knows that staying until his contract is up will cause aggy the most turmoil and uncertainty, and he is staying for just that reason? If I were treated as shabbily as he has been, I have to admit that I would think about it. I wouldn't do it, but I would think about it.
$#@! the next HC. How will the pool of applicants for the AD job look right now assuming someone from the inside has not already been cheery picked? Your predecessor was allowed no control over his greatest asset, really his entire department, to the degree that he was finding out what was going on from his subordinates who were reading Billy Luicci. In the end, was "transitioned" away because he wouldn't toe the company line. I bet the best management people in sports are lining up in College Station for that job.... If you were in the running for the football HC position after Summlin, how would you take aggy seriously, knowing how $Bill was bypassed in the firing of Sherman, then made the scapegoat, and the slime that did it that way are now fully in charge?...
Patrick, you got a problem with Luicci?
now twitter's talking about RC instead of Sherrill
I thoroughly enjoy trolling him on Twitter.
You're right though, it's unreal how much they let that guy know... and how much influence his BS can have
College football really is a great soap opera for dudes. A&M's version of this has to always be one of the most interesting to follow as nothing ever really makes sense and the unintentional comedy is always off the charts. Where else but A&M would you have a foolish, unprofessional, slime ball like Bill Byrne as the story's protagonist? Also in this story you have the freakshow that it texags not only existing, but seemingly running the entire show. Truly an amazing sight to behold.
Baylor shattered attendance records this past weekend for the aggy baseball series. All of Baylor's biggest crowds in football are against aggy. Mulkey may say one thing, but $$$ rules, especially when your athletic department is as strapped as Baylor's is. Hell, your baseball coach says he wants to play 'em.
Also, with regard to the unprofessionalism of the aggy administration, don't forget that Bowtie claimed that Sherman wasn't owed his full buyout because Bowtie never bothered to sign the contract extension.

Aggy has 10 of the top 21 attended games at FCS, while Texas has 5...most recently the 2011 game. Aggy's biggest crowd was in 2006. Before 2011, Texas' biggest crowd was in 1990.

Well, it's not available so take your whining and stolen user name to Longhornfanzone.
compared to sherriswill he's a $#@!ing Saint, N.O. Saint that is.
ps, anybody that would torture aggy senior football players in the kyle locker room by making them blubber out that dirge of aggy wor hem for the last time as aggy immediately after Texas beat the everloving $#@! out of 'em is an alright in my book. RC did that so it's sherillllll for shore.
pps I can't find the you tube for this but I know it's out there, sidelines maybe? anybody know where this is? it's $#@!ing hilarious so if you know pls share.
