SMU made a commitment to keeping the best DFW talent at home ... and they found themselves having to out-bid OU, A&M and Arkansas for some of the studs. They were just simplistic and blatant about it. Then they branched into other parts of TX and outbid for Dickerson, James and others ... and the rest is history.

The year that A&M and Auburn were on probation ... they could have played for the NC they were that good!!! I hope it was worth it.

Right-I'm sure that Sumlin has already had inquiries about his interest in other coaching jobs. If A&M keeps winning, he'll get many more.
