Social media reacts to Kellen Mond showing off his running in Texas A&M's win over Oklahoma State
Texas A&M entered the Texas Bowl with only one scholarship running back. Junior QB Kellen Mond stepped up, leading all Aggies ball-carriers with 117 rushing yards in the 24-21 win over Oklahoma State in Houston. It was only the second time in Mond’s career he has rushed for over 100 yards in a game.
Mond has been playing for three seasons now, but social media remains divided as ever on the veteran starting quarterback. It was Mond’s rushing, particularly the 67-yard touchdown run, that stood out to most observers (fans and media members both). As you’ll see below, the comparisons for Mond range from Lamar Jackson to Taysom Hill to Randall Cunningham.
Here’s a sample of what social media was saying after Friday’s game:

You can’t stop Kellen Mond you can only hope to contain him.

Apparently Kellen Mond was Randall Cunningham all along, and now he has been freed.

Kellen Mond could have been doing this the last 2 years. Don’t take away a great attribute trying to prove he can throw.

You see Kellen Mond running away from these Big 12 DB’s, he never does that in his SEC games. I think he’d shine in any other conference where the SEC is that much more of a challenge he just can’t take his team all the way over the top.
