Oh Aggy, Part Deux

Recommended Posts

LOL. The aggies now have two losses with probably losses against LSU, Alabama, and Georgia. If they lose to Arkansas next week on the road then the aggies could be looking at a 6-6 season.:)

 

Kevin Sumlin apparently trolls A&M after Aggie loss

Did you see aggy empty the stands this past weekend? For a fanbase who brags about never leaving early, they have done it several times. 

They were out of beer and who wanted to watch that crap show sober?

Talked to a couple of aggies that went to the game both were disappointed in the crowd leaving early. I listened to texags this morning and they also discussed the crowd leaving early. Gabe said that aggy no longer has a hostile home field advantage.

So much for "the nicest fans in all of college football."

A friend of mine parked his car in College Station near the aggy campus and thoughtlessly left two tickets to the next A&M home game on his dashboard, in plain sight.

Some thoughtless asshole smashed out the driver's side window and left four more.

LOL

The persistent ranking of Texas A&M (14). Aggies fans are still waiting for their breakthrough in the SEC West, but two groups sure seem like believers in the program — the voters in both the AP and coaches’ polls. Texas A&M began the season No. 12 in the AP poll and No. 11 with the coaches. It has since proceeded to lose three times, twice at home, while trailing by double digits for 88:48 of 90 second-half minutes in those losses. In other words, the Aggies were not close to winning any of them. They did, however, beat powerhouses Texas State, Lamar and Arkansas (all of whom are winless against Power Five opponents).

And yet this week is the first time the Aggies have fallen out of the Top 25. They did, however, still receive votes in both polls. Beating mighty Mississippi this week might be enough to get them back into the rankings.

Only aggy could watch the end of last night's game and take pride in one of their alumni turning into a thug on national television...

I'm not a fan of aggy at all but the majority over at texaggy are saying what Myles did was bush league.

WILL JIMBO TURN AGGIES INTO A CONTENDER?

THE STORYLINE

For years, there has been a narrative that Texas A&M was the sleeping giant in college football. The school had money, boosters, facilities – everything needed to become a major powerhouse.

When Jimbo Fisher was hired, the Aggies became convinced it was finally their time to compete for conference championships and maybe even get to the College Football Playoff. It felt like a national championship was possible in College Station.

Two years in, there remain serious questions. After going 9-4 in Fisher’s first season, Texas A&M stumbled to 7-5 this year albeit with one of the toughest schedules in the country. A 50-7 walloping at LSU last weekend might have exposed the distance A&M still has to travel to become a national player.

There are positives though. Recruiting is going well as the Aggies have the fifth-best class nationally. There is a chance A&M could land the top-three in-state players if five-star RB 

 commits, a first in Rivals' history dating back to 2002.

But quarterback development with 

 has been non-existent. This season, the Aggies didn’t upset any team, with losses to Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia and LSU. The Aggies almost lost to lowly Arkansas on a neutral field.

Is there confidence Fisher will still make Texas A&M a national contender or are the Aggies destined for also-ran status in the coming years?

FIRST TAKE: MARK PASSWATERS, AGGIEYELL.COM

“What's gone right for Texas A&M since Jimbo Fisher arrived? They've gotten tougher and are better prepared for the SEC grind. There's only one game in the past two years (albeit the last one) where they were just flat non-competitive. That was commonplace late in the Kevin Sumlin era. Recruiting has gone from good to elite; players like 

 and  , who wouldn't have sniffed the NFL otherwise, got drafted last year.

“What hasn't worked? They're still getting beaten by the top rung SEC teams. They've lost games they shouldn't have to Auburn the past two years. Fisher is known as a QB guru, but Mond remains frustratingly inconsistent. His playcalling can be repetitive and stale. Most importantly, the offensive line has been terrible two straight years.

"The prospects of success are obvious as 'his' players -- 

,  ,  ,   and   -- starred as freshmen, but there's still a lot of work to be done. Fisher wasn't hired to turn this thing around overnight, and he hasn't. But it does seem like he's at least righted the ship and has it going in the right direction.”

SECOND TAKE: MIKE FARRELL, RIVALS.COM

“It takes longer than two years but I just don’t know if they’re going to get there. We’ve heard this before – Texas A&M is the sleeping giant in college football but the Aggies are in the SEC West and the last time I checked, LSU is getting better, Alabama is still elite and Auburn can still beat anybody. I would put Texas A&M fourth in its own division.

“What’s it going to take? Mond hasn’t progressed as expected. I worry quite a bit about the defense as well. If you’re going to base it on the way the Aggies played LSU, this is not a team moving forward. That was an embarrassment and it shows how far away they are from competing with the best teams in the SEC West. It takes more than two years but talk to me again in two years and I don’t know if we’ll be having a different conversation.”

The best win aggy has was vs Miss St who finished 6-6. Their next best win(s) were against teams that won 4 games total. They lost all 5 games they had to teams that were or are ranked in the top 25 with a couple of them close (6, 8 & 14 pts) and a couple being very one-sided (43 & 19). They also squeaked by a bad Arkansas team. 

Texas has 2 wins vs teams that were or are ranked in the Top 25, ok lite & K St. They lost 3 games to teams currently in the Top 10 by 7pts (2x) and 14pts. Iowa St was in the Top 25 when they beat the Horns at home by 1. Texas squeaked by a bad Kansas team at home. Their worse loss was to TCU on the road by 14 which also happens to be Sam's worst game of the year.
