COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman
watched as many of his competitors started practice last week and
couldn't wait to get his team on the field.
On Tuesday the Aggies finally got going, holding more than a
two-hour practice to get the 2011 season under way.
Sherman says he felt like it had been "forever" since his team
practiced and while he didn't love the crispness of Day 1, he was
impressed with the attitude of his team.
Expectations are high for Texas A&M this season, with many
believing this is the best team the Aggies have had in more than a
decade as 10 offensive and eight defensive starters return from
last year's 9-4 team.
