Texas A&M's Billy Kennedy after disappointing 2017 season: 'I feel secure where I'm at'

It is easy for recency bias to infiltrate the minds of sports fans. Take Billy Kennedy for an example, who is under fire from fans after an underachieving, 16-15 (8-10 SEC) season with the Aggies. A&M's 2016 SEC title— along with Kennedy's SEC Coach of the Year honors and Sweet Sixteen appearance — already seems like a distant memory to many. In retrospect, that is A&M's only tournament appearance in six years under Kennedy. His 2015 team failed to make the dance with a talented roster, and the Aggies wasted away Robert Williams on a capable team this season. The mishandling of...

Former prized QB recruit, A&M true freshman getting snaps with starters during spring practice

Texas A&M puts on worst recruiting visit, anonymous survey says

In a recent anonymous survey by 247Sports, Texas A&M polled as the worst for hosting recruiting visits. The survey, which polled 16 Dallas-recruits with Power Five offers, asked several different questions. The Aggies weren't particularly a topic of conversation, but they were brought up after receiving low polling numbers. "Texas A&M was the worst," one athlete said. "They didn't even know who I was."Two separate polls unveiled these athletes distaste for A&M's events.
