You can use a lot of words to describe the month of September for the Texas A&M football team. Hair-greying, disappointing, upsetting. That said, one word seems to rise above the rest — surprising.
And that’s just what college football is. You may think you know something about your team when, in reality, things are not at all as they appear. For this reason, along with a handful of others, Aggie football fans shouldn’t be hitting the panic button just quite yet.
Today, I’m going to be giving five bold predictions for the month of October.
On the surface, this may not seem like a huge accolade. That said, only 35 college football teams averaged over 200 rushing yards — Texas A&M was not one of them.
The Aggies had a disappointing month rushing the ball, especially when you factor in their opponents. The Aggies have played four opponents, only one of which is in the top-90 of ESPN’s Football Power Index.
They have to rush the football more effectively if they want a successful offense. The fans know it, the coaches know it, and opposing teams know it.
It’s hard to see a world where Texas A&M doesn’t improve upon their 168.8 yards per game in the month of October. Expect the Aggies’ pass-heavy offense to find a better balance, giving us a big dose of Isaiah Spiller and Devon Achane.
