actually I'd say that looks pretty accurate(or as accurate as you can place all schools in July).

I think LSU is too low though for both wins and conference/division chances. I say switch LSU and A&M then give 0.2 wins to LSU from Auburn's prediction.

It's because their schedule is a cakewalk. As easy as it gets for an sec team anyways. 4 cupcake OOCs, vandy, and ky. Add in the arky is way down and that's basically 7 auto wins

I don't think we are. Heck, we are probably only the 5th best team in the west possibly.

ESPN should know better, though. The Joker said our win ceiling was 7 this year. Silly EPSN..... 8.5...... pshh.

I love that the Ole Miss fanbase already has their talking point on if we are successful this year. It'd be b/c our OOC's suck and Arky and Vandy are down. (Both of which OM play too)

:trollface:

Facts are facts. We have 5 auto wins. Or at least should be. Playing Boise instead of Tulane is risky

If you aren't it'll be because Merlin put too many miles on Dakota.

Having looked at State's schedule, if y'all don't get 9 wins this year, the whole coaching staff, save Merlin, should be fired.

Even if Dak Prescott is the next Tebow they're not even the fifth best team in the west, let alone the conference.

Are you stupid. We'll be better than Arky, AM, and at least as good as OM.
