Yep, he's gone.  Their AD said before the season began that he expected a certain number of wins or he wouldn't be back.  At least their AD has guts...something Jeff Long doesn't have.

He should have lost more games, it's worked for Bielema. Isn't that how correlation works?

Not surprised. Sumlin has underachieved at TAMU.

This is the kind of thing that Jeff Long needs to be doing right now: Letting a little slip to the media that Bielema wont be retained. People will calm down with the pitchforks.

Doubtful on both counts. Pitchforks are what we do?

I think you are confusing their AD with Long.

Long said the exact same thing about Bielema just before this season started.

$10.4 million within 60 days of firing...

Wish I had his contract.

It takes more guts to keep a struggling coach than fire them.

per footballscoop.com

Texas A&M: With yesterday’s 42-27 loss vs Auburn, Texas A&M dropped to 5-4 on the season. A&M now hasn’t beaten an SEC West opponent at home in 763 days. Change is coming; but source tells FootballScoop not to look for A&M to make a move before the end of the season unless something unforeseen were to occur. A&M finishes with New Mexico, then at Ole Miss and at LSU.

Something is odd in College Station.  Sumlin seems like a good coach but it's just not working out for him there.

Texas spread offense disease.  A&M will hire another spread coach.  They'll keep getting almost all of their players from Texas HS where the spread has overtaken and they'll continue to have defenses who underachieve and get worn down.

Agree. The 2nd half of the season meltdowns are the problem.  They haven't been consistent since Johnny Football flew the coop.

but you have to admit    that is a good job    football tradition is just ok  but all that talent within a hour or two or 3.  And yet all the Texas schools have fallen on hard times to a certain degree.  Texas Tech just ok to mediocre same with UT and TAM.  TCU is really the only school who seems to be doing well.

Something is odd in College Station -- they are aggies. 

They have a long and storied tradition of not quite ever getting it right.
