Texas A&M is the most underachieving college football program in the country
NFL Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp was recently critical of potential #1 overall NFL Draft pick Myles Garrett. Regardless if Garrett is the next Julius Peppers, or another Courtney Brown, today Colin called A&M out for turning out a long line of NFL underachievers, and underachieving as a program.
Despite being the second largest university in Texas, they’ve had one double digit win season since 1998. They’ve only finished ranked in the top 25 three times in the last 17 years. They have NFL caliber players, but in terms of draft prospects, they turn out a lot more Luke Joeckels and Johnny Manziels than Von Millers and Mike Evans.
Colin thinks A&M should be a perennial Top 10 program based on their resources and prime placement in arguably the top high school football recruiting state in the country. There’s something wrong with the culture if Bill Snyder is winning 10 games a year in the middle of nowhere at Kansas State and A&M has one legit contender in 20 years.
“Texas A&M, to me, is the most underachieving program in the country, and has been for years.”
Ex-Colts GM Bill Polian is right about his marijuana comments, even if ‘Pot Guy’ doesn’t like it
Colin has said on many occasions that he is pro-marijuana legalization, but he agrees with comments made by former Colts GM Bill Polian, who said that players who test positive for marijuana before the combine overwhelmingly don’t succeed in the NFL.
Colin pointed out that if you look at the best of the best in the NFL, they aren’t potheads. The issue of failing drug tests at the combine is more of an example of bad decision making than a drug issue. If a player can’t keep his hands off the pipe for a couple weeks before the biggest job interview of his life, what’s his decision making going to be like once he gets in the league? Probably not good.
“You do realize, Vince Lombardi didn’t wake up and get baked.”
