    How do we do?

    Charleston So. W
    UK W
    Colo. St W
    @ UT 50/50
    @ Miss. St L
    LSU L
    @ Vandy W
    UGA L
    Mizzou W
    USCe W
    Idaho W
    @ FSU L

    I have us at 7.5 basically, but I think we get upset by someone, so probably more like 6.5 as an over/under.

      i feel like we did this already

      Charleston So. W
      UK W
      Colo. St W
      @ UT 50/50
      @ Miss. St L
      LSU L
      @ Vandy W
      UGA L
      Mizzou 50/50
      USCe 50/50
      Idaho W
      @ FSU L

      Im guessing 7.

      Not a lot of wins in Oct or Nov. Millinz is used to this.

        I think we can get 8 wins if things line up and not to many injuries. Anything above that is gravy. I just hope we grow and progress as the year goes on and are playing our best football at the end of the year. We really need to find a way to beat FSU, as that would help a lot with in state recruiting.

        I felt better heading into the season until I learned Meadowlark passed again.

          Charleston So. W
          UK W They come to the Swamp. They don't have enough offense to beat our D
          Colo. St W
          @ UT W
          @ Miss. St W They will be hyped to begin the game but our coaches know their weaknesses
          LSU W No contest, this is where we assert our dominance - big win
          @ Vandy W tough letdown game after LSU, we win 17-7
          UGA W We will run, run, & run some more. Our pass rush will get to their QB and they will have no running game 24-10
          Mizzou W
          USCe W
          Idaho W
          @ FSU W All the frustration from the past 8 years is let out 41-17

          SEC - MISS ST W rematch with Miss State ends in the same way

          Playoff - Washington W tough game but we make them a passing team and throw them off their game
          National Championship W Clemson - two tough defenses fighting it out. We win in an epic battle 24-19

                      So 7 wins huh? I see 8/9 but y’all think it’s all gloom and doom so there’s that...we should win one we shouldn’t and lose one in a haleartbreaker but it’d be hard to lose to FSU AGAIN...I really hope that game is a win but I think we get to 8 regardless...if Mullen sticks it out w Franks...all this is shot to hell and we make a bowl in Florida and go 7-6

                      Charleston So.,UK, Colo. St, UT, LSU , Vandy, Mizzou, Idaho 8 wins outright

                      Miss. St, FSU, USC Toss-up 1-2 wins

                      UGA Loss 1 Loss

                      That puts us at 9 and 3 or 10 and 2 with a bowl game (Outback)

                      It is a tricky thing; I can see us going 5-7, 6-6, 7-5, 8-4, or 9(+) wins. The two questions needing answers to really know what we can do are: how much has or OL improved (if any), and the second is how, much has DM improved our QB situation? Since this is a prediction thread, these questions will not have real answers until after the UGLY game, and I'm a pumper; my prediction is 8 wins.

                          10-2, with losses to UGA and FSU and I am not sure about the FSU loss.

                            6-6. We start out 4-0 with #4 at UT and all of you think we are the real deal and the pumping is in full swing. We lose at Miss. State and fall off to LSU. We win at Vandy and everyone thinks the ship has balanced but the Dwags spiral the season to a death spin.

                              7-5 as I figure the QB position will get us a loss aginst either KY, Tenn or SC. Chose SC for that loss figuring they will frustrate our QB and get that win.

                              With respect:

                              LSU is far weaker than years past. They have not picked a QB, their WR are not of the same caliber, and they don't have the dominant RBs

                              I think we win at least one of the UGA, FSU, MSU games

                              I'm hopeful for 8 or 9 wins, but the reality is...

                              The only "sure" wins are Charleston Southern, Colorado State, and Idaho.
                              Game against Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Missouri, and South Carolina are "should" wins.
                              Probable losses are Miss. State, LSU, Georgia, and FSU.

                              So, if we hold form as above, we'll be 8-4. I can easily see us losing a couple of those "should" win games, but I also wouldn't be surprised if we pull an upset and beat MSU, LSU, or FSU. Regardless, I don't see us being better than some combination that comes to 8-4.
