The Texas A&M football team hasn’t found the exact results that it has been looking for recently on the field. Despite College Football Playoff dreams, A&M has fallen short of the competition in all four seasons under Jimbo Fisher. That could change quickly.

But regardless of how the Aggies have performed on the field, they always look good in the maroon and white… right?

Some don’t think so, as the Aggies were recently given a less-than-desirable ranking in GatorsWire (USA Today)’s SEC uniform rankings. Do people genuinely dislike Texas A&M’s uniforms or is this a very specific opinion?

There is little-to-no explanation for why Texas A&M’s uniforms rank last in USA Today’s rankings

As somebody who has always believed that Texas A&M’s uniforms are among the best in college football (and college basketball, for that matter), I was baffled to see that the Aggies ranked second-to-last by USA Today.

Don’t worry, the creator of these rankings gave a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Texas A&M’s uniforms were among the worst on their list. Just kidding, they left a single sentence of reasoning.

"Texas A&M’s logo and lettering are more aesthetically pleasing than Mississippi State’s."

That’s it. That’s all we got.

The ranking was accompanied by a D+ grade which, for what it’s worth, is, in fact, ahead of Mississippi State. But is this an opinion that is widely accepted or does the writer of that article have a vendetta against teams that wear maroon and white?

FanSided’s Saturday Blitz ranked Texas A&M’s uniforms at 7th in the SEC, though they only had compliments for the Aggies’ jerseys. Here’s what Austin Lloyd said.

"Just like with many other teams on this list, the Aggies’ logo is very pleasing from a visual standpoint. The gigantic “T” standing between the “A” and “M” is such a classic look for the program.While I hinted at the possibility that Auburn relies on the color white too heavily for their home uniforms, I feel that A&M uses just the right amount, and the dark maroon base with the white letters and facemask looks beautiful as a combo."

In all honesty, it’s hard to find anybody who ranks these uniforms beyond the middle of the pack in the SEC. At the same time, nobody dislikes these uniforms. Perhaps the Aggies’ classic look has earned them the ultimate “meh” opinion.

Next. Texas A&M vs. Auburn could be game of the year. dark

I, for one, think they’re among the best in the nation.
