5. Aggies finishes with at least 10 wins

It’s fairly obvious that if all of the above happens, the Aggies will have a very successful season. One thing you could never take away from Kevin Sumlin is his ability to recruit at a high level. It’s not like Fisher is inheriting a dormant program. He is taking over for a team that vastly under achieved in its last four years in the last regime, but still had winning seasons in all of those years.

It could take time. Fisher may need more than one offseason to develop this team into perennial contenders. Or, it could end up that this group just needed a new voice.

Sumlin finished 11-2 in his first year as head coach. Fisher absolutely does not have a Johnny Football on the roster, but that doesn’t mean this team can’t rally around its new coach and produce better results on the field.

Fisher has a tough draw in September, but if they go at least 1-1 against top five opponents Clemson and Alabama, it will give the group a ton of confidence for the rest of the season.

Next: Would Jalen Hurts make sense for Texas A&M?

Remember, these are bold predictions. I don’t expect all five to happen, but there is evidence that all five could happen. That’s what kind of effect Fisher is supposed to have on this program. Let’s see if he can deliver.
