athlon sports: Arkansas State #93 



Coaching changes followed conference championships in each of the last three seasons at ASU. With a $3 million buyout in the first two years of his contract, Anderson figures to have a longer stay than immediate predecessors Hugh Freeze, Gus Malzahn and Bryan Harsin. The former North Carolina offensive coordinator inherits more than expectations, too. The Red Wolves figure to experience some of the typical transition issues, and there are key players to replace on both sides of the ball, but they have enough talent to contend for another Sun Belt title and bowl bid.

....really? They put over 10 schools that won 4 games or less last season ahead of the Red Wolves.

Third in conference is a high probability.

Wolves attack in packs. So it is best to attack them one on one, but even that can lend itself to be difficult.

With the success we've had the past 3 years, I would've hoped our recruiting classes alone would keep us out of the bottom third of the pre-season rankings.

They are playing the odds. They think that sooner or later a coaching hire will flop. Another thing is they never look at us as building anything when you start over with a new staff every year. To be honest you can't blame them.

Pre season predictions are about as accurate as throwing darts at a spinning wheel with 128 teams on it

You can't really blame people for being stupid, most of em are born that way.

I think third in conference with a 7-5 or 8-4 record is realistic. But I think we are better than the 90's; maybe 70's.

IMO .....No idea how good or bad we will be. I know we have a lot of talent coming back and have a lot of good pedigrees coaching. Gut feeling is it will be a fun season, But until I see how our kids respond to this staff after a loss,   I am not predicting. HC has zero losses on his record, and he said early in the process, "You guys all probably like me now, I have no losses!" Seems to have the right mentality but jury still out
