    You probably don't know Henry Swann. He's based out of Mobile, Ala., and works in hotel construction. Chances are, you are familiar with his alter ego, the fictional character Alabama Tom.

Texas A&M Preview

Returning Starters: 16

Offense: 5

Defense: 9

kicker, Punter

Pros - The defense can only get better... I mean... it can't get worse right? It's a major rebuilding year on offense, but there is little doubt that Kevin Sumlin will find a way to produce points. Should have a solid running game while they break in the quarterback.

Cons - No more Johnny Football... Mike Evans... or Jake Matthews! Never easy to replace 3 NFL first round draft picks on offense and a former Heisman winner. Their schedule doesn't do them any favors, Aggies have road games at South Carolina, Alabama, and Auburn.

Breakdown:

Aug. 28th at South Carolina - Loss

Sept. 6th vs. Lamar - Win

Sept. 13th vs. Rice - Win

Sept. 20th at SMU - Win

Sept. 27th vs. Arkansas - Swing Game

Oct. 4th at Mississippi State - Swing Game

Oct. 11th vs. Ole Miss - Swing Game

Oct. 18th at Alabama - Loss

Nov. 1st vs. La-Monroe - Win

Nov. 8th at Auburn - Loss

Nov. 15th vs. Missouri - Swing Game

Nov. 27th vs. LSU - Loss

It's going to a rebuilding year in College Station. I think they have a shot at winning 6 out of their first 7 games, but that's if they can make it past Arkansas and the two Mississippi schools. I don't see them winning at Alabama or Auburn. They finish up the year with Missouri and LSU... both losable games. I think Texas A&M is a bowl team, but I wouldn't plan on much more than that.
