Thread: 2017 Record Prediction Poll

  1. #1

    Default 2017 Record Prediction Poll

    Can't remember if we ever actually had a thread for this before.

    Here's my breakdown. I don't do predictions for every game, just for groups of games

    Lose to Auburn
    Lose 2 of these 4: Indiana, App State, Arkansas State, Troy
    Lose 1 of these 7: UMass, UNH, NMSU, Georgia State, South Alabama, ULL, Coastal Carolina

    8-4 overall.

    The ordering of the games works in our favor with the hardest game and one of the easiest ones to start out with, followed by an off week before the one home game in the middle group of games.

    EDIT - Fixed it, thanks boroeagle2

    Hey, Tyson! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    You double counted UMass, and missing someone, ULM or USA maybe? I'll have to look.

    Edit: it's USA

    3-9 but we'll have a lot of fun watching this new offense develop.
    GATA!

    Wow, I'm sure this has already been posted and talked about, but ESPN FPI has us only favored in 4 games and a projected record of 5-7 (rounded).

    7-5

    losses to Auburn, Indiana, App, Troy, pitiful loss to one of South Alabama, Ga State, Coastal.

    close win against 9-3 UCF in the Cure Bowl. Promising momentum headed into 2018.

    I'd have to believe that our situation would rate as the 'perfect storm' in making us the proverbial 'sleeper' relative to any computerized analysis as well as anyone rating us who doesn't REALLY look into the intangibles and potential upside on us. That said, I'm surprised we're even this high, because I imagine we look like a train wreck on paper (bad season, lost starters, youth, etc.). I view us kind of like a knuckle baller coming off an injury-riddled season. No reason for anyone to put money on us, but if we get a little of our mojo going, the sky's the limit.

    I agree. I'm not predicting crazy amounts of success, but even a small step forward in offensive production would make for an improvement of 1-2 wins over last season. Throw in the usual knocks given to teams with lots of new coaches and the general difficulty computers seem to have with properly evaluating option-heavy teams and there is a lot of potential silver lining for those who want to find it.

    Sad thing is the FPI is a terrible indicator for any team not in the SEC.

    I haven't checked Bill Connelly's ranking yet, but his analysis is typically a lot better, especially for teams at our level.

    I think we will go 6-6 in the regular season.

    I picked the minimum we should yearly expect out of a GS football team, 7-5. Anything less is unexceptionable.
