Texas A&M football finished their spring offseason with the Maroon And White Game; here are five takeaways as we head into the summer.
Spring practices and the Spring Game are fun times for college football fans. Although most don’t have access to the practices, it’s the unofficial start of the season to come. Even though the first game is still a few months away, we can get an idea of what we can expect from our teams. For Texas A&M football, there are a ton of questions still left unanswered after 11 starters from last year’s squad are gone.
Some clarity has come with these practices as to who will replace those players. We won’t know officially until the Week 1 depth chart is released, but we will have a pretty good idea of the key players for the 2019 season some time before that.
One thing to note that may end up being a blessing in disguise is the plethora of injuries the team dealt with all throughout camp. 13 starters and key bench players ended up resting for the Maroon And White Game, and even more were in an out of practice in the weeks leading up to the game.
That gave way for other players to step up in their absence, especially at wide receiver and running back, which could both be positions of strength in 2019 but had questions of the depth behind the top players. The backups got valuable reps with the first and second teams and it will benefit the team going forward. Let’s take a look at five other takeaways from this spring.
