"So basically, we're talking about degrees here. Is A&M going to be good? Absolutely. Just probably not 'Top Five' or 'Top Ten' good. And expecting that level of play from a group whose four-year F/+ rank is 56th (behind programs like Wake Forest, Rutgers and N.C. State) is a bit unfair. A&M has made significant strides since the incredible lows of Mike Sherman's first year (2008), but they most likely aren't an elite team just yet, nor did they play like it even late last fall."
