When Texas A&M made the choice to SECede from the Big 12 did they know what they were truly getting themselves into? This year’s schedule features every national champion from 2006 to present. Have fun with that. The Aggies finished fourth in the Big 12 in passing last year but 11th overall, shows you how passing nuts their old league was versus the new league.
2011 was: a mediocre year in school history. They led the nation in sacks, but overall their secondary was terrible. They didn’t exactly have a monster defensive line, but now Cyrus Gray is gone to the NFL. The front seven is this year’s biggest question mark. The Aggies went 7-6 and won a bowl game over Northwestern in Texas. Ryan Tannehill a decorated passer with the hottest wife ever Lauren Ufer,or Lauren Tannehill is also gone.
2012 will go smoothly if: the new signal caller Jameil Showers runs things like a mayor. There’s plenty of experience at WR fr him with Ryan Swope and Uzoma Nwachukwu, two future NFL draft picks at that position.
2012 will be rough if: the injury bug bites. they have talent everywhere, but also a lack of depth. There’s a new staff and new systems to be broken in as Kevin Sumlin brings his offensive mind to College Station. Former Texas Tech gunslinger Kliff Kingsbury is the new offensive coordinator.
BMOC: All the dudes I just mentioned, plus running back Christine Michael (also on the listing below) Offensive tackles Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews, the latter of which does indeed reside within that famous NFL family: Bruce Matthews, Clay Matthews, Casey Matthes etc. And ond’t forget DE Damontre Moore and LB Sean Porter.
All Name team: CB Deshazor Everett, DT SHayvion Hatten
Bottom Line: 7-8 wins looks likely. They might be deserving of more, but that schedule is unforgiving
