3 Takeaways from Texas A&M Football Notching Decisive Win
That was a sorely needed victory for Texas A&M football. The Aggie faithful had been quite restless over the last few weeks, given the frustrating nature of the past two games and the inaction over the bye week. During that bye week, too, the Aggie recruiting class suffered a couple of blows, furthering the sullen character of the fan base at large.
What we got coming out of the bye week was a win that, while up-and-down at times, was ultimately pretty decisive, statistically speaking, and gave plenty of reasons for hope moving forward. All things considered, Max Johnson played well for the most part. There were a few things he missed and plays he should not have made, but he also delivered some great throws, especially across the middle, in some key situations.
Believe it or not, as I mentioned yesterday in the instant reaction, this is the most points scored by the offense for Texas A&M football since Max Johnson took over as starter—and, therefore, the most scored by the offense yet in SEC play. In one sense you say “of course,” as this was the worst defense the Aggies have yet played in conference, but it’s still good to see stretches where things actually looked workable on that side of the ball after far too much time where they looked patently broken. The rushing attack is still having issues, but it didn’t cost the Ags in this instance.
So what are the takeaways? What can we take from this game and move forward with? Let’s dive in.
