Words With a Wise Guy #16 – Wendel McRaven, Texas A&M University

Wendel McRaven is the head cross country and distance coach for Texas A&M.  I worked with Wendel at Kent State where he was an assistant coach and eventually the head coach for the Golden Flashes.  Originally from the Chicago area, he also made stops at Alabama, Nebraska and Illinois.  With all of his experience at different types of schools, he has a great perspective on what is going on in the world of college athletics now.  Great podcast!   (0:00) Intro. (1:20) Life at Texas A&M and the SEC right now. (6:00) Thoughts on how some schools are honoring scholarships and some will not in 2021. (9:25) How potentially not having football at Power 5 schools may affect everyone.  (14:30) We run through Wendel’s coaching history from college until now at A&M.
