2014 - Call Your Shot

Unread postby fairvis » Fri Aug 29, 2014 10:19 am

Prediction thread! OK, so let's go with some fearless predictions here of the Buckeyes record, the B1G champion, the 4 teams that make the playoffs, and then the eventual national champion.


Here's where I'll start:

OSU Record - 9-3; losses @MSU, @PSU, and a whoopsie either between Va Tech or Cincy due to a freshman QB.

B1G Champion - MSU over Nebraska
Playoff Teams: Florida State, Alabama, UCLA, and then the 2nd place team in the SEC West (Auburn or A&M).

National Champ: FSU is hard to pick against, so I'll go with that...

What do you guys think?

I only see one 50:50 shot at an L on the schedule.... MSU.

PSU on the road is tough, but PSU is not a good team. OSU beat them 63-14 last year and it worse. I don't buy the media hype on PSU being a trap this year for OSU.

I am also not willing to concede the conference to MSU either. Barrett is young, but he is a multi-dimensional QB and this D is going to go from ~100 in the country to top 15 this year.

VaTech is a possible loss because it is early, it is a good defensive team and JT will not have had the time to develop. That said, I really don't know much about VT this year other than they will have some good athletes and a constipated offense.

I got the Buckeyes at 11-1 and Co-Divisional champs at worst. Wouldn't be stunned to see 12-0 or 10-2.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Still worried about PSU after watching them struggle with Akron?

FYI,

Navy has over 300 yards rushing with 25 mins left to go in their game against Temple.

Yeah, Furls, not sure about that call. Always glad if my expectations are exceeded.
