"The Aggies beat Arkansas (1-2, 0-1) for the sixth consecutive year, tying a school record originally accomplished from 1938-1943. Texas A&M Coach Kevin Sumlin improved to 6-0 against the Hogs, while Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema fell to 0-5 in the series." If you lose 5 in a row and never beat an opponent it's not bad luck. Bielema has lots of excuses but they don't change the fact that he's never beaten A&M. His overall record at Arkansas isn't very good either. Arkansas hasn't done well since Jeff Long fired Bobby Petrino but Petrino is doing very well at Louisville.

Bielema says he prays with the team before and after every game. He needs to stop depending on god who is not on the payroll.
I looked up Petrino's lifetime record: 112 wins 44 losses
4 yrs at Louisville, 4 winning seasons then AR where after the first year 3 winning seasons, then Middle Tenn with one season a winner before rehired at Louisville with 3 winning seasons and a ranked team this year.

Watching our defense I can believe we will lose to a lot more teams.

Do you think Jeff Long deserves another 500k bonus?

Well, thank goodness for that new 3-4 defense or A&M would have beaten us worse than they did. Due to the huge buyout, Bielema will be with us a very very long time. We should beat New Mexico State so we will feel better.

So how is the highest paid state employee performing? Let's give all that cash to a few great surgeons instead.

There are professors on Campus that could use some of that money, no more than some of them make, that money would go a long way in giving raises or hiring more... better than throwing it down the drain...

I couldn't agree with you more KnuckleBall. That money would be better spent educating future generations versus paying some hack to coach a wussified version of rugby.

What was so "unbelievable" about it??!! I believed the hapless Hogs would lose so much that I bet money on it! Thanks to A&M for covering the spread!! Is Bulimia auditioning for My 600 lb Life??!!
