Notes from Bob Sturm interview

* The Ticket is bringing back their college road trips, and naturally, the first place they wanted to go was to Aggieland. A&M does college football just as well as anybody between the scenes of Kyle Field and the overall game day atmosphere.

* Living in the metroplex, he is surrounded by Aggies. His first game in College Station was 2001’s red, white and blue out against Oklahoma State in which he wore blue. A few weeks later, he came back to Aggieland with his show when A&M played Notre Dame. He’s been down with the show at least four or five times and never leaves disappointed.

* He has personally been behind A&M’s move to the SEC the whole time. It was definitely an ambitious move, but that’s the whole point of sports. It will be a very big challenge, but given the college football landscape, he can’t see a downside to moving into the country’s best conference. A&M should also move up the recruiting ladder in the state of Texas, and it should put the Aggies on at least equal footing with the University of Texas. He’s really enjoyed SEC football the past few years, and now it should get even better by having a local tie to the league.

* Back when the schedule came out and they planned the road trip to College Station, he expected this game to be a tossup. He realizes that the Razorbacks have had a down season to say the least, but he was still shocked by the point spread coming out of Las Vegas earlier this week. Arkansas is still loaded with top-end talent at key positions which makes him think that the two touchdown point spread is even crazier. He expects A&M to win, but it certainly will be a big hurdle to finally get an SEC win on their resume.

* He can’t give up any secrets as to whether 1920’s style reporter Scoops Callahan will be making an appearance this weekend, but Callahan has made appearances in the past.

The notes are good but the random, humorous stuff isn't transcribed because it doesn't really translate in written format. To get the most out of this interview, it's best to watch it or listen to it.

Good stuff from Bob Sturm ... really glad that he could make time for us today!

As many of us have said, they really do,like and are good to the Aggies on the ticket. Dan just likes to poke a stick at everyone so don't be sensitive.

I wouldn't go that far. Rhyner likes A&M, and I think Bob is a closet Aggie, but the rest of them would rather the Aggies not win a game.

I don't agree with that.

I'm not saying the whole station drinks maroon koolaid but you're being too 'persecuted Aggie'

The only true hater on the Ticket is Corby "the ******" Davidson. I used to hate the guy but now realize he deserves pity, because he chose TCU over his dream school OU. How does one live that down?

^you hate him because he criticizes a&m when we do something stupid or suck at football for a decade. his rooting preference has nothing to do with your stupid hatred.

I don't hate Corby I feel sorry for him. The guy is a know-nothing idiot who throws his opinion around about everything as if it was fact.

That's basically the job description for most of these radio personalities with reputations based on entertainment rather than accuracy. We'd all love the little pr*ck if he talked about tu the same way and left A&M alone. Sturm and Norm are the only ones who try to be objective.

You are right, but of all the personalities on The Ticket, he's the most egregious. Look at each person and look what they bring to the table from a sports knowledge standpoint. Then look at Corby. What is he an expert on other than himself and his 'brahs'? The dude is out of his league and has to throw HSOs out there to cover his inadequacies.

Agreed. It's no coincidence that Sturm and Norm are so much more knowledgable. They don't NEED to shock people with HSOs to keep the listeners interested.

Corby's just there to ruffle feathers. The Ticket is more of an entertainment & sports hybrid. He's really good at what he does, which is to get people going and keep them listening
