The Texas A&M Football team could go either way in the 2021-22 season. The Aggies have a defense that can only improve from their elite 2020 season and an offense full of question marks.
With Jimbo Fisher in charge, it seems like the Aggies are only capable of improving from year to year, so one question stands above the rest — can the Texas A&M Football team improve, even with losses on the offensive line and at the quarterback position.
This is a question that Texas A&M Football fans have been asking themselves throughout the entire offseason. More importantly, though, this is a question that Bleacher Report asked themselves about every 2021 contender for the College Football Playoff.
Bleacher Report is buying into the Texas A&M Football hype for 2021-22
On Tuesday, Bleacher Report published an article about whether they are buying or selling top contenders for the 2021 College Football Playoff.
Among the listed teams of contenders were mostly schools that have made consistent appearances in early top ten rankings. Here is a list of each college football team on Bleacher Report’s list:
- Iowa State
- Texas A&M
- Ohio State
Of the teams listed, four are from the SEC, meaning the Aggies will have tough competition if they want to make a run at the College Football Playoff.
Bleacher Report only listed two of these teams as contenders to buy into — Alabama and Texas A&M. Alabama gets the normal benefit of the doubt treatment, despite losing a lot of talent, while the Aggies’ reasoning has a more logical approach.
Here’s a small tidbit from Kerry Miller on why Texas A&M’s offensive line and quarterback changes won’t be a huge issue in College Station.
"I think these Aggies deserve slightly better than that, particularly since they’ll have ample opportunity to figure out their QB/OL situation while opening the season against Kent State, Colorado, New Mexico, Arkansas and Mississippi State."
Miller mentions the Aggies’ easy start to the season as a reason why they shouldn’t have to worry about replacing certain players. This is a reason that many fans turn to as to why the offense could heat up before they get into the meat of their SEC schedule.
Hopefully, Bleacher Report is right about this one, as the Aggies will look to take the next step into contention with Jimbo Fisher in charge.
