Texas A&M football is under new management, so it’s totally reasonable to expect an undefeated season and national championship in year one. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE GONNA DO TO EM, AGGIES.

It’s footbaw season, Ags! Well, the Maroon And White Game is this week, which means after Saturday most of us will probably forget about football until August. Enjoy pool parties at Traditions with Candy 95.1 handing out free Bacardi canned mojitos, y’all.

(True story…my friends and I partied with Big Black at one of the summer pool parties when we were living in Aggieland. Can you tell I’m proud of it? RIP Big Black.)

There are plenty of reasons to get excited for Aggie football in 2018.

Jimbo Fisher came in and turned off the music at practices for a legitimately practical reason. Seriously, why did we think it was so cool? Kevin Damn Sumlin clearly didn’t care if his players could hear him properly.

The best part of this football team is no longer a helicopter. Admittedly, the Swaggercopter was cool. It struck fear and anger into the hearts of t-shirt t.u. fans as Sumlin routinely dominated Charlie Strong on the recruiting trail. The good thing is Fisher doesn’t need gimmicks to bring in top talent.

Maybe the most exciting reason is Texas A&M is going to finally get back to RUNNING THE DANG BALL. Fisher runs a pro-style offense and the NFL is littered with running backs who went through his system and are having successful NFL careers. TRILLveon Williams has to be one happy camper.

Having said all that, it’s time to get excited and make some dang predictions for the dang 2018 Texas A&M football team.
