Three Reasons Texas A&M Football Gets Back on Track Against SC
It’s hard to overstate the stakes of this game for the Aggies, at least insofar as how deleterious a loss might be for Texas A&M football in this matchup. Dwelling on a two-game losing streak—even if the Aggies were not favored to win either game—over a bye week has not been fun for the Aggie faithful. It has especially been rough given that it appears to have at least contributed to two decommitments in the Aggies’ class—a rare occurrence under Jimbo.
So how much would a win do? Well, it—at least for a week—will stem the tide of negativity that is flowing all too freely from Texas A&M football fans at the moment. I doubt it will change anyone’s mind regarding whether or not Jimbo should be kept around—that conversation, in my opinion, can only be touched pending the results of these two big road games at Oxford and Baton Rouge. Even if the Aggies win huge in this one, though, I don’t think it will change the minds of a certain camp; to some, no matter how well you play against an inferior opponent, it is profoundly uninformative about anything going forward. This, of course, is untrue, but it doesn’t stop people from asserting it loudly and brashly wherever they can.
Even a close win, it seems, may not be enough for some. Be that as it may, though, just as when the Aggies lose, what matters is in that win and loss column. That said, I expect this game to not only be a win, but a resounding win. Let’s talk about why.
