I had a lengthy post up and deleted it, but the brevity of it is the Rise & Fall of aggy in 2015 after seven game. From nowhere back to nowhere.
AP pre-season, unranked.
Game 1, beat #15 ASU, got ranked #16
Game 2, beat Ball State with half a hundred on them.. #17
Game 3, beat Nevada, up to #14
Game 4, over Ark at Jerry World.. #14
Game 5, win over visiting #24 Miss State... how about #9 !!
Please note: as of now, neither ASU or Miss State are ranked... nor is A&M... getting to that.
So, at 5-0, in Top 10 and living large. Big eyes, big dreams. #10 Alabama coming to town.
Off week. Aggie #9 about to host #10 Alabama. Game of The State... #GOTS
And, in that off week holding #9, in the AP, A&M got one first place vote.
If your blood is actually maroon, can you imagine how giddy that could make you.
Game 6, lose to Alabama. By some accounts, more than the score. 3 INT pick-6s by the 5-star starter, one INT by 5-star No 2. Drop to tie at #15 with Michigan.
Game 7, on the road loss to Ole Miss, putting up 3 points. Back to unranked where the season began. For "you kidding me," read the team stats and passing statistics for A&M on the game.
