1. NEW MEXICO STATE WIN TOTAL PREDICTION: WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
There’s experience and upside in place to be a whole lot better than the 2018 3-9 version, but is there enough talent to overcome to come close to six wins and bowl eligibility?
The problem isn’t just that the Aggies have to improve; they have to be night-and-day better at a whole lot of things like kick an punt coverage. Punting. Fourth down stops. That goes along with needing a whole lot more from the run defense, pass protection, downfield pass plays …
That’s where the experience needs to kick in.
Set The Regular Season Win Total At … 4
Just assume ugly losses against Washington State, Alabama, and Ole Miss on the road, and there will be issues at home against San Diego State and Fresno State. That’s five losses without blinking.
Winning at both Central Michigan and Georgia Southern will be a problem, and beating Liberty twice won’t be easy.
There’s a trip to New Mexico, and ….
The Aggies are running out of likely wins.
Incarnate Word isn’t a sure thing, but it’s a home game. So is the first of two dates against Liberty and the date with UTEP.
With the improvements, hope for four wins, but only if all of those little things improve.
