We usually do one of these every year. Everyone's best chance to be hilariously wrong. The thread where we predict


* Your team's overall record
* Your team's game-by-game record
* Conference Winners
* Conference Standings
* Playoff Participants
* National Champion
* Bowl Games
* Award Winners
* Breakout players (nationally, conference-wide, your team)
* Who gets fired during the season (or after)
* Etc.

Have at it.

vs Clemson - L
vs Arkansas St - W
vs A&M - W
vs LSU - L
vs ULM - W
@ Miss St - L
vs Arky - L
@ OM - L
vs Vandy - W
@ UGA - L
vs Alabama A&M - W
@ Bama - L

5-7, Gus is fired the day after the Iron Bowl.

Also how does a team get 8 home games in a season and start with 5 straight at home?

Whoever Auburn's backup QB is will get at least 3 starts this year.

Hard to predict Bama's entire schedule just because of 2 games. @ Tennessee and @ LSU.

Tennessee should be much better than last year and it's going to be in a hostile environment.

Night games at Death Valley are never a given. Recent success doesn't really matter for that one. And I'm sure Leonard Fournette will want to beat Alabama at least once in his 3 years. And I'm sure he remembers how Alabama derailed his Heisman campaign last year.

But I will say that Alabama's defense is just absurdly loaded. Easily the best in the country and I'd go as far as to say that it really isn't close. More than 2 deep across every position on defense. That alone might be able to carry them to the playoffs.

Tim Williams, Jonathan Allen, Ryan Anderson, Dalvin Tomlinson, Da'Ron Payne, Da'Shawn hand, Josh Frazier, Anfernee Jennings, Terrell Hall, Christian Miller.

That's just the DL and OLB rotation.

Rashaan Evans will be playing ILB more this year. Reuben Foster and Shaun Hamilton are the other ILBs this year. Foster along with Jonathan Allen and Eddie Jackson are going to be leaders of this defense.

Marlon Humphrey, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Anthony Averett, Shyheim Carter, Eddie Jackson, Hootie Jones, Ronnie Harrison, and Deonte Thompson are in the secondary. Tony Brown is suspended to start the year but should rejoin the team in the middle of the season.

However, it's not like the offense is something to ignore. Calvin Ridley, Robert Foster, Ardarius Stewart, OJ Howard, etc. Is there a more talented group of WRs and TEs?

Offensive line should be solid:

Cam Robinson - Lester Cotton - Bradley Bozeman - Ross Pierschbacher - Jonah Williams

A couple new starters and a true freshman at RT who beat out some upperclassmen. The line could be dominant by season's end.

Bo Scarbrough needs to stay healthy. Damien Harris is talented. Both RBs are backed up by true freshmen BJ Emmons and Josh Jacobs. Emmons is absurdly talented. The freshmen RBs won't see meaningful snaps against USC barring injury but they could carve out roles for themselves by the end of the season.

QB is a question. Bateman and Barnett will get to battle it out. Reports about Hurts seem to be wrong. He looked great in camp and scrimmages but Coach Saban has questions about a freshman responding to big moments in games. My guess is that Barnett takes over the job in the USC game.

Of course, sketchy kicker play. Adam Griffith became pretty reliable towards the end of the last year. He's looked sketchy in camp. JK Scott is one of the best punters in the country. Great asset to have.

This is a team that could definitely repeat as national champs.

8-4 regular season, bowl depends on who we face obviously.

Quote:
* Your team's game-by-game record


We will win:

SFA, @ ASU, LT, KU, @ Iowa State, WVU, UT. So that's 7.

We'll also win 1 (or more) of the following (not sure which): @ KState, @ OSU, @ TCU, vs OU, vs BU (neutral site)

Quote:
* Conference Winners


Oklahoma with TCU having an outside shot (I don't believe in Kenny Hill but I do believe in GP).

Quote:
* Conference Standings


Not looking at all the schedules, I'll go:

1) Oklahoma
2) TCU
3) Oklahoma State
4) Texas Tech
5) Texas
6) Baylor
7) West Virginia
8) Kansas State
9) Iowa State
10) Kansas

Quote:
* Playoff Participants


Alabama
Clemson
Notre Dame
Ohio State

Quote:
* National Champion


Clemson

Quote:
* Bowl Games


Hopefully we make one

Quote:
* Award Winners


Patrick Mahomes for Heisman or bust

Quote:
* Breakout players (nationally, conference-wide, your team)


Shane Buechele will play well in that system
Patrick Mahomes will get the respect he deserves nationally after putting up another 5k+ yard season and winning more games
Joel Lanning should play well for Iowa State

Other conferences are irrelevant tbh

Quote:
* Who gets fired during the season (or after)


Kevin Sumlin will get fired after going 4-8 this year

* Etc.

Do you really think we're going to be that terrible? like .500 or lower? I think 6-6 is the absolute floor of the team this year and don't expect to be that bad either. Obviously we have to wait and see but I'm interested in how bad you actualy think we'll be.

I'll say 8-4 for the Longhorns.

I honestly don't know. I don't have a great deal of faith in this coaching staff, but I also know the talent on hand, while green, is legit.

8-4 sounds about right. The way I see it, there are 5 'should wins' on our schedule. They're not gimmies by any means, but games we have a pretty decided advantage on paper at just about every position, sans QB.

- UTEP
- Cal
- Iowa State (I know, I know)
- Baylor
- Kansas

Win those, and go .500 or near .500 for the remaining, which would put us in the 8-4, 9-3 range and I'd consider that a solid season, that'd lay a lot of the groundwork for next year. Those are my expectations anyway.

Jake Bentley, QB. By the end of September, he will be the starting QB for South Carolina. Kid that is supposed to be in his senior year of high school, but wins the job anyway. Plays 3 years and then goes to NFL.

Only way OSU wins the Big 10 is if the kids grow up quick. The talent is there, but inexperience is a huge concern. Then again, I felt the same way about the 2014-2015 team.
