At the beginning of the season, I predicted State to go 7-5 with losses to LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Alabama and Arkansas.
I predicted Ole Miss to go 6-6 with losses to California, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Texas A&M, and MSU.
So far, that means for MSU I missed on the LSU game and I’m hoping I was wrong about Arkansas too. I’m adjusting the prediction to 9-3.
For Ole Miss I missed on Arkansas, that I thought they’d beat. I now do NOT think they’ll beat Kentucky, or A&M either, putting them at 4-8.
I had predicted that the year could be as bad as 5-7 for State or as good as 10-2 for Ole Miss. I REALLY missed the direction the two teams were going to go this year, with State being a LOT better than I thought (even with a really tough schedule) and Ole Miss being a HELL of a lot WORSE than I’d thought. Sadly for Ole Miss I don’t think the next couple of years are going to be any better for them with the NCAA stuff hanging over them; while State seems to have a pretty good season on call for next year. We’ll see.
