Colin Cowherd took aim at an SEC program today for underperforming.
The FS1 host was discussing Texas A&M this afternoon on his show The Herd, and he was less than complimentary about Kevin Sumlin's program.
In fact, he called the Aggies "the most underachieving program in the country" for some time.
“Texas A&M, to me, is the most underachieving program in the country and has been for years," Cowherd said. "Since 1995, they’ve had only two great first-round players. This is for the second-biggest school in the state of Texas. Texas is the No. 2 state in the country for providing NFL players and college football players to D-I programs. Texas A&M's only had one double-digit-winning season since 1998. It’s a flaky program. It is a transfer-in, transfer-out, players underachieve. They've given us a handful of really good players, but man have their been a bunch of hit-and-miss guys from A&M. ”
Cowherd would go on to criticize A&M's lack of top 25 finishes, saying A&M has had "one good team in 20 years."
"The culture there is off, and I can't figure it out," Cowherd said.

Going back to the draft comments, we're going to assume Cowherd is talking about Von Miller and Mike Evans as the two great first-rounders to come out of College Station since 1995. There have been a number of good players from lower rounds in that timeframe--the Bennett brothers immediately come to mind--but Cowherd's assertion on the Aggies' first-round history isn't that far off. In fact, the Aggies have only had 11 first-rounders in total since 1995.
As for his points on Texas A&M's record on the field, the Aggies have made bowl games in 16 of the last 20 seasons and 25 of the last 32, so there aren't many losing seasons to pick out. He's also off on the amount of top 25 postseason finishes. Texas A&M has had four of those, not two, in the last 17 years.
Still, those facts aside, does Cowherd have a point about the Aggies being underwhelming? What do you think?
