Texas A&M put up a lot of points in their time under Kevin Sumlin, but as Jimbo Fisher begins his tenure in Aggieland, he is putting an emphasis on when and where those points are scored.
A&M ranked 53rd in the country in red zone offense a season ago, while ranking 121st in the red zone on defense. As Spring practice rolls on for the Aggies, Fisher is harping on situational football and being their best when the game hangs in the balance.
“You’ve got to get them to think those situations, and try to steal a ballgame and steal momentum,” Fisher said. “Third-down, in the red zone, — How do the teams react, what chances do they take, it’s a whole different mindset on offense and defense and just getting guys in those situations as much as you can, to make them aware of what their surroundings are and what’s trying to be accomplished.”
