Post Aggies too cocky with their freshmen?

I previously started a SC vs TAMU prediction thread and some Aggie fans joined in the thread, claiming their All-American Freshmen are just about ready to make a run for the national title. I don't know how this makes me feel. I just wanted to know what everybody thought about it. Do their Freshmen look as good as they claim they are in practice? If not why are they so overconfident. As spurrier said it's all talking season, but that's what we do here. And even so it seems kind of pointless to claim so many untrue facts. They will only make a laughing stock out of themselves and their team.

I personally think their claims are ultimately false, yet they may have some true, raw talent.... but unless your Clowney or Lattimore or you make some serious noise for your team in the offseason, you won't be a serious contender at all, Which I believe is the case here.

I can't see us playing TAMU and having a desperate problem against a bunch of freshmen no matter how good they are.

What do you guys think?

I posted this earlier on another thread, but here is one of them... He recently power cleaned 350lbs 3 times... Dude is a monster and being billed as the "Next Clowney"

Although I have heard his work ethic is outstanding and the upperclassmen are stepping their games up too because they see that they could be playing "left out" with talent like that behind them.

The lack of pass rush killed us last year and it will be much better with these guys (can't get much worse honestly) which should improve our D tremendously.

Several of the games that we lost last year were winnable had we just had one or two more stops and we think this year we will get those one or two more stops.

BEAT TAMU


freshman can put the hurt on you at times.

examples:

todd gurley
marcus lattimore
jadeveon clowney
vernon hargreaves III
laquon treadwell
leonard floyd


all those guys and many more had breakout years as true freshman.

now, a whole team full? I doubt it.

however, it only takes one or two to produce at a high level and it could be a game changer.

Wow, Clowney with a work ethic? This guy could revolutionize the game!

I heard he's running low 4.2's in the 40 right now too? Can you confirm...?

Still a freshmen. The game is different for underclassmen who play in the trenches. Its not as easy of a transition as tailbacks and receivers.

This was shot a year ago and he is bigger and faster now, but it will give you an idea of who he is.

GUYS DID YOU SEE THAT VIDEO? It only took him like 3 seconds to pile drive a scrawny linebacker in high school. Man, we better watch out Skai Moore is in some REAL trouble now. Mr. 4 star macho man is going to completely rock our world. I bet he could take you to the Playoffs 1 on 11 every game! Holy schnickes, my new prediction is we loose 0-93829

Bro do you even football??

Scrawny linebacker? You realize a LB plays on the same side of the ball as him right and you also realize that this is Texas high school football, not that stuff up there in SC right ???

My point wasn't that now all of the sudden we are going to beat you eleventy million to zero, but the question was posed as to why we were excited about our freshman. And not a single one of you would be down in the dumps about getting this 5 * (not 4 as you stated) kid who was ranked as the best DL recruit in the state of Texas and some say overall in the nation.

rant over... carry on
