  • Why is the depth chart showing a 4-3 scheme?

    • I believe it is showing your 4-2-5 scheme, because the SPUR is actually a DB masquerading as a linebacker. The 3-4 they have discussed will move out one of your DTs and add the BOB, but I am an A&M fan just trying to study up on the competition.

      This will be an interesting game. This is probably the smallest team A&M has played since it joined the SEC outside of Vandy. I think USC would have matched up very well against last year’s A&M team, but the “profile” of this year’s team is so much bigger.

      • Lol you have to be kidding. We have a few smaller guys on defense but to say we are “small” is a false statement. Just saying watch out for our “small” linebackers. Not to mention we have the most massive offensive line in the conference.

        The only way I see A&M winning is if your offense puts up over 40. You guys will likely have the best offense in the SEC by the end of next year, but you aren’t even close to that yet. All the receivers are green (although extremely talented) and same goes for your QB. Playing your first game on the road in the place with the longest home winning streak is a monumental task. Especially when you have to face an offense that can keep a lead by running the ball down your throat.

  • I can’t wait til Thursday! I’ll be in the 2nd row!! COCKS!!!!
