I think losing Allen is better than losing Murray.  Allen could end up an NFL QB - Murray is a faster Johnny Manziel.  He'll be fund to watch.

Well Ricepig I went to an A&M site to see what they were saying, about Allen leaving.  I'm not saying it won't happen now (2016), but I'll admit they've fumbled the Perfect Storm opportunity.  If they would've had a season, like the Hogs (finishing strong), I'd still be confident about my predictions.  But now I think they've given up that recruiting advantage they temporarily held (or at least shared) over Texas.  Perfect Storm is based mainly on recruits. A&M has absolutely everything needed for a top tier program, on paper.  However I think the article said 5 QB's have transferred since Manziel left.  Why? Kyle Allen replaced Kenny Hill (TCU), just like Murry is replacing Allen (maybe Oklahoma).  It was kind of expected - you pointed out the potential problem when they signed Murray.  Is Sumlin the right coach?  Anyhow I predicted that by the end of this season (2015), everyone would realize A&M is on the eve of dominance.  Didn't happen!  :)

It basically tells you that the SEC is a tough..........anyway, it will be interesting to see how Sumlin handles/survives these late season stumbles. I agree, they have the talent, especially on the offensive side, but will they put it all together?

I wanted to see Kyler play QB - heard he's going baseball.  Ricepig, I get an out clause since I made my predictions around them having at least 1 of 3 QB's who've all transferred, don't I?  LOL  That's crazy.  Texas Longhorns must be eating this up!   ::)

Yeah, they are from what I've read, lol. Sumlin says Murray will be at practice tomorrow from what I've read, I guess we'll see.

Friends with a TECH Player, from Houston, who's a Longhorn Fan.  Asked him if he was enjoying A&M's destruction.  Well he told me that Ricky Seals Jones is his cousin and Ricky say's both Allen & Murray were  worried about competing with some freshman from the Dallas area.  He said this kid was a freshman this year and legit.  I looked up the roster, there are 5 QB's, but I can't figure out who this might be nor any QB from around Dallas.  We might get to see all 5 in their upcoming bowl game.  haha

Worked out well - Murray is transferring to Oklahoma.  He'll play against Texas  ;D 
Oklahoma is one of Allen's four choices also, wouldn't that be something if Allen ended up there with Murray.

Perfect Storm fizzled out before coming a shore!  Coaches will be fired after this bowl game.  A&M will lose (have lost) the recruiting advantages they were getting from moving to the SEC, the Manziel effect, and Longhorn crash.  They might put together winning seasons, maybe even next year, but they've blown the unusual opportunity they had.  Seals said the new OC ran Allen and Murray off.  I missed!

They traded QB's, I believe since Knight only has one year left, Oklahoma owes them a QB to be named later.
