    I have no idea but taking a guess from what I've seen, this is what I would expect


    UT- 34-14 W
    Miss St 35-14 L
    Lsu - 21-10 L
    Vandy - 35-24 W
    UGay - 42-20 L
    Missouri - 30-16 W
    USCe - 24-21 W
    Idaho - 53-7 W
    Fsu - 30- 3 W

    I really haven't a clue. Just guessing. This is fun. Wish it were 2008.

    I’m hoping for .500 record this year. Franks play is unpredictable, as is our OL play. If they can improve, we have a chance for 8 wins, but could also go other way against good Defenses. Not sure we have bodies to cover good passing teams either

    6-8 is a very distinct possibility even if we keep improving. That may be Mullen doing a good job. 8-6( winning to same two games that made us 6-8) I think would be outstanding. It’s hard to accept this as our ceiling but if we win 9 games I will be beside myself. If we only win 6 games, I hope we can still get this class where it needs to be. We have the coach, but we have to recruit to move in the right direction. This staff needs to get this oline to be an average sec line for that to happen and that may be asking a lot. The talent is questionable and oline improvement isn’t something that happens overnight regardless of talent.

    LSU had a great win yesterday, but anyone who watched that could see that they are the fakest top 10 team out there. A miracle TD with missed tackle after missed tackle, set them up big time. They have a good defense and all but I would circle that one as maybe the win that UF gets that starts to get the CDM era going. We will lose to MSU, UGA, and probly Vandy. Wins against UT, USCe, Mizzou, and Idaho. FSU is a toss up

    Posted often that we will lose 1 or 2 we aren't supposed to and win 1 or 2 we aren't supposed to. A little doubt creeping in on that 2nd part. It depends on leaders emerging on both sides of the ball that can get teammates to play lights out at times. Reese should be that guy on D, I am hoping Franks is that guy on O.

    Improving throughout the season, getting to a bowl game and winning it will make this a good year to build off of. And allow a better than expected recruiting class.

    Florida football: A closer look at Dan Mullen's track record in key games

    Dan has a 2-6 record versus LSU, as a head coach, but did beat ranked LSU teams in 2014 anc again last year. Has a very poor coaching record against ranked teams, but was always the lower ranked team in those games and many losses were in first two years at MSU and versus Bama. Also keep many games close in losses. That said, jury is still out as to whether Dan can beat ranked SEC teams head to head, and whether he can recruit effectively against big boys. Time will tell now that he has access to better and more fertile recruiting grounds

    Well if you break it down into quarters I could see the following:
    First 4 games: 3-1
    Next 4 games: 1-3 maybe 2-2 if someone takes us lightly. I'm looking at you LSU.
    Next 4 games: 3-1 I like us in theory to win the last 4, but I could also see us losing to Mizz or usce.

    7-5 would be respectable with the chance at 8-4 if someone in that middle quarter looks past us. LSU gets us before they get UGA, maybe they are fat and happy and forget to show up.

    Miss state is @UK, UF, AU we could get overlooked, but with it being Mullen I doubt it.

    Also remember, he had Johnny Football for 2 years out west, a cheating ole miss, Auburn, LSU, Bama, the west was a bloodbath for several years there. He was the less talented team I'd say 95% of the time.

    Is amazing how quickly perspective changes... Fsu now chalked up as a loss. Not saying I don't like it!

    IF I'm going to pick any definite losses it's MSU and UGA. Not overly impressed by LSU to where I'll say they're unbeatable.

    That MSU game very well depends on where our kids minds are that game. I think they get up for that game, I don't think they have much more talent than us, I think the boys don't want Dan to lose that game, but we'll see. I don't think we'll see lackluster effort any more this season, I could be wrong though.
