Saturday Down South Predicts All-SEC Honors for Texas A&M Football Signal Caller?

In recent years, Saturday Down South hasn’t exactly been the preferred news outlet for Texas A&M football fans. More often than not, a certain faction of the Maroon and White faithful tend to feel as though the SEC-oriented blog doesn’t give the Aggies a fair shake. It can certainly seem as though they tend to be overly negative at times when it comes to the Ags, especially during the latter days of Jimbo Fisher.

Of course, the days of Jimbo Fisher are now gone. The Elko Era is here, and with it, a renewed optimism surrounding the program. That optimism appears to extend beyond just the Maroon and White faithful, however; while some still hold a justified wait-and-see approach (I say justified with the eventualities of the past two years squarely in my mind), there are others who are excited by the potential of this roster.

The crown jewel of the top-end potential packed into this Texas A&M football squad is, without a doubt, Conner Weigman. The aplomb he demonstrated near the end of 2022 and in his 3.5 games this past year has Aggie fans extremely excited about what he could bring to a team in the 2024 season. Combine that god-given ability with the schematically impressive offense that Collin Klein has brought to College Station, and the Aggie offense has the potential to be special this fall.

Conner O’Gara of Saturday Down South sees the vision. Despite the negative press from that site that has been aimed at the Aggies in the past, O’Gara—to his credit—gives a more-than-fair evaluation of Weigman’s prospects for the 2024 season. His ceiling is sky-high, and O’Gara is well aware of that fact.

For all the reasons stated above, as well as various others (read the article here), O’Gara sees that Weigman could rise to the 1st Team All-SEC level in 2024. In a conference replete with QB talent, including the far-overhyped Quinn Ewers now joining, that’s some high praise. Weigman will have to overcome both unwarranted media bias towards other programs as well as actual high-level performers in order to gain this distinction.

Is he up to the challenge? In my book, without question. I can’t wait to see how he performs in the spring, and every Texas A&M football fan is excited to see how he looks in Klein’s offense in the spring game (April 20, 2024).
