Tell us how you really feel.

Kevin Sumlin's seat couldn't be hotter at Texas A&M and Board of Regents member Tony Buzbee made that abundantly clear after the Aggies' epic collapse Sunday night.

Buzbee posted a following the loss to UCLA, saying Sumlin must be replaced.

I'm sure I may be criticized for this post but I honestly don't care. I've been on the Board of Regents for the A&M System for almost seven years. During that time, I've not once commented on Kevin Sumlin and his performance during his tenure at our school. I never said a word when he and his agent manipulated a much bigger and longer contract. I said nothing about his arrogance and his mishandling of multiple player controversies. I said nothing when we had multiple awesome recruiting classes, only to see key players leave our school or underperform. But tonight I am very disappointed and I have to say this. Kevin Sumlin was out-coached tonight, which isn't new. He recruits well, but can't coach the big games, or the close games. Our players were better tonight. Our players were more talented tonight. But our coaches were dominated on national TV, yet again. I'm only one vote on the Board of Regents but when the time comes my vote will be that Kevin Sumlin needs to GO. In my view he should go now. We owe it to our school and our players. We can do better. Share this as you see fit.

Sumlin came into the season on the hot seat already, as athletic director Scott Woodward said back in May that the head coach "has to win this year." Blowing a 34-point lead in the season opener certainly doesn't fall into that category.
