Texas A&M site mocked for infamous ‘QBU’ tweet after Martell news
Once upon a time, not long, long ago, Texas A&M looked like an up-and-coming program with a steady stable of quarterbacks.
Ryan Tannehill had been drafted in the first round and was starting for the Miami Dolphins; Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy and was a first-round pick; and the Aggies had a trio of five-star QBs in the pipeline between Kyle Allen, Kyler Murray and Tate Martell.
In the last half-year, both Allen and Murray left the program, and on Wednesday, Martell, a 2017 recruit, announced he was decommitting from the Aggies.
After talking with my family about
what is best for my future, I have
decided to reopen my recruiting

With 3/5 of the quarterbacks featured in a tweet sent by A&M fan site in August no longer with the program, and one a criminal, the Aggies have been embarrassed. Check out some of these tweets:

The world seems to be crumbling for A&M. Maybe next time wait until their playing careers at your school are completed before you send out such tweets.
