SEC Football Media Days 2012 has come and gone. Predictions by the assembled media at the event have been made. Now it’s time for us to unveil our predictions for the 2012 football season — as well as ask you to give us yours.
As usual, we’re planning to do this with a three-part series of posts this week so that we can fully break down all of the prognostications.
We start today with the bottom line…wins and losses.
|Sept. 1||Jacksonville State||W||W||W||W|
|Sept. 29||at Texas A&M||W||L||W||W|
|Oct. 6||at Auburn||W||W||W||W|
|Oct. 27||Ole Miss||W||W||W||W|
|Nov. 10||at South Carolina||W||W||L||W|
|Nov. 17||at Mississippi State||W||W||W||W|
|Regular Season Record||11-1||9-3||9-3||11-1|
A few notes:
- Like the rest of the fan base, the RazorBloggers are split right down the middle on what kind of season we think it will be. Two votes for 11-1…two votes for 9-3. A great season and in the hunt for a national championship. Or a very good season just short of being a great season. Strong arguments can be made both ways.
- Similar to last season, this year sets up well for a build up to the Alabama game. Unlike the last couple of seasons, however, let’s see if this coaching staff actually establishes the running game in the first two games before the Crimson Tide (and ESPN Gameday?) comes to town.
- Rutgers looks like the biggest ‘trap game’ on the schedule. The game after Alabama always seems to be each year. And like every season, winning all four SEC road games will be a major challenge. Expect at least one of those games to come down to the wire like it did in Nashville last season.
- As always, the disclaimer that key injuries may affect these predictions should be made. Never mind what effect the loss of a tyrannical, offensive genius head coach might have.
Coming up next: Will the Hogs win their bowl game and who will be the breakout player of the year?
