    Default 2019 Record PredictionThread

    Now that the blue-white game is over, time for the annual prediction thread.

    I'm thinking:

    Losses:
    LSU

    Wins:
    Maine
    NMSU
    Georgia State
    South Alabama
    ULM
    Coastal Carolina

    Win 3 of these 5 games:
    @Minnesota
    @App State
    @Troy
    @Arkansas State
    Louisiana

    9-3

    I could see us going 7-5 and being at least as good of a team as last year. I could see us going 9-3 and being significantly better than last year. The average of those two scenarios being 8-4.

    Predicting 8-4 and hope to be pleasantly surprised if we do better.

    I see no way we match 10 wins.

    6-8 wins regular season. BEST case scenario, we get 9 wins with a bowl victory.

    I'll make my official prediction at 7-5 regular season.

    Last year we won at least 2 games that analytics say we would have lost on most nights (Texas State and EMU).

    We lucked up and pulled those out. We also had flukey turnover luck which can't be recreated as well as a flukey injury in the App game which turned into a blowout.

    On top of that, we had a MUCH more favorable schedule. Winning 10 games last year should get Lunsford a statue.

    If he wins ten games this year, he's better than Erk.

    If he strings together 3 ten win seasons, he will take a better job.

    I'm thinking 8-4 or 7-5, and am honestly OK with it FOR NOW WITH THAT SCHEDULE. We could be better than we were last year, but I do not think the overall schedule results will show it. Too many difficult away games, and we typically stumble on one that we shouldn't.

    Still think people are making too much of the turnover margin. The only thing that was remarkable about our turnover numbers was not having any interceptions. Chalk that up to Werts being afraid to throw the ball if you want, but that's not luck. We got lucky with getting our own fumbles back, but we also had issues with snaps and exchanges that will get better.

    We also have going for us:

    We should be significantly better early in the season and better overall. We haven't even really seen the full breadth of the offense yet.

    Troy is losing their head coach, their 3 leading receivers, and half their defensive starters including their two best players to the transfer portal. App returns a ton of starters but have both a HC and DC that run systems a good bit different than what they have been running. They probably won't drop off a cliff but there's a chance we'll be better than both of them. History shows that when G5 teams get their HC poached the next guy up usually isn't as good.
