See 2013 UCF, 2015 Houston.

Your best chances are Memphis and Tulsa. I think you guys are underestimating the effect of coaching changes regarding Houston and USF.

we won ours on a coaching change ..

Yup, Houston is certainly an example of the counter point. But that is generally the exception, and not the rule.

I do think Major made a big mistake in saying "9-3 is not good enough." As I have said before, 9-3 likely means you are in the Championship Game or are playing for it the last week of the season.

Well, people forget that Boise has lost five conference games in the past two seasons, and has only one two titles in the past five. Kind of proves my point, Boise has averaged 9.5 wins in the past two seasons, and 10 over the past five, and that includes post season games. Thus, 9-3 in the regular season is what the mentioned teams do on average.

He said that in his introductory press conference when the team was 9-3 and had underachieved. He was referring to the often anticlimactic 4-3 end to a 5-0 Top 6 national start.

Ok. So would a 2-2 start followed by finished 7-1 in conference play and making it to the Conference Championship Game be acceptable?

Yes, considering in April he said:

"I think 8-4, 9-3, 10-2, 11-1 should be a minimum every year. I think that's what we need to hold ourselves to. ... I don't think that's unrealistic, I don't think that's a pie-in-the-sky thought."

In April, he was discussing expectations for the program.

In December, he was looking at his (9-3) team in the press conference room who were disappointed in how they finished when he said "We know 9-3 is not good enough."

Well that is entirely different. I am glad he expounded, and/or clarified that point. That is the SDSU standard now as well.

Lol....fanhoods "projections" lifted from the MW Board.


Houston is going to go 2-2 OOC this year, 1-1 vs P5 IMO. ECU is going to go 1-3 OOC and 0-3 vs P5. Memphis will go 0-1 vs P5 this year and 3-1 overall. Temple will get crushed by ND in opening week, and Cinci will be embarrassed by Michigan. Only USF will have a win against the P5, and that will be against Illinois.

The AAC fans are in for a let down this year.


Of course he has the MW winning virtually every OOC game they play. Comedy Gold.
