I wonder what the deal is at TAMU. Looking back over their history, they are always second fiddle to Texas and really never can be a consistent winner. Bear had them winning until "momma called". He comes to Bama and the rest is history. Bebe's coaches his alma mater and gets fired after the 71 season and only having one winning season. Comes to Bama wins a natty and averages 10 wins a season. Franchione comes in and fixes the Dubose debacle then tucks tail and runs to aTm and averages 6 wins a season before he is let go. Some places you can win at, some places you can't.
I wonder if it is just a Texas thing and aTm are run like Texas and the Dallas Cowboys. The filthy rich millionaires pulling the purse strings have too much input and need to shut up and let the coaches do their job. Either way, I think Lane would need another re-hab if he went to aTm. Of course, he might just take his money and move out west and start surfing.
