Five Reasons Kevin Sumlin Should Not Go to A&M

Sumlin comin'.
Even as Cougar fans are trying to enjoy their first BCS run, eagerly anticipating a CUSA title tomorrow, they are worried.

Texas A&M has fired coach Mike Sherman, and rumors are rampant that the Aggies will go after Sumlin as their next man.

You really can't blame Sumlin for moving up and likely making more money. But there are many reasons he should turn down the Aggies and stay here.

Like these five:

5. Repeated SEC ass-kickings
Right now Kevin Sumlin has a glowing reputation. BY definition, any new coaching job he takes will involve a team that is not doing well, but with A&M he'll have the added touch of being forced to compete in the SEC. Every SEC school will be looking to humiliate a Texas team if for no other reason than recruiting. Every SEC fan will gleefully rub every loss in the noses of Aggies. It won't take long for things to go sour.

4. Houston's opera, ballet and theater
Much better than College Station's. And we're betting Sumlin already has purchased a block of tickets for next month's production of La Traviata.

3. The Coogs will be even more successful next year
FInally, injury-plagued Case Keenum will move on, opening up a spot for some real QB talent.

2. Slim Thug, Bun B & Paul Wall wrote a fight song
You want a new fight song if the Aggies are successful? Who are you going to get to write it, the local Rascal Flatts cover band?

1. Because Cougar fans really want an actual successful coach to stay, just this once
They can dream, can't they?

Hahaha this article is flawed in many ways. Houston would be 3-9 at best in the SEC. They barely beat UCLA and got stomped by Southern Miss at home. Sumlin is overrated and so is Houston.

Ok, reason #5 is legit..but the rest of your points are a joke! Good for you that you found someone to pay you for your (or lack of) skills. You must be a UH grad or have were not accepted to A&M.

This blogger is an idiot, case keemum will move on and they will get some real qb talent. He owns almost every passing record in college history you moron.

Here's the number one REAL reason Sumlin shouldn't drive up the 6: Aggy is racist.

Look up the REAL meaning behind the "Cougar High" chant.

Wow this might be the stupidest article ive ever seen. Case Keenum, leading the 2nd-ranked offense in the history of college football, is the best player that has or ever will go to houston. 

As for the rap fight song, we actually beat you to the punch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

this is the dumbest thing i ever heard, a 2nd tier program taking their head coach potentially moving to talk smack, especially after Texas A&M tried to get you guys to take their spot in the Big 12 only to be told NO by the University of Texas

Kevin Sumlin has done a 1st rate job at UofH.  Sure, he didn't recruit most of their elite players.  Houstonians know that.  All the more reason for us to stay quiet about that vital tidbit so the Aggies can over-pay for his services and find themselves doubly screwed 3 years from now when they fire him.

But he'll get paid, in the interim.

And he deserves a nice paycheck.

Think of it as a football mitsvah.

I'm not tinfoil hat dude, but you have to think Aggy is trying to throw UH off its game tomorrow.Aggy's worst nightmare is UH in a BCS bowl.  

That being said, UH has a better shot at BCS bowling then Aggy ever will in the SEC.

Let the Ag giant continue with its slumber.  UH is on the rise!

YOU are obviously flawed in at least one way.

Were YOU accepted by A&M?  For the sake of A&M's academic reputation I'd hope not.

And YOU are clearly NOT an idiot or moron!

Something tells me you shouldn't be the judge of any "stupidest" contests.

Apparently Houstonians like yourself aren't aware that Sumlin is a brilliant recruiter, who while at OU, was a huge part of recruiting a guy named Adrian Peterson. Don't fret Coogs fans, you've always got Phi Slamma Jamma, which is exactly how relevant your football program will be after Sumlin goes to College Station:)

Yeah and a&m is relevant, they won the big 12 one time and that was in 1998. Have fun in the sec, because your going to be the team everybody wants to play for an easy win.

Yes, which is why Aggy SHOULD take him, so Aggy can continue their tradition of nihilism.
