If the D-line doesn't get some deer antler, I think 4 or 5 losses is probable.

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

I'm going with the best case prediction..

8-4 to 9-3.

Losses to A&M, Mizzou, Florida or Clemson or both...i also think UK could be our UT from last year.

Worst case...

5-7 to 6-6

I trust Spurrier to right the ship, but I think that we won't have the kinks worked out before we play UGA. I'm saying 8-4. 9-3 If Florida ends up having a bad season again. The plus side of a season like that is that we may end up relegated to the Belk Bowl, so I would be able to see them play here in Charlotte.

1-11.

I'm just kidding. Did you see Vandy play last night? 2-10.

I see wins over Kentucky, Vandy, Furman, and South Alabama. Based on one game from last night, every other game is a toss up or loss.

Does anyone else we play except maybe Auburn have an OL even close to as good as aTm's? Not that I know of. I don't think we can fairly judge our DL based on this outing.

I predicted 9-3 before the season and I think that's still possible -- it's just gonna be harder. To that end, 8-4 is probably more realistic, but I don't think our floor is anything worse than 7-5.

I'm not sold on Auburn. They barely squeaked out wins on last minute miracles in 3-4 games. I think they used up their luck. If Thompson improves his accuracy, it's a winnable game. With a lot of starts and in game experience, that could happen. I don't think it will, but maybe.

I know Florida's troubles last year were injury based, but I still don't see them winning this game. They were meh in 2012 and underperformed (played poorly for their talent level) and overachieved (won games they shouldn't have due to sloppy opponent play).


I say 8-4 at worst, probably 9-3. 10-2 not out of the question depending on how well Georgia does at replacing their QB.

We don't look like a good football team right now. I can't see more than 8 wins until we show we can play defense.

8-4, 7-5 No way we lose to ecu. Georgia, Auburn are probably losses looking at their strengths. I think UT, Missouri, Florida and Clemson are toss ups but I refuse to believe we will lose all 4. Maybe after seeing us play again and some of those teams I will change my mind.

I predict that half of this junk here is just that . We got beat by a better team last night who I think could have beaten just about anyone they played . Is the 3-4 the base D , NO! Do fans tuck tail and whine about the first game ...Hell yes!!!! Wanna will all games you play? Then find another sport. We may win 10 we may lose 10 but you trust we can get some of the issues fixed or you find another team to pull for. My predictions ....some of our fans are just ledge jumpers and like me don't coach this college football team .My prediction is we win some , lose some and in between people will bitch, gripe and complain. I'll let the HBC answer all the other prediction threads. peace /out

Based only on what I saw last night then I would have to call it this way. 6-6.

I would love to be wrong and see us at 1 loss and ATM undefeated in the SECCG...then I would feel much better. Hey, it is still possible...

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

I'm not a coach and never claimed to be, just a lifelong Carolina fan with an opinion. I didn't like the decision to switch to the 3-4 from the start. To me if it ain't broke don't fix it, hell don't even mess with it. That's as bad as I've seen our defense play in a LONG time! I hope it gets worked out and our guys don't lose another one, but right now I think probably 7-5. Damn I hate saying that and you better believe just like today I'll fly my Gamecock flag and wear my Gamecock shirts, hats, etc. with pride until I'm no longer breathing. 1-10, 0-11, 7-5, 6-6, 11-2, 11-2, 11-2, and whatever happens this season it doesn't matter... GO COCKS!!!

i expect your O to pick it up after Davis gets over his injury. we were fortunate to get up big early and took you out of your offensive routine. i dont expect you to face any other Os like ours this year (inc clemson and dont think ECU has the horses).

I will guess 8-4, maybe 9-3. Lose to UGA and Auburn; maybe FL or CU. Since SC has lately improved as the season progresses, it will be harder for FL and CU.

(i had this posted in smack but i think it fits pretty good in this thread too)

I heard SVP say something interesting today which some of you Cock fans might not be remembering. (i didn't think of it)

Remember the shellacking that you gave UGA a few years ago in Willy B and they ended up being about 1 play away from playing for a NC? Season isn't over yet.. Sure your team looked like shit but it is the first game. I don't think Clemson was as bad as we looked against FSU last year either

I don't make predictions.

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

No one here seems to remember anything...

Our linebackers were crap last year and then by mid season started turning things around to where they became our strength.

Dylan threw for 366 yards with 4 touchdowns.

Ard kicked every kickoff deep into the end zone.

Wilds should be our feature back. He has the willingness to take the hits and the dude has moves -- and he's virtually the same speed as Davis. His ability to catch it as a safety valve could be incredibly valuable because he really gets a lot of yards after the catch.

Damiere is coming into his own and he and Dylan are finally getting their timing down.

Nick Jones is the ABMOD (Ankle-biting Midget of Death). He is a player, period.

Pharoh didn't get as many chances to be a game changer, but he will.

Blocking wasn't bad. Pass protection was pretty decent. Run blocking (as I expected) was inconsistent, but again, this was our first game against a good opponent.

We just got our hats handed to us by a gimmick offense. How many more do we play this year? None, except Clemson and their "hurry up" hasn't caught us off guard in over five years. The point is, that game will have ZERO impact on our SEC east opportunity.

I honestly believe that Texas A&M will win the natty this year. They've got more 5-star recruits than you can shake a stick at and they are recruiting better than Alabama when it comes to filling needs. We can laugh that off and say "oh, those stars don't mean anything" but we'd be bursting our buttons if we had a recruiting class like theirs (we almost do for next year -- if we right the ship and don't cause them all to bail on us).

Last year, our defensive line and linebackers looked minor league for at least three games. Then things began to change, right around the time the two coaches nearly got in a fist fight. We need that kind of intensity. We should be ashamed of ourselves, but someone has to evaluate the 3-4 and honestly say "we stick with it because we can make it work" or else "let's ditch it before we tank the season".

In the game last night we didn't look like we had a clue how to run the 3-4.
