Fan of Fanboys - Matrix and HC,

SDS is doing their regular season predictions and they have A&M at 7-5, losing to their big time opponents. I know with the schedule and recruits coming in that '20 is the season for y'all to start really making noise but no way they go 7-5, right?

Alabama
Clemson
UGA
LSU
Auburn

I think y'all win vs Auburn and potentially vs UGA or LSU. Not sure which yet.

I imagine the fanbase would not be happy with 0-5. Would 1-4 even be accepted? I know 0-5 won't equal him being fired but it would really ramp up the hot seat for next year, right?

I don't know. I said from the beginning 2020 was the year I would get critical. 8-4 would be fine this year but I really think 9-3 is doable. I honestly think 10-2 is possible but like I said 2020 is the year for me. The two things that Jimbo has changed dramatically are the toughness mentally and physically. Schmidt has done an outstanding job and Jimbos personality rubs off.

Just really want to see improvement. Mond will be the key imo.


but way you'd be content with 0-5, right? not saying fireable, I love the Jimbo hire, but he has to win at least one of those 5 right?

Yeah that would be very frustrating. Honestly we should've been 9-3 last year. We had Auburn until BamBam opened his mouth!!! ;))

And Clemson almost

Great video Herman...

The only thing preventing the kid from getting into the NFL would be his 40 time...

Did you guys see that most 40 times are exaggerated in high school? Might of read that article in one of your guys posts here or in Herman's Mega 2018 College Football thread...

Will be interesting to see how he develops...

How do you guys see the Gators vs Canes game next Saturday? Seems like Gators should win by a couple TDs but the only thing that gives me pause is Miami has beat the brakes off the Gators a couple of times in this same position. I live in Florida and Gator fans are currently at the confidence level of the Spurrier era as if there is no doubt they are winning the east and will be best for years to come. Theu are the absolute most annoying fan base I have ever encountered when at this level.

I doubt he will get a ton of playing time until he's atleast a sophomore, Clemson will be just as deep the next 2 years after this one as last year

I know a lot of Florida fans and they have a superior coach with underrated talent. They will absolutely win the SEC East and prove coaching > bullshit high school ratings

Saw many games against him and he was a beast. I remember him being on Dave Campbell's Texas football magazine as a kid

Ranked teams by conference:
Big 10 = 7
SEC = 6
Pac-12 = 5 (no USCw!)
Big 12 = 3
ACC = 2
AAC = 1
Independent = 1

The SEC is top heavy with #2, #3, #6, #8, #12, and #16

Iowa and Iowa St are both ranked at the same time for the first time ever

They shouldn't be, but there is a lot of hype. They have a 2nd year QB that is a perfect fit for Frost's offense. The 2nd half of their 2018 season was pretty good only losing to Ohio State by 5 and to Iowa by 3. People are banking on their defense being improved.

Gameday could possibly coming to Ames for the first time ever if both teams don't stumble. Looking at the CFB schedule Clemson/Syracuse could also be a contender for week 3, but they already announced Clemson getting it in week 2 (I think).
