Your quote is that he "WAS" a good possession receiver, not that his abilities translate to possession receiver in college. Possession receivers generally get first downs, not touchdowns. They generally average less than 12 yards per catch, not more than 20.
If your quote, "He was a pretty good possession receiver" is referring to his college potential, then I think that everybody would be glad to have a pretty good possession receiver on their college team.
He stated last five years and football was 1998 and it was definitely an upset. Many Aggies skew things to make themselves feel better. It is an Aggie pride thing I believe. Being in the Big 12 has elevated many of the sports for ATM just not football. Not competing within their own region moving forward will reverse that trend. The best part is UT telling ATM they would never play them again if they left and after leaving ATM is acting like UT is the one that is afraid. UT is just following through on a promise which is provides irony.
