    @ Memphis - W
    @ Auburn - W
    LSU - L
    La Tech - W
    @ Georgia - This is the difference between a special season or 7-5 or 6-6. I am saying a L right now.
    @ UAB - W
    South Carolina - W - our upset for the year
    @ Kentucky - W
    UT Martin - W
    Alabama - L
    @ Arkansas - L
    Ole Miss - W - 25+ point win

    After
    reviewing my picks - I guess I am saying a repeat of last year which
    looking at our schedule from a far - I was going to say 7-5 (3-5).
    Breaking it down by game, I increased it by one hoping for that upset.
    There are 3 games where I am unsure - Auburn, Georgia and USC. If we
    come out 2-1 in those 3, then we are 9-3.

  6. #6

    Ely's Restaurant Preseason Prognosticators - Week 12 - MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY

    I see 7 wins on the down side and 9 wins on the upside with 8 being the most probable.

  7. #7

    Ely's Restaurant Preseason Prognosticators - Week 12 - MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY

    @Memphis - W - and another trouncing at that...we blast the Tigers 35-7
    @Auburn - W - Mullen will get his revenge this year 28-14
    LSU - L - wish I could do it....I think we will be in this one at the end though 17-21
    La Tech - W - 45-10
    @Georgia - W - 21-14
    @UAB - W - 32-13
    USC - L - 17-14 - I think they might be the most beatable out of LSU/Bama/USC/ARK, but I just cant pick us to win 9.
    @UK - W - 35-17
    UT-Martin - W 42-7
    Bama - L - 20-7
    @ARK - L - 31-28 - just too tough to pick a win in that state...definitely not Our State.
    Ole Miss- CHILD PLEASE...but just to make myself feel better about jinxing us, I will say its maybe a closer game this year - 24-21

    Well, we have to beat UGA or Auburn. I am saying screw it, we are going to beat both of them. I changed the way the UGA game went at least 3 times before I submitted this. Went with the safe picks on LSU, USC, Bama and Ark...but it is high time for a big upset. The question is, can we beat the teams we are better than, which I think include Auburn and Georgia AND pull a big upset.

    If we somehow opened 3-0, there might be no stopping us this year. Last time LSU came to Scott Field, they were all but defeated by Tyson fricking Lee. 2-1 and I think we repeat last year's results. That said, if we open 1-2...we are all in for a tough season and an uphill fight the whole way.

    Agree with a lot of wht DS wrote but just a little more optimistic. Think we have a chance to get to a BCS game. If we get by LSU and are 3-0, could be a really special year. Four games that are the toughest ... LSU, USCe (think they will be best in the east) Bama and Ark. Go into the Ark game 9-1 and I think we win in L. Rock.

    * Caveat ... Looking back at MSU of old; when things go south, they go south in a hurry. Hopefully, this team is more mature and won't let that happen.

    We go into Alabama 8-1 and lose a heart breaker. We beat South Carolina and Georgia with the running game. @UAB will be a scare. Saddled in between Georgia and USC I hate that game. We never beat Arkansas in Little Rock. Ole Miss will be closer than people think.

    Ely's Restaurant Preseason Prognosticators - Week 12 - MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY

    Really want to say 9-3 but I think we'll wind up losing 1 between at Auburn, at Georgia, and at Arkansas.

    Mississippi - W 34-17

    Bama, LSU and us all finish 6-2 but somehow we win the tiebreaker and go to ATL for a rematch with USC. Relf and Ballard have a field day, and we finish the year in the Sugar Bowl.

    This is what I went with last year. And I was glad I was wrong. Going with it again.

    As long as we don't go 6-6.

    @ Memphis - W

    LSU - L

    @ Georgia - probably a L with a distinct possibility of a W, depending on how GA fares coming into our game. If they get Ls before us, then we can W them too
    @ UAB - W
    South Carolina - L with a 40% possibility of a W
    @ Kentucky - W
    UT Martin - W
    Alabama - L
    @ Arkansas - L I can't tell you howbadly I want this to be a W
    Ole Miss - W with an= or > 30point win

    Got to beat LSU sometime.. this is the year
    Richt really needs to beat us (and as many teams as possible) this year to keep his job..
    We are a potential trap game for Bama since it's after LSU week... but we were in '09 too and they waxed us.
    We never win in Arky.. and that is something that probably isn't changing this year.. although the loss of Knile Davis is at least 1 more loss on their schedule.
    If the egg bowl were in Oxford again this year.. I actually might give them a slight chance.. but it's not.. so we win.

    As others have said, the ball bounces our way one or 2 times and we can be 9-3.. We will be in every game.. I would be disappointed in a 7-5 season..we should not lose to 5 teams on our schedule this year.

    I welcome the effect that it may have on my career if it happens again.

    Some trends I am noticing - I think a lot of people are overestimating UGA and underestimating USC. Is Georgia any better than the team we beat last year? They lost Green and all of their RBs. Sure Murray has another year of development...but we are better too.

    If we go into Bamaundefeatedwhy not just say we beat them? They play LSU the week before us and have to come into what will be the wildest gameday atmosphere ever on our campus. I highly doubt this happens but hey Auburn did it last year when everyone but Herbie had them 4th in the West.

    State 9-0...Bammer 9-0...college gameday comes in- Bammer wins on a FG in the 4th

    The loss drains us for a week and we come out flat vs UPig and drop another....

    We finish the regular season on a high note with a 45- 13 win over Nutts and Mississippi

    10-2 with losses to Bammer and UPig
