    according to the DMN - there's only 1 catch: he'd have to take a demotion and pay cut:

    Its a no-brainer. everybody knows that the way you climb the ladder of success is to accept a position of less importance and responsibility and take a pay cut at the same time.

    I hear A&M is also going to approch Google about selling them stock at $75 per share.

    why in the world would Major leave a Coordinator position at a program like Bama to just be a ******* QB coach at aggie for less pay?

    only aggy would do this.

    who are they looking at for OC? Mike Leach?

    DC? Jim Tressell?

    word out of College Station is that if Major turns them down, they're going after Jason Garrett to be QB coach

    Bill Cowher for DC? This is stupid, even for them. Let's see: We will offer the Alabama OC the QB job here at aggyland. Oh yeah, the Alabama OC was named after an Alabama player and he played at UT. The longer I think about it, the funnier it gets.

    Word is that Bill Bellicheck is a lock to be the new LBers coach at Agriculture. It's a step up.

    We can laugh and make fun, but Major was on the A&M campus last week.

    Why he would take it:

    1) It'll be as OC not QB coach
    2) Joe Penry
    3) Saban works his assistants like slaves
    4) Saban blames everything on his assistants; he is never to blame (sound familiar Mackovic fans?)
    5) Alabama alums and press have not been kind in spite of averaging over 30 points a game with a QB who is not as good as the Top 25 HS QBs in Texas.

    Reasons not to take it:

    1) Under Jackie & RC, some Aggie assistants went on to really good jobs (ND, UCLA, Ole MIss, Auburn - Bob Davie; Bob Toldeo; Tuberville). Of course they bombed except for TT, who just can't seem to quite get there. Since then, the assistants coming out of Brazos County have not done so well.
    2) He only needs to visit with Les Koenig, Jr about where he'll be in four years when Sherman is once again an NFL assistant.
    3) OC at Alabama with Saban (even with Pendry) is likely a more visable position than HC at A&M much less an assistant.

    Hard question - Is Major Applewhite destined to become hths generations Jim Helms? Many similarities in the two thus far but particularly their understanding of the game.

    It was my impression that Major has a very good mentor relationship with Greg Davis (e.g. Major talking with and asking GD for advice right before the 2006 Rose Bowl). Aside from the backward career step in taking a demotion and pay cut at a lesser BCS football program, it would be (IMO) a clear slap in the face to Mack and GD to take any A&M position while Mack and GD are still at Texas. Not to mention that he knows full well how Longhorn fans would feel about it.

    I say no chance this happens unless they change the offer to be the OC.

    Aung San Suu Kyi has been offered $ 2.1 mil to take over their men's bassaball program.

    Stephen Hawking is going to be the head coach for the meat judging team for $ 3.3 mil & a lifetime supply of batteries.

    For the competitive sum of $ 1.2 million, Marlee Matlin is going to helm their up & coming auctioneering department.

    It's reported that Dr. Ruth Westheimer will be taking on the collegiate Rodeo team & is going to handle the Bulldoggers herself while an assistant has been found in Nicole Ritchie for Saddlebronc. $ 5.6 million for the good Doc & Nicole took a pay cut to come in @ $ 5.5 million.

    Doctor Jack Kervorkian will be the director of media relations & advertising in his new offices with The Batt. Opening figure for negotiations was $ 6.6 million.

    Dollar Bill is reportedly "ecstatic" over locking in these hires.

  30. i think this is a slap in the face to major and i hope he takes it at such and publicly lambastes the farmers.
