Seems like they are playing well in this league, but I wonder if they are overrated
Would not be undefeated in the Big 12. Also, not overrated this year.
Last years A&M team would have done better in SEC last year. Ags scored points.. lots of them. Ags played very good run defense. Our secondary was horrible. A&M had over 600 total yards vs Ark last year with 360 rushing.
This years A&M team scores lots of points. This year we play pretty good run defense. Problem we have is still in the secondary, pass defense still isn't that good. Much improved but still not that good. SEC teams just aren't pass happy and aren't built to take advantage of Ags defense biggest weakness. A few Big 12 teams would throw for 400+ against us so no undefeated season in Big 12. La Tech was a nightmare for our defense because they throw like a Big 12 team.
Other A&M weakness is depth on D. If Ags offense doesn't stay on field vs Bama, then Bama size and strength takes it toll on us and we have big problems. Time of possession is crucial for us. Need to avoid 3 and outs.
Finally, we have a major problem in our kicking game this year. You will see this firsthand on Saturday.
