    Good first draft! Will work on my review of this draft after spring and fall practice.
    May want to run a few none perfect situations into the mix.
    By mix I mean what you were drinking in the bye that sent you on dream street!
    Love it but please consider adding 4 more losses but change the Uga to a 30 point beat down of the dawgs in Athens.

    7-8 wins for me...still a young team and the defense will be as bad or worse. Paul will fix the O though. He is a good O coach.

    Alright gut reactions. This will change during Spring and then during Fall camps obviously.

    9/3 at BC(Ireland) - Win
    9/10 Mercer - Win
    9/17 Vandy - Win
    9/22 Clemson - Lose
    10/1 Miami - Win
    10/8 at Pitt - Lose
    10/15 GSU - Win
    BYE
    10/29 Duke - Win
    11/5 UNC - Lose
    11/12 at VPISU - Lose
    11/19 UVA - Win
    11/26 at UGA - Win

    Gut reaction puts us at 8-4 and 4-4 in conference putting us 3rd in Coastal.

    Personally, I like low expectations. Makes each win that much sweeter.

    I'm on the fence about the game at Pitt though and I still have a hard time picking us to beat the school in Athens. Until we beat them more than once ever 5 years I have to pencil it in as a L. I'm at 8-4 overall and 5-3 ACC.

    I would think we'll win 7 or 8 next year due to inexperience among the skill players on O and the process of working new people in on the D. If we hadn't had so many injuries, I'd have said 8 last year and go for the gold in 2016. But we did.

    I'll say this, however; I think we can beat Pitt - we came close last year and we'll be a much better team - and I wouldn't be surprised to see us beat Clempson - we have them in Atlanta and they haven't fared well here - or the Turkies - I don't see them as a better team next year. So why not UNC or Ugag? Maybe on both.

    But all that will be decided when we see who gets on the field next year and how they shape up. If what we are hearing about Cottrell is correct and we can find a BB who gives us a reliable 4 ypc then things could get very encouraging very quickly. But … those are ifs.

    Wow you're an idiot. Here's my prediction

    BC-W
    Mercer-W
    Vandy-W
    Clemson-W
    Miami-W
    Pitt-W
    GSU-W
    Duke-W
    UNC-W
    VT-W
    UVA-W
    UGA-W
    FSU (Charlotte)-We're tied in the 4th quarter with 4 seconds left. Harrison Butker lines up for a 45 yard field goal to win and put us in the CFP. It's blocked. FSU picks up the blocked field goal and runs it all the way back until it's stripped out of the ball carriers hand at the one yard line. We pick it up in the end zone and run it all the way back for a touchdown.
    Ohio State- (Playoff)-W
    Alabama-W

    If you don't believe this is going to happen, you're pretty much stupid.

    We will win some acc games and loose some acc games by a wide margin before we win in athens by a wide margin. Wide =24

    I think we pole-axe dook next year. I know CPJ doesn't like losing to them. I think the growing pains in Athens reach their crescendo when we paste them to the wall. Most convincing win against uga since 2001. Miami worries me. So does Pitt. Weird things happen to clempsumb when they come to Atlanta. Must be all the running water and multiple lanes of traffic that they're not used to. I think we can beat them here.

    I wouldn't ink a W next to Southern just yet. Those boys will surprise a lot of people next year.

    I predict we play a string of games through the fall months. And, those said games lead us to a numerical record of unknown proportions. Thus we look back upon those results in the Months of January - March and determine if everyone involved did all they could to accomplish those results. We then repeat the process for the next season.
