Because he did not win the big 12 championship or 1 bowl game during his 5 year tenure.
The website thing was merely ammunition for the AD to fire him. If A&M had been more competitive, winning a Big 12 or National title in the last 5 years..the website thing would have been no big deal.
Oh, I feel so sorry for Dennis...he no longer has to show up to work, yet he is still being paid millions.... I chose the wrong profession..
Is It Hard To Get Into A&M (Texas)????From California??
Wow. You are very well rounded. I am also a current A&M student. I am pretty sure you will get in. Like previously stated. You will bring diversity being from out of state. Your AP score are very good! And yes, they do look at those. And with your internship and volunteer work... wow. It really does show you are dedicted to your education. What any college is looking for is "how is this person going to give back to our campus? How will she reflect upon us?" Don't worry terribly about your GPA. They like well rounded students, as is seems you are, and will factor your gpa into that. I really hope you get in. Aggieland is the best place on earth!!
And as far as difficulty?? I don't know cuz i'm not you. But your main thing will prolly be time management. There are a lot of distractions out there no matter what college you go to. And its easy to sit at home and say "no i wont do that. I'll study." And its another thing to have temptation shining in your face. I'm talking about wasting time.
But good luck to ya friend! A&M is something that can only be experienced :)
Is the Pac-10 ready for some good ole' Texas Football?
You forgot Baylor
And to answer your question Arizona and Arizona St (the two teams that would be in a division with the old Big 12 teams) sure better because Texas/Oklahoma are alot tougher than UCLA.
Edit: From what I've heard the 6th spot is between Baylor and Colorado
Is it possible to walk-on to University of Texas football team?
Yes Tx like all other schools has a "walk on" program. So it is possible. The reality is that a walk on is usually no more than a "practice dummy" meaning you attend the practices, put in the hard work, but rarely if ever get real playing time. Mack Brown is known however for putting in several strings of backups in blowout games near the end of the game.
Im not trying to discourage you, just being honest. If you are really good, and bust your butt enough to get recognized by the coaches, there is always the chance you could get put on the roster, and maybe even offered a scholarship. Slim chance but possible.
