This will be the third year in a row that I make my OFFICIAL WAY TOO SPECIFIC PREDICTION thread. The previous versions are linked at the bottom. So please, if you want to look stupid next offseason, and only care to post in ONE MORE prediction thread, make it this one. And please, no cushy ranges.
"I predict that we'll go between 15-0 and 7-6. Prove me wrong."
That is terrible, and you are doing this wrong. Give me an exact total. While you are at it, give me other totals. Other facts that we can glean at the start of the 2015 season. Will Funchess get the Braylon dropsies? Will he sprout a third arm and catch everything? Does Shane start at any point, and why? Does our offensive line congeal? Over/under on sleeved days for Brady Hoke: 2.5. Headsetted days: 4.5. How about the B1G East? Are we in a ridiculously good division? PSU? OSU? MSU? Maryland? Yada yada yada...
Our winner from 2012, Logan88, was again dead on with this opinion:
No, I too am not nearly as high on NWestern as the media. Their schedule next year is much more difficult than it was last season. I know that they are returning a lot of good players and I think they will do their usual job of scaring the sh&t out of just about every team they play but for all of that they will still finish no better than 8-4 in the regular season IMO.
Last year, Logan's worst case scenario sans the bowl came true, as his floor was set at 7-5. I anxiously await his verdict on this season... hopefully there is no mention of 26 of anything for -26 of another thing.
The person with the best prognostication from last year? Not THE KNOWLEDGE. I think that guy is dead. Actually, nobody was pessimistic enough to be correct, so I am awarding the 2013 win to Wolfman, for this:
I predict Al Borges will not be retained for the 2014 season.
I'll admit that I was still on Team Borges at the beginning of the year. I will post my thoughts below. Meanwhile, please peruse the previous two WAY TOO SPECIFIC PREDICTION threads.
Because I want to get as many predictions as possible, and because I know you people are tired of these threads and just want football to start, if you post in this thread, feel free to print out the image located below and display it proudly somewhere by your desk. It will make you feel good about yourself, and will make others gravitate towards you.
