Good morning, all. Thought I’d ping you this morning w/r/t this week’s flurry of encouraging fiduciary updates. Specifically:
TEXAS A&M = SEC CHAMPS*
*in revenue: but hey, the actual football success is just a matter of time, isn’t it? hello?
All you moneyheads out there with Wall Street foam fingers, this is your crowning moment. Rejoice in the epic victory that creatively-manipulated financial reporting has generated on behalf of the school you hold so dear, and be sure to gloat about it online accordingly.
A RESTORATION OF “ORDER”
Something something coaching changes something new sheriff in town something recruiting dominance, et. al. Repeat every few months. Jimbo Fisher is doing good recruiting and Tom Herman’s honeymoon is over, while Lincoln Riley is doing okay but we don’t really care or somesuch. See, the “order” is what we deem it to be, not historical reality. It pains me to even scour this superficially in order to provide the most peripheral of summaries, but just trying to stick to the theme. And if you don’t think recruiting hinges on the financial world, honey, I’ve got a chain chicken finger restaurant on University to sell you.
THE $ SEVENTY FIVE MM MILLION DOLLAR MANS
Finally, something juicy. Former Gator OL and BBQ aficionado Andy Staples takes a deeeep dive and lays out the entire behind-the-scenes drama that led to Texas A&M Head Coach Jimbo Fisher. This is a fun read: it showcases the determination of the University to push the football program to that next level, but it doesn’t shy away at showcasing the cartoonish antics of John Sharp & co. Give it a click, it won’t bite ya.
That’s all we’ve got for this fine Friday. Have a profitable weekend.
