    12-0, SEC Champs, 2 playoff wins = 15-0.

    We are practically a “solid favorite” in almost every game. I took that into consideration when I made my one loss season prediction.

    And your prediction is?

    I hope we make it to the Championship game. It is difficult for me to predict what our record will be with all the injuries so far before the first game has even started.

    Healthy Tua and healthy Dylan Moses, Jalen Waddle = either undefeated or maybe 1 loss during regular season.
    Win SEC Championship v UGA, win National Championship #18

    Injured Tua or Dylan during key games like Texas AM, LSU, Auburn = probably still win but will be very close call. I don't like the team having to play away at Texas AM, Auburn, and Miss State all in the same season.

    I just pray there are no more major injuries or sickness, etc to any of the players and that the coaches also stay healthy/sick free/injury free.

    I do think we lose one regular season game. A&M, Auburn, LSU are the obvious, but I worry about a team like Arkansas, with an offensive scheme which could expose our defense.

    FWIW last year we beat A&M by 22, Auburn by 31, LSU by 29 and Arkansas by 37. I just don't think any of those teams have improved enough to close in on a 20-30 point gap.

    And, I'm somewhat convinced we are going to be better than last year.

    I just don't see how we lose a regular season game unless Tua gets hurt.

    What about post season?

    To be frank Clemson and Georgia are the only 2 teams in the country I think can beat us. I seriously do not think there is another team that could come all that close barring some crazy stuff.

    Maybe a team like Ohio State that has recruited well will rise and become another challenger as the year goes on especially if Fields turns into something. But as of right now I don't see it.

    15-0 and we get to pay back Clemson in the big one.

    Too many question marks to feel really good about predicting a national championship. Tuaís health, the new offense, the effectiveness of the defense, and the new coaches are just a few of the big ones. I think we will be in Atlanta on the first weekend December, most likely undefeated, but past that who knows. Iím not as confident as I was in 2012, 2015, and 2017 when there were few question marks.

    More or less I probably would want to wait until the 2nd off week before predicting the postseason.

    It is okay to let your optimist out. Every team has question marks, and Alabama has fewer than any other team in the country.

    Optimistically I can see us getting to national championship vs Clemson but winning it I have no idea. Some people cite revenge will carry the day, but I still think the key will be getting to Trevor Lawrence to which no amount of optimism can give the defense that benefit of the doubt without seeing them first. If the defense canít slow down Clemsonís offense then it will be a never ending scoring match that probably will be decided by who has the ball last.

    If this is a ď letís all predict a national championship threadĒ then fine Iíll play 15-0. But if this is a realistic thread then 13-1 or 14-1 without seeing the team first. 15-0 is a possibility if we get every favorable bounce, the schedule doesnít hurt us, and donít get bit by the injury bug.
