Default Now that the OC is for sure...

What's a realistic expectation for next year? Another 8-4 year? 9+ regular season wins?

After a quick glance at the schedule, I'd say we should have a 10-2 or 9-3 season.

From the 3-9 to Muschamp Yr 1, he doubled the wins. 200%

From the 6-7, to the 9-4, Muschamp Yr 2 increased winning by 50%

If the trend continues, winning should be increased approximately 12% in Muschamp Yr 3, which would result in a 10 or 11 win season.

9 wins as the minimum. This is THE BEST schedule I can remember back 20 years or so.

3 non-conference easy (should be) W's. Vanderbilt and UK (I swear to all that is holy I will explode if we lose again). A home stretch of Mizzou, TAMU, bye week, and UT. 2 out 3 at minimum and should finally beat TAMU.

That's 8 already.

At Ole Miss--9 wins if we keep a straight head.

That's not even counting a UF team that is in transition (Please don't be good yet), UGA 2nd game of the season adjusting to life post Chubb/Michel (imo, they would've lost 2-3 games this year without), and Clemson (who knows?)

If we somehow have a Top40 Total Offense, we could win 11+.

If we have a middle of the pack SEC offense, probably 8-11 wins.

If we have an offense like this year or something close to it, probably 7-9 wins.

I think the floor really is 7 wins next year. I think we have an excellent shot at 9 wins though. uga, clemson and aTm are the only games I think we're less than 50% to win.

Default Re: Now that the OC is for sure...

For a way too early look.
Coastal-W (and I hope we play a bunch of in-state kids)
Georgia-L
Marshall-W
at Vanderbilt-W
at Kentucky-W (please God)
Missouri-W
Texas A&M-Toss/leaning to loss
Tennessee-Win
at Ole Miss-Toss up being a road game
at Florida-Tough, Mullen should turn them around quick. Toss
UT-Chat-W
Clemson-Toss.

Bare minimum...7 wins...any lower and that is a disappointment.

Not a lot of proven DL depth, LB depth is shallow on the OLB, and DB will see some new faces.

O should be good. QB, RB, WR all return a lot of potential. OL should improve...TE is a question mark.

I'm thinking 9 wins next year at this early juncture....though I was wrong this year predicting a 6-6 year....so 12 wins are coming ;-)

I do think UGA will see a drop...I expect a few guys to leave early on D.
Will be looking for new production without Chubb and Michel....but I think Swift and Zamir White will do fine with the Oline they are building over there.

Smart looks like he is building a monster at Georiga...they have always recruited well, but now they are winning big games.

It wasn't just Chubb/Michel, they had a ton of seniors come back and contribute big time on that team this year. They will still be loaded, but that can't be overlooked

I agree, I think Smart inherited a solid team and got the breaks this year where Richt for whatever reason wasn't able to.

And speaking of reloading--I know Swift is really good, and White looks good on paper, but you don't get talent like Michel and Chubb on the same team together ever. It just doesn't happen.

They combined for 31 TDs 2500 yrds on the ground (9 TDs rushing for the rest of the team). As good as Fromm has looked, and he's looked solid, the team is those two players. Leading WR is also a senior. And losing 3 senior DBs.

Next year is when we see if Smart is worth the hype; right now he's managed to drive the Porsche that Richt left in the garage.

Gotta be careful with 2018. I'd say we overachieved this year with 9 wins.

I'd say we should get 8 again regular season. I think I predicted either 6 or 7 this year.

Its really hard to say how the new coaches at UT and UF will impact those teams. I don't think they are solid Ws. But if those teams are improved and we beat them we are also much improved, so says something there. No reason not be optimistic I guess at this point. long way to go with injuries etc though...

Muschamp has increased the win total by 3 wins each season, so we can expect a 12-2 season in 2018 and the first-ever 15-0 season in 2019. In 2020, the CFP will need to expand to 32 teams.

Muschamp at Florida
7-6
11-2
4-8
6-5

Muschamp at USC
6-7
9-4
?

It would take an epic fail and a ton of injuries (like he had at Florida) for us to go 4-8 in 2018.


As someone said above, this is the easiest schedule I can ever remember in the SEC. Even if you lose UGA, Clemson and a few tossup games, 8-4 looks very reasonable, with another Outback Bowl appearance.

Just FYI Zamir is rehabbing a torn acl, doubt he makes much of an impact w swift Holyfield ahead already on depth chart. James cook may also be in mix at RB. But Uga loses a lot along lb corp and oline.
