I've read that the playoff committee puts a lot weight on winning your conference. With the perception of the B1G, I would suspect it would be difficult for us to make make the playoff without a win in the B1G CG... Not impossible, of course, but probably unlikely.

So hard to figure because of our backup QB situation and if a couple starters on the Oline go down EEEEEEK. If we stay reasonable healthy we will run the table but I think it's the defense that will win the day. No games in the sixties because Braxton will get pulled when it's out of reach. Too risky to leave him in for more points.

Every year we predict an undefeated season. I think we have a decent shot but for some unknown reason I think we lose to Penn State. Don't ask me why but Franklin has that first year Urban feel (bad team previous year, sophomore high rated qb, SEC guy) and it would and will suck if we lose to them and please don't shoot me I'm just saying what I'm feeling.

BANG!!! Jk! But honestly, I think urban already has the plan mapped out in his head, he will destroy Franklin, just to simply prove a point..and then Franklin will lift his leg in the air, and lick his wounds like a little kitten..

Another White Out at Happy Valley and yet again another blowout to the Penn St hopeful.

Penn State does not have the talent or the depth to compete with tOSU, no matter who their QB is. Honestly, who is he going to throw the ball to that scares you? Who do they have upfront that makes you think that they will be able to establish a ground game vs our defensive front? I agree that he is doing great things but they are going to need another year or two to be competitive. I think their first realistic chance to beat tOSU will be in 2016 if their QB comes back for a 4th year and I'm not sold on that year either with the talent that tOSU has been stocking up the 2 years before Franklin even started recruiting for Penn St.

Overall we finish 13-1 but 12-2 wouldn't surprise me either.

Some of these insanely high score predictions for every game scare me more than the football team does. Why? Because the 70-7 win people are the ones who make reading the comments hard after any win.

Oh God, please no. This would be my nightmare.

We've all heard it before I'm sure and I'm hoping this is the year we shut them up.

You guys have got some good ones. I'll tell you what though, I'm very optimistic about our defense which was much better than we give them credit for. I think the offense this year will be much better than last year as well, but I think the Silver Bullets are BACK this season. When you're 9th against the run & 3rd in sacks, there's only one clear area that will need and see visible improvement with the likes of Bell, Powell, Apple, Conley, Smith, Lattimore, & Webb looking ready to contribute to the secondary from the start.

I bet we play with more pride this year than before and pitch several shut outs.

Aug. 30  vs. Navy (at Baltimores M&T Bank Stadium) W 60-3 (we remember what happened when we didn't utterly destroy Buffalo, so I fully expect them to come out and set the tone for the season.)

I think the important thing is we will know what type of team we have heading into MSU. If Braxton is healthy and defense improves to even something like a Top 30 defense we will be fine in East Lansing. I think the VT game, although they arent ranked, is an excellent barometer game for us. Cal had us thinking fools gold last year. If we can put it on VT and win by 3 scores I think that is an sign of things to come. If we struggle at home at night againt VT then our season could play out much like last season.
