Looks like somebody got a hold of mccombs, and told him to shut his big mouth and quit embarrassing the program.

Manziel was a Sherminator recruit.

But that belongs in an A&M thread.

Just sayin

I think Sumlin deserves plenty of credit for Manziel's success even if he didn't recruit him. Sumlin was the HC for 2 of the 3 years Manziel was on campus.

But I don't know which three NFL QBs can be credited to Sumlin with Manziel included. Ryan Tannehill was definitely a Mike Sherman player. Sumlin developed Case Keenum.

You might be right - that kid's doing a yo-yo act.

Actually he was a Chip Kelly recruit and commit. Of course, it was predictable he would bolt to the Aggies when offered. Oh well, guess we we just have to settle for Mariota.

In many instances, it's a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't! Don't take the opportunities, and one gets criticized for not taking them! Take the opportunities, and one runs the risk of lack of support! Those are real issues that need to be discussed regarding hiring coaches from certain backgrounds!
It's not abnormal for recruits to decommit when you have a coaching change. In fact, i'd decommit too until i knew how i'd fit under the new coach's system.
