Default What was your original prediction for the season, revised?

Basically I think mine will end up being pretty spot on unfortunately. We probably should've lost to NC State and beaten Kentucky but that makes it a wash as far as my predictions go anyway.. Also with Vanderbilt knocking off a ranked Kansas State I think they'll be a much stronger team this year and they always play us close anyway - so I changed this to a L. Just curious, and for people still predicting a good season I'd like your thoughts and opinions as to how we go about doing that now..

Just so you know...nothing in your predictions for future games changed if you add up the Ws and Ls. You still have us going 5-7, but switched the NC State and UK games.

It was supposed to show a L for Vandy... I edited my post. So yeah it's only changed one game, but still revised nonetheless.

Default Re: What was your original prediction for the season, revised?

Just curious if you would've posted this had we won the UK game? Trying to validate a pessimistic outlook based on going 66% with preseason predictions seems a stretch.

I'm not saying you're going to be wrong, but this reeks of either a 'pat me on the back for seeing things as they were now that we've finally lost a game' or 'my football IQ is very high, please try to debate me'.

Just for the sake of addressing the question, my preseason thought would be going 7-8 wins based on the weakness of the SEC east and the good draw from the west. I still think we win seven with the mix of losing some we should've won and stealing one or two.

Default Re: What was your original prediction for the season, revised?

I'm just trying to understand what sunshine pumpers always see when they pick 9-10 win seasons and especially now after losing to Kentucky. Don't see how someone could pick us to win 7-8 games, and I want to understand.

This isn't a 'pat me on the back' or 'look at me thread.' If we had beaten UK surely I wouldn't have posted this and I'd still be quietly optimistic. There are signs we aren't a great team, not even that good of a team anyway - when Purdue trounced Mizzou 35-3. I know it's a different circumstance playing Mizzou in the day vs. being a conference foe there at night.... but Purdue absolutely trounced them. Isn't Purdue low level Big 10?

Another words, you only come around to post when things are going bad and want to show everyone you thought it would be bad from the start.

Your post history suggest otherwise, this is your first football related post this season.

What does the frequency with which he posts have to do with it?

He originally thought we'd win 5 games and now he thinks only 4. I think we will manage to win 6 but it will be ugly and hard to watch. One more injury and 4 might be about right.

As I stated, certain posters only come around when things are bad. As he stated, he didn't even post his prediction here, so now he brings it up after a loss.

Nothing changed. I though we might come out the first 3 games with a loss, I just didn't think we would let Kentucky be that loss.

There are a few beatable teams that I thought we would have no shot against going into the season. Hopefully our guys get up off the mat and realize there are more games left.

I thought we might lose to NCSU and Mizzo but beat UK and LaTech. So I was thinking 2-2. What has changed for me is the loss to UK and the way we lost. I just didn't think we'd see such poor execution in game #3 - the first home game of the season.

Hopefully, it was just nerves.

7-5 and win the bowl game. No need to revise it yet. We're 2-1 after the 1st three games, and I'm good with that.

I don't think I posted my prediction, but I was expecting 6-6, possibly 7-5. I don't see any reason right now to change that prediction.

8-4 was my original prediction. (Losses to A&M, Tenn, UGA, and Clemson)

7-5 would be my prediction now. Same losses. Considering how bad Tennessee looks, maybe still 8-4. I'll go with 7-5 though. However, things need to change on the offensive side of the ball in order for us to see 7 wins.

I didn't make one. That way I'm not disappointed when we don't achieve an arbitrary number that I pulled out of thin air.
