Default Texas A&M (Predictions & what to expect)

What can we expect from them? I know they’re one of the best teams in the country in time of possession, which can be a meaningless stat depending on the opponent; but is a positive thing against teams that like to speed it up and go quickly.

They’ve got a pretty quick QB who can really beat you with his legs if you go man to man and the defense gets carried downfield covering routes he can get out the pocket and scramble really well. They like to use him on designed runs too obviously. They get their tight end involved in the pass game, which is sortve a staple of Jimbo Fisher offenses. They’ve got talent at every position and have recruited very well. The gamecocks were able to contend for the most part in last years game (losing by only a touchdown) but this is obviously a different team. Much better coached on both sides of the ball.

I’ll know a little more after watching the rest of their game vs. Kentucky and will come back to make my prediction. UK appears to be doing well against their offense though. Locking up their receivers in coverage and getting pressure.im not really sure what A&M’s identity is or what they hang their hat on. They had a helluva day passing against Clemson but it seemed like a one game wonder type of game. There was some miracle catches made in that game.

Their defense is solid.

Offense is hard to judge against Kentucky.

Well all our defense does is Zone and play prevent and attempt to limit teams to field goals every drive. We won't man to man at all as our overall strategy.

This is a horrible matchup for us. Mobile QB, great RB, good defense.

You can go ahead and put that Williams kid down for 100+ yards rushing. Possibly in the 1st half.

Yes but if we keep it close get ready for a big second half we always give teams the first half lol

We should give them a good fight, but if I had to make a prediction now then I will pick the Aggies.

Why can we not make adjustments on the fly in the first half? Why do we have to wait until halftime? Curious, because I honestly don't understand.

Dang. I fully understand the team has left a lot to be desired at times, but I still hate to see people already expecting the worst.

If UK > SC & ATM > UK
Then ATM > SC

This will look exactly like the Kentucky game.

I predict we give up a ton of yards on the ground unless we trust Fenton and Horn to lock down some receivers—which they can. I want to see a real Muschamp, stick the cb by themselves and get after them upfront defense.

I predict, though, that we won’t. We get brought back down to earth a bit. Head into the bye week frustrated and confused.

KY at home was 14 points better than SC.

A&M at home was better in OT than KY tonight by 6.

Remember that home field is +3.5 over neutral site or -3.5 if away, so essentially a 7 point swing.

This will no doubt be a tough game for us (mainly due to all of the injuries IMO), but don't think it is automatically a 14+ point loss.

It’s a really, really bad matchup for us. When a Jimbo Fisher offense is balanced, its as good as it gets. They’ll be balanced against us because we can’t stop the run at alll. Derek freakin Dooley rolled up 300 rushing yards on us today. I cringe to think about what Jimbo will do. Maybe Tayvion Williams sprains an ankle or something.

I think we will be doing good if we hold them to just +14

Seriously man! Why do you even bother watching sports if you're always convinced your supposed favorite team is gonna lose? Furthermore, you always seem to think they're gonna get blown out. It's always possible, of course, but going into it with no hope seems really pathetic. I have to imagine you're not a very pleasant person even when you're not on the internet if that's the type of outlook you have.
