It’s been a rough 48 hours for Texas A&M fans, particularly those who followed the Aggies to Omaha last week.

The third-seeded Aggies’ baseball team dominated their way through the first half of the week, outscoring opponents 14-3 en route to securing their spot in the College World Series finals. In Game 1, the took down Tennessee 9-5 and appeared to be on the doorstep of doing the unthinkable.

A&M hasn’t won a national championship in football, baseball, or basketball since 1939, and the 85-year streak is one of the things Aggies are most tired of hearing about.

Unfortunately for them, things got even worse on Tuesday.


After choking away a CWS title by losing back-to-back games to top-ranked Tennessee, Texas A&M’s head coach, Jim Schlossnagle, reassured fans that he was right where he wanted to be in College Station.

“I think it’s pretty selfish of you to ask me that question, to be honest with you,” Schlossnagle told reporters after the loss. “But I left my family to be the coach at Texas A&M. I took the job at Texas A&M to never take another job again.”

Less than 24 hours later, Schlossnagle took another job—and not just any job.

He did the unforgivable by leaving Texas A&M to take over at Texas, and on top of that, he took his entire staff with him.

In the span of 24 hours, Schlossnagle went from being the most beloved coach in Texas A&M baseball history to the most-hated man in College Station, and that rollercoaster was on full display on social media.
