Predict Your Team's Record

Recommended Posts

I mean there is hoping for the best and then there is just being homerish. You guys are not going to beat LSU in SEC country. It just isn't going to happen. I know you guys are talented defensively but I hate to break it to you...LSU is still better on that side of the ball. 10-2 is laughable when for the 3rd year in a row you still don't have a QB that can put up consistent points.

So he gave UNC two more wins and you gave NC State two more wins. How is his prediction more "homerish" than yours? You're basing your opinion on the hope that NC State's defense will get better, and he's basing his on the hope that UNC's offense will get better. UNC was only a couple of plays (and a QB) away from 10 wins last year, so I don't see how 10-2 is any more unrealistic than NC State going 7-5.

Also, the LSU game is in Atlanta, which is ACC country just as much as it is SEC country, if not more so. UNC won at VT on a Thursday night last year, and there is no way that crowd in Atlanta will be anymore hostile than that.

Favorable schedule for ASU this year with most of their tougher conference games at home. I think they can run the table in the regular season (outside of UF, obviously) but I wouldn't be surprised to see a loss on their record headed to Gainesville.

Well, your team gets on ESPN all the time, gets top recruits, gets multiple players into the NFL, and gets Heisman trophy winners. Hardly a reason to be sad...:)

True but I would still kill to have a unquestionable champion every year. The champion should be decided on the field not by businessmen in suits....

Could be a little homerish , but VT will have a offense that hasnt been this good since 2004-2005 Sugar Bowl year. And of course the Defense is always solid.

So he gave UNC two more wins and you gave NC State two more wins. How is his prediction more "homerish" than yours? You're basing your opinion on the hope that NC State's defense will get better, and he's basing his on the hope that UNC's offense will get better. UNC was only a couple of plays (and a QB) away from 10 wins last year, so I don't see how 10-2 is any more unrealistic than NC State going 7-5.

How is predicting that NCSU goes 7-5 anything like predicting UNC to go 10-2? I predicted that NC State would lose to essentially every good team we play with the exception of Cincy at home. We lost to FSU last year on the last play of the game...I predicted we lose to them again this year. Boston College is not that much better than us but we have trouble with them every year, so I predicted a loss.

10-2 means that Carolina is essentially a top 10 football team...which is a big stretch. It means that they are going to beat national title contenders like LSU, Miami, and VT. Everyone is high on Carolina's defense but the fact of the matter is that teams like LSU have defenses that good EVERY SINGLE YEAR. They were better statistically than you guys last year and yet every Carolina fan is saying "we can beat LSU because our defense is dominant," while not realizing that their defense is just as good or maybe even better.

Poor defense and the inability to tackle a runner in open field has been a staple of Tom O'Briens teams since he's been in Raleigh. I see no reason why we should expect that to change for his final season at the helm of this team.

Well damn, UNC beat two out of those three last year, and I watched LSU struggle to score points against Louisiana Tech last year. Why shouldn't I believe that UNC can match up with them?

I'm more worried about their ability to beat the teams they're supposed to beat, like VA and NC State, but I believe they will do that this year too.
