Early commitments have been valuable fixture of Nick Saban era at Alabama

At nine commitments for the class of 2014, Alabama is right where it usually is at this point of the recruiting season.

Nothing golden about Kelly playing hard ball with waffling recruit

Four-star QB for A&M chosen fourth overall in MLB draft

Quarterback Kohl Stewart is currently a four-star member of Texas A&M’s 2013 signing class. Whether or not Stewart will officially become an Aggie should be made official shortly.

College football countdown | No. 96: Kansas

Kansas enters year two of its five-year plan under coach Charlie Weis.

Johnny Manziel to appear in country music video

Johnny Football's joyride through the offseason continues with a pickup truck and pretty girl.

Quotable:

A&M plays host to Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU and UTEP this season, one in which the Aggies are expected to contend for a national title in only Sumlin’s second season and behind Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

“It’s easy for people to (knock) our schedule,” Sumlin said. “But in our situation, we scrambled to get anybody to play us, because we had to come up with a schedule in less than 12 months. We’re basically in the same boat right now. Most schedules are done way in advance, and when you change leagues you’re at the mercy of two things: The league schedule, and who you can find within 24 months.

“Our schedule is going to change as time goes on. We had to scramble to find anybody to play us in particular these first two years – and it’s not just finding somebody to play, but their availability to play on specific dates. It gets really limited.”
