Ranking Every Texas A&M Football Season in the SEC: #9 - 2015
I did it again.
I promise, I will explain my reasoning when I get to 2023. Maybe it's just too fresh. Maybe it's just my complete distaste for the October-November collapses of the Sumlin years. It most likely is my complete distaste for the October-November collapses of the Sumlin years. But that's just how it has got to be. This is my list, after all!
If for no other reason than the fact that Texas A&M football wore their "Aggie Nights" uniforms for an 11 AM kickoff against South Carolina on Halloween, this season was a travesty. It started off well enough; the win over Arizona State in Houston was hopeful enough. Myles Garrett looked amazing. So did Kyler Murray. It didn't take long for the cracks to show, however: like giving up 23 and 27 to Ball State and Nevada, somehow.
The Alabama game of this year had two bright moments. They were both Justin Evans hitting Derrick Henry really hard.
This was offset, of course, by Kyle Allen throwing three pick-sixes. He followed that up by doing absolutely nothing against Ole Miss. By that point, he was supplanted by Kyler, who barely beat an awful South Carolina team while wearing the aforementioned Aggie Nights uniforms.
Here's the rest of the year: Texas A&M football lost by multiple scores to a very bad Auburn team at home; Allen rotated back in to lead the Aggies to victory over Western Carolina and Vanderbilt; they lost in Baton Rouge, 19-7. The Aggies had Kyler Murray and Myles Garrett on their team, and scored seven points against a Tiger team that started Brandon Harris.
I guess they did have Leonard Fournette, though.
The cherry on top was both Allen and Murray both deciding to transfer, leaving you with ten stars fewer at the QB position in the bowl game than you had leaving the season. Jake Hubenak tried his best, but the Aggies fell by seven points to... Bobby Petrino, Lamar Jackson, and the Louisville Cardinals.
Maybe that last one wasn't such a bad loss.
