Texas A&M ranked #13 in preseason Coaches Poll

August 6, 2020

With every glimpse of normal a welcome sight in a college football offseason that has been anything but normal, USA Today published the Amway Coaches Poll Thursday morning. The Aggies rolled in at #13 in the preseason poll. 

Led by an experienced senior quarterback and a mix of returning starters and vaunted young talent on defense, many have anticipated a breakout season for Texas A&M in 2020. Prior to last week, the schedule fell favorably for Jimbo Fisher’s third season in Aggieland, as Clemson and Georgia rotated off. Those teams finished 2019 ranked #2 and #4.

The road likely became a bit tougher for the Aggies when the SEC announced it will play a 10-game, conference-only schedule as part of its effort to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Aggies will now add an additional two SEC opponents and are still awaiting an announcement from the conference about who they will play and when.

Texas A&M is one of six SEC teams that landed in the top 25, including three in the top 5. Alabama is ranked third, Georgia fourth, and LSU fifth. Florida and Auburn also made the preseason poll, ranked #8 and #11 respectively.

With as many OL, DL, and secondary as Auburn lost, I just don't see it.

Course, we still have overthrower, inexperienced receivers, and a so-so OL.
I know a lot about a little, and a little about a lot.

If played, this will be a season for all SEC fans to cherish and remember! Hope we also live up to and exceed this ranking at the end of the year!

No way LSU and UF finish ahead of us. LSU lost their star QB and a ton of of starters, and UF gets two SEC West teams added to their schedule (at least one loss). Auburn is about right where they should be.

Should be: Bama, UGA, TAMU, Aub, UF, LSU.

We will surprise many this season.

For program image, trend value, and a branding standpoint, it's obviously nice to be mentioned among the elite programs, but do preseason rankings actually matter in the grand scheme of things? If you play an SEC schedule and win, the final rankings and bowl game positioning will always speak for itself.

So preseason 4th in the SEC west and 6th in the SEC and 13th in the nation. Crazy.

I think auburn and LSU are to high both lost a lot but they will still be good.

These conference only schedules will help the lessor conferences. Not to difficult to go 9-1 or 10-0 this year in big 12 and ACC.

So we play 4 teams ranked higher than we are. In an imaginary world, the 13th best team in the country would finish 6-4.

We HAVE to over-perform.

While being the first poll of the season ... it's looking like it could very well be the last. So I'd like to congratulate the Clemson Tigers on their 2020 coaches poll national championship!!!

Now on to 2021.

the top 25 poll needs to become the top 15 poll
