Texas A&M basketball reminded Aggie fans why we can’t have nice things in a blowout loss to Michigan in the Sweet 16.

They had us fooled again. Just when you thought this team had what it took to make a Final Four run for the first time in school history, the Hyde version of Billy Kennedy’s squad reared its ugly head. Texas A&M basketball was once again sent home in the Sweet 16 for the fifth consecutive time it had made it.

They are 0-5 in Sweet 16 appearances, this time thanks to an early barrage of three pointers that made it feel like A&M fans were watching a bloody nightmare. When would it stop? Why us again? What does Southern California do to Aggies?

The blowout loss to Oklahoma in the Sweet two years ago at the Honda Center, the gut-wrenching loss to UCLA in 2017 at the Rose Bowl that was the beginning of the end to Sumlin’s career, and now Michigan shooting 39-for-63 and 14-for-24 from deep to score the most points in the tournament since 1994 at Staples Center.

Here’s to hoping the Aggies aren’t in the West region anymore.

There wasn’t much good to come from this game. It was a blowout before the first TV timeout. Here are the grades following the Aggies’ blowout loss (hint, it’s pretty much all bad).
