I expect to win 6 or 7 games. I am thinking 6 is the number though.
I believe that our goal should be for 8 wins. I'll say this too, 6/7 wins is a good coaching performance, if we manage 8 then I'll say that is a great coaching performance.
“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Rutgers in Jersey will be tough. I'm not sure who they are getting back, but they are no slouch for sure.
Miss State is basically returning their two deep on the Oline along with Russell and their backs. They are losing all 3 starting WRs, starting TE, 3/4 of their defensive secondary(including Banks), a LB, and a DT. Their offense should be pretty good. They should be able to run the ball and protect Russell. However, can their defense reload? Will our defense be improved enough late in the year to contain them. Should be a good game.
Ole Miss in Oxford will be tough. That defense was very young this year and most of their playmakers are coming back.
I have seen absolutely nothing to make me think we will be able to beat USCe easily. I don't buy into the "we've owned them in the past" argument. I'll check out their roster and see what it looks like. We could win the game, but they are a good team and well coached. They probably could have played for the East this year, but again got screwed by their brutal schedule while GA benefited from a weak one.
All depends on QB, which is completely unknown. We've been pretty dang spoiled with Ryan and Tyler. Looking at the schedule, I'd say 5 wins. If Allen (or whoever) exceeds my expectations, maybe 7.
