Message boards are running wild and sports Web sites are leading stories with "sources say," but rumor is that Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione's days may be officially numbered.
I've yet to see whether or not the potential buyout (via ESPN, CBS, and Greg Tepper at The Dallas Morning News) is effective immediately or after the season.
Word from College Station is that the buyout has been in the works for two weeks, but the loss at Oklahoma may have forced Aggie AD Bill Byrne's hand. The buyout is speculated to be around the $2 million range.
But here's the question, will Fran be on the Faurot Field sidelines on Saturday? Will he be available long enough to only give Jorvorskie Lane 3 or 4 carries and try running McGee 27 times against Mizzou?
