Texas A&M’s road to the College Football Playoff is all about Notre Dame and white flags

DALLAS — There are two potential paths for Texas A&M to climb into the College Football Playoff, and ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit presented both of them Tuesday, even if he never stated it that way and was forced to apologize for one possibility after the show.

This, of course, is assuming the Aggies’ offense gets back up to speed after a 2-for-16 third-down conversion performance in an uninspired 20-7 win over one-time nemesis LSU on Saturday. Playing better against Auburn, Tennessee and Ole Miss is presumably coach Jimbo Fisher’s first order of business.

But the Aggies were ranked fifth by the committee a week ago, and they were fifth again Tuesday, and it seems entirely possible they will still be sitting

Donald Trump says he will leave White House if electoral college votes for Joe Biden | US news

Donald Trump has said that he will leave the White House in January if the electoral college votes for Democratic president-elect Joe Biden, in the closest the outgoing president has come to conceding defeat.

Biden won the presidential election with 306 electoral college votes – many more than the 270 required – to Trump’s 232. Biden also leads Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote tally.

Trump has so far defied tradition by refusing to concede defeat, instead making a series of baseless claims about alleged ballot fraud and launching legal attempts to challenge the outcomes in several states such Pennsylvania and Michigan.

But desperate efforts by Trump and his aides to overturn results in key states, either by lawsuits or by pressuring state legislators, have failed.

Speaking to reporters on the Thanksgiving holiday, Trump said if Biden – who is due to be sworn in on

Trump says he’ll leave White House if Electoral College seats Biden

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Thursday that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College formalizes President-Elect Joe Biden’s victory — even as he insisted such a decision would be a “mistake” — as he spent his Thanksgiving renewing baseless claims that “massive fraud” and crooked officials in battleground states caused his election defeat.

“Certainly I will. But you know that,” Trump said Thursday when asked whether he would vacate the building, allowing a peaceful transition of power in January. But Trump — taking questions for the first time since Election Day — insisted that “a lot of things” would happen between now and then that might alter the results.

“This has a long way to go,” Trump said, even though he lost.

The fact that a sitting American president even had to address whether or not he would leave office after losing reelection underscores the extent

Trump says he will leave White House following Electoral College vote for Biden

Nov. 26 (UPI) — President Donald Trump said Thursday that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, but continued to cast doubt on the election result.

Trump took questions from reporters from the Diplomatic Room of the White House following a series of video conferences with military service members on Thanksgiving, assuring he would leave the White House on Jan. 20.

“Certainly I will, and you know that,” he said.

The president, however, went on to say “it’s going to be a very hard thing to concede” and declared that the Electoral College would be making a “mistake” by voting for Biden.

He also continued to allege “massive fraud” related to the election and said his challenges in key states would continue.

“You’re going to see things happening over the next week or two that are going to be shocking to people,”

Donald Trump has said that he will leave the White House when the electoral college votes for Democratic president-elect Joe Biden in the closest the outgoing president has come to conceding defeat.

Baylor Scott & White teams with Baylor College of Medicine on new med school campus in Temple

Two of Texas’ leading health care players are teaming up to create a new medical school campus to reduce the state’s physician shortage and foster more health care innovation.

Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest nonprofit hospital system in Texas, said it’s collaborating with Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, the state’s top-ranked medical school. Their 20-year agreement will be anchored by a regional medical school campus in Temple, about a two-hour drive south of Dallas.

In 2023, an inaugural class of 40 medical students is expected to begin training in Temple, and over four years, enrollment is projected to total 160.

The organizations will rely on tuition and donations for expenses, not state funding — with Dallas-based Baylor Scott & White covering any financial shortfalls, said Peter McCanna, president of the hospital company.

“We really believe this is crucially important for our patients and for Texas,” McCanna said
