A&M’s Sumlin Has A Message For Fans: The Sky Isn’t Falling

gfx - they said itOn Saturday, Texas A&M was licked 34-10 by LSU.  It was the Aggies’ third loss of the season.  (Gasp!)

Yesterday, head coach Kevin Sumlin tried to tap the brakes on fan grumbling and fretting:

 

“I drive through a gas station and it’s like Henny Penny around here: The sky’s falling.  Heck, we lost to LSU on the road as an underdog, the first time we’ve lost by double-digits.  We’re playing in a real season and real opponents and real games.  Are we where we want to be right now?  No.  Does that mean that the sky is falling?  It doesn’t mean that either…

We’re going on the road again (this week) as a road dog (to Missouri) and the good news is people expect us to win.  That’s a completely different attitude than when I first got here.”

 

Sumlin has only been in College Station for two years, which shows how quickly he (and quarterback Johnny Manziel) have turned things around.  But do the coach’s comments tell us something else?  Perhaps that he’s a little frustrated by fan angst over what could still be a 10-win season?

The fact that Southern Cal AD Pat Haden reportedly holds Sumlin in high regard shines a bit different light on the remarks.  If Aggie fans want to hang onto their coach, they might want to chill with the panic.  A panic which Sumlin did nothing to quell on Tuesday.

Asked if rumors of other jobs is a distraction for his team, Sumlin said:

 

“It’s not a distraction for us.  Our guys deal with it.  More than anything else, for our team it’s not a distraction… We spend so much time on week-to-week, day-to-day (things), the opponent, everything else.  What I care about is our current team and our recruiting.  And from our conversations with our players, coaches and recruits — they understand what we’re doing… I don’t see it as a distraction.”

 

Sumlin could easily nix the job talk but he’s chosen not to do so.  Which makes his Henny Penny comments seem a bit more important.
