Bye Bye Fran

Well it looks as if Texas A&M is finally giving up on the Fran Plan. Rumors and alot of smoke have reported that Fran has or is close to settling on a 2 million dollar buyout and the end of the season. This is 6 million less due to the fact he broke a few secondary NCAA infractions with secret emails he was selling to boosters.

This is an end of an era. An era that began with such optimism and ended in such bitter cynacism. Fran gave countless laughs and entertainment to the Big XII and the nation at large. Hell, Texas fans had to start a support group because a few of their ranks could not get enough "Aggy Misery".

Fran took a somewhat rising program (overall) and sunk it into obscurity.

I do take comfort in the fact that I was there when RC was still the coach.

Perhaps this will ignite my passion for Aggie football again. I lost after the Tech loss in 2006 and then Dr. Gates leaving to be the secretary of state.
