Bank on it. The gameplan will be so thin you can see through it

No chance of that happening. Texas A&M will not view UAB as a threat no matter how good we do this season.

Ole Miss and Mississippi State bought out our series with each of them before Clark came here.

As I recall it, MSU bought out the B'ham game after losing to a visiting UAB. Ole Miss wasn't ever going to take that risk. Ole Miss and Bama think alike about playing risky OOC games, especially in state schools.

The question is, "How big of a risk is it to play a team with 40+ seniors who see 2018 as their last chance to shine and with a real chance at a successful season when you have a new coach?". Is it worth the chance? This is a game that Texas A&M fans expect to win and win BIG against a team 1 year removed from non-existence. What if they don't? Judging by their 2018 non-conference season(Northwestern State, Clemson, & OLM), UAB may be their 2nd toughest game as they use the tried-and-true SEC scheduling model - 1 P5, 1 FCS, 2 "lower-level" G5.

Wow. I didn't really think about it until you posted it, We've got 61 guys that are Redshirt Juniors (43) and Redshirt Seniors (18). That's a whole lot of heart and effort to stick around and give Football one more last chance.

A good number of those 43 juniors are going to be playing their final year of football this year. Some are walkons who will be graduating, some are scholarship guys who could apply for what would be their 6th year (and according to what the NCAA has told us, should have no problem getting it,) but have already told the coaches that this would probably be their last year.
