  • Which games do you see the Hogs winning in the rest of their schedule?
  • #2 by 3kgthog on 10 Sep 2017
  • Coastal Carolina and NMSU. This offense will find it hard to beat anyone else. The defense can't play lights out for 4 quarters. They will get tired just like they did Saturday.
  • #3 by jkstock04 on 10 Sep 2017
  • We don't have a great gauge because we haven't played a conference game yet...but i will say with confidence if we can't beat a hapless and drowning A&M team we will not make it to a bowl game this year.

    Hard to argue that at all.

  • Sumlin's dumpster fire, NMSU and Coastal are the only games I can say now we stand a good chance in.  When I look at the rest, we may pull one upset, but improved as the defense is, our line play and receivers are so bad, I can't see us keeping up with the other offenses on our schedule.

  • A&M - 60% chance of win
    NMSU - 99% chance of win
    SCar - 30% chance of win
    Bama - 1% chance of win
    Auburn - 15% chance of win
    Ole Miss - 40% chance of win
    Coastal - 99% chance of win
    LSU - 5% chance of win

    I’m going to reserve judgment on the defensive improvement. TCU left a lot of points on the field because they didn’t execute. I saw the D get pushed around quite a bit on D and we haven’t even started getting to the teams with more talent on the schedule. Is it better? Maybe. Improved enough to win games? We’ll see.

    Oh, we have a gauge alright! It's easy to see that this season is already in the toilet. You can tell by the performance on the field so far and by the clueless coaching staff lack of adjustments and bad decisions. 4 or 5 wins max.

    True, it's hard to know what to think about the new defense just yet.  On the one hand, the defense had only given up two touchdowns 57 minutes into the game, while receiving no help at all from the offense.  On the other hand, the defense failed to get off the field on 10 out of 14 third downs.

    This defense is better than last year.  It usually takes about half a season to install so I see them as a bit ahead of schedule.  I'm not saying they are great, but for 57 minutes while the offense couldn't find its rear with a flashlight, they kept us in the game.  Last year, this game would have been out of hand by the start of the 4th quarter.  Thus, I call them improved.

  • 7 wins
  • #16 by Bacon_Bitz on 11 Sep 2017
  • 7, maybe 8, wins.  A&M is a must win for sure though.  TCU needs to be the bottoming out we have seen in the past few years, and we need a clutch win at Jerry World similar to the Tennessee win two years ago.  Only sure loss is Bama.  Very likely losses are Auburn and LSU.  Likely loss is Miss St if they keep it up all year, and maybe S Car.

    without "lights out" improvement in ALL facets of the offense/special teams which would include the Coaching staff and their responsibilities......2 more wins is all I see.  There are some bad teams on the schedule but without our offense, we can't beat any of them.
  • #18 by hogcard1964 on 11 Sep 2017
  • Guys: A & M is awful.  Has anyone watched them?

    They blew a 34 point 2nd half lead while being +3 in turnover margin and running for nearly 400 yards.

    This is also a team that needed a late 4th quarter drive to beat FCS Nicholls State with a +2 turnover margin.

    There's no chance we could lose to them. They're awful.

    Just watch.   It could be the ugliest game we've had to endure with BB as our coach.

    That's just the thing though; they were up by 34 points over UCLA.  Do you think we are a better team than UCLA?  Much as I hate it, A&M will stomp the hell out of us even without their other qb.
  • #21 by HamIAm on 11 Sep 2017
  • I'm not following this math. Of 119 members voting 113 think we will beat New Mexico State. What is the 26% in parenthesis?  It's sure not the percent of voters who think we will win the game. 113 of 119 is 94%. 

    Are you saying you only think there is a 26% chance we beat New Mexico State?

    Same problem for all the other games.
  • #22 by 010HogFan on 12 Sep 2017
  • Everyone saying we have a 99% chance of beating NM St is dead wrong. I'd put our chances 60/40 maybe. Their QB is one of the best in the country this year. Definitely could be the next Toledo fiasco. As far as SEC games, we might be able to win 2 out of 3 between A&M/Mizzou/Ole Miss. Besides Coastal, I don't see any other guaranteed wins.

    It's the default formula for a Hogville poll.  Divide the number voting "win" by Total Members Voting and you'll get the projected probability for a win in each game.
  • #25 by DLUXHOG on 12 Sep 2017
  • If they want it, 10 wins is realistic...
  • #26 by goodguytex on 12 Sep 2017
  • Outside of the rest of our non conference games, I'm not ready to predict how this team does in conference play.

    We all need to look at how this team responds in the next game. We need to see what kind of heart and character this team has. Will they fight, come together, overcome and win?? If they fight, as a team, come together and beat the Saggies, I think we can have a decent year.

    Exotic blitzes will give us fits.  If we don't run the ball we will lose.

    Im now referring to that game as the "Hot Seat Bowl" or "Meltdown Bowl" and its honestly made it much more fun to think about.
  • #31 by Großer Kriegschwein on 12 Sep 2017
  • The real "meltdown" bowl will be Ole Miss. We lose that one he just needs to walk home.
  • #32 by goodguytex on 12 Sep 2017
  • I'm reminded of the movie "The Replacements"  when Gene Hackman is asked how his team can come back and win.

    He tapped his chest and said "Heart..... Miles and miles of heart." That's what the team needs to find within itself.... Heart... To fight and play together and win.

  • #34 by bondhue on 12 Sep 2017

    Texas A&M          45-13  L
    NM State             28-24 W
    South Carolina     31-14 L
    Alabama               L
    Auburn                 L
    Mississippi           24-21 W
    Coastal                38-14 W
    LSU                     38-7 in the 3rd, LSU  whatever they want at the end
    MS State             21-14 L
    Missouri              48-21 L
  • #35 by TheRazorback500 on 12 Sep 2017

    Probably about dead spot on.  These board members who believe in 7 wins possible......folks, 6 wins and The Independence Bowl would be Heaven-Sent....truly.

  • #40 by hogcard1964 on 13 Sep 2017
  • They're awful for sure, but we are more awful!

    They blew a 44-10 lead in 3rd quarter and the following week they almost lost to Nicholls State.  They will not beat us.
  • #41 by DeltaBoy on 13 Sep 2017
  • We lose to BAMA, LSU and Auburn
  • #42 by HotlantaHog on 13 Sep 2017
  • 7 wins

    But that treats the TCU loss as something of an anomaly that Hogs will learn from and make some corrections from. The Texas A&M game should be a nice win -- Texas A&M this year is pretty terrible. If the Hogs somehow lose on a neutral field to A&M, it will be hard to expect many other wins in the SEC other than maybe Mizzou.

    There's teams we should always beat, or beat 9 out of 10 years. But somehow, of recent we don't.  South Carolina, Ole Miss, Miss St., Missouri, Texas A & M and Kentucky come to mind.

  • Everyone calling the A&M game a win thinks they will get worse or not improve between now and when we play them but we will get markedly better?

    Wasn't it their first game without their starting QB?  Also probably hungover from that UCLA letdown.  Yes they blew the lead to UCLA but they were doing something right the first 2.5 quarters of the game to build that lead.    They managed to neutralize the QB for the majority of the game (majority being over 1/2).  Is our offense the way it stands today going to pose even close to that potential? 

    Watch what A&M does against ULL if they just look decent and win it means they are getting incremental improvement week to week.  Yes we all know BB's record after a bye week.  We've also seen what kind of eggs this team can lay.  It's a toss up game at best.

    The only non toss ups are CC and NMSU.  And if we lose to A&M by more than 1 score I'd watch out for that NMSU game.
  • #46 by GunnerHawg70 on 13 Sep 2017

    Wins: TAMU, NMSU, SC, Ole Piss, UCC, Mizzou
  • #47 by HawgTrough on 13 Sep 2017
  • I think we lose a heartbreaker to aTm and follow it up with a loss to NMSU. And then we'll be the lovable losers trying to upset someone the rest of the year. I'll watch or be at every game though. Ugh

    Thats just way too high of expectations. Missouri and Kentucky have a winning record vs Arkansas. TAMU has became a different program as an SEC member. The mississippi schools are 50/50.

    NMSU gave Arizona State a lot of trouble.  It is not a guarantee, especially if the A&M game gets out of hand again like last year.

    Are you saying if I'm the only person to vote and I vote win in all 10 games it will show a 10% chance of a win for that game? Doing a quick check on the actual numbers that appears to be the case

    The post didn't ask which is the best bet for a win, it asked which GAMES (plural) a person thinks we will win.  That is one bizarre way to conduct a poll and a totally worthless number.
