  15. A&M, Kennedy get early recruiting boost

    Eamonn Brennan

    The traditional read on the Texas A&M job is that it requires a coach who can coach up his talent. It's hard to recruit to a football school with minimal basketball tradition; it's even harder when you're competing with Kansas and (more locally) ...
