Texas A&M Preview: Will ‘The Chief’ Change The D?

Texas A&M's 2014 was an interesting one. After slaughtering South Carolina on the road, their QB Kenny Hill trademarked his nickname to "Kenny Trill", and subsequently sucked. So much so he had to be replaced by Kyle Allen. The Aggies could have easily gone 7-6 instead of 8-5 --- with a two SEC wins -- if Arkansas hadn't choked at JerryWorld. This was a pretty ugly season, so...

Sumlin: Aggies have 'chip on their shoulder' this season

Sixth in the division. Unranked in both the Associated Press and coaches polls. That's the perception of Texas A&M heading into 2015, even with the skill positions loaded with talent and the defense expected to improve (perhaps significantly) under new coordinator John Chavis, the longtime overseer of LSU's perennially dominant units. And how does that sit with the Aggies? Not...

As a result, Texas A&M isn’t even ranked to start the season. Sure enough, in a story posted on College Spun, Sumlin has stated that the Aggies are entering 2015 with “a chip on their shoulder.” "Quite frankly...
