It's going to be a rough September:
But before you get your panties all in a bunch (I mean, if ESPN says it, it must be true, right?), let's go over this guy's dubious claims to football psychicrie:
I predicted Miami would struggle and end up playing in the Champs Sports Bowl. Hurricanes fans told me I was dead wrong. They were right -- the Hurricanes beat Nevada 21-20 in the lesser MPC Computers Bowl in Boise, Idaho.
After the continuing craptacularness of the Miami offense over the past few seasons, who didn't see the 'Canes playing in a crap bowl last season?
I predicted the Teagles would only win 9 games during the regular season, and they won 10! That's pretty close, right? Does that mean I can write for ESPN? PREDICTION! Georgia will play Florida this year. I am so on the money!
After the soap opera recruiting of Mustain, and the fact that the Hogs were coming off of back to back losing seasons without a proven winner at QB and little to no passing game, who didn't think Mustain would get the chance to start at some point during the season? Stafford, well, I didn't really care, so I'll give you that one.
I might give him this one, but with West Virginia's Sugar Bowl win over UGA and the general consensus that Louisville was for real and would handle (former) ACC power Miami, anyone remotely interested in college football knew that the Big East wasn't as weak as it used to be.
So yeah, Schlabach, we'll be revisiting this come October.
