4. Offense relaxed after 14-0 lead

This speaks a little more to the slide about the play-calling, but you almost felt it on the field too. Jashaun Corbin took the opening kickoff 100 yards to the house, Texas A&M forced a three-and-out, then Mond and the Aggies marched 79 yards in eight plays and just 4:50 to take the 14-0 lead.

It had all the makings of a blowout. Then it was like the light switch turned off. The Aggies made uncharacteristic turnovers, dropped passes, missed field goals, committed costly penalties. It felt like all the progress Fisher made as the coach was erased in one game.

Obviously that’s an overreaction. It was one game and has not been the norm so far in the 2018 season. Texas A&M can right the ship and get a win over a ranked opponent at home for the first time since 2015 and all will feel right again.

Next. Aggie offense took several steps back. dark

But if the offense plays like they did against Arkansas, this team might not win another conference game this season. Three of the remaining six are ranked opponents, and all six are better than Arkansas. Your move, Jimbo.
