I thought Maryland was going to be on the 2021 schedule? Darn. I was looking forward to seeing the Ponies twice here in the DMV.

I was there too, with son and grandson. Stayed to the bitter end. Weather wasn’t as bad as the outcome of the game!

And that is really saying something. I remember thinking it was 4:00 going on midnight at one point during that nor'easter. You knew we were in trouble in those conditions when JJ's approach was to sling it around and Navy never even attempted a pass

After the coin toss when SMU chose to take the ball rather than the wind, you knew JJ didn't realize the impact the weather would have on the game.

I toughed it out till the end as well. Of course when I got back to my hotel in Columbia, MD it stopped raining!

4 wins max. Much stronger schedule fielding a defense that gave up 50+ to really bad ECU team. Tight ends are not
going to help.

If we only get 4 wins will the 'fire Sonny' people crawl out?

9 wins at a minimum - wait until all the transfer get here - some of you guys can’t see the transformation that has taken place since Sonny has came here - JasonB said it - look what has happened here “thank you Sonny”

4 wins is my worst case scenario but 9 wins would be a big surprise and probably means we have to beat TCU in Ft Worth because our AAC schedule is going to be tougher than that trip...at Cincinnati, Memphis, Navy & Houston will all be tough

Tight Ends arent going to help? Have you been paying attention at all to the transfers we've brought in? One of them is a potential All-American if he stays healthy...

If we only get 4 wins then yes. That seed a ton of doubt into the program. Success raises the bar sadly for Sonny. When you got from 10 win seasons and back to back Top 25 ranking seasons then yes a 4 win season following for no reason absolutely brings that question. Hell even 6-6 should bring that up. The next expectation is 8-4 or better.
