Texas A&M football begins to play up to their talent across the board

It’s not a secret that the past two years have been flush with underachievement in College Station. The Aggies, despite pulling in the highest-rated recruiting class of all time in 2022, have only 12 wins across two seasons since that point to show for it.

Of course, they’ve been competitive in a lot of games, but that’s not quite good enough when you are supposed to pack the kind of punch that the Aggies’ talent composite would suggest they should. The time is now for the Aggies to begin living up to their talent.

Luckily, Mike Elko has assembled a Texas A&M football staff that should begin to get the absolute most out of their players. That starts with strength and conditioning legend, as well as three-time national champion with LSU, Tommy Moffitt.

Moffitt is building a monster in College Station. With his modern approach to the science of S&C, stellar resume, and connections throughout the industry, all accounts are that he has revolutionized the offseason workouts for A&M.

More than that, this is a staff that has produced players at the highest level, and guys who have gotten more out of less. OL coach Adam Cushing oversaw a high-quality unit for two years in Durham. WR coach Holmon Wiggins coached up some of the top receivers currently in the NFL. Elko himself created a formidable defense with Duke’s talent level.

I have no doubt that the staff in place will start to get more out of this Texas A&M football team. Once they begin to play up to their potential, the rest of the league is on notice.
