Many people are starting to wonder aloud about head coach Kevin Sumlin. He seems like a good person, but for some reason he just cannot get his finger on the program as a whole. There are many experts thinking about loud that this is the year the wheels could come off of the entire team.

Texas A&M has had a problem with defense ever since they entered the league. However, their offense was always able to keep them in games.

After losing many highly rated quarterbacks to transfers, the Aggies now find themselves with a lot of issues to solve.

Anyone who has watched the SEC teams play football knows that defense is the name of the game. Over the long term, far too many teams try to outscore one another. To have sustained success, the defense is the key. This is why a lot of experts are predicting pain in the future for the Aggies.
