Thats the best news I've heard in weeks. He could be a HUGE help back there with fresh NFL knowledge(Does Dallas run a 3-4?) and work ethic. Even better to know that we welcome him in so quickly as a GA.....Kudos to the staff

Does anyone know if Shaq is still on as a GA?

He is no longer a GA - Shaq is now part of the official coaching staff, as a Quality Control Coordinator, along with Scott Spurrier.....

I still remember that Ellis Johnson said he had the best football smarts of any player he had ever coached.

That says a lot.

I think he will make a very strong contribution.

Devonte certainly played his position well, too and he was doing very well with the Cowboys. I feel so sorry for him but think he could be another strong addition to the coaching staff.

Really feel that Holloman is going to be a great assistance to the coaching staff. He is a real leader and will let these players know what it takes to get to the next level.

I have no doubt the defense will play fast as we have a bunch of athletes on that side of the ball. It's the discipline part I'm worried about.

it is bittersweet to be able to get holloman back. sad about his injury but glad coach ward thinks enough of him to ask him to join the staff. winners always land on their feet somehow. :)

We are so classy it's awesome. I love how he's like, "We said the system, and we stay true to our word." Then on Holloman, "If he's released he will be out here next week." We take care of our own. Recruits will see that and want to play for us because of it.

I want us to be fast but the last I time I remember going full blast speed was against Auburn 2011 and they used it against us and basically picked us apart with screens and QB draws, we never could stop them when we needed to. Not saying this will happen, just saying we should be a little wary of going full, full speed.

They also went full full speed against Ole Miss in '09 though, still can't believe they didn't tire any that game. I'm only 22 but I've seen the highlights from 1980, '84 and '87 they were moving like the fire-ant and black death years.

I think he is talking about lining up fast between plays to their changing formations, and making quick adjustments to the plays as they launch. The execution is still about playing your assignment.

I think he is referring to the fact that TAMU is running a very fast no huddle type of offense, and he wants our guys to be ready for it. It hasn't been talked about much, but they run one of those systems that can be crazy up tempo when they want to.

As an A&M fan, I can tell you that this is a sound strategy. It worked last year. People a dissing the A&M defense, but what the fail to realize is that most of our opponents modified their strategies to adjust to A&M's speed of play. Bama and Auburn ran no huddle offenses and escaped with wins by a TD or less. Most of the other teams that A&M played often chose not to punt the ball. Several teams like Duke also chose to employ onside kicks.

A&M is going to be tough out this year. They offense took a HUGE step back last year. Clarence McKinney and Manziel were not in-sync. McKinney didn't want to call plays from the line of scrimmage and Manziel honestly never understood the scheme. They ended up running between 10-15 plays less per game last year than in Manziel's Heisman year. Jake Spavital is moving back to the sideline to call plays and increase the pace of play. Kenny Hill has been running this offense since his freshman year in High School. Both Kenny Hill and Kyle Allen were selected by the staff, because of the offenses they came from. People are saying that the "pace of play" is much faster this year than last.

Our coaching staff has laid down the blue print time and time again on how to "slow down" the HUNH. And that is to take as much time as possible while we have the ball. As long as we can move the ball effectively, That not only keeps the fast-paced opposition as well as our defense off the field. But it demorilizes their defense in the process. If our running game gets settled in, along with some well timed PA passes. I expect y'all to have a very long night. A 6 play 3 min drive does nothing for your defense if they just got off the field from a LONG 10-15 play drive that ate over 6 minutes off the clock.Call me crazy but I don't think your defense is suited to line up and play 60 minutes of grind-it-out, smash mouth football. I'm happy that whammy wants to have us playing fast, which is what we will need when our D is on the field. Because of course, we will essentially HAVE to stop you sometime. But I believe this game is going to come down to our O vs your D.

The reason why those teams barely escaped y'all's game with a win is because they simply worried too much about "keeping up with the pace" of your O. The way I see it, when playing a HUNH offense, you cannot let them dictate the game. WE have to set the pace.

Now don't be surprised to see us (if we get the ball first) to come out and score fairly quickly. (Like I said if we can move the ball, which I think we can). But if A&M strikes fairly quickly. I can almost guarentee you that we will end the game almost doubling your TOP.

He's had good things to say about Taylor Stallworth all offseason. He's gonna be a big time player for us in the future.
