For the better part of the last few years, the Longhorns have sort of become a laughing stock in the college football world. Once a proud tradition is now being mocked by many fans across the nation. Even last week it seemed to have hit a new low when Sterlin Gilbert turned down the Longhorns’ first offer. Even SMU was looking prettier at that point.
Thanks for making Texas the laughing stock of college football. SMU really appreciates it. @gregfenves

Since that tweet, Texas has hired Gilbert and a little stability has been restored. The Longhorns heated rival over in College Station? Not so much.
Just last week, former 5-star QB Kyle Allen announced that he was transferring out of A&M. His top place he wants to go? Reportedly Oklahoma to be the next Baker Mayfield. But all is good in Aggieland right? They still have the number one quarterback from the 2015 class in 5-star Kyler Murray right? No need to panic.

Oh. Well maybe now it’s time to start panicking. The possible transfer has set off a chain reaction of events. 4-star WR Quartney Davis was committed to the Aggies. That was before this all went down. Davis took to Twitter and decommitted.

5 minutes before he tweeted this out, he quote tweeted something about Kyler with the caption “Wow. SMDH.” While the Murray decision isn’t final, it’s looking more and more like Jake Hubenak will be the starting QB for the foreseeable future.
Let’s take a look at all QBs who have signed with Sumlin:
1) Matt Davis: transferred to SMU
2) Kenny Hill: transferred to TCU
3) Kohl Stewart: Drafted to MLB
4) Kyle Allen: Transferring
5) Kyler Murray: Possibly transferring
And just when you think it can’t get worse:
