Texas A&M loses its starting quarterback possibly for rest of the season

Texas A&M loses its starting quarterback possibly for rest of the season

Kevin Sumlin and company also lost quarterback Nick Starkel and defensive back Donovan Wilson to injury. The Aggies' offense, meanwhile, was mostly unstoppable on its way to five rushing touchdowns. He went 9-4 the next season and has posted 8-5 records in each of the past three seasons.

After suffering a loss to UCLA in a game they once led 44-10, the Aggies learned that Starkel, who left the game early in the second half with a leg injury, could end up missing the remainder of the 2017 season.

"The chips just fell in our favor tonight".

Sumlin says he is sure a "lot of things" are being said about the program. "We didn't get it done as coaches", Sumlin said regarding the game.

But when Tony Buzbee, a member of the Texas A&M Board of Regents, blasted Kevin Sumlin on Facebook and called for his dismissal, he knew he would garner some criticism. "I've been on the Board of Regents for the A&M System for nearly seven years". I'm only one vote on the Board of Regents but when the time comes my vote will be that Kevin Sumlin needs to GO. I never said a word when he and his agent manipulated a much bigger and longer contract. Among other things, he highlighted what he sees as Sumlin's "arrogance and his mishandling of multiple player controversies".

"Our players were better tonight", Buzbee wrote Sunday night after the stunning loss.

There is no sidestepping it - this was one of the worst collapses in the history of team sports, and it came at the worst possible time for Sumlin, who will still be highly paid for a couple of years if he's fired, but is probably done being on short lists for National Football League head coaching jobs.

Texas A&M struggles to close teams out late in games, especially November on. "Our players were more talented tonight".
