Just based on the one game I watched them play, against your Aggies. The Aggies looked like they had a terrible game, UK looked likethey were a terrible football team. Their quarterback was awful that day though. The fact that they haven't lost three games yet leads me to believe the toughest part of their schedule is yet to come.

Believe I said this of LSU a couple of weeks ago -- without statistical evidence. Either way, still have to keep winning.

The Horns are the only state team that still has a "realistic" shot at the CFP. Of course, I think they will still stumble somewhere along the way, although the schedule sets up favorably with WV and ISU at home. I also don't think they would beat OU in a rematch. I think it will also take help in the form of a loss from ND or Clemson to open a spot.

As for the Ags, BAS reminds us that the Aggies' season really starts next week. A 5-2 record at the bye is probablly where most Ags realistically hoped to be when the season started. With ranked @MSU, @Auburn and LSU remaining (in addition to OM and a cupcake at home), the "success" of this season is still very much up in the air.

I'm curious what my fellow Aggies (and anybody else with a legitimate opinion) would expect for the last 5 games? What is the minimum you need to see to continue to feel good about the "direction" of the program? What would you consider yet another "collapse?"

Welll they beat Florida in “The Swamp”, which I’m not sure they’ve ever done....they beat #22 MSU by three touchdowns. I agree, they have a couple tough games ahead with Georgia and Mizzu. Georgia being the big one.

They have 8 seniors on their starting defense and the #1 overall projected LB I’m the 2019 draft. They’re pretty salty, but lots of football left before they hand out the bowl game invites....we’ll see.

Realistically 3-2.....with losses to MSU and LSU. Either way, we’re winning on the recruiting front, just by having the name Jimbo knocking on the doors.

4-1/5-0 is a huge long shot with Mond at the helm.....still not sold on him improving.

I’d feel pretty good now. While the big play defense numbers are actually worse than 2017, that unit is significantly better and they’ve made big strides under the new staff.

A&M's defense has been way better than in many years past, especially way better than Sumlin, but their offense is to me still hit and miss. They should have rolled Kentucky and SC, but did not due to penalties and turnovers an not so good play by the secondary.
What I do like is their never quiet attitude and the fire that Fisher shows.
Time will tell on who has a good record at the end of the year, but A&M's schedule is not easy and Texas has some maybe tough teams left. some of the team that BOTH have played were way over ranked as I think both Texas and A&M are over ranked at this point in the season.
Bama is Bama and A&M should have beaten Clemson. TCU is not that good right now and OU has no defense. Losses ain't good anywhere, but if Sumlin would still have been around those losses to Bama and Clemson would have been way worse and I am not sure they would have beaten Arkansas or SC.
I do not Like TT nor Texas with a passion, but I will still buy rounds if Bob and I and I will have to add Smart in the mix if we can ever meet somewhere!

GO AGS!

Mizzou is a joke, Florida is Hit or Miss, Tennessee is a Hot Mess, Vandy is Well Vandy and South Carlolina is nothing to worry about.

Kentucky should finish second in the East with ease since they beat UF. Maybe they’ll knock off the dawgs as well.

I think this team is capable of winning all of them. Realistically, I think 3-2 is more likely. I'd be ecstatic if they can win their home games and split the two remaining on the road. Anything less than 3-2 would probably be disappointing, although winning the finale against LSU would lessen the sting.

I would have probably been OK with one loss. However, the way we have gone through the cupcakes so far has made it tough to not look ahead. It is still one game at a time. UT is next.

There is always room for one more. Since CNS is on the dotted line until a flexible 2025 it may be time to tell the contractor to get ready.

I’d be happy with a 3-2 finish in these last 5. I think we can go 4-1 and that would be a huge for the program. Fisher would be well above the target in year one. But we can’t go 4-1 without beating Miss St next week. Until further notice I don’t think we are ready to beat L$U.

UK has a very good chance to finish with only one more loss. I think they looked bad because the A&M run defense took away their main two threats with the front 7 and their play action passing game couldn't get going because of it. Teams that will have to commit safeties to stop their run game will not do so well.

I think A&M can win out but none of them, except UAB, will be a blowout either way. LSU fits in a different category, they have a ton of confidence and are playing a very similar style of heavy run, field position football with a strong defense to back it up. That will be a strength on strength game that will be interesting to watch and a lot could and probably will change between now and then.

Ultimately 3-2 would be very possible but I think 4-1 is more likely.

I semi agree with this. But, you are no different from the rest of them, A trained monkey beating a pot with a wooden spoon. Horns are better than I thought they would be, but without Sam, only winning 2 more games. Aggy is playing better defense under Jimbo, but we shall see, a decent passing offense will expose that secondary. Long ways until recruiting season is over, both schools are fairing very well.

There are a lot of knocks on Mond and I was surprised to see he was 25/37 for 350 yds . . Not as bad as I thought . . Just sloppy . .

I saw a tweet this morning that ranked the SEC QB's and it has Mond as the 2nd ranked. Our favorite QB, Touchdown Tommy Wilson from UK was last.

I have no idea who the guy was that ranking them, but a retweet brought it into my feed.

Yep I agree. I think Mond has played pretty darn good considering the amount of pass rush other teams have put on him. A lot of the ints were on the receivers.

9-3 would be a successful season in my books. 8-4 okay. Improve the red zone efficiency on offense and could possibly make it to at least 9-3. Otherwise, I see the remaining SEC games being close ones that could go either way.

Wilson definitely has his struggles on 3rd down passing but I don't think I would put him that low on the list given what his scheme asks him to do.

They only ask him to throw less than 20 times per game on average so by design he isn't going to put up very gaudy numbers to bump up his ratings.

His yards per attempt is 6.22 - Completion is 9.37
Mond's YPA is 8.41 YPC is 13.63
Tua is at 14.3 per attempt! and a Ridiculous 20 yards per completion


For comparison

Ehlinger YPA - 7.41, YPC -11.27
Murray YPA -13.06, YPC 18.37

I’m going off watching him play and the thoughts of my buddy who is a UK grad.

Stats are great but are skewed by scheme / matchups.

If both Texas and A&M go 3-2 they would both be great seasons and the recruiting battles will heat up.

What about Tech and TCU?

Texas can win em all. They have already proven they can win the tough, close games......even against a top 10 BLUE BLOOD.

I'm officially not an Aggie but am married to one and the Dad of another, we attend many Aggie home games and thoroughly enjoy taking rv to tailgate (will be in poor folk lot c14 for ole miss, swing buy if in the area ) but because I openly pull for the Horns (even while tailgating in Aggie attire) my wife and daughter have deemed that I will never officially be considered an Aggie...

I think 4-1 is very realistic, 5-0 is not out of reach. There will not be a talent deficiency against any of the 5 including LSU. I've been thoroughly impressed with Elko's defense, just have to minimize big plays. That and how well the O can score will determine the last 5, they have moved the ball against everyone sporadically (including Bama) but have not been able to finish drives, that becomes a mental thing that I'm sure Jimbo has overcome in the past.

As an old coach and observer, I would think as long as they play with the tenacity they have and the recruiting continues to be strong, I would be very pleased with the direction of the program.

5-2 for the Aggies is where we HOPED to be at this point of the season. With Sumlin we would be 4-3 at best and be lucky finish at .500. Jimbo is making a huge difference in his first year and if he can keep his commits together, is putting together a top 5 class for next year.
Texas is no doubt improving but needs Ehlinger on the field as he is a much better motivator than the coach. I am not sure that OK can bet Texas in rematch if Texas can get everyone healthy. They did not seem to have an answer for the big, fast wide outs.
Adios,

IMO Horns an Ags are both showing this year that if you are a top recruit in the state of Texas, you can go to either of these schools and have a chance to develop, compete at a high level (Horns are somewhat hampered by the b12 imo) and be in the hunt for the playoffs. I have not felt that way about either of them in several years, I really hate it when our best talent leaves the state.

I really hope OU loses a couple, I do not want Horns to have to play them again, hard to beat a good team twice.

I also believe that MSU is the swing game between 4-1 and 3-2. The defense is going to have to step up big time, as they have been for the most part, and Jimbo is going to have to convince Mond to play like every play like he's down 3 with a minute left. The young man only seems to get hot when the pressure is on.

My hopes in the preseason were that this might be the year to pull off a W on Thanksgiving weekend, not looking so good as Coach O seems to have put things together pretty well over there in BR.

Game day boys!! Just went wheels up heading towards the SD Pheasant Opener. Ill be driving across the prairie when the game starts. Hopefully there is cell service. I think we can beat a Stanford team in Tempe. They are not playing great ball and we are at home.

I think Aggie should be thrilled if they only drop one more, but still happy and content if they drop 2. LSU is gonna be a tough, but Auburn doesn't look that scary right now. MSU should be a good game, but I don't see Aggie losing to all 3. Just me 2 cents.

LH's ?? Sheesh, I don't even want to speculate right now. Should be favored here on out, but what does that mean at the end of a bad game day. IF they can continue to improve throughout the 2nd half of the season and manage to bring their A game, or if not their B+ game every Saturday, we CAN exceed all expectations. I'm not scared of playing OU again. Bring it!

Wouldn't be surprised if both teams drop a game their not suppose too.

Sirius XM just added a Big 12 network. I enjoy the Pac 12 channel and the ESPN U channel. Highly recommend it if you have considered Sirius in the past. Key is to call every 6 months and get their best price. Set the date on your calendar and call. Ends up being $11 a month and it works in your vehicle and with app on the phone.

I do as you say and I think I'm at $7.50/month right now.

Nice!! I got some high speed package including the app. It was the best price they had at the time and I have had Sirius for less than 2 years. Great for CFB season.

Open weekends for Texas for Bow Season and Gun Season. Nice.

This year we had 3 straight weekends of home games which made it alot to get to Austin back to back to back during dove season. The tough decision is to skip La Tech for the Dove Opener or be in Austin.
