Texas A&M has enormously deep pockets, a Heisman candidate (and likely winner), a ginormous fanbase, and has a flashy offense. They look a thousand times more exciting than we do at the moment.

Listen, South Carolina will always have a bit of a marketing handicap with recruits because we are not a big flashy name. A&M brings the heart of Texas into the SEC and that's becoming a lethal combination.

Clowney doesn't do much in terms of Williams...if Williams was a DE or Clowney a QB then I'd agree. Sumlin is telling Jaquay to come play in a pass-happy system, put up filthy numbers, and have a Heisman winner sling you the football.

Texas A&M has a LOT more going in it's favor than most any non-established powerhouse program. They have extremely rich and well-connected alumni (A&M's ties to oil companies are ridiculous), they're updating and renovating most all of their facilities, and their backyard happens to be the most talent-rich recruiting grounds in the nation. A&M is a sleeping giant and now that it's in the SEC they might have just woke up.

Taj Williams, maybe? I think there are better ones Next year though. Aldy Enoicy, Trevion Thompson, Shaq Davidson.

It's not a system that he's going to be able to stand out in.. Their best WR is a 6'5 freshman, they have a 6'6 fresh coming in next year, etc.. I doubt he or any of them will put up "flithy" numbers

Texas A&M ain't that flashy of a school or name. Less so than Clemsux even until this year at least. We were ESPN for 3 straight weeks, while destroying the bullpups.

I'd say we looked pretty damn exciting vs Clemson, slinging it for 300+ yards and devastating them on D, but I forgot you are forever the pessimist.

They also have a tradition that involves a jizz jar.

Exercise patience with our current group and then possibly get 1-3 WR's for the 2014 cycle.

I just don't know who amongst the current crop can be the downfield/Alshon threat. Kwinton Smith? I wish we'd consider moving Jerrell to WR.

Honestly yes

More money, better facilities, smack dab in the middle of the recruiting hot bed in the country yea they have more built in advantages then you. That isn't a slight to Carolina its just how it is doesn't mean you can't over come them.

Didnt realize our job was to "overcome" them. I'm not familiar w/ their facilities, but I'd argue we have advantages that off-set some of theirs as well.

A&M has a lot to be excited about, but the West ain't getting any easier. Be interesting to see how they do once Manziel's gone.

Also, A&M is pumping massive amounts of money into it's program and facilities right now, they have the likely Heisman winner at QB, and there's a lot of energy surrounding the program right now. A&M is a program on the rise, big time.
They have money manager and maker, Eric Hyman.

I wasn't happy when I heard A&M was Carolina's permanent West opponent. They were talking how much of a cakewalk the SEC schedule would be before the season even started. I don't they will respect USC that much.
