I do not mind it so much.


It is not just that we had a fantastic step forward this season in terms of wins. These people absolutely knew that we would win 8-9 games and are here to tell the people that thought that we win less than that (and logically more than that as well) that they are stupid.

Coming back and bumping threads like this serves to say, "I am happy that I guessed right."

It would be interesting to go back and look at the reasons they gave as to why they made the predictions of 9 wins and how we would get there. Too bad they choose not to quote those predictions in totality.

True be told, for most of them at least, it was a lucky guess AT BEST.

For me, it’s about calling out the negative and toxic posters who are legion on this site and pointing out how wrong their so-called “realism” turned out to be. I mean, the OP predicted 4 wins. FOUR. Fu** that motherfu**ing noise.

Personally, I would say anyone predicting 4 wins is as bad as anyone that picked 12, but I think most of us expected in the 6-8 win range. I'm happy that we did even better than that, but we do all know that there are numerous wins that could have easily gone the other way (LaTech and Michigan quickly come to my mind).

Fortunately we won almost all of our close games, but some seasons those games will go the other way.

9 wins is a very solid season for us and I hope we continue to improve, but we do have a lot of room for improvement still. We didn't fire a coach in a 9 win season because we were content with where we are and where we are headed.

As for the “sunshine pumping” lunatics like myself who actually thought we could win 9 games...salutations, brothers.

Here’s to 10* wins in ‘18.

I said 8-4 and caught hell for saying it.

15-0 Natty.


I'm not gonna bust the OP's chops too much, many of the "experts" picked similar results.

I said 7 as the roof as well.

But that was because I had no idea that Both Tenn. and Florida were going to tank so badly.
And I wasn't including bowl games either since I had no way of knowing who we would get. Thank goodness it wasn't UCF again!

We always catch TAMU at the pinnacle of their season. 2014 they beat our ass in week 1 and then immediately went downhill. 2015 we went 3-9, and lost in a back and forth shootout. That 2015 game was the one time we played A&M when they sucked, but the problem was we sucked a lot more. 2016 we catch them the game before they start tanking and lose a close one, and then this year we controlled the game and then got wrecked in the 4th quarter. and right after that game TAMU just started sucking.


We need to beat them next year. So far I have a lot of confidence in Muschamp, but no matter what happens next season, if we lose to either TAMU or Kentucky I will be questionable. This shit needs to stop. We should be much better than both those teams next year.

Also, I predicted 8 wins, with a hopeful upset against Clemson. Didn't get the Clemson upset, but we still did better than I thought.

Hell, had we not lost to Kentucky and TAMU, both of which we should've smashed, we'd have an 11 win season.

Let's do it next year.

One thing I would very much like next year when we're making season predictions, can everyone please stop counting UK as a definite win. It's not, it hasn't been. That game will be a toss up in Lexington, our fans should go in with that mindset.

You can't automatically assume that had we beaten A&M and KY that we would have won our bowl game. We would have played a much better team than Michigan, which we struggled to beat.

We could have definitely been 10-3 though.

Problem is, people don't look at the other side of the equation. We could have also easily lost to NCS, LaTech, Michigan and TN. You're not going to always be fortunate enough to go 6-1 in one possession games.

I went back and forth between 7-5 and 8-4 at the beginning of the season, so I wasn't too far off. I thought we would beat UK and lose to UT, and was unsure about UF. Not bad.

Somtimes, you need a little luck. Plus, those are games that we would have lost a few years ago.

I'll admit I was way off.
6-6 was my prediction.

Think I had NC State as a loss, Kentucky as a win, Florida as a loss and Arky as a tossup.

Glad I was off.
