    Obviously they're gonna do what they want, but to me it's embarrassing to storm the field on this occasion.  If it was Appalachian State storming the field after beating LSU, even with a losing season, that's understandable, but the Aggies.... straight up embarrassing.  IMO it speaks to low expectations.  Fans with high expectations don't storm the field when their team is sub .500 unless they have little expectation of winning a game.

    And even more embarrassing is our fans inability to get over the perpetual downward Hook 'em that I still see in games like this more than a decade removed from the last game with them.  It's like the Horns are forever in the minds of our fans.  I can guarantee the Horns aren't thinking about the Aggies when they play a game.

    My initial thought was similar to yours regarding the field storming, but after seeing the players reactions I think I’m okay with it. They loved it. I also think that’s part of the field storming. The players were out in ticket pull mingling with the students and even giving out donuts and stuff. I think the field storming is just as much about the students celebrating their classmates (the players) as it is anything else.

    Lol I will say.... A&M does have a habit of beating teams when they're highly ranked and then they go on to not be as good afterward. When we beat Arkansas, I believe they were a Top 10 team. And Miami was Top 15. I get that we count it as a win over Top 10, but it IS somewhat misleading. 

    Funny enough, A&M had 5 wins this year. Three of those were against Top 15 teams (2 of those being Top 10). 

    Regardless, to beat a team like LSU, even if they were sleepwalking through the game, was a nice high note to end the season on. Especially since a lot of the young guys looked better and better each week. 

    If they can keep the roster mostly together (I think they will) then there are some really bright spots heading into next year. The amount of youth that played majors roles is just unheard of, and when the playcalling is good they showed what they can do Saturday night. 
     

    Lots of speculation that Jimbo wasn’t even calling plays Saturday night. I don’t know if I believe that, but there was a noticeable difference in  it only the playcalling but the speed in which the plays were relayed in.

    How much money is A&M going to throw at Moore the OL coach at Michigan?

    Not enough. He’s elite and it would take OC money and title to get him imo.
     

     I think the new OC hire will determine what happens with the rest of the hires. I am thinking new OC and let him hire his own OL, QB, WR/TE coach. Coley and Robinson could/should be retained as they are good recruiters and coaches. 
     

    Defensively I believe a move needs to be made at LB coach and I think it’s going to be hard to keep Robinson around another year.

    Question- Does the league get all the money when the levy these fines?

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (November 27, 2022) - The Southeastern Conference announced today that Texas A&M University will be fined for a violation of the league's access to competition area policy due to fans entering the field following its football game against Louisiana State University on November 26.

    Texas A&M will incur a fine of $250,000 for a third offense under the league's access to competition area policy. Texas A&M was last fined for a violation following its football game against Alabama in 2021.

    I think the field storming was stupid. But the players enjoyed themselves (I’ve seen some videos where they appeared to really appreciate the excitement) and I think that a little excitement for them after this long season is worth the money. I wish we wouldnt be a 5-7 team celebrating beating a 9-3 team though…

    My Facebook feed is blown up with Aggie friends posting all about the game. I'm like... where you guys been?

    This is just my opinion, but I think the biggest gain from tonight's win is possibly keeping some guys that might have been thinking of hitting the portal. And the biggest loss is Jimbo might be able to persuade the higher ups that he doesn't need an OC. His on field interview after the game, he said something like "this is what we should have been doing all year long if we would have just executed."

    I do think this was a positive from a momentum standpoint in convincing a few guys to stay (moose looking at you) and it might help with a guy or two in attendance. 
     

    I think Jimbos statements were more about justifying the past season more so than advocating for the next one. I could be wrong but I think he understands that changes need to happen.

    Yep. And were in both of those at half (unraveled in the 2nd half after a big play… one of those was Miss St offsides on a blocked FG that went for a TD). 
     

    The team was right there all year. Couldn’t close. 
     

    I hope LSU beats UGA and blows up the CFP. 

    Yea I’m rooting for LSU next week. I really wanna see the committee sweat over Georgia/Ohio st at 4.

    Man I just looked at the schedule fo, I know the Aggie offense has been atrocious in scoring, but they’ve only been blown out twice all season.

    Yea they have played a lot of close games…. This could have very realistically been a 9-3 or 10-2 season with just one or two plays going different. This team isn’t as bad as the record. 

  8. Watching Michigan gives me the slightest bit of hope (I have very little) that Jimbo can right the ship. Harbaugh had a Jimbo type season where he was left for dead and all but fired. Two years later he makes the playoffs and looks like it could be back to back years if they can hold on. Hell the way they have played today I think they could possibly win the whole thing. It can be done. Not saying Jimbo can but it’s not impossible.

    Having a healthy Neyor back and Johntay cook, along with the other young receivers, Texas is just fine at WR position. There's some smoke around a transfer possibly coming in but I don't want to start rumors, so I'll just say it would be awesome if that smoke turned to fire.

    You can say Evan Stewart. People have been hearing rumors about that transfer since the day he signed at A&M.

    Coley’s recruiting ties with Florida and the job he’s done with these young WRs has him on my keep list too. If Craig still has a job after this season then he’s gotta have pictures on Jimbo or something. A former QB at QB coach and it’s not been pretty. 

    Looking like the Tessier kid as PWO could be our QB. RB be Moss, Daniels, maybe a chance of Achane coming back. Who knows with the WRs. Donovan Green, Thor and maybe you feel good about Jake Johnson sticking around. O-line needs some transfer portal competition for starting spots. 
     

    Are you saying you think all 3 current QBs transfer out?

    Who's on your O.C. Xmas list? 

    Honestly, it all depends on what Jimbo is willing to do. If he’s gonna take a step back and just recruit and be a CEO then I want little Riley. If he’s gonna still want his hand on everything then I think go with a guy like Grimes at Baylor or maybe Longo at UNC. They run pro style offenses with running games just know how to use tempo and innovative ideas. 
     

    What’s more important to me believe it or not is for Jimbo to take his hands off the defense.

    A&M does not have a single offensive skill player committed for the 23' class.  That's just hard to believe at this point.  Are they going to evaluate Sr film and look to get guys after NSD1 or dip into the portal?

    I think once they missed their first few big targets late summer early fall and then looked inept on offense for a few weeks, it was clear the offensive staff was likely out the door. I’d be shocked if anyone but Coley remains. It’s hard to recruit hard knowing you’re gone and I think A&M knows that. I expect them to hire a splash hire at OC and hit the portal hard and hope for the best.

    No I do not. So why DId 'nt A%M ever proclaim  "The Ncaa wont let us play?. i Looked a Little and NEVER saw that.

     Covid 19 is only excuse I ever saw A&M give

    Because there’s no reason to appease the mouth-breathers like yourself who would rather look like an idiot on a message board than show a little common sense.

    As much as we all dislike USC, I see them jumping LSU if they beat Notre Dame this week

    It certainly doesn’t help lsu that nothing short of a 14+ win over A&M this weekend would be looked at negatively simply with how bad A&M is.

    Serious question, is that how they count attendance, tickets sold and not actual number of people coming into the game? That may be a very stupid question, but if that’s the case, I truly had no idea.

    I have no idea for sure how A&M does it, but I do think it’s mostly about tickets sold. Which is why not attending games isn’t the answer for a fanbase trying to “show the decision makers they are unhappy.” The season ticket holders are the ones that matter. You stop buying those and that’s when changes are seriously considered. A&M has a wait list for season tickets most years so most people don’t give theirs up very often since you upgrade seats through tenure not due to price.

    I knew Texas fans were fickle, but never expected to see the 12th men to completely abandon their team. Understand it was a throw away game, but still. Curious whether there were recruits in attendance.

    I think it’s a combination of bad season, sending a message to the AD about staff changes and the weather. It was around 40 and drizzling most of the game. 

    I think this is the lowest morale has been in 40 years and attendance reflects that. I do think you’ll likely see a little life for the lsu game from the fans but most are just ready to quit this season and move on to the off-season. Honestly I’m only watching now because I do not have the strength to walk away. It’s a literal addiction at this point. I’m sure other fans can relate.
