Get off the Serous Stuff when talking rivalry. It's artificial offense for the most part and doesn't interfere with working together as a team elsewhere.

It looks like Texas is taking some hits on the recruiting trail. A few Texas commits have flipped to A&M, seemingly.

Short term pain for long term gain?

Anytime there is a coaching change there are going to be recruiting hits. Different coach, different philosophy, different recruiting faces. We can only wait and see down the road what happens.

Yessir! A&M and Sumlin are digging a stronghold in Texas now, and are winning the recruit battle for local talent. The move to the SEC has done wonders and A&M is now the school to be at in Texas. Pretty good for a little sliver of East Texas huh?

None of the flips have been a big deal. Alaka was a good one, but he's probably not going to be eligible due to grades, and wind up at Juco for a few years.

Henderson, the DT, has flipped 2-3 times already, so I don't think you can count on him sticking with A&M until he signs the papers.

Are there any others that flipped to A&M? I know UT lost a few more, but I don't think any others committed to A&M.

There are rumors floating around that Alaka's signing confirmed that Nick Harvey is staying with Texas A&M - he took a visit to Austin so there were some concerns about that. TexAgs radio reported that Connor Lanfear, another 4 star, is going to flip to Texas A&M soon. Edit: Lanfear is 2015.

I haven't heard anything about Alaka's grades, though. Sure you're not thinking of Hoza Scott?

Also a possiblity that Armanti Foreman might decommit from Texas, but that would be worthless as we're already ridiculously stacked at WR.

Now we just need to steal that safety Steven Parker out of OU's hands and we're set.

Their new coach however had the same number of first round picks as A&M. Most in the draft. And he recruited them himself.

So how long are the longhorns going to claim Louisville accomplishments as their own? I even saw some longhorns claim the A&M and Mizzou draft picks because they were recruiting "while <the schools> were in the Big 12"

Portland state & Maine had players drafted. That is embarrassing.

Didn't say that the Longhorns had three players drafted of their own. I said the coach UT just hired put three guys into the first round of the draft. Is that incorrect? Were Aggies riding UH's coattails when they pointed out Sumlin's track record before he was hired? Sheesh.....

80 years of having a player drafted, an amazing run. Anyone know who has longest streak currently?

I wanna say Michigan but that's a complete shot in the dark.

EDIT: It's USC, according to source:

A single move, a Texas-sized ripple
ESPN Big 12 reporter Max Olson breaks down the 103 coaches
throughout all levels of football that were affected
by Mack Brown resigning from Texas.


Quote:
When Mack Brown gathered his team following a Saturday practice on Dec. 14, 2013, and revealed his plan to resign, he set off a chain reaction in the college football world.

Among his peers, the effects of Brown's move are still being realized six months later. This was a Texas-sized boulder in the coaching pool, and it caused a tremendous ripple effect.

Directly or indirectly, Brown's decision to leave Texas affected the jobs of 103 coaches and influenced coaching changes at 47 college programs, four NFL organizations and two high schools. The impact of the legendary coach's departure was felt at...
