National reaction to Texas A&M-Arkansas: Zach Calzada, Aggies under fire after season’s first loss

Aggies’ new QB has yet to eclipse 60 percent completion in three games

Texas A&M football came into the 2021 season with a chip on its shoulder after last season’s playoff snub finish and 15 returning starters. Through three out-of-conference games against typically less-than programs, the Aggies’ competitive fire noticeably dwindled as they only scarped by in three wins. Now, after an upset by Arkansas, many fans are left wondering what this team has to hope for the rest of 2021.

With newly-named starting quarterback Haynes King suffering a fractured tibia in Week 2 and No. 1 Alabama still looming on the slate, many are in a frenzy to play coach and diagnose A&M’s problems before a tailspin sets into the program.
