Arrow 2018 Prediction Thread - It Can Never Be Too Soon

Coastal Carolina - Until proven otherwise, I will always feel that our season opener will be a mash up for jitters, mental mistakes, and nerves. Our talent is starting to get to a level now that this game isn't as scary as in the past ... W

Georgia - Hopefully Georgia has some guys get arrested and suspended. Michel and Chubb both graduate, and we can only hope it takes the Offense a few (and not a couple) of weeks to figure out their new identity. They're also coming to our house in what will be hyped as the Eastern Division Championship game in week 2 ... Toss Up

Marshall - Went 8-5 this season, but I don't know squat about them. We could be flying high or looking to right the ship back. Either way ... W

@ Vanderbilt - W

@ Kentucky - We have to beat them this year ... right? ... W

Missouri - Benefiting from a second half season that included Idaho, UConn, Vanderbilt and dumpster fires Florida, Tennessee, and Arkansas, and their Offense finally showing up. Missouri could be a team ready to get back into contention in the East. They lost to every team with a pulse, so maybe they're not that ready ... W

Texas A&M - They're that team that no matter how we play it ends up coming down to the 4th quarter and somebody making a play (unless they beat our breaks off in week 1). It's too early to see what every QB transferring out and a new staff is going to look like ... Toss Up

BYE - before entering into the "meat" of the schedule, I think we have ever chance of being 5-2 at worse, and if the stars a line undefeated. I think the realistic is probably closer to the 5-2 or 6-1 mark.

Tennessee - They have a long way to go. I don't think they're where we were 2 years ago, but they're not far from it ... W

@ Ole Miss - We finally catch a West team when they should suck ... we'll probably lose knowing us ... KIDDING ... W

@ Florida - This is a game that Florida ADs/Presidents/BOT/Fans are going to circle every year now. Spurrier was another story, but they sent Muschamp packing, and they won't want him coming in and whooping that tail every year. I don't think they'll get all of their issues figured out in one year ... W

Chattanooga - If the Wofford game showed us anything this year, this team will NOT play down to it's opponent ... W

@ Clemson - This will basically be a home game for Carolina since Clemson fans are the most polite and sweet individuals on the face of this Earth and would NEVER do anything that may make our players feel unwelcomed. I still don't know if we have the ponies, but this could be the first Top 20/Top 15 match up in the rivalry and we're closing that talent gap down in a hurry. I never pick this game, because you just never know what will happen ... Toss Up

9 Regular season wins
3 Toss Ups

Default Re: 2018 Prediction Thread - It Can Never Be Too Soon

Cack--you can't predict a toss up. By definition, that's not a prediction.

Coastal Carolina - W. I doubt we score 40+, but will be bland on the field and exciting to tailgate.

Georgia - L. I really want to predict a win, but even with losing Michel and Chubb and hoping that there's regression, I still don't think we have quite enough yet. McClendon's offense is the x-factor, but as of right now, I'm going to predict a L

Marshall - W

@ Vanderbilt - W

@ Kentucky - W. not again.

Missouri - W. Mizzou at home. Muschamp isn't going to be scared of their offense. If I'm going to predict a game on Mizzou offense v. T-Rob's d, we win.

Texas A&M - W. Bold statement, but I'm going with at this point in the season, either the wheels have come off with a new staff or they're riding high and ready to be brought back to earth. Enough film at this point any wrinkles are clear and I'm ready to beat them.

BYE - I'm predicting 6-1. Really has very little to do with our talent necessarily and more to do with how good the schedule sets up. Drop TAMU or Mizzou and 5-2, still not the end of the world. 4-3 or worse, it'll be a bad week to be on the team with Muschamp screaming at you.

Tennessee - W--They're the biggest question mark to me. Pruitt can get something going, and they've recruited well, but just how ingrained is that culture of suck they've been building for a decade? I'm still hoping with the bye-week before this game, we pull it out.

@ Ole Miss - W--they should still suck. This is, however, prime spot for a classic USC letdown game, but not with Muschamp....or really not with how bad Ole Miss should be.

@ Florida - w (lowercase) --I wish I could reserve this prediction until the season starts, but since I've got to put it all on the line...I just don't know. They have a solid roster and with Mullen there, this just seems like a L to me. A lot of the prediction here has to do with how UGA and Florida has done. Florida beats UGA, we lose. Florida is out of the east race, we win.

Chattanooga - W

@ Clemson - L -- asking too much, too soon.


Final prediction: 10-2, possible 9-3 with Florida. Anything less than 9 wins with the schedule, the coaching changes, and the talent we have will be a letdown.

Default Re: 2018 Prediction Thread - It Can Never Be Too Soon

Here's what I got. Subject to change of course:

vs. Coastal Carolina: W - First half will be like a typical season opener. Lots of jitters, stupid mistakes, etc. But we'll get it together for a comfortable win over a team that is new to the big boy league.

vs. Georgia: L - Georgia obviously had a phenomenal year, but they are losing a lot. Having that said, they will still be very talented, and Fromm seems like the real deal. Smart will have them contending for the SEC every year. Historically, they don't play well in Columbia, but they still have lots of talent. L for now, but an upset isn't out of the question.

vs. Marshall: W - Wanna know a fun fact? We have an 0-1 all-time record against Marshall. Only meeting was a 24-21 loss in Columbia in 1998. That won't happen this time around. I don't know anything about them, but this feels like a game where we win, but not for style points.

at Vanderbilt: W - Vandy took a step back last year, and I think we will see more of the same from them. They haven't proven anything to think that they are a threat. Plus, we have their number.

at Kentucky: W - Two back to back SEC road games. That can be tough no matter the venues. It hurts to say it but Kentucky has been a thorn in our side since 2014. We just can't seem to beat them. However, we are long overdue for a win against these guys. Kentucky's program trajectory seems to be stuck in neutral, while ours in going up. Muschamp will have these guys ready to play and to get the monkey off our back.

vs. Missouri: W - I like their coach, and I think in a few years they will be a solid team. However, he is one year away. They had a decent 2017, but all of their wins were thanks to a weak schedule. Lock is an underrated QB and could give us trouble, but I think we pull this one out.

vs. Texas A&M: L* - They seem to have our number no matter what happens. Last year was our best chance, but then Kurt Roper happened. This could easily be a win with their coaching change, but I won't predict a W until we can prove that we can beat the Aggies.

vs. Tennessee: W - Once again, UT is in rebuilding mode. Pruitt could be their guy, but he still has a ways to go. Coming off a bye, I think we are well rested to pull of the W against an average Tennessee team. Muschamp still will not have lost to a Tennessee team...

at Ole Miss: W - The ultimate trap game. However, Ole Miss is a mess right now on and off the field. Muschamp is not a coach who will overlook anyone. Potential for a sloppy game, but a win.

at Florida: W* - I have a W here, but it could easily be an L. Gainesville is always tough, but they are going through a coaching change. A hard fought game like it always is with the Gators. A win here would be huge for Muschamp. I really can see this going either way...

vs. Chattanooga: W - Another year, another FCS team before Clemson. Game will be over by the middle of the 3rd quarter.

at Clemson: L - I would LOVE to put this as a W and have an upset, but just don't see it happening right now. They were exposed vs Alabama, but they still have talent. Given that it's in Clemson doesn't help. Some fans will quickly point out a potential 0-3 record vs Clemson, but Muschamp can't help that they have been a Top 5 team ever since he got here.

*I think we beat Florida OR Texas A&M, but not both.*

I'll go with 9-3 (6-2 SEC). Impossible to predict right now, but that would probably mean a Citrus or Peach Bowl birth. Muschamp continues to build this program faster than expected.

I agree with CACK!! Marshall was 7-5 beat (ColaSt 7-6) to get to 8-5. It was their best win of the year. Should be a W.

Gonna say 11-1, we beat A&M and split the other two toss ups (UGA and Clemson)

I don't know enough about the drop/adds from a lot of teams, but A&M, UF, and UT all have new coaches. I guess you can count Ole Miss with a new coach too, sorta kinda...and when that happens I don't think those games are easy picks.

At this point, I'll say 8 (why not) wins regular season.

There's no legitimate reason we should not have 10 wins regular season. In reality, I'm sticking with 8-5 overall season. I went this way last season and got surprised.

Probable Wins:

Coastal Carolina

Marshall

@ Vanderbilt

Missouri

Tennessee

Chattanooga




Likely Losses:

Georgia

@ Clemson



Toss-Ups:

@ Ole Miss

@ Florida

Texas A&M

@Kentucky



The way I see it, there are 6 wins that we should definitely get, although Missouri always depends upon their offense and Locke is going to be a Senior, but I'm calling those 6 wins.

UGA and @ Clemson are more than likely losses unless we take a pretty big step forward and they take a step backwards as well. We are a year or two away from competing or at least beating these teams IMO.

That leaves 4 teams in the toss-up category for me. Sorry guys, but no matter how good or bad we think A&M or KY will be, until we can actually win on the field, neither of these is an automatic W preseason.

I'm also not nearly as big of a Mullen fan and don't think he will do as well longterm as most people do, but Florida does have some talent and in the Swamp an even competent coach can make them a handful.

Ole Miss I think we can beat, but we haven't played them in awhile and there are just so many unknowns that with the game on the road it is hard to count that as an automatic W as well.

I say we go 2-2 in our toss-up games and finish the regular season at 8-4 again. While that won't likely excite some of our fanbase, it will establish some consistency and we will continue to improve on the recruiting trail IMO.

Our best seasons are still ahead of us and 2018 will be successful, but still not an SEC Championship kind of season.

Ole Miss has a long road ahead of them - on and off the field. Not saying it'll be an easy win, but we should be able to take care of them. The NCAA will be hanging over that program for a while, and lots of their players have opted to leave because of that.

I think this is finally the year we get over the UK hump. I know I said that last year, but we are more talented this time around. Even when we were beating UK, it was always a close one, so I expect that this year.

A&M and UF are hard to predict right now, so I think we split those.

They would have to lose at least one more game. They would have a tie breaker.

Well during our 11 win seasons we beat UGA but lost 2 others and they got to go so yes it’s possible.

As for my prediction.

Coastal Carolina - W

Georgia - I don't know why, but I feel a win here...could just be gas.... W

Marshall - W

@ Vanderbilt - W

@ Kentucky - W

Missouri - Missouri will probably set SEC records for points scored on joe nobody and then light us up to the tune of 14 points. W

Texas A&M - Thinking this is finally the year we get a W against them

BYE - L

Tennessee - W

@ Ole Miss - Something about this game makes me uneasy, probably the fact that it's on the road L (hope I am wrong here)

@ Florida - I think we rebound in the swamp against a gators team that isn't quite back yet. W

Chattanooga - W

@ Clemson - Really depends on our OLine. If we see a lot of improvement I could see us pulling out a win, but for now I am gonna say L.


10-3 cuz bye is a dirty rotten cheater and never loses.

Also, I think we end 11-2 (taking out the bye joke) with a W in the bowl game for our 4th ever 11 win season!

I actually think my 9 wins with 3 toss ups is about as sunshine pumper as you can be. Georgia and Clemson will again be the toughest games we play and we haven't beaten either of them in far too long, so you can't justify either of those as a W. Then that just puts 1 more game on the schedule as not a for-sure victory ...

I agree with Cack.

I actually think the schedule is easier than last year, and that was not exactly a killer with some coaches falling on their swords. Now we have new coaches at UT, UF, TAMU. Three of our tougher opponents - TAMU, UGA, /UT - are at home. UGA loses a lot from last year's team and will be young, the set up is there for an upset.

Clemson is a killer - they are keeping a lot of their draft-eligible guys and it is at their place. But they have been remarkably injury-free and Wilkins is likely to leave, plus they could have some overdue controversy after Bryant's showing in the playoffs.

Their Offense is not set up to for a pro-style QB and their suspect O Line loses three starters, and we are loaded with young pass rushers. So maybe we can give a welcome to Trevor Lawrence if he is thrown out there as a Freshman.
