I guess making an expanded list is one way to make sure a team doesn’t feel left out.
Bleacher Report ranked all 128 college football teams (D-I) into our favorite type of ranking: a Power Ranking. Texas A&M comes in at No. 25 on this particular list. Of course power rankings are usually affected by wins and losses but since no one has really played any games, we’re willing to accept their reasoning for the rankings.
BR notes Kyle Allen righting the wrongs of the 2014 Aggies when he took over late in the season as a reason for optimism, but the Aggies generous defense as reason for concern:
Freshman quarterback Kyle Allen mostly righted the ship when he took over, and he’s in charge of the explosive offense on a full-time basis for 2015.
Allen has an unending supply of receivers to work, but success for A&M will hinge on its defense being able to make stops. Last year the Aggies allowed 400-plus yards in nine of 13 games, yielding more than 500 on four occasions.
Not too much difference from what we’ve all been saying. Still, 25 is a nice spot to land, especially in a list that includes 127 other teams.
