I wouldn't want to play Baylor again til they keep winning like this for another few years and they affect our recruiting
While even though Texas has had down years recently theres still a perception that they are better than A&M
I hear you, but the last 6 years A&M was 4-8, 6-7, 9-4, 7-6, 11-2, 9-4....doesn't scream amazing.
Baylor was 4-8, 4-8, 7-7, 10-3. 8-5, 11-2...very similar, they both turned there programs around the past 3 years.
You have to be skeptical as a fan to see if you can keep the success without Manziel. Right now A&M is getting mostly any in state recruit they want and are extending into SEC territory. HUGE next two years for Sumlin, he has to get this defense right while he can capitalize on the hotness of the program.
