The Texas A&M football team had an extremely porous defense in 2013 because the Aggies did not have the requisite size and talent to compete with the top teams in the SEC.
The easiest thing to do as a college football fan is to blame the coach when your team fails. There are Aggie fans out there who think that Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mark Snyder should be replaced after the poor showing from the defense in 2013.
