So apparently Kirk Herbstreit called the freshman out for striking a Heisman pose after scoring his first career TD against Sam Houston State

Then deleted the tweet but not before it became a national story with lots of tweets of support and antagonistic tweets from Tiger fans

So Kevin Sumlin is actually paid a base salary that is more than every single one of these coaches

But he is not on the list

You know why? he is worth every red cent of that money and delivers a product on the field that proves it.

10 Most Overpaid College Football Coaches

We're not suggesting Butch Jones is a lousy coach. It's just that he hasn't proven anything at Tennessee yet to deserve this pay. Jones is no Nick Saban. He doesn't have a background of winning at the major college level. A coach shouldn't be paid this type of money to

Everytime they express this sentiment it validates that he is NOT overpaid (no matter what snarky comment Steve Spurrier makes)

The SEC West will have 4 teams in the top 9 in this week's AP Poll

And people wonder why people schedule breather games

The SEC as a whole will have 5 of the top 9 also (I for one will root for South Carolina to beat Georgia so it elevates the Aggies)

When the USA draw in the world cup was announced, international commentators called it the "Group of Death" (best team in Africa, the team with arguably the best player in the world, and Germany)

An american sportswriter called it the "SEC West" of Soccer

The USA survived that group to make the round of 16.  And the Aggies are thriving and elevating their game in the SEC West.

i would like to thank +USA TODAY for writing this article since it was incredibly motivating for the Aggie coaches and players in coming out and proven doubtful analysts that this year's team can surpass the team we had with Johnny Football

Texas A&M is the most overrated team in the Amway Coaches Poll

So on my way into the South Carolina game last Thursday I heard some Gamecock fans calling Johnny Manziel "Johnny Clipboard"

At the end of the 3rd quarter Texas A&M was up 45 - 28 and South Carolina had forced a punt

Carolina was driving and it looked like they were on the cusp of cutting the lead to 45 - 35 going into the 4th quarter which would have set a stage for a thrilling close ending

Freshman defensive back Armani Watts learned the lesson of two previous long TD passes by South Carolina

On 3rd and short Spurrier liked to air it out and hit for home run TD passes

The Aggies had been burned twice already in the game on that gambit

Too many times going to that well

On 3rd and 1 They went for the home run shot and this time the CB had safety help and the receiver was double covered

That Interception was a game changing play

The Aggies went on to score and go up 52 -  28

Also when the game was at 38  - 21 Spurrier tried an onside kick to desperately give his team a chance for back to back scores and deny the Aggie Offense possession

The Aggies recovered and drove the short field to make it 45 - 21

SC scored and that set the stage for the INT when it was 45 - 28

In the end SC had no answer for the Aggie O and the success put incredible pressure on the SC offense to perform and take risks they would usually want to stay away from
