The powerful regent wants to make a change.
The pitchforks are out in College Station, Texas.
Kevin Sumlin, who entered the season firmly on the hot seat, watched his Texas A&M team blow a 34-point lead against UCLA in Pasadena on Sunday night.
Following the loss, much of the Aggies’ fan base could be heard calling for Sumlin’s firing.
Among them: powerful Texas A&M regent Tony Buzbee.
He posted the following message on Facebook.

Buzbee, a Houston-area attorney, told the Houston Chronicle he was the only regent to express “grave concerns” about Sumlin last year. The school should “expect more,” he says.
Sumlin, 53, is 44-22 at Texas A&M, but has lost four-plus games for four seasons in a row and hasn’t produced a winning season in the SEC since 2012.
His buyout is currently $11.25 million.
