9/1 umass: W 29-9 We're better than Duquense
9/8 holy cross: W 45-7 The entire week on EO is spent arguing over the new redshirt burning rules
9/13 (thursday) at wake forest: L 17-14 This is such a classic WTF situation that it barely qualifies as a WTF.
9/22 at purdue: L 34-29 Brian Brohm is better than Matt Ryan.
9/29 temple: W 27-17 Daz demands be carried off the field on the players' shoulders after beating his old team.
10/6 at nc state university: W 34-20 We beat RCC and TRE gets shot in the parking lot, a great day to be an Eagle.
10/13 louisville: L 35-10 Season's basically over heading into the bye.
10/20 BYE BYE BYE
10/29 (friday) miami, fla: W 19-17 Miami is unranked at this point, but Daz keeps calling it a win over a preseason top-10.
11/3 at virginia tech: W 20-16 Season salvaged with second straight big name win. King Ketchup calls out EO by name during a Jake n Joe's rant against the haters.
11/10 teh clemson: L 48-15 Dabo keeps calling trick plays in the 4th to run up the score.
11/17 at florida state: L 27-20 Injuries and youth
11/24 syracuse L 34-30 We always shit the bed against Syracuse.

6-6 (3-5)

Considering you have BC beating UMass and Temple, that's 2-0 vs. other Lambert-Meadowlands eligible teams. With that kind of record in the tiebreaker, 8th seems pretty low.

9/29 temple - W

11/24 syracuse - W. Daz at this point spinning the hell out of anything he can find to explain 5-7. Kids are young, need to break dome in another year, schedule tough....

I wish I could see the optimism in this team but they are at such a disadvantage on the sideline that Im just not sure where the wins come from.

If they had a real head coach who wasn't confused by basic game coaching, I'd see 8-4 out of the schedule.

I would agree with this pessimism if it didn't seem he turned the offense over to Loeffler in the 4th quarter of the VT game last year.

I'd agree if they weren't so dominant in the run game and that wasn't his default. They'll win 8 games by accident if dillon stays healthy.

My heart says 10-2 plus a bowl loss.
But my gut says 9-3 plus a bowl win.

Hope it’s the former and not the latter.

here's how things are shaking out so far after the first game with any real variation in the predictions. things will get interesting now...

no one picked a loss to temple so i likely won't update this until after rcc

some more movement in the prediction results after another no-show in rolly. louisville looks turrble this year, but i still do not rule out the thinskinned one dropping a turd in this one...

Image

if i were walrus, i would take this time to swap out my prediction of a loss to louisville with a win over the cuse. i'm still confident in my prediction of 6-7, just not the teams we're going to lose to.

yes - it appears you quietly edited your predictions a week after you originally submitted them and i didn't catch it because you did not indicate an edit in any way. i've corrected your predictions because your edit still occurred well before the season and, even though you were as wrong as could be about brown being a terrible quarterback, i still respect that your 10-3 might wind up even more wrong

I maintain that Brown will become a very good quarterback for Boston College and thank you for fixing your obvious sloppy work.

unlike that used tampon walrus, i won't shut down the contest just because i got one pick wrong. congrats to the handful that have been perfect at predicting the hammer's shortcomings as well as the shortcomings of other, somehow even less talented coaches...

sorry for going walrus after the miami game. we have now reach a point where no poster can achieve a perfect season prediction. only three guessed a win against the clemson this weekend... but they are three that aren't doing very well (6-3 iggle and the dude that shat on bc and 5-4 lawyersgunsnmoney)

seems a little like the season starts now.
