On Sunday, at 5:30 central time, the SMU football season kicks off! Whoo! FOOTBALL! (Said in my best southern voice.) Last year I made a prediction about SMU’s record before the season began, and I wasn’t too far off. I thought they would go 8-4, they actually went 7-5 (although the loss against Navy was ridiculous – seriously SMU? That’s still upsetting.). Anywho.
I had predicted they’d lose to TCU, but beat Tulsa. In fact, they lost to Tulsa (what?), but beat TCU (boo yah!!).
They’re going to play in the Big East the season after this one, so the hope is to leave good ol’ Conference USA on a high note. (Which means we’ll have to beat Houston … gulp.)
Anywho, time to get down to it!
|9/2||@ Baylor||Win (you’d better)|
|9/8||v Stephen F. Austin||Win (or the tears will fall)|
|9/15||v Texas A&M||Loss (I’m not kidding myself here)|
|9/29||v TCU (Fam Wknd)||Loss (SMU won last year, TCU will be angry)|
|10/27||v Memphis (Homecoming)||Win|
|11/10||v Southern Miss||Loss|
|11/24||v Tulsa||Win (don’t lose to THEM, they’re in Oklahoma!)|
Sorry, Oklahoma, but you’re easy to make fun of.
Overall predicted record: 8-4 (I’m consistent).
I almost want to put an asterisk next to every game where I have predicted a win, because SMU is still really shaky in my mind. I have seen them play quite a few games that they really have lost due to their own silly mistakes.
Here’s hoping this season is a good one!
