08:19 AM ET 06.08 | As Thanksgiving stories in June go, this one was delicious. Just a day after former Texas A&M coach Jackie Sherrill told radio personality Bo Mattingly that Texas A&M and LSU would play a prime time game on Thanksgiving night, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva denied that anything was set in stone during his own radio interview. "It's already been discussed," Sherrill said Wednesday. ... But Alleva wasted no words in shooting Sherrill's comments down. "Well, that's totally wrong. I don't think Jackie knows what's going on," Alleva said on an interview found on Bayou Bengals Insider. "I don't think he's been at SEC meetings and I don't think he's knows what's up."

This is not a surprise. Not the first time Jackie Sherrill ever popped off.

"I don'th think Jackie knows his **** from a hole in the ground." Kind of embarrassing for Sherrill. Alleva could have been a little more diplomatic. But you know how those LUS's are.
Di<kheads.

I can smell the popcorn popping already. LUS will have a field day with this.


Geez, can't those silly ol' aggies keep a muzzle on their ex-coaches? Especially when he's doing something as stoopid as calling out the AD of last year's league champion?

Are you saying we're nothing but a bunch of loudmouthed, ill-informed old men that like to spout off about stuff we know nothing about?

You guys give JWS a hard time, but he said the same thing about aTm going to the SEC before talks happened. He has friends inside the SEC offices (see Templeton, Larry). I wouldn't write it off just yet. Also Alleva denied that anything was set in stone. Alleva didn't say that there haven't been any talks about the possibility.

You're right, K Doggie. He didn't deny there had been a discussion. Just that JWS didn't know Jack about the details. Maybe he wanted to be the one to make the announcement and JWS trumped him.
