Fran's last game against texas....

It was bizarre, and backwards and amazing all at the same time.

After 4 years of watching him run the QB into a brick wall, we run this multiple option spread passing attack with McGee who hadn't previously passed like that since high school.

After watching 4 years of disinterested complacency on the sideline, he was at the bench, involved in meetings, yelling, motivating and coaching.

He was certain to be fired. But the players played and coaches coached. Not sure if it was the "win one for the gipper so he goes out in style game" or what. But it was weird.


I'm prediciting Sumlin is fired. This team goes 4-8.....


But we beat LSU in Sumlin's last game.


All else said, he was a tremendous offseason coach.

Yeah, losing to Baylor is pretty much a firable offense.

Back in those years, losing to Baylor was a yearly event. My 5 football seasons as a student 78-82, we were 1-4 against Baylor and the one win, we got something like 6 turnovers and still had to hold on to win. But once Jackie got it going, we seldom lost to them through the end of our big 12 run.

Yes, I remember that game. That's how Fran had coached at Alabama before coming here, getting beat by Utah and becoming infatuated with the run option. He finally coached in that last game, showed some emotion on the sidelines and won. Then quit after the game in the post game press conference.

Sumlin poops better results than anything related to Fraud Fran. No comparison.

definitely was a fun game, especially following on the heels of that classic 2006 win at tu the year before. one of the greatest drives in Aggie history emgineered by McGee.

Starting with Emory, I was at all those games. Don't think I can stand going to Baton Rouge for Sumlin's. Fran's last one was a bright spot. How about first games?
Tom Wilson---beat Rice
Jackie Sherrill----lost to Boston College
RC Slocum----beat LSU
Fran---beat Arkansas State
Sherman---lost to Arkansas State
Sumlin----lost to Florida
Next coach gets NW La State
Cooter Brown is my designated driver.

I was told, at the game, by someone in a position to know, that Fran was told he was gone before the game.
The same guy told me Sherman was the new HC that evening following the game.

Jackie Sherrill's teams were 1-6 in season openers (Only win was UTEP, and they bounced the tying field goal off the upright as time expired)

Lost to Boston College, Cal, @ Alabama, @ LSU, LSU, Nebraska

I mean, ESPN reported that Fran was going to be terminated because of the newsletter sometime around the Miami game... not exactly a surprise when he was let go.

BC was a legitimate football program in the 80's. Not sure why we lost to Cal.

If we're 3-8 going into LSU, I'll be shocked if Sumlin is on the sideline.

I remember - and it may still be my favorite game I've ever attended at Kyle. Although I started going to games in the Fran era so my options of good games to choose from at Kyle Field are severely limited.
