Call me Crazy Jr..7-5. I think our offense will score..and the defense will have its ups and downs. I feel we get at least 1 big time upset this year..the Gators seem most likely..it comes after our 1st bye week..and I dont see the anemic Gators offense being that much better this year..Im calling it..a ugly..tough battle that sees the Cats come out on top 24-17.
With the teams we play it will be tough to reach a bowl game. We do however, have 7 home, one neutral site and only 4 away games. With how the staff is working and with the (surprisingly) added strong work promoting the program we might surprise a lot of people. If we get off to a strong start with the added fan support and the players start beliving in themselves I see no reason we cannot shock a lot of people.
With a strong start I actually think only the Alabama game is a sure loss. Other games are winable at CWS. Worst case is 2 wins, but we can win as many as 6.
Neutral site games:
I don't see us losing this one.
All these are going to be tough, but we should have a chance to win one or two.
Worst case: 4 wins
Best case: 8 wins
Probably: 5 or 6 wins
I'm going to say 5-7, but I think UK has a better shot at being 6-6 than 4-8.
Probably 5-7 butt would have to improve a lot and with some luck may get to 7-5 best case scenario.
12-0 that is all!!!
I've always been an optimist when it comes to UK footbal and I sure as heck am not changing now. I think we could have/should have won a couple more games last year barring some of the more serious injuries. So, I think that this team can get to 6-6 and earn a bowl bid. Our Wins will come from these:
an additional upset from UL, Fla, or Vandy.
5 - 6 going into the TN game. I'll be an optimist and say we beat the Vols, go 6 - 6 and back to the Music City Bowl.
If we do win 7 games with this schedule Stoops should be COY in the SEC.
I'm gonna say 6-6 though.
I will say 5-7. But with the amount of improvement and excitement we see everyone will think we have gone 12-0. I think past history with these coaches says they can coach as well as if not better than they recruit and we see a much better future ahead this December than we could have ever thought last December
Shock the world baby! 14-0! WHooooooo!!
Hey, it's preseason and EVERY game is a winnable game.
More likely we go 6-6 with wins over WKU, Miami(OH), Miss St, AL ST, Mizz, TN
14-0 everybody can dream

It sure would be great to finally beat Florida. And I'd love that even more because then I would get to listen to them CRY for a change! Well, a guy can dream anyway, can't he?
We beat Florida I will dye my hair blue and post a pic.
5 wins, but one will be a big upset. Maybe Florida, but probably someone later in the year, after we've had a chance to start to gel.
We will win one we shouldn't and lose one at the end of a right game against a team we should beat.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
I'm predicting 5-7 with 4-8 being the next most likely record result. While the staff would love to make a bowl this year, and we could end up with an Ole Miss like recruiting class if that happened, the schedule is just way too difficult. I think by the end of the season we'll have at least 10 freshmen on the 2-deep and given that we have only 3 seniors on the team this season who would start in 2014 if they had another year of eligibility, we have a chance to make things really interesting in the SEC East in 2014.
With that said, this team would beat last year's team by at least 4 TDs if they played on a neutral site. My goal for this season is to get our conference margin of defeat into the single digits. Last season we lost to SEC teams by an average of like 25 points and even that wasn't reflective of how bad our team was since one of the blowouts got called in the 3rd quarter and many other teams just ran HB Dives in the 4th quarter to run out the clock.
I can't wait for the WKU game!
I'll take 5-7 after 2-10...if stoops wins 7 or more others will come calling and we don't want that to happen.
Put me in the 5-7 club.
Im not as worried about record as i am direction and improving.
Gotta beat mizzou at home...beat UT and win the games we "should" and 6 isnt out of the question.
