Tuesday, December 05, 2017 – Jimbo Mania and Other News from Bryan College Station (BCS), Texas

Jimbo Mania continues to sweep Aggieland and the Brazos Valley. I do like his timeline for producing a national title. “Yesterday,” was Fisher’s answer when asked what was a reasonable time to turn a good program into an elite one.

In addition to officially hiring Jimbo Fisher as head football coach, other news from the Texas A&M Board of Regents meeting included hiring Ruth J. Simmons as president of Prairie View A&M University, Kelly M. Quintanilla as interim President of Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Carol A. Fierke as new provost and executive vice president – aka Chief Academic Officer – at Texas A&M University.

There is one Black woman, one Hispanic woman and one White woman and a man. One is making $75 million over the next 10 years.

In other news from the Brazos Valley, a 21 year old College Station woman was arrested driving drunk near the 11th Hole at Briarcrest Golf Course just before 10:30 p.m. on Saturday. MY golf course!

The woman told police she was “new to driving” and accidently turned onto the golf course, where she eventually went into a dry creek bed.

First of all, College Station is six miles away from Briarcrest Drive. Second, you do not accidently go to the Briarcrest Country Club. The Phillips Event Center, where the golf course and CC are located, sits off of Briarcrest Drive about half a mile down a road with nothing else back there.

Girl, in order for you to drive into the dry creek bed and to Hole 11, you had to drive across the driving range. Did you wonder why there were 50 yard, 100 yard and 150 yard markers? I guess you thought those flags on the sticks at various locations and the red barrels were construction.

The 11th Hole at Briarcrest is the only elevated hole on the course. Before you were in the dry creek bed behind the green did you not wonder why the ground suddenly elevated about 45 degrees?

It sounds as though you were new to drinking as well as new to driving. First, one does not drive drunk. It is against the law, dangerous and stupid. Two, one does not toss the empty beer bottles/cans in the back seat of the car.

The young woman spent the remainder of the evening in the Brazos County Jail. I certainly hope there are no golfers on the jury when she comes to trial.
