PREDICT THE 2019 SEASON

Postby leopold » Tue Aug 20, 2019 10:31 am

It's now game week, boys. Perhaps not for us, but for college football.

Hallelujah.

So what is your prediction for the 2019 season.

Pros:
- We have 16 starters back
- A truckload of transfers, including at key positions
- It's year two of Sonny's tenure
- The schedule is more slightly more favorable

Cons:
- The transfers actually have to workout, not ever a given
- We need more stability on the 0-line
- Need another playmaker on the front Defensive seven
- Secondary needs to step up
- Why can't we ever have a dangerous special teams?

I believe we have the talent to beat anybody on the schedule, even if we aren't favored in all of them, and could hope for a 10 win season. But we also happen to be a bit of a headcase program.

I'm going with an optimistic 8-4. We can contend for a conference title with this team, but I don't think we are there just yet.

Hope springs eternal.

8-4 is my prediction.

If everything comes together perfectly, 10-2.
If there are major injuries (like 2016 where we lost Matt Davis, X. Jones, and Chad Pursley) then 6-6.

There is no excuse for this team not to make a bowl game.

We should win 8-9 games but will likely win 7 and I will be thankful we are back in a marginal bowl game.

Did you watch how this team played last year to finish the season?

Sadly, I did. But with better QB, more experienced Oline and deeper D, I do expect better results. 8-4
WINS: Ark St, TX St, Tulsa, ECU, Tulane
CLOSE: UNT, Temple, Navy
BIG ROAD CHALLENGE: USF, Memphis
LIKELY LOSS: TCU, UH

1st two games will dictate how this season goes. Win both and these guys might win 8 games. Lose both and it will be another long season. Split and a .500 season is likely

Just checked the Vegas Insider and pleased to see odds beginning to trend in SMU favor, from -3 to -2 1/2, for the Arkansas State game. Will be interesting to see when game week comes.
