Real curious. Do people actually read through Negan's comments? Whenever I see a long post with Caps I just know it's him and scroll down.
He had texas stuff removed weeks ago. And didn't he just finish his spring semester at Alabama? Heard he'll be enrolling in June. Addison's going to USC.
No they're not. And if Chase Lane is the starter at Z which is where he was practicing in spring, I'm going to lose it.
No surprise there. He also had the stupidest takes and "inside sources" when we were moving to SEC that never happened lol
Hez and Land missed most of 2021 but based on 2019 and 2020, they were alright. Not enough to provide offensive threat. Nowhere near Chapman's level. Moose still seems inconsistent but he lacks experience so getting him out there more may help him get better. Preston is a beat after catch but good lord he cannot catch a football. Brown has a small catch radius but like Preston can make plays with the ball in his hands. We've never had a player that can create separation, win a man to man, catch the ball, and be able to run once the ball is in the player's hands. I don't know if this is a developmental issue or just severe lack of talent in the players but whatever the reason, the lack of productivity in WRs is one of our key issues to this date. But I am hopefull Evan, Chris, and Noah along with future '23 WRs we're about to recruit will fix that. Hey Jimbo said it himself. There are plays he couldn't run because he just didn't have the guys that can.
Alright. I'll correct it to "serviceable". Our receiving corps is still horrendous though compared to the recruiting and the amount we're paying the receiver coach. Since Jimbo got here, name a single great receiver we had relied on. Hez hasn't shown much. Lane is very bad at creating separation. Moose has shown his moments more than the aforementioned two, but is still inconsistent. Chapman is the only guy I can say was reliable except that was based only on a single game. Ainias is the only overall injury free & pretty reliable receiver we have.
The typical "oh i've seen those type of guys" before you actually find out how worse they are. Don't say we didn't warn yoh.
Yeah people still seem to sleep on Marshall. I'm actually more excited to watch him than I am with Evan.
Some good points added here that debunks this article. Especially about how those players on the list had great veteran receivers. Unfortunately, A&M's not in the same situation. Most of our veterans just suck. Also, Connor goes about those receivers and then suddenly goes off the rail in bringing up Demas. You actually think Demas and Stewart are at the same level in terms of skill set? And I've never seen Jimbo talk highly of a Demas's work ethic, skill and character at the this point of time. Just terrible comparison all around.
Yep. Coop goes down and we'll have serious problems. Really wish we could've kept Perkins.
With the depth and talent stacked on defense, I see us getting better all around despite losing our 4 DLs. Durkin's going to take our defense up a notch. Looking forward to Tunmise and Turner wreaking havoc.
tu has no excuse either nor does LSU but it seems A&M's the only school getting hated for not finishing where they're supposed to.
You should actually look it up on your own before you make that comment lol... It's not that hard. LSU out recruited us in 2020 and 2021. In 2019, they ranked right below us. As far as total talent composite, LSU is #5, Florida #7, and A&M #8.
Like I said, we should be finishing with a better record than the last season. A double digit win season is a must. But you ask anyone if A&M's roster and coach is on the level of Georgia and Alabama, they're gonna laugh their ass off at you. You bring up one five star guy to prove your point. Really? Sure I know talent alone isn't the determining factor but compare 14 and 19 5*s to 5 5*s. You want to apply five stars disappearing to A&M as well right? and not just Alabama because that #1 player from three years ago is your only proof? My goodness. And you talk about A&M having everything they need. You want to look at Texas, LSU, and other SEC schools that invest as heavily as A&M does and you hold all of them on the same level as UGA and Bama? Take Texas for an example, they have as much $$$ as we do if not more and they have higher talent composite than A&M does (Florida, LSU, Clemson, tOSU all ahead right now). You're saying they all should be competing at the level of #1 and #2 school in CFB. You are ridiculous.
Did I direct Alabama and Georgia to be the ones jealous of our one #1 class out of the many times they've already finished at #1? No. You're trying to connect the wrong dots buddy. A&M has been recruiting at top 8 before the #1 class. Have they been recruiting at #1 and #2 for the prior four years? No. That's where the line is drawn. Talent alone does not win you games but when Alabama and Georgia are way ahead the race with having 14 and 19 5*s already, it's absurd to hold A&M to the same level. Did Georgia win the Natty with one #1 class? It's so simple yet you just want to find the narrative to bash A&M. Scared of a school not named Alabama or Georgia that finished with one #1 recruting class?
^This. People just look at the recruiting rank numbers and make false conclusions. Look at the number of 5*s difference between Alabama, Georgia vs A&M. Excluding '22 class Bama and Georgia has 3, 4x the number of 5*s compared to us. Even including '22, it's not like y'all chilled and did nothing. The gap is still there. Just on our way to closing it.
People really need to stop holding A&M to the same expectations they have for Bama and Georgia. Actually look up the talent composite and their recruiting history before you blurt out nonsense. Sure we should be doing better than our last year's record but telling us that we should be on their level after ONE #1 recruiting class? Really? At this point this kind of nonsense is just a projection of pure jealousy and instability.
Bro. You really want to compare 14 and 19 of Alabama and Georgia's total number of 5* to our total of 5 5*s? Sure those numbers will go up for us but it's not like Alabama and Georgia didn't recruit as they used to for 2022. They still recruited insanely well and they've been doing this consistently for more than how long A&M has been recruiting within top 10. Have some common sense.
You should actually look it up on your own before you make these comments. It's Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida, and then Texas A&M.
It's just the media setting this hype up and making flashy but poorly supported headlines that suggest A&M has all the reason to be where they are ranked. Easy to believe if you don't actually follow A&M football.
These preseason rankings every year the media sets up is a part of reason why people hate A&M. None of us besides the year after the 10-1 season thought A&M deserved to be in top 5. We still have an unproven QB in whoever ends up being the QB1. And the team we're bringing in is a young team. Fans that actually follow A&M football would disagree with these rankings.
Yep. This guy fits tu's culture. Can't wait to see him get pummeled against Saban.
I know what EKing is referring to. His throwing motion always did stand out to me being so awkward. I mean as long as he's accurate, it wouldn't bother me but that's not been the case really with all the interceptions he's thrown already with limited showing on field.
Noticed that in the spring game. His ball would always be place behind the receiver's back. I'm sure the wind played some factor
Could've headed to MLB this year too if he'd wanted right?
Everyone loves King for his speed providing more options but I was surprised at how well Max ran albeit it was a spring game so the secondaries weren't closing in with hostility. Max is probably less likely to get injured as well if a defender hits. With King? not so sure... He still looks so fragile.
