Prior to the its game against the Longhorns on November 24th, Mike Sherman got the oft-dreaded vote of confidence from Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin.

”As far as I’m concerned, yes. We don’t want to make any hasty moves, and we look forward to [Sherman] being our football coach in the future”

Following the Thanksgiving Day disaster that saw A&M, again, falter down the stretch, losing in the final – for now – Texas-Texas A&M game 27-25, a different tone now emanates from College Station.

"I've been talking to [athletic director] Bill Byrne for the last couple weeks," A&M President R. Bowen Loftin said Tuesday. "We're thinking hard about [the season and the future].”

The writing seems to be on the wall.

According to Football Rumor Mill:

“Multiple sources tell FRM TX A&M will fire Mike Sherman, barring any last minute change of heart”

Sherman, in four seasons at A&M has compiled a 25-25 overall record. This season was suppose to be different for the Aggies fans; who had high hopes following a 2010 season that saw A&M finish winners of 9 games and a Big 12 South Division Co-Championship. Texas A&M entered 2011 with 18 returning starters, ranked in the top 10 and a Big 12 Championship on the mind; maybe more.

Sherman – who replaced Dennis Franchione after the 2007 season – brought an NFL-pedigree with him to College Station. More success was expected.

Sherman has led the Aggies to a 15-18 overall record in the Big 12 in four seasons. More daunting, now, than this, is his 0-6 mark versus S.E.C opponents.

High hopes were dashed repeatedly this season by A&M. Five times during the season, Texas A&M lost a game after leading at halftime.

Next season, A&M will move on to the S.E.C.

It appears Mike Sherman, will be left behind.
