Takeaways from Texas A&M football spring game: What we can surmise from a defensive domination

We are now more than a day removed from Texas A&M football's annual Maroon and White spring game, which means we are a little over 24 hours into the longest period of waiting in the year: that one between the end of spring and the beginning of fall camp. Luckily, the contest in question gave us plenty to chew on during that time.

Of course, given that your own team is competing against itself, it can be hard to make definitive judgments from a spring game. You have to look a little beneath the surface for why a splash play happened, for example, or why this or that player looked like he was breaking out.

I'm reminded of 2022's example of the now-departed Kent Robinson. The walk-on DB had several big plays in the spring game, leading to a summer of deliberation on whether he should be given a scholarship—or even in the starting rotation! He had a shot at real game action in the Texas Bowl this previous year, and looked as you may expect a walk-on defensive back to look.

I do think, however, upon first watch and rewatch, there are some solid things we can take away from Texas A&M football's spring game. It wasn't a box of nothing, in other words—there was some substance there.

So what are they? What did the Texas A&M football spring game show us about this team? Let's take a look at some of what we learned from the Maroon and White game.
