Default Texas A&M

I listen to a lot of talk and have read a lot recently about Texas A&M and how they took the SEC by storm and everyone should be on the look out for them.

Question is do you think the success TAMU had last season will be sustainable 3 years from now, or do you expect them to become an 8-4 team within the next 3 years?

I'm on the fence. One one hand I would like to see someone other than LSU or Alabama to be atop the West, but on the other hand I dont know that TAMU will be that team. I dont expect Manziel to have a repeat performance and a lot of their success was because of him. Seems good defense usually wins out, does anyone know how their D ranked? Or even in the Big 12, how it ranked?

Their success has a lot to do with the senior OL and other positions led by older guys. They will not be as good as last year. They will beat up weak defenses but will still get held down by Florida, LSU and Bama, just like they did last year.

Default Re: Texas A&M

The majority of their offensive line returns and it is anchored by Jake Matthews who moves to LT.
He would have been a top 10-15 pick this year and will compete with Lewan this year for the best LT in the nation (probably a top 5-10 pick in 2014)

I think they'll be a 10 win team this year, and on paper they've gotten good recruits, lets see if they turn out.

They are the team I thought we'd be when Spur first got here. They are taking everybody by storm, and are having a monster recruiting class, two years in a row.

A&M will be a force for years to come. They recruit out of Texas, have $$ for days, nice facilities, good fan base, SEC brand to now pimp. They will be a big boy in the SEC in a few years time.

I think A&M will be at the top for awhile. I could see them becoming just like LSU, and Bama. They'll be in the title hunt year in, and year out.

They might have hired the right coach. It seems like it is all about that. Bama sucks with Shula and A&M sucked with Sherman. 1 year doesn't make a trend though. I can guarantee you we will hear predictions of their greatness every season.

Texas A&M is a force and will remain highly successful for years to come. University with a TON of "old" money, mixed with new SEC money, and Texas recruiting is a recipe for long term success.

If you don't want traditional cross division rivals, you should withdraw from the SEC. The entire conference is full of rivalries, and that's what makes every weekend so compelling.

You guys obviously haven't been paying attention to the discussions that will take place in Destin, FL next week. If you had, then my comment in regards to TA&M and Alabama make sense.

Edit: That article doesn't do the best job of explaining it, but it was the first one I found....

Try this one.

This topic has HUGE ramifications for both the league and any aspirations we might have for the National Championship.

No way this year they are playing at LSU. They haven't played a night game at one of the major venues like Death Valley. LSU, without any offensive help, kept them from doing much all game and won at A&M.
