This was an ugly win for A&M but all the credit to CU. I do think if king doeantngo down A&M finds its offense sooner and maybe covers because of how good the defense played, but still a gritty win none the less. You'll have those. 

Calzada has a LONG way to go. He had time today for the most part but missed a lot of throws. He's throwing heat the whole time and it was clear the WRs are not use to his ball as they dropped many they had hands on but calzada simply had so much on it they couldn't bring it down. That happens a lot when you miss high like calzada tends to do. 

I'll take the ugly win but there's a long way to go for this team if they plan on winning 10+. The team I saw today loses to Bama and Ole Miss handily while also likely dropping a game vs Auburn or LSU. Defense buckled down late but Ole Miss will score in bunches playing like they did first half. 

I think you’ll beat LSU. They’re not a good team.

New Mexico 

Arkansas

Mississippi State

New Mexico is a great game to get Calzada up to speed and build his confidence up. Dude has to go from Nolan Ryan to Greg Maddux. Lay off the fastball and mix in some change ups.

We’ve had some close games with Arkansas over the last several years. There’s always been a break or two needed to distance ourselves from them. The feelings been sooner or later the ball will bounce the Hawgs way. This could be that game if Calzada and the offense sputters.

Its Mike Leach and Mississippi State. Who the heck knows? The series is 5-4 since we joined the SEC.

I think Zach will settle down some next week. Its tough coming in cold off the bench on the road. Especially when you aren't getting favorable numbers in the box and are forced to throw more than you'd like to see. 

Year 4 and Jimbo still at this moment has the same problem that has held his offense back since year 1. A&M HAS to be able to stretch the field. There were open WRs last night that Zach just didn't see. But if you can't create some big plays to get that 7th or 8th guy out of the box you're not going to be effective with a run based offense. Jimbo is either going to have to learn to lean on the running game even running into loaded boxes or he's going to have to get the passing game in gear to free up some room. But yesterday Colorado just gave the entire country the blueprint to beat A&M and this point nobody is going to respect Calzada or the WRs until they actually do something.

Yeah, I'm pretty Jimbo gameplanned a certain kind of attack going in against Colorado, and it seemed like he was unwilling to go away from it despite losing his starter. That said, I agree that gameplanning for Calzada's strenghts (and away from his weaknesses) combined with giving him a week of QB1 reps will help the Aggie offense significantly. 

I think A&M still has an outside shot at the conference. Granted, you just don't replace a Haynes King (ask any Lobo fan), but this ain't exactly Jimbo's first rodeo. I bet we see a return to a more run-first grind it out offense against New Mexico, and I think Calzada will settle down with increased reps. 

Of course, in the event that King's injury turns out to be not as severe as feared, then let's crank that hype machine right back up. :woot:

The defense can keep them in any game. They are getting their starting DT back next week which should help with run fits and they get the other starting corner back as well. Both of those guys absences have been felt so the defense should continue to improve. 

This is a very high ceiling team but they also have a lower floor than originally thought. I could easily see this team challenging everyone else including bama if the defense sures up their run fits. But I could also see ole miss being a terrible mismatch and beating us along with a bama whipping and a sneaky arkansas or auburn loss as well. That arkansas game in two weeks will tell a lot about where these team stands.

Arkansas may pound away on A&M too...doesn't seem that A&M can score much

They might. I don't expect A&M to look like they did saturday the rest of the year though. They will gameplan around Calzada better going forward. 

 

I also think A&Ms defense is much better than Texas' though. Specifically front 7. I guess we will find out next week.

No, not freaking out. Just trying to keep unverified rumors to a minimum. 

Plus, I care about the kid. He's practically family.

If we can get Saban back from the Covid in like two days, we can get King back by October 9th. Maybe. Possibly. 

😂 I think sadly its Calzadas show moving forward unless he's awful and by then we have 2-3 losses anyway. 

 

Either way this might be weigmans team in 2022 if neither of these guys can cement themselves. That kid might be too good to keep off the field.

if it was Alabama, they would have every doctor in Alabama and the Southeastern states involved in that surgery to reform that ankle bionic-style and he'd be ready and better than ever in two weeks.

Let's be real here.... 

If this was bama the game would just be swapped with the non conference November game to make sure they were full strength 😂

The more you watch Weigman play the more impressed you get with him. Kid has the arm and touch. Athletic too boot. I’m with you. ‘22 could be a camp battle for the job. Especially with Weigman early enrolling.

I think you'll see him throw it all over the field saturday. They are going to want him reps so they can get timing down.

Yea.... I think A&Ms defense is capable of playing with anyone and the running game has some explosive weapons, I just don't know if Calzada has it between the ears to really accomplish what I think this team is capable of. Going to need to see some real growth over the next few weeks. 

The arkansas game will be a good measuring stick. They are going to test the defense and calzada will have to play better. We will know in two weeks how this season is going to go from here on out IMO.
