Ross Bjork has been a busy man, and he still found the time to join TexAgs Radio on Friday:

The Jim Schlossnagle era at Texas A&M has begun as the Aggies introduced their new baseball coach on Thursday:
In what Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork called a "no-brainer," new head baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle has all the makings of a "home run" hire. Schlossnagle made it clear that he's up for the challenge and is looking to make strides for in Aggieland as soon as possible.
With tomorrow being Gabe Bock's final show as the host of TexAgs Radio, Olin Buchanan took the time to bid a fond farewell to his GO Hour partner:
After eight years on the air together, the GO Hour's original duo will be splitting up as Gabe Bock steps away from TexAgs Radio. A pairing that seemingly went together like fire & ice (or ire & nice), Olin Buchanan shared his thoughts on his co-host's departure.

On Tuesday night, it was reported that Texas A&M will hire Jim Schlossnagle to be the next head baseball coach in program history. In 19 years as a head coach, Schlossnagle has compiled an 811-393 record and made five trips to the College World Series.

As expected the Texas A&M women were a force in the early going of the NCAA West Regional. Tyra Gittens led three long jumpers who qualified for Nationals, and Athing Mu was one of several runners advancing to Saturday's qualifying rounds of the NCAA West Regional.
For some reason, DeMarvin Leal did not receive All-SEC honors last year, but early 2022 mock drafts will tell you that Leal is among the league's best:
As a sophomore in 2020, DeMarvin Leal posted 37 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception, yet he was still not an All-SEC selection. Early 2022 mock drafts seem to suggest the league's voters got that wrong.
Just announced: Kickoff times and TV networks for Texas A&M Football's first three games 👀👍

During the Childress era, the Aggies won 622 games, five conferences titles and made two trips to Omaha:
It was announced on Sunday that Texas A&M would not renew Rob Childress' contract as the athletic department will instead begin the search for a new head baseball coach. In 16 years at A&M, Childress won 622 games to rank third on the program's all-time list.
With Auburn's win and A&M's 12-6 loss to LSU, the Aggies are officially eliminated from contention for the SEC Tournament in Hoover:
Texas A&M fought valiantly on Friday night but eventually fell to LSU after an offensive burst from the Tigers in the 13th inning. With this loss and an Auburn win, the Aggies are officially eliminated from contention for the SEC Tournament in Hoover.
A Will Frizzell homer in the eighth inning pushed the Aggies to a 2-1 victory over LSU in the opening game of the weekend series:
Texas A&M opened its final series of the regular season with a nail-biter against LSU, winning 2-1 due to more Will Frizzell heroics. Frizzell's 19th home run of the season in the eighth inning was enough to give the Ags a much-needed home victory over the Tigers.
Hype aside, the evidence suggests Steve Sarkisian's arrival in Austin is unlikely to slow down Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies on the recruiting trail:
This offseason, Texas hired the architect of Alabama's high-powered, national championship offense, but what does that mean for Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M on the recruiting front? Turns out, not much change should be expected as Steve Sarkisian takes over in Austin.
Distance runner Jon Bishop joined TexAgs Radio to reflect on what it means to win the H. Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year award:
After running in the SEC Outdoor Championships this weekend, Pat Henry joined TexAgs Radio to discuss his team's showing and preparation for the NCAA Prelims. Distance runner and Scholar-Athlete of the Year Jon Bishop also joined for the Athlete Spotlight.
Jimbo Fisher has already narrowed the talent gap between Texas A&M and Alabama significantly, but October will tell how close the Aggies are to meeting "The standard":
Jimbo Fisher's comments about Nick Saban have at least one talking head predicting a massacre when the Crimson Tide visit Kyle Field on Oct. 9. However, with the surplus of talent on Texas A&M's roster in 2021, it's more likely to be a hard-fought, close contest.

TexAgs.com was launched in 1998 by Peter Kuo (Class of ‘92). He was one of many Aggies who congregated online at the website GoBig12.com (R.I.P.), but when the site was rumored to be taken over by the Austin American-Statesman, Kuo saw a need to provide an alternative home for Aggies. He didn’t have any web programming experience, so he bought a copy of HTML for Dummies and got to work. After getting a functional site up and running, all he needed was a name. He found the perfect one displayed on his license plate: “Tex Ags.”
With the help of community donations and t-shirt sales, Kuo was able to launch the site and keep it running until signing on with an advertising partner. Once TexAgs began turning a profit, he paid back all the donations he had received, many for twice the amount of the original gift.
As TexAgs grew, Kuo turned down buyout offers from sites like Rivals.com and Fox Sports; however, in 1999, fellow Aggie graduate Brandon Jones (’95) and partners bought a large share of the site and took over as President & CEO, a position he still holds today.
In 2002, Jones and his business partner Josh Oelze (‘99) partnered with recruiting insider Billy Liucci (’98) and former A&M tight end Hunter Goodwin (’96) to launch a subscription service called TexAgs Premium.
Over the next several years, the TexAgs community grew in popularity and our forums became the online destination for Aggies wanting to discuss anything and everything — from football and recruiting to academics, hunting, politics, real estate and Aggieland itself, just to name a few. It was during this period that a couple TexAgs users themselves became infamous. In January 2006, aggiegrant06 famously broke the news that OU quarterback Rhett Bomar was receiving payments from a car dealership in Norman. Later that same year, former A&M president Robert Gates, who was a frequent visitor and poster on our forums, broke cover as ranger65 before heading off to become Secretary of Defense.
Traffic and subscriptions both steadily increased from 2002-2010, but really took off when Texas A&M began eyeing a move to the SEC in 2011 and became the center of the college sports universe. The two-year ordeal became the perfect storm of controversy and Aggie fandom, and it propelled TexAgs to what it has become today — a community of over 200,000 users, 12,000 subscribers, and a company employing more than 35 staff members.
TexAgs Radio — a three-hour show hosted daily by Gabe Bock ('03) on 1150 AM — was launched in 2011, and two years later, TexAgs moved into a new office located in the shadow of Kyle Field, complete with a new radio studio and space to host game day tailgates (come join us for one in the Fall!)
In 2014, Jones put together a video production group and produced the feature film SEC Ready, a documentary detailing A&M’s dramatic journey into the SEC. The award-winning group is now led by both Jones and Andrew Kilzer (’07) and operates under the name Texas FilmWorks.
In 2016, Jones and Oelze began licensing the TexAgs software platform under the name F5 Sports. As of 2019, F5 has launched 14 sites in other collegiate markets across the country — Oregon, Notre Dame, Baylor, Nebraska, USC, Georgia, and Florida to name a few.
While the company continues to grow and expand, the heart and soul of TexAgs remains our community. There are no more passionate, loyal, and rabid fans in the entire country than those on TexAgs.com. We’re thankful that we get to host such a vibrant community of Aggies, sincerely appreciate everyone who has been a part of it over the years, and — if you haven’t already — hope you’ll join us as well!
