The Texas A&M Football team came into their matchup against the Colorado Buffaloes as a heavy favorite. The game, however, did not go as planned. Instead, the Aggies struggled for 60 minutes, not holding a lead until there were just five minutes remaining in the contest.
They got the win, but it wasn’t pretty.
The same offense that put up 41 points in their first contest of the season only managed to put up ten points in total. There are a lot of words that could be used to describe this game but one rises above the rest — worrisome.
The game ended 10-7 in a hair-greying, low-scoring matchup.
Today, I’m going to go over three reasons why you need to worry about the Aggies going forward in 2021.
Reason No. 1: The Texas A&M Football team may have to go without their starting quarterback
The first, and perhaps most obvious worry, is in regards to Haynes King, who left the game early against Colorado with a leg injury after a rough hit. After he left the game, the Texas A&M offense was, well… terrible.
Texas A&M managed to collect less than half of the yardage that they did a week ago. They still outgained Colorado, but the offense looked worse than it has in the Jimbo Fisher era. That, in itself, was the saving grace of Saturday’s game — the defense was good enough to allow for such terrible offense.
But this raises serious concern’s about this team’s ability to operate without King under center. Colorado has had a stingy defense under Karl Dorrell, but their unit pales in comparison to some SEC units that A&M will see this year.
We still don’t know when King will be back (as of Saturday night) and it doesn’t seem like this offense can function without him.
