Racist letter sent to A&M coach Kevin Sumlin's home

Racist letter sent to A&M coach Kevin Sumlin's home

Kellen Mond, whom A&M turned to as the starter after Nick Starkel's ankle injury, was just 3-for-17 and 27 yards. Mond, a true freshman, will likely start against Nicholls State Saturday night in Texas A&M's home opener at Kyle Field.

Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey said on Twitter that he had "great admiration for Kevin Sumlin" and that he "fully" supported the statement by the Texas A&M administrators. "It's still a work in progress, but both of those guys are getting better".

A&M also has dubbed the Nicholls State game a "Relief Out", and is selling $10 T-shirts leading up to the game, with proceeds helping Harvey victims.

Texas A&M staked an early two-touchdown lead on the strength of veteran ball carriers. About 10,000 more will be on hand next week when the Aggies play host to Louisiana-Lafayette before opening SEC play against Arkansas on September 23 in Arlington's AT&T Stadium. Excluding sacks and the final kneel down to end the game, UCLA actually produced 4.42 yards per carry, a robust improvement over last season's meager 2.93 average.

"We had issues in the middle part of the game, which weren't all the quarterbacks fault", Sumlin added. We weren't able to run the football. I really don't have time to get involved in things that are said about the program or about me or whatever. He noted that it will be important for the team to get a good look at both players in Saturday's game and next week's against Louisiana-Lafayette before the Aggies open Southeastern Conference play against Arkansas on September 23.

"Jake came in and did a nice job".


The Aggies passing game remains iffy.

"By no means are we where we need to be, " Sumlin said afterward. "We stand with the Sumlins and will not accept this inexcusable act of hate".

Last week against UCLA, only three Aggies recorded receptions.

"People of 2017: please tell me how any part of this is ok".

"The best way to run the football is in the fourth quarter when you've worn them down, when you've run the ball for 25 carries going into the fourth quarter", Fisch said.

"We put everybody out there", Sumlin said.
