Conner Weigman Keeps Killing it For Texas A&M Football
This is a huge opportunity, narrative-wise, for the budding star QB. Running up back-to-back on the schedule with a big game in Tuscaloosa, he can really set himself apart as the talent at signal-caller in the state of Texas. As it stands, it looks like most naysayers and nonbelievers have written off week 1’s performance as having more to do with either UNM’s defense or the Aggie receivers than Weigman’s talent.
Lance Guidry’s defense will be a solid unit. He’s an impressive coordinator, and I don’t doubt that the Hurricanes will go on to record some outstanding defensive performances over the course of the year.
But they’re weak at corner. They’re vulnerable.
In another world, maybe, they might have been able to shore that up before facing a team that could exploit that weakness. It’s possible that they could have fixed—or maybe just masked—their issues until their fans got a more realistic expectation of the actual quality of their team—because, as it is, they’re doing an awful lot of chirping.
But not in this one.
This is the world where they face Conner Weigman, Evan Stewart, Noah Thomas, and Ainias Smith. This is the world where they get a rude awakening only two games into their young season; an awakening that shows them who they really are, and who he really is. This is the world where they get dragged out into the deep waters, and this is the world where they fold.
Look at Conner’s face early in this clip. Just look at it.
That is the face of a man who will not have mercy on you. That is the face of a man who sees your weakness and smiles while ripping your heart out. It’s unfortunate for Canes fans that they happen to be in the way. But that quarterback is coming for everything this year; this team is coming for everything this year. And to quote that very man, “they can’t do nothing about it.”
If you think this is overwrought and too dramatic, you’re right. But I had fun writing it.
