Texas A&M football is entering 2019 with a ton of expectations; here are five bold predictions for Jimbo Fisher’s second year.
Each summer, your very own Gig Em Gazette puts out a list of bold predictions for the upcoming football season. The past two seasons, we are a combined 20 percent (3-15) in these high-hoped predictions coming true. We’re back now, looking to make some ambitious forecasts on the 2019-2020 season. Like every year, we have a feeling that this year may be the year we hit it on the money and up our percentages. This feeling is attributed to one word: security.
The past two, heck, more like four, summers have been filled with nothing but uncertainty for the Aggies looking ahead towards the fall. Questions like “who’s going to play QB, will the Ags fire Kevin Sumlin, how is Jimbo going to change the offense, will the secondary ever step it up” were just a few that were circulating around Aggieland.
Going into the 2019 season, all of those questions, and then some, have been answered. With Kellen Mond securely holding down the quarterback position and Coach Fisher having successfully implemented his offensive scheme, much of the uncertainty has been resolved.
These are two of the most important factors that a team must have figured out if they are wanting to be successful. Without a sure-fire starter at quarterback and an offense that’s comfortable in their own skin, it is going to be incredibly difficult to win many games. Thankfully, the Aggies seem to have it figured out.
Still, with a new season comes new concerns. Much of the front seven departed for the NFL as well as star running back Trayveon Williams. Naturally, someone will have to fill their roles. Along with schedule and changes within other teams, it is the concerns within our own team that allows us to make bold predictions as we have been.
