Agreed could be 7-5 but....we will lose a couple we maybe should win.


I don't see a Morris team being upset. I believe it's going to be very difficult, but possible to go 4-4 in the SEC. That computes to 8-4, which is very achievable with our current talent level, which is much better than people give us credit for. Anything above that, and we better start watching our sixes for teams poaching our coaching staff. Colorado State on the road, and North Texas could present challenges, however, although both are winnable.

It would be interesting to see what people were predicting for Bielema's first year and Petrino's. My memory says a lot of the same predictions  as this thread.



The truth is none of us know for sure how much talent is or isn't on the roster. Not getting the ball to TJ Hammonds enough doesn't provide enough information either way. Bret absolutely under achieved but I'm not so sure he left a stock pile of talent for a new coach with a totally different philosophy to come in right away and go 8-4.


I could end up being totally surprised and totally wrong. I hope I am.

The schedule for next year is more favorable than it's been in a long time. It could help produce a better record than what most would expect.

Hope so. We say the same thing every year.

Colorado State on the road should be a win but not a walk in the park. Miss State won't be easy as some suggest. Nether will Vanderbilt or Missouri. 2 or those are SEC road games and have pretty talented qbs



Ole Miss will put up a fight too.

I simply have no clue how this upcoming season will prove to pan out.  Morris & Co. will be employing their predetermined, entirely-different-approach offensive and defensive schemes utilizing a player complement procured and deployed by a differently-minded-and-motivated set of recruiters, realigning the depth chart pecking orders and revamping and reassigning players into alternative slot positions all over the map.

There will be a mountain of "newness" for the Hogs veterans to have to conform to.

6-6 is the safe bet... If the QB situation turns out better than expected, then it may go up to 8-4... but in a bad QB fit to system situation (coupled with lack of experience), it may be 4-8. QB situation and ability to pass rush on defense will determine where we end up between 4-8 and 8-4.
Why do you people keep pulling this lie out of your rectums..? Are you a Chad Morris expert? Have you even watched High School highlights of the guys we have on campus? Have you ever heard this quote from Chad Morris?

...“I’ve met with a lot of players one-on-one and one of the things they’ve talked about is Cole,” Morris said. “They talk about his leadership and he’s been instrumental in making an impact in the time he’s been here.

“Obviously the best player is going to play. He’s big enough. He can throw the ball well enough. Watching him run, it looks like he can run well enough. Now, can we move those chains? If he can move the chains, then we’re all happy. There’s no guarantee. We’ll find out in spring football how this thing goes.”

7-5 or 8-4.  Unlike CBP who was left nothing by HDN and CBB who was a buffoon, Morris has some talent and a plan to go along with a softer schedule.

I'm just hoping for 6 wins.   I think we're lucky to get those 6.   Look at CBP's first 2 years.   We struggled with inferior teams well into year 2.  This thing doesn't just get turned around over night.  You don't change the entire system and win a lot of games at this level.

CBP should have won 6 first season.  Choked away one at UK.

They suck.  We've beat OM how many times in a row, and you will start seeing the decline due to the violations.  Attrition and poor recruiting has been the status quo over the past 2-3 years. 

Vandy has improved, but they are still Vandy.  They will be near the bottom of the weaker division.  We should beat them every year.

I just don’t think we are in a position to say “well they’re still ______”. Those are toss up games.

Well in part because he only had one season with a conference record of .500 or better.

But with the Vandy, Ole Piss and Miss St without Mullen. I feel we have a good chance to start off well.

A 7 or 8 wins season could do wonders

I agree with this. Offense has a lot of skill. LB and Secondary actually have quality player. IMO the biggest question marks are Oline and Dline.

Oline I expect some improvement just from teams not being able to stack the box as much and CCM’s quick passing game.

Dline got a huge boost from Gerald committing. We can now field a solid starting Dline with Agim, Capp, Guidry and Gerald. Combine that with some the experience of TJ Smith and potential player movements like Randy Ramsey and LaFrance to DE and we may have something. (LaFrance and Ramsey are just assumptions by me after hearing CCM and Caldwell mentioning players moving down)

Yep.  Question is in the lines and qb.  At least we have options and competition at qb.  Whomever it is should be effective.  I think the oline may be helped by scheme.

Yeah, QB has some questions. Cole will have to be more accurate to be the guy we need. But he showed some potential and I personally think Hyatt fits as well (of course that is hard to confirm as I haven’t ever seen him take a DI snap)

The coaching will be a lot better, so every game should be won except the following games.

Auburn
Texas A&M
Alabama
LSU

The main reason for those 4 losses will be because of those teams having more depth.

This is difficult to project. Bielema had 25 slots to fill in his first recruiting class. Morris had 16, maybe 2-3 more than that as it may work out eventually.

Bielema had to convert from a Petrino style offense to a Pro Style. Morris has to convert from a Pro Style to a "Clemson-like" Offense that is more similar to Petrino than Bielema.

Bielema inherited little talent that was of the kind that he needed to make his offense or defense work as he was accustomed to doing things. Morris on the other hand, inherits a much better existing talent base and depth level and it is up to him to convert it in a short time to what he wants them to do.

I think that the results of the last couple of seasons has led a lot of people to think that we have less talent on campus than we actually do. I don't expect miracles from the Morris staff, but I do think that we will achieve more than many expect.

I agree on the talent part MHF... while we may not be saturated with talent a number of our players had multiple offers from major college programs so they were well thought of coming out of high school or Juco ranks.   We may not be as deep as we would like but i think baring injury we can put a good O and D on the field.

Yes it will be. Hopefully we quit giving the TAM game away in OT once again.

Not disagreeing, just saying; remember Petrino's first two games were a 28-24 win against Western Illinois and a 28-27 win over Louisiana-Monroe.

And apart from the three subsequent games against very good teams that year, we were very competitive in all others. I really think we'll see something similar this year, which is why 5-7 won't be the end of the world.
We played Bama, Texas and Florida when they were all contenders for the BCS.  In fact if there was a four team playoff all three would have been in along with Oklahoma.  Big 12 was pretty salty back then, too bad Texas has absolutely burned it to the ground.

We went 7-4-1 Hatfield's first year and his flexbone was fun with Brad Taylor and yes Danny Nutt as qb.  Nutt almost rode the momentum of an 8-0 start all the way to the BCS, Danny Ford left a complete football team.  Petrino had to start all over but you could see the progress being made.  I never did feel optimistic under Bielema, the Rutgers game was a bad omen. 

I predict bowl eligibility with a major upset along the way.

The schedule sets up for 3-0.  This coach and staff will not let the team give up if they lose the next 3.  A&M is a very winnable game.  Arkansas should beat Ole Miss, Tulsa and Vanderbilt and go into LSU in Fayetteville no worse than 6-3.  Momentum and a packed house could deliver the same result as 2014.  The last two games are on the road but winnable.

The big question marks entering the season will most likely be at QB and along the OL.  There is a lot of talent in the OL and at the skilled positions.  The QB doesn't need to carry the offense, just make good decisions and distribute the ball to players in space.  The first half of the season should give the offense a chance to gel.  The defense will be much better from the get go. 

I think we're going to see an entirely different football team than the one we've seen since Auburn in 2016.  2018 should be a fun season.

Really looking forward to this season of Inside Edition: bphi11

Agree with most of your points here. However, I don't think Colorado State is a gimme. They run a great offense under Bobo and have enough talent to keep it interesting.

6-8 wins depending on how long it takes adjusting to CCM offense and CJC defensive scheme. I’m confident Coach Morris will have our best players on the field at the same time, and understand who the best players are. “GO HOGS”
