LSU football: Brian Kelly wary of Aggies in role-reversal matchup

by Les East
Nov 23, 2022


LSU is where Texas A&M was expected to be.

And Texas A&M – at best – is where LSU might have been.

No team in the country has exceeded preseason expectations more than the No. 5 Tigers and no team in the country has fallen shorter of preseason expectations than the fading Aggies.

LSU (9-2 overall, 6-1 SEC), expected to begin a multiyear rebuilding project in coach Brian Kelly’s first season, sees its Saturday game at A&M as an opportunity to sharpen its edge going into its SEC Championship game appearance against No. 1 Georgia a week later.

An impressive performance would enhance the Tigers’ prospects for a spot in the college football playoffs.

The Aggies (4-7, 1-6) see Saturday’s game as their bowl game because it’s the end of their season and an opportunity to add a signature victory to an otherwise dismal record.

Kelly knows that makes for a dangerous opponent. The Aggies were No. 6 in the AP preseason poll because it was thought they had the talent to compete for the SEC West title....

Saying LSU was gonna be at 4 wins this year is a pretty big stretch. Only thing that's true is Aggie playing the spoiler role.

Wonder if some of the posters here will call Kelly a pussy over his concerns…..as they’ve done every LSU fan who has said this game is gonna be tough?

They all have said the coach and team had better be concerned. Fans not so much. I will enjoy the game.

Agreed. I would've been greatly disappointed in a season that even remotely resembled what A$M has had this year. Kelly and staff are too good at what they do to fail at the level Jimbo has. Even with a re-built roster.

I think his point is that before the year you would have figured lsu would be more likely to be where A&M is.

A lot here said 6 wins.

Absolutely, I mean imagine what could happen if fans overlook the game!

You can’t be this stupid?

Fans have been posting about how this game could be tough. They were called giant pussies.

Now Kelly warns the game could be tough. I’m waiting on those same posters to call Kelly a giant pussy.

BTW… you sound like a giant pussy. Is that how it works?
