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...

Chavis talks Texas A&M defense, makes bold claim

Texas A&M brought in longtime LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis this offseason in an effort to fix what's best the worst defense in the SEC for the past two years. Chavis will earn a total of $4.65 million over the next three years as one of the highest-paid assistants in the country, but the Aggies believe he'll be worth it after giving up 509.5 yards per game in SEC play...

2017 No. 1 Dual-Threat QB Tate Martell Commits To Texas A&M

The Texas A&M Aggies broke into the Southeastern Conference very loudly a couple of years ago. With the help of Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans, the Aggies cemented themselves as a threat in the SEC. Since Manziel left, though, the Aggies have been looking for an answer at quarterback. The answer appears to be freshman Kyler Murray, a four-star quarterback who committed to Texas...

Texas A&M Football: You Better Think Twice Before Trying To Prank Kevin Sumlin At His House

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin doesn’t suffer fools. Back in January, Sumlin publicly fired his pool boy after he tweeted about a conversation the Aggies coach had with LSU-turned-A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis. On Friday, a local fan attempted to play “ding dong ditch” at Sumlin’s house, if he could garner enough retweets.  100 RT’s and I’ll ding dong...
