Texas A&M Fall Camp: Kevin Sumlin Excited For Fall Camp To Begin

The Texas A&M Aggies players and coaches met with the media prior to taking their first fall practice as a member of the SEC. Head coach Kevin Sumlin did not feel nervous approaching his first fall camp with Texas A&M, but he was excited to finally get fall camp going:

"No butterflies, just excitement," Sumlin said. "Particularly in a new job and a new situation....I think it's all of our staff. We have a new staff and you saw guys yesterday starting to get edgy a little bit as coaches. We've only had 15 practices with these guys. So the 29 opportunities that we have before the first game, we've got to maximize those opportunities to get ready to play a very difficult schedule."

One key issue for Texas A&M is their quarterback situation which is wide open since the departure of Ryan Tannehill. Sumlin has four quarterbacks in the mix with Jameill Showers, Johnny Manziel, Matt Joeckel and Matt Davis. The staff will monitor the competition closely, and a final decision will be made two weeks prior to their opener against Louisiana Tech.

Everyone is excited to begin this new era of Texas A&M football, and Sumlin does not see this year as a rebuilding year for Texas A&M, but rather feels this team is ready to win right away and be a good team in the SEC.
