Can you post a prediction from a major sports writer that predicted us to win bigly in 2008?So much wrong with your post. I will just mention one. That is not an objective fact. It was a subjective unsourced memory of a subjective opinion.
And while you may be able to source someone who projected us to go 3-9, yes it was a fact that it was his opinion but it was not an underlying fact that we were a 3-9 team.
It was actually a lack of confidence in the incoming coach Paul Johnson. Chan Gailey had a winning record every single year he was here, with a lot worse teams. That 2008 team had a sound foundation, so there was no reason to project them to 3-9 unless you thought the incoming coach was going to be suboptimal.
