I think Spiller did good for a true freshman. Put up 946 yards. Oline will have to improve (can't get worse). IMO Mond is the biggest question for this season. I see a 8 & 4 season, possibly 9 & 3. I'm not excited about this season, I'll get excited when Mond is no longer the starting QB.

Defense.
Anias will go to RB. W Demas at wideout or slot it should open up running game some. Again, need better qb.
O line will be improved some. We need ALOT. But all are returning. And a year smarter and stronger hopefully. Hopefully!!

I am not a mond fan. But who else in the sec has a PROVEN better QB? Trask or whatever from UF, nix? Maybe bama but he only played a few games. And they donít need a qb to win.

I'd say 9-3 to 8-4. That's not a bad season.

The Oline was a bigger problem than Mond. Mond showed he can play at a high level against LSU and Clemson 2 years ago. I would say last year he lost his confidence mostly due to horrible offense line play especially at the start of the season. Weren't they one of the most sacked teams in SEC?

Ellinger was having some rough games last year as well when Texas's o-line was getting beat.

I bet he does well next year if given consistent protection and they utilize his legs more.

Who would not be excited about prospects for next season the day following the last signing day. If youíre not looking forward to opening kickoff you might be a soccer fan.

My favorite Joe Namath quote was when he was getting ready to leave the Batchelors III at 2 a.m. with girl that was not nearly pushing a 10. His buddy asked him, you're not taking her home are you? Joe looked back at him and said, you don't think Miss America is getting ready to walk in, do you?

Per most preseason publications in 2019 Mond, coming off somewhat of a breakout (if not inconsistent) sophomore season, was ranked 2-3 spots ahead of Burrow, coming off an average-to-inconsistent first season in Baton Rouge. Debatably, Mond was probably considered to have a higher upside at the time. Of course, who would have predicted that Burrow would have an all-time great QB senior season that he had - even from the most die-hard of Tiger fans?

I'm not saying Mond is capable of that kind of season, but he has shown to be a capable SEC QB. I think most of his drop off last season is attributable to no help from the OL (in the pass or run game) or his receivers, which over the long term led to a loss of confidence and probably some normally uncharacteristic mistakes. Either way, I think Jimbo is committed to riding with Mond unless things go completely off the rails for him early.

The question remains how much the OL can improve (there is some young talent that can hopefully be developed quickly) and how much they can get from the RB position to alleviate some of the pressure on the QB - no matter who the QB is. (Hopefully receiver/TE will be a position of offensive strength next season.)

Of course, there is a lot to be optimistic about defensively. There is experienced talent and good depth at most positions on defense.

Mond is solid QB. Do I think he is a great QB, NO. I just think he is a solid QB. But when the defense is in your face constantly because your O-Line sucks it is hard to have any confidence and play well. Burrows wouldn't have looked half as good as he did without the team he had around him. His receivers were catching passes a lot of other receivers couldn't. Not taking anything away from him because he played lights out all year and is a top notch QB.

So why arenít they getting him out of the pocket, quick passes, designed runs i mean he is a dual threat no? I watched the dude with a clean pocket over throw guys constantly.... so either mond isnít good or the coaches are failing him trying to make him something heís not

Mond takes way too long to make a decision in the pocket.

Burrow knew how to make a snap decision.

Exactly if he canít process the def and get rid of the ball on a 3 step drop then either the coaches need to simplify an offense for him or replace him...

I think with a serviceable OL Mond will show improvement. He regressed last year due to the ineffectiveness of the OL. Sure he missed passes he should have made that was frustrating as hell. But the majority of time the play didn't have a chance to develop. I think coaching bears some blame as well. I am not convinced we couldn't be more creative with Mond and get him in space more. Having a WR that can take the top off a defense (Demas) will be a huge plus. While I would like to see someone push for the starting QB job, I find it highly unlikely someone will get the nod over Mond. Jimbo loves him some Mond. I'm gonna remain optimistic and trust Jimbo to make the right decision on what's best for the program. I think they go 9-3.

DDF, it really could be a bunch of things. In Monds case I think its all of them. Coaching, O-Line may be porous, lack of understanding on his part, confidence or lack of it. He has the talent, no doubt. Some qbs are head cases.

It would be great if we all had a senior QB like Big **** Joe. But we don't and you all don't either now. Appears to be a lot of question marks at the QB position in the SEC for this upcoming season. Should be fun to watch it unfold.

This isnít about joe.... youíre right weíll have a inexperienced qb, but the whole point Iím asking is whoís fault is it for his lack of growth. Are Ags memory that short i can go back to almost every week last year where multiple Ags were saying he sucked... now itís the OL?!

I think the majority say he sucks. I saw parts of some games where he looked solid. The two big games I actually watched most of he was a deer In the headlights.

For the record, I have never said Mond sucks. I have always blamed the O-Line. But I would think it is the coaching schemes for him as well. He seems to play better when he is mobile.

Mond should be the man in the SEC this year. I was actually taking up for the kid. He catches a lot of grief that a 21 year old shouldnt have to catch.
To lead A&M to winning records with the poor OL play, I actually thought he done well.


I will repeat it again, with the things he has to endure, Im sure it gets in his head. Very few can handle that pressure.

Some blamed him and some blamed the o-line. Nothing has changed. They both need to improve over the offseason. The coaches should of called more qb runs. Against Clemson, Mond was gimped up so maybe that had something to do with not running him as much? LSU has 1.5 years of good qb play?

I agree the one game i saw him actually use his legs they seemed to move the ball much better

What about Calzada? Last year after the spring game, he was supposed to be the real deal?

Mond would probably be pretty good in a modern spread offense.

This is what I think. Mond seems to be at his best in uptempo for what I have seen. He doesnít have time to think, just play and his legs become a big advantage for him. I do think some of Mondís struggles are between his ears and uptempo helps solve that.

With that being said, will Jimbo change his antiquated ways to help Mond and keep up in the SEC West? With the coaching changes to the SEC West, A&M is going to have to score a lot of points to win games.

He may be that guy, but I doubt he gets a shot this year. Jimbo loves Mond. Look heís a great kid and a role model on campus. He just needs to start producing.

If Jimbo thinks Calzada is better than Mond, he will get the snaps. I doubt at this point that Calzada would be an upgrade. Arm strength aside, there isn't any reason to think he would be more effective in that offense than Mond at this point. He needs the practice reps to get ready before the QB battle in 2021.

returning production on A&M's Schedule

(32) South Carolina
(35) Ole Miss
(58) Arkansas
(71) Vanderbilt
(78) Auburn
(93) Fresno State
(109) Miss State
(114) Colorado
(120) North Texas
(126) LSU
(127) Alabama

Abilene Christian is FCS, so not included above.

The Aggies are certainly catching Auburn, LSU, and Alabama about as good as they can, though both LSU and Bama are at the end of the season so that will negate much of that benefit. SC, Ole Miss, and Arkansas will probably be more sporty than they have been in year's past. At Starkville and at SC will probably determine A&M's success for next year.

Well, BAMA didn’t even make El General’s list. We’ve got no shot! In spite of this I am optimistic. All recruits coming in will be freshman experience wise and have to among other things win their spot, accept Coaching and on and on. Need to have injury luck and schedule luck. Good luck to everyone on the injury front.

Bama isn't on the Texas schedule yet, luckily for y'all.
