There are a lot of coaches that are expected to be under the spotlight this season.

One of the biggest ones looks to be Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M. He's been with the Aggies for four seasons, but is coming off a disappointing 8-4 finish.

In 2020, the Aggies went 10-1 and looked to be on the verge of being a contender before they took those few steps back.

Finebaum spoke about how he expects a lot out of Fisher this year since he has a full complement of players.

"I'm going to correct myself of a couple of weeks ago when I said, 'Yeah, I don't expect much this year,'" Finebaum said on Cubelic and McElroy in the Morning. "You know what? I do now, because I started to think, 'This is not the second year for Jimbo Fisher.' I mean, he's been there a long time now. He should have his full complement. And it almost seemed like we gave him a reboot. I think anything less than 10 games is a disappointment Greg because I don't know how you could explain it."

The Aggies also have the top overall recruiting class for this year coming in, which is only going to put more pressure on Fisher.

The time to win is now and we'll see if the Aggies can finally challenge the Alabama Crimson Tide for the top spot in the SEC West.
