Im excited about the upcoming season. Football has a funny way of making it more exciting lately. I had a chance to read the above articles. The SI guy made some good points about Turgeon being in an awkward situation. Getting a commitment from the 15 year old is huge for Turgeon and A&M. So its true, he can recruit, now lets see him make JJ into the next Charles Barkley and make Josh Carter into the next Reggie Miller. Im talking some serious INTENSITY!!!
