What was the biggest thing that happened to A&M?
Move to the SEC?
...who the heck seriously knows except God, and Sumlin. ~ Aggiemom6
Easy one, Bob Gates and the path he helped implement for the school.
Stephen McGee riding an imaginary horse trying to lasso an imaginary bull around Kyle Field.
Are you kidding? I could hear that arrow a mile away.
Followed by the death threat not on his truck?
Gates set the direction, Loftin was the next step that made the SEC happen. I think the timing of Sumlin and Johnny is a remarkable gift.
In terms of national exposure... Bonfire Tragedy unfortunately.
So now it was a death threat? I love the game of telephone. In 2025, I'll be hearing about the time All American QB Stephen McGee ran for his life as a car bomb exploded under his truck during the 2007 season.
Sounds good to me
I'd say A&M's move to the SEC got national headlines and the long-term impact is much greater of that.
I think a better question might be who was the last A&M figure to bring A&M this much positive exposure.

perhaps the original question should be framed with regard to A&M football, and not the whole university.
so many other wonderful things have happened in the long history of our university, and one could argue, far more important and providing lasting positive results to millions of people. I might start with Dr. Norman Borlaug.
this is easy. the ListEater
I'd say Jackie Sherrill. His hire as the first Million $ coach put A&M on the map as being serious about winning football.
Rip Torn. Done.
I've purged that time from my long term memory.
I spent the day with my fiancées non aggie parents from California who had never visited campus. I took them all around and showed them everything. We talked about if they knew much about A&M before they met me about 5 years ago. They said the only thing they knew about A&M was bonfire.
They loved campus and bought a bunch of Aggie gear in the bookstore. Our university truly makes a huge impression on first time visitors.
Yea she sucked
