COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin isn’t the type to dwell on comparisons, particularly as the calendar pages turn each year in college football. Sure, there are holdovers that were around and played the year before, but all in all, he looks at each of his teams as a new one. “From my standpoint it’s always a new team; it’s always a new personality,” Sumlin said. “As coaches what you’re trying to do is figure out where you are, who can do what and put them in the best position to try to win games.

New expectations, same approach for A&M
Texas didn’t have to worry about players decommitting in recent years. That’s changed, and especially so this year, when five different players committed to Texas before reneging and eventually signing with other schools like Texas A&M, Alabama and Notre Dame. Texas coach Mack Brown stopped short of saying he’s going to pull scholarships for players who continue to look around after committing to Texas, but if recruits do so, Texas may do the same.
Texas not tolerating wandering eyes
We checked on the SEC’s 3,000-yard passers from 2012 on Thursday, so we’re taking a look at the running backs who hit the coveted 1,000-yard mark last fall. Last summer, we looked at 10 running backs we thought could eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark. The SEC had four players reach 1,000 yards on the ground in 2011, and had nine, including Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, in 2012. I thought it was supposed to be the Year of the Quarterback?
TCU built its program under Gary Patterson on home-grown talent. Assuming this year’s verbally-committed class all signs with the Frogs next month, TCU has signed just 17 players from outside the state of Texas since 2009. The Frogs, meanwhile, have made a big dent in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Over that same time period, 30 of TCU’s 108 signees hailed from the metroplex. That number looks to be growing, too. TCU has 10 of its 19 commits in this year’s class coming to Fort Worth from the metroplex, and have had 23 in the past three years alone, thanks to two BCS bowl bids — including a win over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl — and a ticket to join the Big 12, where TCU had longed to be since being exiled to college football’s minor leagues after the breakup of the Southwest Conference.
