Aggie AD to discuss Franchione's fanzine

Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione had a VIP Connection newsletter that he emailed to about a dozen supporters willing to pay $1,200 a year. In it he offered insights on current players ('Earvin Taylor is too slow to play receiver. Who knew putting on 40 pounds would slow him down?') and recruiting ('Sam McGuffie is a wigger. The lure of the Fuck Lion is strong.')

While being a source of great comedy, it might also be against NCAA rules or something. Aggie AD Bill Byrne is holding a press conference today to answer questions about it.

Franchione has ceased sending out the newsletter and now provides information in his weekly Tiger Beat column only.
