How many times have we seen the Aggies lose games like the one on Saturday versus Louisiana Tech? Chase Holbrook called it exhausting and I would have to agree.
Chase and Chris Williams both stood up at the end of Saturday's game and were upset over the loss. It was another tough one in their careers, one's which have seen many.
I think that's what's tough about this team under Mumme. They have had many games where they were right there in the fourth quarter and ended up losing. It makes it tough to quantify. Are they a team that is far away from any real success or are they on the doorstep and just waiting to get over the hump? It seems like it is something we have asked for the past two seasons.
I can think of two games off the top of my head where they made the key plays down the stretch to win. Hosting UTEP last season and at Nevada this year. There have been at least nine in the past three years where they were right there in the fourth quarter and things did not work out for them. Is that the sign of an unlucky team, a bad team or one that is simply mentally weak? I think they are a team with talent but that they have mental breakdowns late. So, in my opinion, they are mentally weak.
They went up three on Saturday with just under 11:00 left in the contest. How many people thought they would lose? I thought they could win, but I braced myself for a loss. And when La. Tech hit that big pass play down the sideline for the go-ahead TD, I wasn't surprised. We have all seen it before. The team remains a tease.
