The Texas A&M football team started Spring Practice on Saturday, March 2. Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has multiple areas of concern on his team that needs to be addressed during the 15-practice sessions.
The Aggies are trying to improve on their 11-2 record in 2012. They have a very strong nucleus returning that will allow them to compete for Southeastern Conference and BCS championships in 2013.
The Ags return six starters on each side of the ball. They suffered major personnel losses at wide receiver and linebacker. The team will receive a major influx of talent in the fall when a top-10 ranked recruiting class arrives on campus.
Until then the coaches will have to concentrate on rebuilding their defensive front seven, and finding a solid group of receivers to catch passes from rising sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel.
This is a look at Sumlin's biggest worries as he heads into Spring Practice.
