Could be, I thought about putting it at 50/50 but thought I should stay positive.

I think we'll beat:  A&M, Auburn, Mississippi State, and Mizzou.    The games we do lose, will be close.............  He will have a remarkable first year........

OM is a "home" game but we all know that the team has to treat it like a road game. The prep is different...but they will have the crowd advantage of a "home" game.

Colorado State game is spooky.

The location makes it tough (elevation).

However, they lose a ton off the depth chart.

The Rams lose their starting QB, leading rusher, leading receiver, their left tackle, left guard, and center.

Auburn isn't rebuilding, they are reloading(reason Gus stayed). Will be hard to say that we can win on the road in a hostile atmosphere.

I think Colorado State and Ole Miss are 50/50 as well due to first year in new scheme.

I would also move LSU to butt kickin loss, but who knows with Coach O he is an idiot.

That being said it is sure one super favorable schedule for a first year coach.

7-5 or 8-4 is a reasonable expectation with this schedule.

When the schedule was released my fear was BB was going to get one more year, win 7 or 8 games next year and we would be stuck for at least 3 more.

We will probably have some growing pains with new scheme but I still believe we win 7 games at a minimum

I think we win the Red-White game with ease. After that we will need some patience even though we win the next game. After watching some replays of the SMU/TCU game it’s going to be a learning curve for many of the players to adapt to the offense scheme. Coach Morris uses multiple shifts with his backs before the ball is snapped and I can see numerous penalties and misalignments until they learn his system. This could be one of the reasons for his slow progression at SMU. However, I don’t see CCM as a coach worried about winning the time of possession so that is a positive.

I predict we will win a minimum of six games in 2018 and look much stronger at the end of the season than at the beginning. We will most likely lose to Bama, Auburn, and LSU. Toss-ups are A&M, MissState and Mizzo. The rest are all winnable but there could be bumps along the way.

Until we know who the DC is, and until we know how this recruiting class turns out, this is where my expectations are:

E. Ill - Win
CSU - Loss
N TX - Win
Auburn - Loss
Alabama - Loss
A&M - Loss
Ole Miss - Win
Tulsa - Win
Vandy - Win
LSU - Loss
Miss St - Loss
Mizzou - Loss

5-7

I hate to see him start 2-6 in the conference. Hopefully by the end of the year they can pull out one of the last two as a win.

Really? Beating Jimbo Fisher's new team the 1st time around?

Would love to see it, but even my highest of expectations for Morris' first SEC game aren't that high.

Agree.  Need to win all 4 OOC games to go bowling since that means we only need 2 conf wins (pretty sad state of college football!) and we can get those hopefully vs Vandy and maybe Mississippi or Mizzou or A&M.

A lot of our players have played in a spread offense in high school.  They will just be learning a new scheme.

We will see how it goes.

7-9 wins and possibly better.

Our improvement in discipline alone from a more detail-oriented coach will at least out-score that many opponents.

Throw in a better than average DC and the skies the limit.

that Auburn, A&M, Bama stretch is brutal, but Miss st. Ole Miss LSU Mizzou
none of those scare me, especially on the back end. We could easily win 8+ games but who knows, we could also be pitiful & drop CSU, & Tulsa. lol

Even at 6-6 this is exactly the type schedule we need going into a completely different era. Losing Michigan may not be a bad thing the first year, especially early and what a great time to draw Vandy.

I don't see the learning curve to be as steep as a lot are predicting. I'm not saying they won't have some issues here and there. Just saying that most high schools run some variation of the hurry up spread already. I know his system is unique but there are some similarities to what these kids ran in high school. It'll be  hardest for the linemen but the skill players should pick it up quickly.

So glad our game in is LR again.  We play better there and sell out our allotment in LR vs Fayetteville. Plus its 12 minutes from my doorstep.

Need to finally beat Missouri. Next season they will be without their OC, who helped make Lock a star. And because of that Lock might be gone too. If he is that team struggles to win 4 games.

Lot of things must be considered here.  I suspect Spring Practice may wash a few out and fall practice may get some more.  The days of playing yourself into shape might be over.  I believe we hit the ground ready next season.  We got to find a QB who can run the system and I doubt we got him on the squad right now.  We may see T J hammonds in the QB position a lot running the Wildhog if he can chunk just a little. 

Who runs the defense will make a huge difference.  Putting fire in a few bellies and refusing to be denied will go a long way toward not getting the crap kicked out of us most games.  I think we will win at least 6 games this coming season.  I believe we will see an effort on every play and changes throughout the game depending on what the game dictates.  I expect us to actually have a better special teams and better second team.  Practice is likely to come in handy this coming year as you are likely to actually learn from practice.

Next year will be a lot like Petrino's first year IMO.


If we get to a bowl that will be great. I have no doubt by year 3 we will be back to where Petrino had us. If it's sooner that is cool with me too.

Guys that schedule has 8 wins written all over it if the team buys in.  I could see a minimum of 6 and a max of 10 if things really come together. 
I've said 8 already so I'll stick with it..... but it kinda has a HDN year one feel to it.... could be really fun.  Difference is there isn't as much talent on defense as HDN had.  Offense could be dynamic.

Time will tell.
