PChamp119 96 Posted July 31, 2006 Share Posted July 31, 2006 I ended up making my predictions on how each team would do throughout the season game-by-game. I decided to make a story during the season/post-season on these predictions. Just thought I'd share them with you guys. Alabama will come out slow against Hawaii, breaking in a new quarterback. They will win a close game and many will laugh thinking they will be an easy target, only to be surprised later by upsetting Florida in Gainesville. Better than the experts thought, Bama fans will be excited for 2007 after a successful rebuilding year and losing closely to top programs LSU and Auburn because all their tough games (except Auburn) will be at home. Baby face Shula will have a lot on his shoulders as the Bama fans continue to fail to look at today and focus on the future (or past) Arkansas will be an improved team, but not the surprise team everyone expected. A win over Spurrier will keep Nutt his job and fans excited for next season with Mustain taking control of the offense Tennessee will be an improved team with the addition of David Cutcliffe. People will talk about Fulmer's resignation following a tough 1-2 start after the loss to Florida. Tennessee will go on a run and everyone will say Phil and UT are back after upsets against UGA and Bama only to falter to Spurrier and LSU. 8-4 is better than 5-6 after beating Vandy UGA will appear to defend their SEC Crown as a serious contender as critics wonder how Mark Richt has done it again. With no proven QB, they will fall to Tennessee's defense and people will wonder if Richt will continue losing to the Gators until the end of time. Losing at Auburn will cap off a disappointing second half of the season, but keeping the games close will have fans excited for next year Steve Spurrier will enter the season with high hopes thanks to his rendition of Blake Mitchell, only for the 'ol Ball Coach to leave Death Valley pondering how many more years he can stay in Columbia and start looking for a replacement. Beating Fulmer when Phil thinks things are going his way will keep him smiling Beating Vanderbilt again and showing slight improvement from last year and being only 1 game away from a bowl game will bring a large debate to Rich Brooks future. Improving, but is this the best they will be? After a slow start, at the end of the season, Brooks will ask himself "How did I lose to Ole Miss?" Vanderbilt will be back to being Vanderbilt again and people will finally see that Bobby Johnson was just lucky last year with Jay Cutler. Nobody can win at Vandy, don't feel bad Bobby Urban Meyer will start the same as he did last year with a win over Tennessee. After being upset again by Joe Kine's tenacious defense, fans will wonder if Meyer's offense in the SEC is a joke. He will turn that around with an upset over LSU to get the fans excited again, only to fall to Tuberville's defense and unable to figure out Borges offense in Auburn. Florida will be forgotten from the SEC East race until they win in Jacksonville thanks to UGA's slide and win out to head to Atlanta. Chris Leak will have a great season, similar to Jason Campbell of 2004, but without a ring Sylvestor Croom will learn that green is the only color that matters when he can't fill in the seats. He picked up a devastating program, but those in Starkville will give him only one more year to show improvement. Les Miles will have no clue what to do with his quarterback controversy. He will quickly learn that last year he was able to take advantage of some fortunate opportunities, opportunities that will not arise this year. Not having an answer for Urban Meyer's offense in Gainesville and not having Vaughn miss 5 FGs will keep the Bayou Bengals out of Atlanta. The critics will continue to wonder if Les Miles was the right hire, even after consecutive 10+ wins seasons Brent Schaeffer will not win in his opening debut as a Rebel thanks to not knowing the Ed Orgeron offense yet. The Rebels will barely defeat Missouri and perform well against Kentucky, having fans thinking Ole Miss is back with lil Vick, only to be embarrassed by Wake Forest. They'll beat Vandy and they will wonder if Ed is head coaching material. The only excuse I could see being used is if Brent is hurt in the Wake Forest game as to why Ole Miss can't beat a .500 team Auburn will end the season-opener (or even non-conference game) jinx versus BCS Conference teams with an opening win. Having the only proven returning starting quarterback (without controversy), will give the Tigers an advantage above all other SEC teams. Answering calls to a good offensive line will make this the last year critics mentioning the O-Line as a pre-season question mark for years to come. The running game will give ease to the breaking in of new wide receivers. After an early win versus LSU, the schedule is nice with not having back-to-back tough games as they will have ample time to solve Meyer's offense, keep the Dawg's sliding down a hill and having more talent (not to mention out-coaching) in Tuscaloosa. Beating Meyer again in Atlanta will send the Tigers to a major BCS Bowl, but where? Auburn 12-0 8-0 LSU 10-2 6-2 Alabama 9-3 5-3 Arkansas 7-5 4-4 Ole Miss 5-7 3-5 Miss State 3-9 0-8 Florida 10-2 6-2 Georgia 9-3 5-3 Tennessee 8-4 5-3 South Carolina 7-5 4-4 Kentucky 5-7 2-6 Vanderbilt 3-9 0-8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
