Texas A&M Spring Practice: New OC Kliff Kingsbury Talks Aggie Offense

What should Aggie fans expect from the offense under new head coach Kevin Sumlin and new offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury? Maybe not entirely the "Air Raid" attack of the old Texas Tech offense or even the passing craziness down in Houston under Sumlin and Case Keenum.

No, according to Kingsbury, there will be plenty of running backs involved:

Kingsbury admits that the playmakers in the A&M offense rest at the running back position. With senior Christine Michael, freshman Trey Williams, potentially OU transfer Brandon Williams, and a talented offensive line, he said A&M will run the ball plenty. And when they don't, they'll get them the ball in space with screens and bubble screens.

There may be no bigger playmaker in the Aggie offense than Trey Williams next season, as the talented freshman from Spring Dekaney could make an immediate impact as a returner. But, what should you expect from the offense?

I think it'll end up a little like Missouri's attack the past few years more than the one at UH. Mizzou had some big-time talented players, and used the quick passes and bubble screens with devastating effect. I watched from the press box as the Tigers demolished A&M one fine October afternoon using the exact same thing. Wide splits, quick passes, no way for the defense to rush the passer.

With the general athletic level and speed increase in the Southeastern Conferene, A&M may be able to completely duplicate it, but I'd expect the Aggies to play more like Oregon's Space And Pace attack. However they play, it should be exciting to watch.
