Things got much more interesting in College Station Tuesday evening as reports surfaced that Kevin Sumlin would be out of a job regardless of how the upcoming game at LSU plays out.
A&M's athletic office has not said anything about the report, maintaining that Sumlin is their head football coach.
Fans and alumni have taken frustration with the team's finishes, particularly with how the Aggies have performed in November under Sumlin.
"One Aggies assistant coach told SI he found out about the report when he picked up his cellphone and saw that he had six messages, two from A&M recruits", Feldman reported.
"The way they're treating the players and the coaches in the situation is weak af", former Aggies offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor posted on Twitter. Texas A&M now sits 7-4, meaning the 8-5 plateau was within reach, but if the report is to be believed, boosters must have chose to aim higher. "Certainly, we've had that experience since the beginning of the year". "There haven't been discussions about that", Sumlin said. I think our team has done a good job of focusing on the game at hand.
"We'll deal with it the way we've dealt with everything this year", Sumlin said. We'll continue to do that.
"We haven't really had a chance to talk to our team yet, because we haven't practiced yet (today) and all this information came out after practice (yesterday)", he said. Our staff and our coaches have done a nice job of handling it. "You try to teach lessons and dealing with adversity, that's what life's about".
