The Texas A&M A&M team isn’t heading into the 2022 season that many thought it would be. After all, preseason top-five plans often fall apart and miss bowl games entirely.
But that’s exactly what happened to Jimbo Fisher’s Aggies after an early-season 17-14 loss to Appalachian State at Kyle Field.
That loss, combined with a six-game losing streak, left A&M trailing 5-7. But after TCU’s performance this season, is there hope for Aggieland next season?
The Big 12’s Horned Frogs went 5-7 in 2021, then went on a 12-game winning streak in 2022 before losing to Kansas in the Big 12 title game and getting slobbered by Georgia in the national title game. .
CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli seems to think A&M could achieve something similar:
Listen, it’s hard to believe Aggies. I don’t know, but you can’t deny that this is a talented roster that doesn’t do well in 2022. I’ve never been in the “Texas A&M is playoff contender” crowd, but 5-7? With the talent at hand, this should be impossible.
Most of the talent is still there, and coach Jimbo Fisher may finally admit he needs a little help by bringing in Bobby Petrino as his offensive coordinator. Yes, there’s a risk that this situation will explode, but it’s also possible that all goes well and the Aggies eventually break through.
Worst first? Yep, that’s exactly what the miracle of the 2023 season will be, after the Aggies finished seventh in the seven-team SEC West.
Plus, A&M is losing a ton of talent to transfer portals in 2022 from what it calls “the greatest recruiting class ever.” But the roster is still full of talent, and most of the starters are staying in college towns.

is it possible? No. It’s unlikely we’ll see A&M in the 2023 College Football Playoff.
