COLLEGE STATION, TX – OCTOBER 29: Ryan Tannehill /

Ah, the spring is here! Springtime is known for its sense of new beginnings and new life. Maybe you’ve seen some baby calves as you’ve driven by ranches or maybe you’ve even noticed those beautiful Texas bluebonnets on the side of the road. There’s new life everywhere during this time of year, especially when it comes to Texas A&M football.

The Aggies had their very own spring rejuvenation at their annual spring football game Saturday, April 14. It was a revival of the team’s presence, characters, and their abilities. Plus, the first on-the-field look at the shiny, new football coach, Jimbo Fisher.

However, something that is not as new and youthful in Aggieland, something that hasn’t been in existence since 2013, save 2016 if you count Trevor Knight’s brief tenure at Texas A&M, is stability at the quarterback position.

As you may know, it has been a coin flip each year at who will be the starting quarterback and here we are again. Heads or tails? Kellen Mond and Nick Starkel seem to be the recurring choices. While I think an argument could be made for both, after Saturday’s game and performances last season, in my eyes, there is a clear starter. First, however, let’s do a quick analysis of each quarterback’s performance at the 2018 Spring Football game.
