Jimbo Fisher might just find himself on the hot seat this season if he doesn’t turn Texas A&M football right back around and into one of the best teams in the SEC.
A year ago, the Aggies had hopes of contending for a national title after landing the best recruiting class ever and they didn’t even make a bowl game. That disappointment nearly cost the head coach his job but he’s back for at least one more year.
Will Fisher be able to retain his job in 2023? It depends on how the Aggies fare.
This season-opening matchup is a no-brainer. New Mexico isn’t very good and Texas A&M is so talented that it won’t need much of a gameplan to just steamroll the Lobos at home.
No, no one will be impressed by the 40-point win, but it’ll be a nice way to build confidence early on.
Prediction: Win (1-0)
A road game against Miami sounds a lot scarier on paper than it actually is. The Hurricanes have struggled to have home-field advantage for years because the campus is so far away from the stadium and that means that Texas A&M should have no problem taking care of them here.
Mario Cristobal was hired to turn the program back into a winner but year one is a disaster and I have a feeling year two may not be much better. He’s stockpiling talent, but can he coach it?
Prediction: Win (2-0)
