We are now coming up on one month out from the opening weekend of college football. We are 43 days away from the first weekend of SEC action. So I figured it's about time we start looking at the 2018 season and start picking our winners and losers for the upcoming season! Earn those bragging rights for predictions.

Please copy and paste this format so we can keep this thread looking clean and consistent! Picking win/loss records is encouraged but not required. :)

I almost went 12-0, but I think week 2 @ South Carolina is going to smack these guys in the mouth. I just have that feeling about it. I think we roll after that but I just get the feeling it's going to be that wake up call. If that game were later in the season then I think Georgia wins by 14+... but the Dawgs have only won one time at South Carolina in week 2 or 3 in the last 10 years. In 2008. Of course this is a different era for both schools and the Dawgs have won the last 2 matchups between Kirby and Muschamp by 14... but those were both later in the season.

Hopefully I am very wrong and we blow them out. ^_^

I think the LSU game is up for grabs.  That game at night is hard.  I see our run game wearing down the SC defense.

Yeah that LSU game could be a real challenge. You could be right. I can see 1 loss... I'll throw it as a toss up between South Carolina or LSU, but not both.

Little early to go in depth. 

Gut take right now, UGA ceiling 11-1, floor 10-2... Couldn't tell you where loss #2 comes from, but @LSU seems most dangerous right now and is likely #1.

Taking Bama in the West, one loss at most. 

Bama takes Atlanta by 10-13... Not as close as last year but respectable. 

Reserve right to change mind pending fall camp updates.

I decided to go through Tennessee's schedule, since I really don't know much about most of the other teams in the SEC, or specific players.

-Sep 1 (Sat) 3:30 P.M. ET vs West Virginia in Charlotte, NC: Loss probably by at least 2 scores. 0-1

-Sep 8 (Sat) 4 P.M. ET vs ETSU: Easy win. 1-1

-Sep 15 (Sat) 12 P.M. ET vs UTEP: Should be another easy win before the brutal stretch. 2-1

-Sep 22 (Sat) vs Florida: Loss. 2-2

-Sep 29 (Sat) at Georgia: Loss in a big way. 2-3

-Oct 13 (Sat) at Auburn: Another big loss. 2-4

-Oct 20 (Sat) vs Alabama: Blowout loss, although Saban doesn't run the score up intentionally. 2-5

-Oct 27 (Sat) at South Carolina: 14 point loss, but the team is playing better. 2-6

-Nov 3 (Sat) vs Charlotte: Lopsided victory for some relief after the very difficult stretch. 3-6

-Nov 10 (Sat) vs Kentucky: A bit of a toss up, but Tennessee finds a way to eek out a win. 4-6

-Nov 17 (Sat) vs Missouri: I hate to lose to Dooley, but  their offense is too much for UT to handle. 4-7

-Nov 24 (Sat) at Vanderbilt: Toss up. I'm sick of losing to these guys, so surely UT's leaders are too. Close victory on the road, even though there will be more orange/white than black/gold in the stands. The team is playing much better now than they were in September. 5-7

 

Overall: 5-7, so they'll need to win all the games they're supposed to, plus upset a team to get bowl eligible.

I do hope that Fulmer as Athletic Director nixes the out of conference neutral site games, especially when trying to build the program up. I could see the West Virginia game getting ugly quick this season.
