    It's not the coach. It's the tallent. Gotta recruit. As much love as there is for that school, you'd think they'd do better.

    Bunch of twelveth man guys, I see nothing wrong with the news letter.... So are you saying one of the Holy 12 was tipping the info ? I find that hard to believe. Smells like a doggie pile to me.

    Get a dog down, kick him.

    What are you talking about?

    Fran was giving inside information about injuries and players to a small number of people who paid big money for it. The money did NOT go to the university but directly to Fran.

    I'm willing to bet all you read were the quotes and not the article.

    That is one dumb aggie. :cool:

    I'm a UT fan, but I feel sorry for the aggs. I hope they get that program turned around so we can turn this state back to the power house it used to be. It's embarrassing for the entire state watching them get blown out of the water on national TV time and time again.

    They definitely need a new coach, somebody that can bring respect back to that once proud program. (plus, I'm tired of watching all our instate blue chippers walk up north to OU)

    Houston, again.
    "Supposedly" there were a dozen Aggy big wig supporters who were contributing $1,200.00/year to Coach Fran by buying his letter. The money was for the support of his website. Non-profit stuff and money given to charities etc. MIGHT have been all on the up & up, but it was totally stupid because it gives the apperance of not being on the up&up especialy as it was a secret sort of deal. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    What a boob. I'm no fan of the Aggies, but this a-hole put the program in jeopardy to line his own pocket. This info can definitely be used for gambling purposes, although Fran made them "sign something" so they wouldn't do that. *****!

    Fran is definitely gone this year, if not fired before the end of the season.

    Frank Beamer has been doing something similar for a while - although Beamer sells his for $39.95...

    I think it is shady but I'm sure it has been going on. I think Fran is ready to leave another school in disarray and run.

    The only disarray is Francis, his leaving would right the ship :)

    Oh, I agree. I didn't mean for the tone of my post to sound accepting of it..

    I want Fran out of College Station, in tact,..... in disarray - just GONE!!!

    Oh, I know, I was just commenting since I hadn't yet. Most of my Aggie friends feel the same way. Just not getting it done and too many close calls.
