Jorvorskie LaneSome interesting and amusing stories coming from the Aggie message boards after their loss to Oklahoma this weekend. Sounds like Jorvorskie Lane is throwing his weight around (and it sure is a lot of weight) and isn’t happy with the job coach Dennis Franchione is doing. And it sounds like some of the team and most of the fan base agrees with him.

Here’s one of many posts that were quickly deleted by the fascist TexAgs moderators:


I do not know everything that has been discussed on the subject but this alleged situation could not be worse for this team.

For those who have not heard the story, after the game last night, Jorvorskie allegedly threw objects and berated Franchione for not giving him the ball on 3rd and goal from the 2.5 late in the game with the team trailing by 7. Following Lane’s emotional outburst, apparently, another team leader told Franchione that he had lost the respect of Jorvorskie and thus the entire team. Additionally, Lane now faces an impending suspension from Franchione.

Pretty good stuff. If there’s any truth to this than Lane has to be suspended for the next game. Franchione is close to losing that team if they drop the next two games against Nebraska and at Texas, which is very possible. Fran’s call late in the game not to give Lane the ball is pretty baffling, I love to make fun of the guy but he’s an incredible short yardage runner once he gets his weight moving forward. Maybe run the option or give the ball to Michael Goodson to the outside, but a Stephen McGee pass?? Bad call.

I think the unforgivable mistake though was to kick a field goal with only two and a half minutes to go in the game. The Sooners had run all over them during the game, what gave Fran the idea they could stop OU from getting the single first down that would end the game? He’s made a ton of strange coaching decisions this year and this one finally bit him in the ass.

Hopefully this gets much worse and more public, because it should be very entertaining to watch.

    the jorvorskie outburst is overblown MB stuff..

    but you’re right, the leadership of this team took a huge hit with the way they lost that game (fran’s decision making and McGee’s allergic reaction to the pass play), and if they lose again this Saturday, especially in a similar fashion, everything gained this season will be lost.

    I agree with most of what you’ve said, except the part about blow-U running over A&M the entire game. They were stuffed almost the entire 2nd half. If that last decent run hadn’t happened, Fran probably would have won the game. But would that have validated Fran’s decision making? Not by a long shot.
