Any hint of a quarterback controversy in Aggieland was seemingly put to bed when Fisher stuck with Mond after he struggled in back-to-back losses to Mississippi State and Auburn. If there was ever a time to go to Starkel, that would have been it. Starkel saw the signs, obviously, and will pursue a career elsewhere.
Mond showed drastic improvement as a passer in 2018. While inconsistent, he got better in the pocket overall. He still needs to work on getting rid of the ball and scanning the field quicker, but it was truly remarkable how much different Mond was with Fisher compared to his lone season with Kevin Sumlin.
He completed 57.3 percent of his passes for 3,107 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He took care of the ball much better with the tutelage of Fisher. He also added 472 yards and seven touchdowns as a runner.
Fisher now has to get Mond playing with confidence more consistently. The games against Mississippi State and Auburn weren’t just bad, they were awful.
Mond has two years of eligibility remaining. Any dreams the Aggies have of competing for a national championship in these years rest on his shoulders.
