We will make the playoffs next year
Book it. Will bump it at the end of next year.


RB core is loaded.
WR core is the deepest we've had since 09.
OLine is a question, but we have a stud coach as proven this year and our S&C is far better so I trust this group to do well

Defensive line will be about the same. Little improvement from DT, little regression on pass rush

Linebackers significant depth has been added to help. At least one of these freshman will be ready to go. My guess is Black.

CB is loaded as hell

Safety I really want Dean to move to safety. Should be a good group

Most importantly. QB play will improve. The key is how much.

My bet is on vastly. Mullen is a QB guru.

This team will go 11-1. We have a decently strong schedule. That long time away from home mid season worries me greatly. Then we will topple Saban in Atlanta.

Also Jinxes don't exist. So not worried. Superstitions are ridiculous and a message board has zero impact on what happens on the field.

re: We will make the playoffs next year
Undefeated with our schedule would be insane. I mean it's a tough one.

Top tier-
LSU, Georgia

Very good - Missouri(Kelly), Auburn(maybe..who knows bi polar as hell),

Good- Miami, Tenn(expect a lot of improvement from them) UK, Vandy

So four sure wins including FSU.
Four expected wins but will be challenging.

Two teams that can beat us, though we should be slightly favored

Two teams we may be underdogs to come game time.

So 11-1 is fair I think.

re: We will make the playoffs next year
I called for 10 - 3 last year, I'll call for it again this year.

Let Mullen get his own Quarterback -- someone who actually fits his system and his own RBs/WRs/OL.

Imagine the monster OL we're going to have in two to three years.

But on defense we have a lot of growing up to do, even if we're loaded with talent. However, if Franks matures/grows up a lot over the next off-season, or Emory suddenly does the same, we could be right back in the mix immediately.

I still feel like we've got too much to do on defense to legitimately try for the championship, but 2020 is going to be a really scary team.

Not with 4 new starters on the OL. No way. Lucky to do as well as we did this year.

re: We will make the playoffs next year
That Oline was considered a weakness coming into the season. Their growth was strictly on this staff

So the new group should develop similarly. Even if not as good, we don't face many stellar Dlines this season that really have scary pass rushers. Especially early. So they have time to grow into themselves some.

I trust in the second year bump for great coaches. I feel Mullen has that same bump. I predicted 8-4 last year I believe. So I don't do these predictions much. Just have that special feeling...which isn't scientific of course but is what it is
