21. South Carolina

In a thinner SEC East, the Gamecocks have a good chance to win double-digit games behind third-year starter Jake Bentley at quarterback.

Double digit wins is the natural progression. That, and playing a competitive game with Clemson - a win would be even better, but it is at their place and that will be tough. But at least the ACC refs will be gone.

UGA loses a lot, the game is at Willy B, and it will be early enough that they will have a lot of players suspended. Win, and we are in the SEC East driver's seat, with essentially a two game lead on UGA (one game up plus the tiebreaker advantage.

You know Boom wants to take Kirby down. Git dem hairy dawgs!

I think we win against UGA going away actually. This is the game that will make the country take notice. It's dumb because its not that crazy of a prediction considering our progression and UGA's losses, but thats how it will be viewed, as some sort of huge upset.

This will come down to how good of an OC McClendon ends up being. I think we made a good hire that was bolstered by the fact we brought in Werner, if that ends up being the case we're a legit contender for the East and I like our odds against UGA in week 2 quite a bit. If it's more of the same on offense I think we'll manage to win a number of games but we won't be a legit contender for the East. I'm high on McClendon so I'm thinking contender.

If the offensive line can provide the protection and run blocking we should do well. We have some people there to replace. Then if the offense can put some points on the board we should be fine and give Jawja a run for their money.
The defense will be able to do enough to keep us in all of our games so to me it is all on the offense this year.

According to this prediction, we will be 7-1 in conference. If we beat Georgia then it will be 8-0. So, the worst we would be is 11-1: beat clemsux and it 12-0. Why not?? We can all dream this time of the year.

Don't forget that we played UGA later in the year, without Deebo and Rico. Just having those two will help. UGA loses a lot on D - they will have talent but not much experience, and we will have a veteran Offensive unit. If BMac is close to being the real deal, we will get some points against UGA.

Kirby is a pretty good defensive coach. He'll have them ready.

#21 with a 9-3 record sounds about right to me. That would translate to another trip to Florida at New Years. I think 2019 is when we make a real threat to the SEC Championship Game.

Georgia is Week 2 will tell us a lot. Even if it ends in a loss, it will give us somewhat of an idea of what this team will be.
