Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin is already in hot water this season.

His athletic director put the pressure on before the season even began, Sumlin’s seat heated up during the Aggies’ 34-point blown lead in Week 1 and it really was brought to another level after a Regent called him out.

While Sumlin (and ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit) pushed back against the Regent, ESPN’s Paul Finebaum believes he is in trouble.

“What happens over the next 6-8 weeks will be critical. He has a critical game against Arkansas, then South Carolina and then he has Alabama and Florida in back-to-back weeks before an off week. The sense is, if there are three or four losses by then, it could be over by that particular point in time.”

Sumlin and Co. should run through Nicholls State and LA-Lafayette over the next two weeks. Arkansas and South Carolina look like difficult matchups, and Alabama appears to be unbeatable. If he’s still coaching, Florida certainly looks beatable as well.

There’s always the possibility Sumlin leaves College Station before the school can fire him, but we’ll keep tabs and see just how far this gets.
