Yet... CJS will be remembered for 'castrating' a bull at Mississippi State.
(He probably got the attention of some of the linemen that day)
There are a lot of people in the media, on messageboards and on talk radio claiming that Texas A&M would be a sitting duck if it entered the big, bad Southeastern Conference. Jackie Sherrill disagrees. And Sherrill should know, he coached at A&M and in the SEC:
“For people to say that A&M cannot compete in the SEC, they don’t know what they’re talking about. I’ve been there. Yes, they can.”
Sherrill also said that A&M is a good fit with the SEC because its campus has a true “university setting” and it isn’t located in a metropolitan city.
Sherrill coached the Aggies from 1982 through 1988. He coached at Mississippi State from 1991 through 2003. He’s just been elected into MSU’s sports hall of fame.
