Sumlin fired from aTm

Plain and simple, the administration thought they should be on the next level (top 10-15 every year, compete for the CFP every 3-4) and Sumlin showed year after year that no matter the resources provided, level of recruiting classes, or even strong starts (5-0 three times), he couldn't get them there.

How many more opportunities do you think A&M should have given him? How many more QBs do you think he should have run through, ran off, or coaches blamed and fired for his inability to pull it all together?

Sumlin did not win enough but I am not sure how much you can win going against Alabama, LSU and Auburn.  Will they be satisfied being 4th in their division most years?  Cause assuming LSU or Auburn have down years Arkansas, Ole Miss and Mississippi State make noise from time to time.  No matter how good a recuriter you are the raw talent gap is going to be minimal during most of you Conference schedule.  They might be financially better off in the SEC but few programs are as financially well off as UT and the have struggled for going on 6 years now.  What would be epically funny to me would be Sumlin ending up at UT in few years and making a playoff run.
