Kevin Sumlin addresses must-win mentality at Texas A&M
Being a head coach in the SEC comes with a number of high expectations, and no one knows that better than Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin.
Sumlin has been on the hot seat on multiple occasions this season, and he continues to face criticism after a home loss to Mississippi State. The Aggies had reeled off five wins in six games since blowing a huge lead in the season opener to UCLA. The lone loss in that span was an eight-point defeat to No. 1 Alabama.
Unfortunately, the Aggies came out flat against Mississippi State and could never recover. The Bulldogs rolled to a 35-14 victory that brought the hot seat talk back to Sumlin.
Sumlin addressed the expectations associated with coaching A&M, and he said he understands that every game should be a must win for the Aggies.
