Texas A&M football is 4-2 and 2-1 in conference, and the Gig ‘Em Gazette staff have some thoughts about how the season has gone thus far.

We’re officially at the midway point of the regular season of college football, and for the Texas A&M football team things have gone about as anyone could have reasonably expected.

The Aggies are 4-2 with wins over Northwestern State, UL-Monroe, Arkansas and Kentucky. The first two of those wins the offense exploded and looked like they could be on their way to great things. The past two weeks against good SEC defenses has been a struggle, though they’ve been able to squeeze out a win.

Their losses have come against two of the best teams in the country. The first was a tough loss to No. 2 (No. 4 right now) Clemson at home in which the Aggies had a win in their hands, but committed two costly turnovers (one was iffy at best thanks to the refs) in scoring position. They lost by two. The second was a 22-point defeat at the hands of Alabama on the road.

Most experts predicted the Aggies would lose both of these games. The true test of how much better they are with Fisher will come in the next month. They have road games at South Carolina, Mississippi State and Auburn (plus one bye week).

If the Aggies have any designs on making it to a respectable bowl game, they have to go 2-1 at worst in this stretch.

With the season halfway in the books, our staff put together some thoughts on the season.
