Ok folks, tonight is SMU’s season opener and it’ll be a tough one (so tough that I am expecting to only be able to watch a half before I am too sad to fully pay attention). Let’s ignore that for now and look back at my record so far.
In 2011 I predicted the Mustangs would go 8-4. Instead they went 7-5, winning a bowl game to bring them to 8-5. (I didn’t predict all of the games correctly, for example I thought they’d lose to TCU but they actually beat them.)
In 2012 I predicted the Mustangs would go 8-4 … Instead they went 6-6 (overall 7-6 because of a bowl game win).
My prediction skills, like the Mustangs abilities, apparently decreased.
With that in mind, here are my 2013 predictions!
Anywho, time to get down to it!
|8/30||v Texas Tech||Nope. Nope nope nope.|
|9/7||v Montana State||Bounce back game!|
|9/21||@ Texas A&M||I may skip watching this one|
|9/28||@ TCU||Victory! (It’s unlikely but why not?)|
|10/06||Rutgers (Family Weekend)||Loss|
|10/18||v Temple (Homecoming)||Win|
Overall predicted record: 5-7. (And I have to admit, that’s optimistic.)
2013 will be a year of cheering on SMU without getting too into the games so that I can avoid frustration and anger. Or, I’ll just listen to or watch games and get angry – turn on my NCAA football game and play that while continuing to listen/watch and at least in the virtual world SMU will be good.
