No one won our Predict the Score contest this week. Several did bet on Ole Miss, but they went over. When we posted our Predict the Score blog a couple of days ago, we wrote; “That’s a lot of talent competing for a game they both need to win. It will be a high-scoring contest, but if the Aggies are for real, this is when they prove it.” So we were right about both teams needing to win. And we were right about the talent on the field. We, and most of the pundits, however, were wrong about predicting a lot of scoring by both offenses, because the high-powered offense of the Aggies simply disappeared.
By game’s end, Kyle Allen was trending nationally on Twitter, not in a good way, and Texas A&M had fallen out of the top 25, leaving just about everyone with emotions ranging from curious to furious. So although Ole Miss won the game and obviously proved that they are “for real,” the Aggies need to figure out who they are and what’s going on with their offense, especially at quarterback, but also with their offensive line, receivers, running game and most definitely with their play-calling, coaching staff and decision-making . . . all the way to the top . With almost an embarrassment of riches on the Aggie roster, no Aggie fan should have to feel embarrassed.
The Texas Poker Store staff hopes the Aggies get it together in time to face the South Carolina Gamecocks next Saturday at Kyle Field. We’ll post our next “Predict the Score” blog in the next few days, so keep tuned in and may the best predictor win.
