Texas A&M is now 3-4 on the season after its loss at South Carolina on Saturday.

It has been a meteoric fall for the Aggies, who began the season ranked 6th in the AP Top 25.

Certainly, that ranking wasn’t justified. But nobody believes that A&M is this bad, which is why Jimbo Fisher has been steadily under fire for the last several weeks.

And things don’t get much easier for the Aggies this week, as they play host to No. 15 Ole Miss on Saturday night.

Against the Gamecocks, it was a terrible start that doomed A&M, as it fell behind by a wide margin early in the game.

“Looking at the film, a lot of fight in our guys, but we put ourselves behind the 8-ball early. … It was nine-fifty-something on the clock and we were down 17-0,” said Fisher during his weekly media availability Monday. “Never been a part of that.”

Fisher was, however, proud of how his guys responded after getting behind early.

“(We) showed a lot of guts, a lot of pride, a lot of character coming back,” Fisher said. “Moved the football very well after that. .. Had great balance, throwing, passing. … Their fight, their heart, we’re right there. (I) believe in our kids, have a lot of faith in our players, have a lot of faith in what we’re doing. Just got to keep coaching them and we’ll get there.”

Fisher also made it clear that to this point in the season, the results have been unacceptable.

We’re not where we want to be,” he said. “No one’s happy. I promise you that.”
