Today or tomorrow?
Both actually, but this is for today.
A few predictions, first, everyone is going to love him. He's definitely a "give credit to teammates" type person and I expect him to do a ton of deflecting today. I also wouldn't be surprised if he goes out of his way to somehow mention Te'o and how talented he is.
I also expect a lot of thanking Jesus.
Can we get a link set up on this thread.
Any word on which language he will be using of the 23 that he is fluent in?
Link just posted up top.
Aubrey, how long you think this will last, 30 minutes? I have no knowledge of such things. Thx.
"Failure is my greatest fear. Yours is probably heights or spiders or some silly shit."
I think it's scheduled for 30, but who knows for sure.
Is it true that Chuck Norris will be introducing him?
Any chance of some industrious students hacking the line and starting a "Heisman" chant a la the Mizzou "SEC" situation? Because that would be awesome.
That would be awesome, going to be hard to top that one in Teleconference history.
Sumlin speaking first, thanking everyone for respecting the policy.
Lights out predictions there Aubrey. Can you tell me if December 21, 2012 is going to happen?

"His numbers speak for themselves against anybody not only this year, but anybody who's played the game."
It's not streaming yet on 12thManTV, but it's on KBTX
Had no idea he was fluent in Taiwanese. Fascinating.
"I like Bears and if you're going to be a bear, UMMMMM, BE A Grizzley"
Thinks "Johnny Football" is a funny name. Also, he doesn't know the current status of the cat from Wellborn Road.
"I definitely held myself to a high standard, I wanted to come out and have a good year if I was named the starter but there was no way to know I'd have this much success, speaks volumes about this team."
Said he saw Houston play but they do a lot more than just dropping back and passing.
Not sure if anybody can do what Keenum did, those are numbers you sit back and laugh at because they're so ludicrous but it's something that going into bowl practice that they're going to try to keep working on. Running and passing, working on everything.
Doesn't think success builds pressure, extremely blessed and fortunate to come to A&M and play with these guys and they all just love playing football. It's a game and they're lucky to be able to play, it's really nothing more than that.
Have to wonder about his decision to refer to Suzanne Halliburton as "sugar tits".
Sumlin just asked Aubrey to mute the heavy breathing.
Transition from Tivy was easy because they ran similar offenses, they also pushed them to a level that you don't see at other high schools.
