Default Good luck Dumbo

Be careful what you wish for. Good luck competing against Alabama, Auburn, and LSU....By the way, you are taking the coaches with you, right?

I'm guessing he thinks at this point 2 of the three of those are easier to beat than Clemson. Plus a guaranteed 75mil makes it an easy choice.

Fisher already has a national championship on his resume, just signed a contract for $75 million guaranteed and he's the "dumbo?"

He got himself a raise of two million a year over what he was making at FSU.

Kevin, haven't you been following the Net54 sports experts? The SEC sucks. If Georgia or Alabama do not win out, the Net54 sports experts' expertise will be validated. If either DOES win out, it was luck or cheating and a Pac 12 or Big 12 team would have beaten either team if fairly allowed the chance.

But back to topic - Jimbo Fisher is not the first coach (and this is not limited to college football) to be great somewhere (National Championships are "great", even by the Net54 experts' standards...I hope) and then be not-so-great. Sometimes such coaches re-vamp their careers elsewhere, as do players. So precedence says it could work out for him.

Having said the above, I believe Fisher will suck at Texas A&M - A&M is a black hole for good coaches to get sucked into, never to revive. It is also a black hole for not-so-good coaches to enter to be proven that they are not-so-good.

This could be directed at me, but I don't think the SEC sucks. I just think they are portrayed as better than they actually are. I think that any SEC team would struggle to get through a Big Ten, Pac 12, ACC or Big 12 season undefeated. Just as any team in any other conference would struggle to go undefeated in the SEC. The difference in conferences are not anywhere near as far apart as some would have you believe.

And the correlations go both ways. When the SEC loses their bowl games (Not BCS), it's because they don't care. When they win, it's because of how great they are.

Actually, I agree with your assessment.

I would have put Ohio State in over Alabama. You can only put in four teams and you have five major conferences - at least take four of the five conference champions. If that was a rule you would have far less arguing - especially this year. You could also add a play-in game to allow the worst two conference champs to play for the #4 seed.

If Notre Dame wants to play they can join a conference.

Possibly, but last year I would have said there was no way Clemson could beat Alabama.
