I have found one way to keep an even keel during the season is to examine the schedule to see where the wins and losses are. That way I can see if UF is ahead or behind schedule. So here goes: North Florida, W, 1-0 at Wisconsin, L, 1-1, a very tough place to win. I had this as a loss before any suspensions. Arkansas–Little Rock, W, 2-1 Southern, W, 3-1 Middle Tennessee, W, 4-1 at Jacksonville, W, 5-1 Florida State, W, 6-1, UF needs to win this one given what is coming. at Connecticut, W, 7-1, This is the road game I think UF can get pre-SEC. Kansas, W, 8-1, A home game against a young but talented team. Memphis (NYC), W, 9-1, Neutral site game that I think UF will win. Fresno State (Sunrise, FL), L, 9-2, UF's annual last game before Christmas loss Savannah State, W, 10-2 Richmond, W, 11-2 So that is 11-2 before the SEC schedule. Now UF might lose to UConn or Memphis and beat Fresno. Also 10-3 with this schedule would be fine. Anything worse and I will be concerned. I like to break the SEC up into groups of games. I will try 3 groups of 6 with the 18 game schedule: South Carolina, W, 1-0, 12-2 at Arkansas , W, 2-0, 13-2, they lost a lot after last season. Georgia, W, 3-0, 14-2 at Auburn, W, 4-0, 15-2 at Alabama, W, 5-0, 16-2, UF seems to have UAL's number recently and they had some offseason surprise losses. Tennessee, W, 6-0, 17-2, I worry about this because UF always struggles with these guys no matter how bad their pre-conference play is. So I have UF starting 6-0 at Mississippi State, W, 7-0, 18-2 they are still building back and UF should still be able to win there. Texas A&M, W, 8-0, 19-2 Missouri, W, 9-0, 20-2 Alabama, W, 10-0, 21-2 at Tenessee, L, 10-1, 21-3, naturally. at Kentucky, L, 10-2, 21-4, at two game losing streak. I have UF going 4-2 in this set of six games. Auburn, W, 11-2, 21-4 at Ole Miss, W, 12-2, 22-4, they lost their big that made them good last year. at Vanderbilt, W, 13-2, 23-4 they are struggling LSU, W, 14-2, 24-4, they building but it is a home game. at South Carolina, L, 15-3, 24-6 Martin may just have them ready to beat UF there late in the season. Kentucky, W, 15-3, 25-5 I have UF going 5-1 in this set of six games. Overall I have UF going 11-2 and 15-3 in the SEC for a 25-5 record. I could see it being 10-3 and 14-4 in the SEC with a loss in one of the first set of six, UTn at home or at UAR or at UAL are the candidates for a 24-7 record. If UF falls behind the 24-7 pace, I will begin to worry. My view is it will take that to get a bid with a decent seed this year. I would be happy to read comments, disputes and other opinions on how this season will unfold.
