Thirteen voters have A&M ranked from 15th to 20th, but I’m among 36 who didn’t vote for the Aggies.

I don’t think respectable scores against two good teams equals a Top 25 resume. A&M has victories over a pair of FBS teams that ranks 104th (Arkansas) and 111th (Texas State) among 130 teams. A&M's other easy victory was over FCS member Lamar. I think any voter who watched all 60 minutes against Auburn and Arkansas would have a tough time voting for A&M.

It’ll be a moot point in two weeks. If A&M beats Alabama, the Aggies could be a Top 15 team. If A&M loses, it drops from the poll.

I find it interesting that A&M had been ranked for all five of its games, which is one more than last year's team during the regular season. There’s no doubt last year’s team was much better than this year’s team by proving it on the field.

This year’s team has been ranked on what last year’s team accomplished. Now the challenge for this year’s team is proving itself worthy of being ranked.
