Photo: Texas A&M's 'Swagcopter' gets a new paint job

Wednesday November 27th, 2013

Just look at that thing. The next time I need my helicopter to fly unnoticed through the TV from "Poltergeist," I know exactly where to go. Coach Kevin Sumlin uses the "Swagcopter" for an extra boost on recruiting visits, and I guess it needed a fresh paint job as well. Maroon just wasn't doing the trick this week.

From earlier in November, Sumlin discussed the aerial threat:

"It seems to be working, because the helicopter is undefeated when it comes to signings and commitments," he quipped. "We're going to keep it going, I know that. You change a lot of things, you evaluate and update your program all the time, but that's one thing we'll just keep going."
