    Barner fans think they will be back in a couple of years.

    I could certainly see aTm being capable. Anything is possible, right?
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

I do not claim to be as informed or as smart as you are, but I am impressed with what the Aggies have accomplished this year. And I feel it's quite possible that they could snare another NC for the SEC down the road. I think next year in Tyler is going to be very interesting. Very interesting, indeed.



    Roll Tsunami, Roll!

    They would indeed be the one other team that has a chance imo.

    I don't think aTm will do quite as well next year w/johnny football. Running the triple option was something no one could stop at first but in just a couple of years, teams figured that taking away the pitch man would stop it because the qb would have to run it or try to find an open receiver. Teams will learn the key to stopping Manziel just as readily.

    Texas A&M might win one next year.
    Arkansas and Auburn have the facilities if the get the right coaching staff to be back in the hunt in 3-4 years, easy.

    True. Teams may learn to stop Manziel in the next few years.

    But the question was in regards to the larger scope of winning a national title at some point in the future. Given their recruiting base and resources, I think Texas A&M is probably the best bet to be a consistently good team in the future that will occasionally win national titles.

    Re: Realistically will another SEC West team not named Bama and LSU ever win a NC?

    In order of chances:

    Texas A&M <- if Bama and LSU get some serious sanctions against them.
    Auburn <- that's right - somehow they always find a way to get near the top of the division ~eventually~ because of being in the state as us.
    Arkansas <- that's right - they'll field a decent team once ever ten-fifteen years that *could* win it but they just don't have the coaching.
    Miss St <- no chance
    Ole Miss <- no chance

    The Mississippi's could go either way.

    Texas A&M will probably be able to own Texas recruiting now and they will have the added benefit of being able to dip in to SEC corners of the world now unlike the other teams in Texas. Not hard selling players you get to play against Alabama and LSU every year than Florida and Georgia is possible.

    Realistically will another SEC West team not named Bama and LSU ever win a NC?

    This is all relatively cyclical. I say yes it is possible thinking big picture.

    When you look at it there is a good possibility Bama will have down years again in the future also....and will rebound again. This is why I am enjoying this ride, and not getting cocky, being on top of college football right now because it will last forever. It is all too familiar in my memory of the troubles we endured from 2000 to 2006/7. I can really appreciate where we/Bama is now.

    Let's not lose focus. To know where you are going, you have to remember where you've been.

    No reason to think A&M couldn't make things happen. Going to be a monster long term.

    aTm will be the David (vs Goliath) every now and again to decent schoos but sorry, I don't see aTm ever becoming dominators.
