Jimbo Fisher has been the head coach of the Texas A&M football team for four full seasons now. Despite some huge wins, the Aggies have been incapable of reaching the next level. Being a top-15 team isn’t enough — when can this Aggie team finally break through?
To do that, A&M has to topple the current leaders of the division. That means that the Aggies have to move past both Alabama and Georgia. But is one more important than the other?
The easy answer here is a simple “yes.” The obvious choice is Alabama, who sits in A&M’s division in the SEC West. Every single year, these two teams will clash and fight for the top spot in their division. That said, Georgia seemingly has a chokehold on the SEC East, indicating that the Aggies should be set to face them on a yearly basis to reach their goals.
As things stand, the Texas A&M football team should consider the Alabama Crimson Tide to be their biggest SEC obstacle
Logically, Alabama is the only guaranteed obstacle for the Texas A&M football team in the SEC. The good news here? The Aggies have already defeated them. Unfortunately, Texas A&M was unable to put the rest of the pieces together and fell short of the SEC Championship Game again. That said, they’ve done the toughest part.
The Texas A&M football team knocked off Alabama in a dominating 41-38 victory at home. There’s no reason to believe that they can’t do it again.
Everything is relative but relative to the normal standard in Tuscaloosa, Alabama has been struggling mightily lately. At the very least, Nick Saban’s teams have looked extremely vulnerable; almost “human” compared to the machines that he has been running in years past.
In 2020, ‘Bama went 13-0 and won the College Football Playoff. They won 12 of these 13 games by at least two touchdowns — it was sheer dominance. But that dominance is gone and in order to become the class of the SEC, Texas A&M has to pounce now.
The Aggies will be upgrading at almost every position next season with a legendary 2022 class set to be on campus for the upcoming season. The Tide, on the other hand, will have a handful of positions to replace, though they will retain Bryce Young.
2022 will be a telling season for the Aggies. Jimbo Fisher has proven that he can beat Nick Saban, but can he put the rest of the pieces together at the same time?
