Early thoughts on Texas A&M
« on: December 05, 2016, 09:58:58 AM »
The first thing that pops out to me is that KSU will be (by far) the most physical team that Texas A&M has faced this year. 

On offense, the combination of Barnes and Jones are better running backs than they have faced in probably a couple of years, and Jesse will add the mobile dimension they don't get in the pass happy SEC.  On the other hand their DE Milo Garnett is a handful and might be the next DE picked in the draft after Willis.  Our vertical passing game will be limited, I am not sure we will see the 25 yd routes and completions we've been used to this year.

KSU will also likely be the best defense they will face all year as well.  While the standard bend-but-don't-break defenses of the SEC could be exploited by Trevor Knight (who ironically was a bust at OU), I believe the aggressive man to man we play will confuse them and we should hopefully be able to push around their finesse WRs. I am a bit concerned about the mobility of Knight, in the couple of games we lost it was because our contain wasn't very good.

I will do some more tape watching in the coming weeks and crunch the numbers, but this is a good match up for us I think.  Early thoughts:

KSU   45
aTM   10

Agreed.  I think they will not have seen coaching on the level of the Cats, outside of Bama.  Sec coaches generally get fired every year or pretty close.

I've made thousands of dollars betting off Chingon's predictions, thanks for the free tip again!

Thanks for the run down Chings. I haven't been able to get much information on atm this year as they seem to be out of the media's eye for whatever reason. I didn't even know they had big 12 washout trevor knight,very interesting information.

Trevor Knight has thrown more interceptions against K-State than touchdowns. That's a stat that I believe to be accurate but refuse to investigate. Big win for KSU

SEC stands for SECond rate offenses.  Cats continue their sweep of Tex-sux.

Did anyone see that ATM v. LSU score?   :sdeek:
