The Texas A&M Football team is coming off of their best season in this millennium. In just his third season, Jimbo Fisher led the Aggies to a 4th-ranked finish. If not for an early loss against Alabama, we may be speaking about an SEC Championship and College Football Playoff appearance in the rear-view mirror.

But that wasn’t what happened. The Aggies took an ugly loss and they felt the effects through the very end of the year when they were left out of the competition.

They’ll look to build off of their success in 2021. The team has its eyes on the prize, looking to compete for an SEC title in year four under Fisher’s reign.

Texas A&M Football has a few possible scenarios ahead of them

Aggie fans will be hoping that the team has a successful year, but with a total overhaul of the offensive line and a new quarterback under center, things could go awry for this squad. That said, Texas A&M has an excellent coaching staff with a plan to replace Kellen Mond, so expectations will be high.

Of course, there’s also another option — an option that TAMU fans will be all too familiar with. Mediocrity.

For too long, mediocrity has been the standard in College Station and this is something that fans will not expect after such a successful season. That said, one year does not turn Texas A&M into a powerhouse, so they’ll have to sustain their success if they want to be looked at as one of the best teams in the country.

There are a few possibilities of what could happen in 2021. Let’s start with the worst and finish with the best.
