Know the Opponent: Texas A&M (10-8, 2-5)

KenPom ranking: 64

Best win: vs. No. 50 Virginia Tech

Worst loss: at No. 93 Mississippi State

Texas A&M on Offense: The Aggies are a slow, yet efficient offense. Their 18 seconds per possession ranks 265th in the nation, but they are one of the best teams in the nation at making shots inside the arc. Nearly 60 percent of A&M's points come from 2-point shots, the 22nd most in the country. Texas A&M doesn't do much damage from 3, shooting just 33 percent. The three players that account for the largest percentages of shots when they're on the court are all at least 6-9. Tyler Davis leads the Aggies in scoring and can draw fouls at a high rate. 

Like Ole Miss, Texas A&M has struggled with turnovers. Both teams have about 30 percent of possession end with a turnover. A&M hasn't taken advantage of free throws this season, shooting 64 percent from the line. 

Texas A&M on Defense: It's very difficult to score inside the arc on the Aggies. A&M ranks sixth in the nation in opponents' shooting percentage on those shots. They send shots back at the 12th highest percentage in the nation. Teams often have to rely on hitting deep shots, which A&M has not defended well at times. The Aggies 3-point percentage ranks 226th in the nation.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
