You all need to get a grip. Balanced? Really Flea?
ATM has NEVER been balanced since joining the conference. With Manziel, you just had a tendency to outscore everyone else.
A defense? You guys let Duke "walk a mudhole" in that "balanced" defense of yours. Hell, Duke should have won that game.... You let DUKE of all teams, lay 661 total yards on that defense.... You also have to realize that USC has the longest home winning streak in America?
More food for thought, since 2010, we're 27-2 at Williams-Brice. You guys need to quit being such homers. Geez. There's going to be so much Aggie blood on that field, Jason Voorhees is going to be envious.
We're going to smoke you guys like a pack of.....
Yeap. We are going to get creamed like a can of corn. I hope your team feels the same way. BTW, did you notice that our balanced defense was equally crappy against both the run and the pass. I guess starting something like 5 underclassmen in the front 7, and losing your top DL and LB (top tackler on the team) before the bowl wouldn't make a difference. We also had no real offense in the first half.
I don't see that as an excuse, but a reason for you to zip it about our defense. You don't seem to have done any looking into our team, and have little to no insight into how bare the defensive cupboard was when Sumlin took over. I hope the o' Ball Coach has done the same. I could have stared for A&M at DE last year and I run the 40 in about three days. Now, Coach Sumlin knows he has a lot of good will from the past two years, and he has been getting all of the talent he can stockpile. He also knows that A&M fired (excuse me reassigned) our most winning coach for not showing enough progress. He was on the staff.
Do you think that there will be no improvement on our defense? We know there will be some set backs on offense. There is not a way to change that when you lose three first rounders and your leading tailback. I seem to remember some of your important players heading to the NFL as well. In fact, I usually see Clowney walking to practice every morning for the past few weeks.
I still think we have a chance to win if the game stays close. Simply put, your offense has not really over impressed me, and your defense will also have some holes to fill. Now, if our young team breaks and runs, we will have a long year. I don't think that will be the case.
Also, I meant to say we would lose to at least one of the Bama twins. I am not sure, we have been pretty good on the road for the past two years, except for MU and LSU.
