Bold Prediction No. 5: The Texas A&M football team won’t have another low-scoring game (<11 points)
The offense had a lot of moving parts this offseason, with four offensive linemen set to fill in. The same team also saw long-time starter Kellen Mond depart for the NFL, sending in a first-year starter. This first-year starter got injured, as did a large chunk of that offensive line.
Essentially, this mismatched offense has resulted in a scrambled attacking front for the Aggies. A team that was thought to be a contender has turned into a squad that has scored ten or fewer points in half of their games.
Don’t expect it to happen again.
A large portion of this team’s shortcomings offensively has come as a result of growing pains from the team. Jimbo Fisher repeatedly mentioned in his weekly press conference that his squad wasn’t ready mentally to compete. They will be soon.
As bad as the offense has been so far, it’s one of the most talented units in the SEC. They will get it together — it’s only a matter of time before things start to click for Fisher’s offensive unit.
I don’t think this is going to turn into a league-leading offense, but I do think they’ll find their way back toward the middle of the pack in the SEC. They’ll improve to the point where the defense can carry them back toward being a competitive squad.
