REPORTS: FRANCHIONE BOUGHT OUT, DONE. EXCELSIOR!

New, 136 comments
Buyout?

Sports talk types in Dallas and Birmingham reporting that Dennis Franchione's buyout has been hammered out, and that Franchione will leave Texas A&M following the 2007 season for the low, low price of 8 to 10 million dollars American, or roughly the combined yearly salaries of 200ish Americans making the average national wage.

Aggie fans, if this is true: EXCELSIOR! Your team might watch tape and prepare instead of attending endless motivational seminars. The number one name on Aggie AD Bill Byrne's list according to ESPN's Chuck Cooperstein: Tommy Tuberville, who won't leave but who will chip a few more gold bricks out of Bobby Lowder's tower of football Mammon thanks to the overtures.

Other fun, truthy candidates:

--Terry Bowden (though we want him to go to Arkansas in a marriage made in hell)
--Gary Patterson
--Will Muschamp
--Bo Pelini
--Jimbo Fisher
--Paul Johnson
--Jerry Moore. Hot hot hot!
