Three Reasons Texas A&M Football Triumphs against Lowly MSU
Let’s all be honest here: if Texas A&M football somehow found a way to lose to the Mississippi State Bulldogs, it would be catastrophic. Now, I won’t lie: as I said in my Q&A with Mississippi State Blog and our sister site Maroon and White nation yesterday, there is a contingent of Texas A&M football fan that is darkly eager for such a result, as they consider it a step towards Jimbo being fired, which this type of fan has come to desire above all else as the highest good for the program going forward.
Whether or not there is validity to the idea that firing Jimbo is the best move for the program going forward, I will say the same thing I did before the South Carolina game: if you want the team to lose this game just because you think it will make it more likely that Jimbo will be gone, you don’t actually want the best for the program: you want personal catharsis. It is not good for the program to lose a game like this, no matter what you think the down-the-road results might be from that eventuality.
That said, I do not think there is very much of a chance that the Aggies lose this game. Yes, Texas A&M football has lost games to less talented Bulldog squads in the past, but that generally happened due to a lackluster Aggie defense, difficult offensive scheme to defend, or the current quarterback of the Dallas Football Cow Boys. None of those factors are currently at play, pending where Will Rogers may or may not be drafted. So let’s look at why the Aggies will put a beatdown on the Bulldogs in this game.
