Texas A&M tight ends coach Tim Brewster has made several attempts to discredit both Texas football and the Big 12 via social media.
Brewster has talked up the Aggies and the SEC since following head coach Jimbo Fisher from Florida State to College Station in December, which included tweeting that it was “straight crazy” to “say that the Big 12 is even on the same planet” as the SEC on Monday, noting that the “elite players in Texas totally understand.”
Apparently, Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger, a former four-star prospect from the state of Texas, seemed to disagree.
Of course, Ehlinger is implying that Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa was solely carrying the SEC’s quarterback play, despite having only taken over midway through the Tide’s College Football Playoff National Championship victory over Georgia.
Missouri’s Drew Lock, who led the SEC with 3,964 passing yards, ranked 10th among FBS quarterbacks, trailing Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph (4,904) and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield (4,627), who led the NCAA, respectively.
Texas also ranked third nationally in the 247Sports Team Composite for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, which included signing 11 of the top 15 prospects from the Lonestar State. A&M only managed to sign three, which completely discredits Brewster’s argument.
It’s also worth noting that Brewster has a history of sharing his conference pride, having claimed the ACC was the “best football conference in [the] Nation” while still employed by FSU last July.
Additionally, Brewster’s own son, Nolan Brewster, played at Texas under former head coach Mack Brown. He also worked as a tight ends coach for the Longhorns from 1998-2001.
But hey, whatever helps on the recruiting trail is fair game.
