Kellen Mond says Texas A&M can make an LSU-type of improvement in 2020

The LSU Tigers set the standard for what college football success is in 2019, capping off an undefeated season with a national championship win under the guidance of a quarterback who won the Heisman Trophy.
Surely, other teams around the Southeastern Conference are envious, and want to replicate that good fortune.
Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond said this week that he thinks the Aggies have the talent to make the same type of jump LSU did.
“It’s kind of weird being able to play all those guys and seeing what kind of change LSU made,” Mond said in a phone interview per DallasNews.com. “They were a good team the year we beat them [in 2018] but becoming an elite team and one of the best teams of all time this past year just kind of shows the work they put in.”

Mond noted significant improvement within the roster.
“Obviously, some of those went from undrafted to first round,” he said. “Hopefully guys from A&M can realize that and it only takes one year. Hopefully, we put in the work and we can make that happen ourselves.”
Texas A&M hasn’t exactly proven itself worthy of being in the conversation for top teams in recent history, so it’ll be interesting to see if they can level up this season.
