How to create a prediction for the 2011 season

The past is usually the best reference to determine future success. Before class got incredibly busy, I wanted to do a break down of the 1993 season to kind of get people realistically thinking about what the 2010 Tide would become.

Everyone knows what happened in 1992 and 2009 so there is little explaining that needs to be done to see what I'm getting at.

But focusing on the years around the national titles, official results from the 1993 season are 1-12 due to forfeits from the NCAA, but what really happened is Alabama finished second in the SEC West in 1993, but played in the SEC Championship Game as Auburn was prohibited from post-season play because of NCAA violations. In the 1993 SEC Championship Game, Alabama lost 28–13 to the Florida Gators at Legion Field. Alabama received an invitation to the 1993 Gator Bowl versus North Carolina, winning 24–10 and finishing with a 9–3–1 record.

In 1994,  Gene Stallings led the Crimson Tide to a perfect 11–0 regular season, only to see the Crimson Tide lose to the Florida Gators by one point in the SEC Championship Game.


Also, in 1991 the Tide  improved upon a 7–5 record from Stallings's first season as they ended with a 11–1 overall record, while going 6–1 in their conference games.


Should we expect something similar?


Not saying that Saban and Stallings's time at Alabama is exact but I think one of the main writers on the site should possibly looking into some of the similarities.
