Sumlin: Don't compare this year's team to last season's team

Once again Texas A&M is off to a 5-0 start. Last season, the Aggies would drop its next three games after the same fast start.  With the SEC schedule heating up, will that happen again? Not according to head coach Kevin Sumlin.  “Everybody is trying to compare this season to last season,” Sumlin said Tuesday. “It’s two different teams.” The Aggies coach is right....

Daeshon Hall: More than a Sidekick to Myles Garrett on Texas A&M Defense

At the start of the season, virtually every SEC team expected sophomore defensive linesman Myles Garrett to build off his outstanding freshman debut as the main force of an otherwise-lackluster Texas A&M defense. What they probably did not expect was a second Aggies defensive linesman to take the pressure off Garrett and prove his worth as a defensive stalwart in his own right...

Texas A&M starts another season with a win, but from a different angle

The first Saturday of the 2015 FBS college football season was a day of repetition in certain ways. Earlier in the day, in Atlanta, an SEC West team in search of improved defensive identity under a new coordinator — playing in a neutral-site NFL stadium against a Power 5 non-conference opponent coached by someone who is extremely football-smart but has a less-than-rosy reputation...

Texas A&M recaps offseason in season 2 of ‘The Pulse’

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...

Kevin Sumlin says Aggies have ‘a chip on their shoulder’

Texas A&M Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin and his team enjoyed a 5-o start to the 2014 season, but then the wheels fell off as the squad only went 3-5 down the stretch. 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...
