Some serious creds here and quite a change from the past...Looking forward to see the Lions come back to power in the North as well as the LSC. Great Job Selection Committee...Next up...How about an Athletic Referendum that brings in more athletic teams and upgrades to the existing facilities. Having a Top Tier Athletic Program generates considerable pride in the school and considerable funding for Academics as well.

Whatever, the AD took too long to hire the HC and recruiting was a joke.

TAMC will struggle to win half of their games again.

Check back this time next year.

Recruiting was a joke? LOL Someone sounds bitter. They ended up with 17 high school prospects, many of which were on All State teams, and there are still more coming.

Not bitter, just not drinking the Kommerce Kool-Aid. Most of the 17 are leftovers that were passed over by everyone else.

Maybe they'll do better next year, when they start at the same time as everyone else.

Really? Considering the other 10 players haven't been announced yet, I'm glad you already know they are leftovers.

Nice try.

This does not look good for ol' ET. I'll set the over/under for wins at 3. I hate to say it but this may get worse before it gets better. And yes, recruiting was a joke. Who recruited? As for next year, I dont see how this cast of characters walks in to Texas high schools with any credibiiity. Sad.

I'll take the over under bet and bet on the OVER! All I will need to get to is 4, but a good possibility it will get to 6 or better...Let's wait and see.
