2012 Predictions For Your Team

Post by zoon on Mon Jul 02, 2012 8:46 pm

Best case scenario: 8-4
NAU win
ILLINOIS win
at Missouri loss
UTAH win
at California loss
at Colorado win
OREGON loss
UCLA win
at Oregon State win
at USC loss
WASHINGTON STATE win
at Arizona win
Offensively-The QB situation is resolved in week one, and the WR play is better than expected.
Defensively-Tthe new 3-3-5 scheme works like a charm, and Brandon MacGee plays like a beast.
Accolades-Todd Graham is the Pac 12 Coach of the year. Cameron Marshall and Brandon MacGee are first team all Pac 12 selections

Worst Case Scenario: 3-9
NAU win
ILLINOIS loss
at Missouri loss
UTAH loss
at California loss
at Colorado win
OREGON loss
UCLA loss
at Oregon State loss
at USC loss
WASHINGTON STATE loss
at Arizona win
Offensively-The QB situation is never resolved, and the oline has problems gelling.
Defensively-Brandon MacGee re-injures his achilles, and the secondary continues to get torched and miss tackles (like the second half of last year).
Criticisms-Todd Graham is viewed as a phony, and red-shirt freshmen decide to transfer.

Realistic:5-7
NAU win
ILLINOIS loss
at Missouri loss
UTAH loss
at California loss
at Colorado win
OREGON loss
UCLA win
at Oregon State loss
at USC loss
WASHINGTON STATE win
at Arizona win

VERY quick analysis: I think the QB position is going to be a revolving door all year long. Our WR's are average at best, but with a lot of speed. The o-line is ok but nothing special. I think we are going to be a run first, run second, and run third kind of team. If you look at Pitt last year, I think they lead the country in rushing before Ray Graham got hurt at the end of October (don't quote me on this), and he was averaging something like 135 yds a game. Cameron Marshall is just as good as Graham is, and we have Deantre Lewis and Big James Morrison backing up CMarsh.

Defensively, I think we should be a little better than last year. Having a healthy MacGee is vital, because he is the team's vocal leader. I seriously think that if MacGee played all of last year, we would have won at least 8 games instead of 6. Last year defensively, we were good in the first half of the season, then we started sucking in the last half. I think Erickson's laid back attitude, along with Burfict's childish behavior, set the morose tone for the second half of the season, hence the firing of Erickson.

Believe it or not, Todd Graham is a hit here in Tempe. I literally see him at least 3 times a week, whether it's on campus talking to students, or meddling around the Tempe area. He has a salesmen personality, but he doesn't come across as a phony-bologna. He's been a success everywhere he has been, but the way he left Pitt will be etched in people's minds forever, unless of course, he wins here at ASU.

So what do you think? Give me your teams predictions.

University of South Carolina
08/30/12 at Vanderbilt # TV Nashville, Tenn. W
09/08/12 vs. East Carolina TV Columbia, S.C. W
09/15/12 vs. UAB TV Columbia, S.C. W
09/22/12 vs. Missouri # Columbia, S.C. W
09/29/12 at Kentucky # Lexington, Ky. W
10/06/12 vs. Georgia # Columbia, S.C. W (or L: swing game)
10/13/12 at LSU # Baton Rouge, La. L
10/20/12 at Florida # Gainesville, Fla. L (upset)
10/27/12 vs. Tennessee # Columbia, S.C. W
11/10/12 vs. Arkansas # Columbia, S.C. L (or W: swing game)
11/17/12 vs. Wofford Columbia, S.C. W
11/24/12 at Clemson Clemson, S.C. L

That's going against the experts but that's how I see it. SCar will ALWAYS lose a game they shouldn't lose every year, and this year it will be against Florida. I have no idea how they have blown Clemson out three years in a row because Clemson's offense is explosive, but somehow they can't do anything against the Gamecock defense. A friend told me that they are predicted to only lose two games this year, with one being an upset loss (?) and one being a definite loss (LSU).[b]

2012 University of Virginia prediction

9/1 vs. Richmond: W 42-7
9/8 vs. Penn St.: W 24-20
9/15 @ Ga Tech: L 31-27
9/22 @ TCU: L 35-27
9/29 vs. La Tech: W 38-28
10/6 @ Duke: W 28-14
10/13 vs. Maryland: W 24-10
10/20 vs. Wake: W 34-20

11/10 vs. The U: W 28-27
11/15 vs. UNC: W 21-16
11/24 @ Va Tech: L 35-34

Sadly I see us losing to Tech one more year but the difference will be Mike London's first bowl win as UVa Head coach. 9-3 going into bowl season could be 7-5 however

If you look at the history of USF, they win the games they shouldn't and lose the games they should win starting in conference, mid season. Not this year. Last year was a fluke to most. But if you look at Skip Holtz history he had a 5 win season at UConn where he won the A10 and went into the 1aa playoffs and one before back to back conference wins at ECU. This year the talent and experience is there and for once, the team has 2 deep that can play at the BCS level. I expect a conference win and a trip to the Orange Bowl. Phil Steele and Athlon picked USF to win the conference or tie. The Big East media poll on Media day has them at second. They have the second most votes in the ranking poll that came out this week. I see every game they play as winnable as they have beaten all of those teams. The QB is a 5th year senior who went in as a RS Freshman and beat FSU at FSU his first game. DE and LB along with the QB are on prestigious watch lists. The future's so bright...

That was the case for South Carolina for years; they knew how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, yet they would turn around and beat unbeaten Alabama.

Looking at the schedule, looks like they will enter the SEC Champ. with just 1 lose.

Manny Diaz=over-rated. I remember last year's bowl game against Cal, and how well the Horns D looked. Everyone was talking about how great Diaz was and this-and-that, and how he was the next "big name" to get a FBS job. Now he is the laughing stock of coordinators.

The game against BSU is going to be "must see tv". If they can win in Reno, then they will be on fire going into Boise. I've always been a fan of Rocky Long. He got a raw deal when he was ousted from UNM. Katz is playing lights out so far this year. Muema and Kazee are a two-headed monster.

Youth and Turnovers have killed the season. But they're getting closer, all they need is another win and they can still go for 6-6 it's not totally out of reach

Looks like my friend was right in saying the Gamecocks would only lose two games: before the season started, he thought SCar would lose to LSU in Baton Rouge, and lose to Florida in Gainesville. I thought the Georgia matchup was too close to call, and I thought they would lose to Clemson.
