The Texas A&M Football team shocked the nation in 2012 by finishing 11-2 in its inaugural season in the Southeastern Conference. There are multiple obstacles preventing the Aggies from experiencing or surpassing that level of success in 2013.
The 2012 version of the Aggies finished 2012 ranked No. 5 in multiple polls. It experienced the serendipity of a strong senior class, limited injuries and a dynamic coaching staff coming together at the same time.
It is unlikely that the Ags will be able to replicate that kind of combination again. That means that if they want to exceed 11 wins in 2013 then they will have to overcome some of the obstacles that will face them during the season.
This is a look at the biggest obstacles facing the Ags in 2013.
