Morning, businessfolks. It’s a Tuesday in June, which means today you will read the absolute worst shit that the college football Internet has to offer. Such is life. You may as well start here, where we’re delving deep into #BusinessClass and putting together a very detailed S.W.O.T. analysis in order to {airquotes} keep up with the Joneses.

For those of you blessed enough to have never been introduced to a S.W.O.T. analysis, it’s basically a meaningless exercise devised by consultants in order to justify their existence. What it does, in theory, is generate a list of things that a business or company (or football program!) needs to do in order to improve so that they can largely ignore it and then blame someone else when they fail.

We passed around a spreadsheet yesterday, and here is the helpful analysis that we have compiled for Texas A&M Football:

  • not helping Texas (by not playing them)
  • highest belt buckle to body mass ratio in SEC
  • Texas, the state

  • Premium Bagman Network
  • Reveille, the perfect canine specimen
