Couple things. 1) So even after last year, there are people out there who think we CAN WIN 10 games? 2) if we start blowing out ..... My daddy always said, "boy, if a dog had a square a$$hole it wold shi! bricks." Your post is interesting, I just in a very negative mood about our outlook.What would you think the chances are of winning all 4 of these games based a historical Vegas odds if the lines are still true on game day? Answer - about 23%.
Here is how it breaks down
About a 60% chance of beating Mich St at -3.5
About an 85% chance of beating Wake at -14
About a 70% chance of beating UVA at -7
About a 65% chance of beating FSU at -6.5
Just pointing this out for those who think winning 10 games is a given.
Now, if we start blowing teams out or if our opponents are worse than now thought then that changes everything.
BTW, the posted % is based on 16 years of data and about 12500 games-so pretty reliable.
