5. The entire 2017 season

Let’s break this one down.

Week 1: Historically embarrassing loss to UCLA.

Week 2: Managed to pull away late from an FCS team.

Week 3: Blew out a non-conference cupcake after being led at halftime.

Week 4: Overtime win against a team that didn’t make a bowl and just fired its head coach.

Week 5: This one was fine.

Week 6: The best loss I’ve ever seen.

Week 7: A narrow win against a really bad team that also fired its coach

Week 8: Another embarrassing home loss.

Week 9: See Week 8.

Week 10: Did what they were supposed to do.

Week 11: A somewhat cathartic win against a neutered opponent.

Week 12: An uninspired performance and another loss against our “rival.”

This speaks for itself. Yes, this team is bowl eligible, but those results are pretty unacceptable given what was on the line this season. Kevin Sumlin took this program to new heights and then never went there again. Given what the man is paid, when your boss tells you your job is on the line, act least consistently act like it.

Next: Kevin Sumlin has a quarterback problem

Anyway, I will remember the good more than the bad, and I think a change of scenery will benefit all parties involved. I hope Kevin Sumlin and Texas A&M both land on their feet.
