Texas A&M drops two spots in the latest USA TODAY Coaches Poll

Texas A&M hit their first roadblock on the season when they traveled to Gainsville Florida to take on the No. 8 Florida Gators. The pitching took a step back after being one of the top rotations in the country for the first few weeks. The lack of quality opponents could take some of the blame as the SEC is a whole other ball game compared to the non-conference schedule the Aggies completed with an unblemished record.

There was a lot to learn from the past weekend and now that the honeymoon is over, this talented bunch is ready to get back to business. Coach Jim Schlossnagle will probably start to look at his weekend starters again and the hitting coach will need to get things back dialed in during the midweek game.

Dropping the SEC series opener is not the end of the world because there is a ton of baseball left to the played, but it helps answer a few questions the college baseball world wanted to know once the Aggies played a team closer to their caliber.
