The Texas A&M football team had a banner season during their inaugural year in the Southeastern Conference. The Aggies are going to have to avoid multiple pitfalls if they want to experience similar success during their second season in the SEC.
Texas A&M was expected to struggle on the field in 2012. The SEC plays a physical brand of football, and the Ags were deemed incapable of matching up in the trenches.
A&M had the best offensive line in the country in 2012 and a front seven that held opponents to 3.7 yards per rush. The Ags suffered significant losses to those units due to graduation and early defections into the NFL draft.
How they deal with those losses and various other obstacles will define the immediate future of the program. This is a look at multiple pitfalls that the Aggies may face in 2013.
