How will the Texas A&M Aggies fare this season? What will their overall and Big 12 records be? Will they make a post-season tournament?
We'll answer all those questions, plus guess which teams they'll upset and which teams will upset them, after the Jump.
2011-2012 A&M Overall Projected Record:
Matt Patton: 21-9
Joe Loyd: 20-10
Nathan Kotisso: 27-3
Ellen Carnes: 20-10
Surprise game A&M will win:
MP: Kansas at home (I think that counts as a surprise).
JL: Think they can win in Columbia vs the Tigers.
NK: @ Baylor-This will be as good as an opener in conference play can be. It'll be tight throughout, but the Aggies prevail in this one.
EC: Either Arizona or St. John's in New York.
Surprise game A&M will lose:
MP: at Oklahoma State (to fall out of the conference race)
JL: I'll go against Matt and say they'll lose at home to Jayhawks
NK: @ Kansas-The Jayhawks aren't as good as they usually are, but playing in Allen Fieldhouse means they'll have enough vs A&M.
EC: At Texas. I think the Aggies might encounter more SEC-related hostility on the road than they expect.
2011-2012 A&M Big 12 Projected Record:
2011-2012 A&M Big 12 Projected Standing:
2011-2012 A&M Projected Postseason:
MP: They'll make the NCAA's and win one (maybe two) games.
JL: Same as Matt's prediction exactly
NK: NCAA Tournament berth; ousted in the Sweet 16.
EC: First round of the NCAAs.
