Thread: Preseason Mags

  1. #1

    Default Preseason Mags

    I saw that the Athlon and Lindy's preseason mags are out. I can't remember which, but I know one of them had us finishing 4th in the east, and another had our predicted record at 4-8. Nothing real groundbreaking in the breakdown of our teams, granted I just skimmed through quickly.

    One of them had Kidd Brewer as the best gameday atmosphere in the Sun Belt. Blech.

    The Phil Steele magazine will be out in a few weeks. I tend to trust his analysis a bit more than the others. I think he predicted a five or six-win season for us last year, but I also distinctly remember him writing that our offensive numbers took such a dip in 2016 that - if it wasn't a fluke - the departure of the 2016 seniors and the tough schedule had one of his models spitting out a 3-9 projection for us.

    Welp, we did not see a lot of seniors depart and we defintely do not have a tough schedule, so I am really looking forward to seeing his analysis in a few weeks.

    Let them think 4-8. Hard for outsiders to see the quality of the rebuild we did. It's pretty impressive. We'll be a good sport and autograph the ball after we run it through you a few times...

    If we go 6-6, it'll be one of the greatest coaching performances in GS history.

    That's a little extreme. If you want to say 8-4 then I might be willing to agree. But going .500 with this schedule and this roster and a HC that got 6 games to knock the rust off last year won't be some kind of great coaching job IMO. Much less one of the greatest in GS history.

    I dunno. If Lunsford is anywhere close to Stowers or Sewak, we likely go 6-6. Erk and PJ easily win 8 games with this roster.

    If we don't hit .500, I'll be worried about Lunsford's chances for long-term success. A good coach hits 6 wins.

    Unless there are some pleasant surprises I think we have a 4 win roster.

    We DEFINITELY don’t have a 4 win roster.

    Man, we've lowered our standards the last two years. 6 wins have never been acceptable at GS.
