SEC Network’s Peter Burns has a tough prediction for Texas A&M fans.
On Monday, the Aggies introduced Jimbo Fisher as their next coach. The move should usher in a new era of optimism for Texas A&M, given Fisher’s standing as a national title-winning coach and his overall success during his eight years at Florida State.
But Burns dished out a possible reality check for next season.
On Monday, the analyst used Twitter to predict the Aggies will start 2-2 under Fisher in 2018, with losses to Clemson and Alabama. Texas A&M also plays Northwestern State and Louisiana-Monroe in its first four games.
Check out his full thought below:
His comment about Fisher facing pressure is true. You don’t get paid $75 million over 10 years and not confront pressure. But Fisher understands what he signed up for by deciding to come to College Station.
It could take some time for the Aggies to become an elite force in the SEC West and the national picture as a whole. But the possibility for Texas A&M to rise among the country’s best in the next five years is there.
