Texas A&M Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin and his team enjoyed a 5-o start to the 2014 season, but then the wheels fell off as the squad only went 3-5 down the stretch. As a result, Texas A&M isn’t even ranked to start the season.
Sure enough, in a story posted on College Spun, Sumlin has stated that the Aggies are entering 2015 with “a chip on their shoulder.”
"Quite frankly, they've got a little bit of a chip on their shoulder, based on what people are saying." – Kevin Sumlin on 2015 Aggies

This certainly isn’t a surprise, as Texas A&M stumbled to the end of what began as a promising season, largely in part due to inconsistent play on both sides of the ball. Moreover, though the Aggies are 28-11 (13-11 SEC) in three years under Sumlin and are 3-0 in bowl play under him, the team’s record has gotten worse in each of those three seasons, though much of that can be blamed on key players leaving for the NFL.
Needless to say, with Texas A&M opening the season against Arizona State in Houston on Saturday, fans should expect an angry Aggies team to come out guns blazing.
