A&M always thinks they can and should get better. They also have the money to spend. Sometimes that combination can work for you and sometimes it can work against you. I agree they'd be dumb to let him go but from the sounds of it he is getting the Tim Miles treatment regarding contract extensions.I really have a hard time seeing what problems A&M have with Childress. I mean he's had them in the CWS twice, most recently just two years ago. I seem to recall hearing just a few years ago that there was some rumblings of discontent at Arkansas about Dave Van Horn when they had gone through a bit of a down period. That certainly disappeared quickly with what they've done the last two years. I think A&M would be crazy to just let him leave now, but I'd certainly be more than happy to take him if that's how they feel.
I'm still a skeptic that he ends up at Nebraska as well but a few closer than I am seem more confident.
