Making predictions is a lose-lose profession. If you’re right, nobody remembers. If you’re wrong, everybody remembers and can’t wait to throw it back in your face.
On Saturday’s College GameDay, analyst Kirk Herbstreit made headlines when he said Texas A&M would win out. That was notable because the Aggies still have a matchup against a top-5 team in LSU on their schedule.
However, A&M didn’t even make it that far before losing, as coach Jimbo Fisher’s squad fell 28-13 to a Mississippi State squad that had been struggling entering Saturday night.
As you can see below, fans couldn’t wait to hop on Twitter and throw it in Herbie’s face:
When ESPN broadcasts Gameday from Death Valley next week, ima need someone to make a sign commemorating the fact that Kirk Herbstreit said today that A&M wouldn’t lose again in the regular season @OldTakesExposed

@KirkHerbstreit Please pick against A&M the rest of the year. You’re a jinx.

It’s hilarious how wrong @KirkHerbstreit is on the regular “Texas A&M won’t lose another game this year” 😂😂
