Battle of the coaches trying to save their job.

Do we win for the first time in 6 years or no?

It's entirely possible.  They looked very bad against Nicholls.

For whatever reason Sumlin's got Bielema's number.  I see us having another lousy second half in Jerry World and losing by a field goal (either made by A&M or missed by us).

I actually do think it is possible we win this game. But I don't feel comfortable saying one way or another.

What you have are two teams reeling badly. One factor is Sumlins seat is hotter. Unlike here, they have actual winning expectations at A&M...the trustee calling him out on social media was interesting. Bielema knows he's most likely safe this year with the buyout, so looking at short term Sumlin is the one REALLY coaching for his job here.

If they lose to us does he make it through Sunday still the A&M coach? I say no. I think A&M/Sumlin will have the edge on overall motivation to win. Will that make enough difference to beat us? Guess we will see...they suck something terrible right now, especially on offense. I could see our defense all but shut them down.

I picked no. They have a really good running back and TCU moved the ball pretty well when running.

Unless they turn the position over to Hubenak and he flourishes they have no QB.  When you have no QB you have no offense and you're trying to win 10-7 games or get a defensive score or two to get to 17 or maybe 20.  Mond is abysmal.  Sumlin lost the UCLA game because he insisted on playing him exclusively when Starkel went out with his injury.

This is by far the worst A&M team we will have faced since the series resumed in 2009.

All that is to say that the jury is out.  I'd say it is a coin flip game.

I can see both defenses taking away the run from each other. Low scoring affair until the 4th Quarter when our defense is gassed.

I hope I'm wrong, but feel we'll lose this

14-10

A&M is very physical. They haven't played like it except for the first 3 qtrs against UCLA. I think they will push our O line around and put pressure on AA. Same result as TCU.

I have to go with this.  A&M sucking doesn't mean that much because they always seem to play their best against us every season.  Look great against Arkansas, then suck ass every week after.

We're balanced on offense.  We just have to run more to set up the pass only when needed.  I think we could have two of the better backs in the SEC.

It could get ugly.   One team will likely have a 2nd half meltdown.     Both teams have had their share of that.    But the Aggies will likely rule this day.    Sumlin will be gone if he loses.

Not much faith in the offensive line, Allen's demeanor when things goes bad, play calling and overall attitude of the team which is why I voted NO.   Anything can happen but If we do win I think the defense will be the reason.

The 2009 team we destroyed was worse than this year's team.  Williams the running back and Christian Kirk are as good as we will see all year.

I believe that we will.  I think Sumlin's team is in even more disarray than ours.  I also think it's the only SEC game we should win, but there are a couple of could wins.  If we lose to that dumpster fire, he ain't surviving much longer.

They play Louisiana Lafayette on Saturday.  LLU can score some points and Texas A&M can't.  Might get interesting. 

Until we finally beat Texas A&M, I will never assume that we will.  It makes me feel foolish to tell anyone that Arkansas can go down to Jerrys World and get a victory.

Whenever our fans become certain a coach and team will win and head for a national championship, we lose. Whenever our fans are certain a coach and team are inept, headed for an all-defeated season and the hated coach will be run out of town on rails, we beat somebody and it spoils our plans.

I voted we win, just because nothing ever goes according to plan when your plan involves the Hogs.

This will be the worse A&M team that we have faced this decade, and we have a bye week prior to the game.  We need to win this game, the aggies will be our easiest SEC matchup until Black Friday.

Texas A&M is pretty awful this year.

My prediction is Arkansas wins, and Hogville celebrates -- and people come out of the woodwork to blast the CBB critics .... only to be followed by a South Carolina loss, so we repeat the cycle.

TCU is a much better team than A&M and the Hogs should have beaten the Horned Frogs.

If the Hogs can improve the passing game to where A&M has to respect it and not load the box, I believe a Hog win in Arlington is a good possibility.

Bielema hasn't figured out how to beat them yet, doubt seriously he is going to suddenly figure it out. I look for another game we have a chance to win yet figure out a way to lose just furthering our spiral.

Most insulting thing a Hog fan can hear is "The A&M game is Bielema's biggest and he knows it"

What does that mean? Does it mean he will try harder? Does it mean he will concentrate more?
He should be fired if he does anything different for A&M than he did for TCU. Why say the Aggies game is more important than TCU? 
Does it mean he could have done more to beat TCU than he did?
