For me, maybe the best thing about the A&M game was that, not only did the team play much better, but the staff also coached their best game. You only have to look at the last 4 recruiting classes and see the huge talent difference (based on ratings) between the Hogs and A&M. Even though we narrowly lost, CCM and staff out-coached Jimbo and staff.
CCM and staff did not look “in over their heads” in this game. It was a definite eye-opener for me.
Now, the team and the staff have to continue improving during the next 2 weeks and take the next step to a road SEC win. Right now I’m jogging right behind the CCM wagon, ready to board. If however, we pull another SJS against KY, I’ll slow down to a walk and wait until we get that “have to have” SEC win.
