Bold Predictions for 2019

It worked last year. Selma, keep in mind that playing defense is an after thought in the big 12.
Well, it worked so long as they were playing Big 12 teams.

They needed overtime to beat Army, and they're 0 for the College Football Playoff despite making it three times in five years.


The Big 12 today is like their (mostly) ancestral lineage, the Big Eight - they can whoop each other but are mediocre outside the conference.

Since 1996, the Big 12's ALL-TIME record against the Power Five conferences - and I'm including CU and Nebraska here - is 172-176.

Take OU's 25-15 record away from that and it's 147-161.

Despite being the richest school out there, Texas is basically .500 against OOC P5 teams (22-19).

4. Bama plays (and beats!) Michigan in a Semi-Final playoff game causing Skip Bayless to apologize for calling Harbaugh the better coach.
I'm not sure whether this is guaranteed to not happen because:
a) Michigan isn't going to make the playoff - EVER or....
b) Skip Bayless will never admit he's wrong.


Cleverly written, I must admit.

If Michigan is to get there it will probably be this year when everyone in the East is a question mark at best except them.

Good paper theory......but he's still got to find a way to beat the Buckeyes, and I don't think he's capable.
The refs gave Ohio St one of those games just like they always seem to do in Top 5 Ohio St-Michigan games.


I don’t think He was capable of beating Urban and experienced quarterbacks. I think Ohio St is probably in the worst shape it has been in since 2011. They have gambled a lot on Fields being a good quarterback. If Tate Martell was still there then I would say 95% chance Ohio St beats Michigan in Ann Arbor, but now that probably goes under 50%.

I’m going to say Michigan finally gets it done this year based on what is coming back and where their big games are.

Saban will again replace both coordinators at the end of the season.
I think we hold on to Golding for a couple more years....assuming he does well. If our defense collapses...yeah.

I could possibly see Sark running the table with this offense and then cashing that it on something, but I hope he stays around if we are as good as I think we'll be on offense.

1. Both Auburn and LSU will go 10-2 and not make ATL because Bama is 8-0 in conference.

2. Florida will be a 6-7 win team and will be this year’s overrated team.

3. Both Tennessee and Ole Miss will make a bowl game.

Tried to think outside the box but may have discarded the box completely and then burned it, haha.
