Fisher, Aggies trying to be patient as they rebuild the program

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – Patience is a virtue.

Good things come to those who wait.

You're likely dusting off all the clichés about patience if you're an Aggie football fan this season.

The Aggies aren't quite to a championship level yet, but they're getting closer week-by-week.

Entering the season much was made about Texas A&M's late season struggles. With two losses on the road in their last two games a lot of people could say the same thing is happening in 2018. But head coach Jimbo Fisher says, look closer, his team is playing a lot tougher and is very close to getting it.

Fisher said, "We haven't been there to know. We don't know we don't know how to be there, and that's what we have to do. I'm not disappointed as far as the way their effort and all that is. We have to keep learning and teaching in what we're doing. I'm disappointed in the results we've gotten but those kids are focused and totally committed and buying in to do what we've got to do but there's another level mentality wise and a psychological disposition we have to understand and be comfortable in."

Running back Trayveon Williams feels like his team is fighting hard. "I definitely feel like we're changing the narrative and this is not something that's going to happen immediately. We want it to happen immediately but we're going through a completely different coaching change. Not making any excuses or anything, but you have to be able to adjust to it and we have to be able to change and I feel like this is a lot stronger team. We're fighting in tough situations."

Offensive lineman Connor Lanfear added, "Jimbo's offense is a very physical one and we have displayed some toughness. We've just got to learn how to finish games and really put our foot on the gas and put the win out of these other teams reach. I think we've just gotten better week to week and although we're frustrated with our record right now, it's not where we want to be, I think it's just something that's going to continue to get better as time under Jimbo goes on."

Saturday the Aggies return to Kyle Field for the first time in over a month when they host the Ole Miss Rebels. Kickoff on Saturday is at 11 a.m., you can watch the game on KBTX.
