The most recent installment of the Aggies and the Tide matching up in Kyle went a lot differently than it had two years prior. For one thing, both teams struggled significantly to score throughout the day. A&M had once again seemingly started off strong, but failing to convert on a 4th down deep within Bama territory set the tone for things.

Milroe and Burton connected on several deep passes against what felt like a hapless Aggie secondary. The Tide running game could find absolutely no purchase, however.

Max Johnson simply wasn’t up to the task on the day in question. Despite having receivers running free downfield several times, he never pulled the trigger. In a game where a lot fell on his shoulders, due to the stoutness of the Alabama rush defense, he couldn’t deliver in those moments.

In the end, the score looked closer than the game felt. A field goal block returned for a touchdown got overturned in favor of the Aggies, and a late score by Ainias Smith gave some hope in the waning seconds, but the Tide emerged with the victory when all was said and done. 

If Jimbo wins that game, he’s probably still here. There’s a lot of close calls in his tenure, but that one might have been the most consequential. In all, though, I think Aggie fans would rather have Elko right now than have that game on that day go slightly differently.
