The world of college football recruiting is full of lies and half-truths. One school can show a certain statistic, and another school will prove it wrong with another statistic. It's the art of selling, and in today's game, it is just as important to be a great salesman as it is to be a great coach. Fans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are well aware of this dilemma. For years we have heard about X recruit stating that academics are important in their decision to attend a school — and then they choose Big State U with a graduation rate of 67% and he majors in general studies. Notre Dame has used the slogan, "4 for 40" for about as long as I can remember. Four years for the next forty years of

But the past errors haven't kept Sumlin out of the running for top quarterbacks. Arizona, his new schools, is in the running for former A&M commit Grant Gunnell, one of the top 2019 quarterback prospects in the country. Sherrington: The situation sounds similar to the QB exodus at Texas Tech a few years ago, when Baker Mayfield, Michael Brewer and Davis Webb left. They complained that it seemed like Kliff Kingsbury stopped communicating with them. The difference in that situation was that Mayfield, Brewer and Webb were all good QBs who went on to star or at least play significant time at their next stops. And Coach Cool still ended up with a better QB in Patrick Mahomes. Unbelievable that one

ST. LOUIS -- The most shocking moment of the 2017 NCAA women's gymnastics championships happened on beam. Maggie Nichols, then the breakout freshman star at the University of Oklahoma, was a favorite to win the individual all-around title on the first day of competition. Known for her consistency, Nichols mounted the balance beam with confidence. Then nearly everyone in the arena gasped when she fell off on her front tuck somersault. Her only fall of the season may not have been what cost her the title, which went to Florida junior Alex McMurtry, but it certainly took her out of the running for it. Nichols finished in a disappointing 29th place. A perfect 10 on beam at the next day's team championships

Former Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen told CBS Sports that a lack of discipline and what he considers a frustrating "culture" that has carried over from the Johnny Manziel era contributed to his decision to transfer from Aggieland to Houston. Allen announced in December that he would transfer before A&M's bowl game, and was followed a week later by freshman quarterback Kyler Murray. Few concrete explanations for the departures had been given before Allen opened up. "I think the culture was a big part of it, and I think that stems from Johnny's era there - the way that they let Johnny and [others] act there," Allen told Dennis Dodd. "They [could] do that and still win games because they had

Follow on Twitter COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- A Texas A&M spring football game record crowd turned out to usher in the unofficial on-field start of the Jimbo Fisher era.
