A century of football says otherwise.
Have you objectively looked at your defense? When has Sumlin ever had an avg defense?
SteelB, he's talking about right now, not a century of football before. Also, let's be real and talk about A&M after it transitioned from a military college to a more conventional university.
The defense has the quality in terms of recruits. Right now it is young. It will improve by next year. We've got young guys out there - Darrian Claiborne (who looks like the answer at ILB), Isaiah Golden, Devante Harris.
They have all the talent to make the jump to at least a decent defense, it's up to Snyder to use that talent. They play bad now, but talent + experience should result in improvement next year.
As far as the future is concerned:
Rivals has A&M's 2014 recruiting class (for now) ranked at 13, USC is at 63. It doesn't matter if it's Manziel or whatever - relevancy brings recruits, and recruits set up success for years to come.
