COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Mike Sherman says he's disappointed in himself, two days after his Texas A&M coaching debut ended in a stunning home loss to Arkansas State.
Arkansas State won 18-14 on Saturday, its first win over a Big
12 opponent in 15 tries.
Texas A&M built a 14-3 lead and gained more than 230 yards in
the first half, then self-destructed in the second half with four
turnovers, a missed field goal and several blown defensive plays.
Sherman says he feels a huge responsibility that Aggie fans went
home without a victory.
Arkansas State gained more than 400 yards of total offense.
Sherman also second-guessed a short-yardage call he made just
Instead of forcing the ball up the middle on 4th-and-1, Sherman
chose to pitch it outside to running back Mike Goodson, who was
tackled short of the first-down marker.
The Aggies play at New Mexico next week.
