    This is a fantastic hire. Relatively young and with a great resume as a player and coach. Name recognition in California and Texas.

    Syko has promised to get on board and stop his foolishness, so I'll give him BOTD.

    We'll see when LOI Day gets closer and the number of DTs signed falls below his expectations ("ALL OF THEM recruits should be DTS!")

    Meh. Sherman was a lousy HC, I'm not going to hold that against Walters.

    Also, the NCSU offense was way better this year than it was last year.

    I don't think he has been anywhere long enough to get a good feel for how good of a recruiter he is either. Mac obviously chose him over a pretty solid holdover (BK), so he must see some potential there.

    Dude earned a Bachelor's AND Master's degree from Stanford in 4 years, while playing football. He's smart. Aggie and smart do not mix. Not surprised they hate him.

    Just tifwiw, but aggie fans were claiming some stats where they had the "most drops on cfb" and he was basically a complete non-factor in recruiting

    It sounded like he was only hired right before the 2011 season, so I'm not sure why it says he was there for 2 years. The staff was then let go roughly 4 months later.

    Not even going to try to blame drops on the WR coach. "So guys, when the ball is coming at you, just like, put your hands around it"

    I can see why Aggieland was upset. If there's one thing they do well there, it's squeezing their balls.

    We'll learn a lot about his recruiting abilities with Joshua Jones. Hopefully he can close

    Quick question. Do you think he advertised his offer from Arkansas to because he wanted puff himself up and let everyone to know he got it, because he wanted to thank them for the offer(unlikely- why would you thank them via twitter), or because he wanted to endear himself to Buff fans?
