      14-0 isn’t a possibility, unless 13-0 and left out of playoffs? 12-0 puts them in PAC champ game, already beating Stanford, Washington, Oregon, USC, UCLA to get there, assume 13-0 and playoffs. At that point either 13-1, 14-1, or 15-0..

          I get where you were going, but 14-0 Dr Hill should be fired for his ooc scheduling…

      This is what I’m hoping for. 

      I think 8 wins or better is the expectation next year.

    Missing OSU and Cal again sucks… I predict 9-3.

    Losses are Washington, Stanford (road) and UCLA (one of those stupid road Friday games following the USC home game)

      Huh? We lost Lowell and Moko, but that’s it. We return Anae and Fotu and Penisini and Tafua is better than whoever started opposite Anae last year. 

      Hansen will be a LB and Thompson was a beast and even Barton was very good to end the season. Our front seven will be just fine this fall.

          Did we ever really have Fitts? Too much injury.

        I think it’ll be another growing season. That’s a lot of experience to lose, + the o-line still developing, Carrington, and no experienced backup QB.

          Our OL will be one of the most experienced in the country. And Jason Shelley was here all last year at QB. 

          Our starting LB’ers will be Hansen and Thompson. Thompson was a starter last year and Hansen is a NFL guy and all conference guy. Our LB’ers will be better next year. 

          Our OL will be much better. 

          Fotu was a starter last year. Tafua is better than whoever we had opposite Anae. Anae will be better. So, out of the 4 DL spots, our only question mark is the other DT next to Fotu. 

          We aren’t nearly as inexperienced as you think we are. We are stacked. We were the #3 PAC-12 defense last year. 

          I expect that if not more next year.

            Tafua was a 3* rated by rivals and 247, ESPN gave him the 4*, and he hasn’t played since 2014. I’ll wait and see before claiming him better than Fitts or anybody else. Tupai still hasn’t contributed and he was much better recruit.

            Shelly and Tuttle have 0 game experience.

              No one said he was better than Fitts. Fitts was the best DE we’ve ever had.

              But, Fitts didn’t really play for us in PAC-12 play.

              To say we are replacing Fitts, when he didn’t play….homie don’t play that. We aren’t replacing Fitts. We are replacing Repp or Henninger.

              And Tafua has been with Utah all last season on the scout team. You think what you want, but when Whitt and others around the program say he the starter across from Anae already…we’ve upgraded over last year.

              And I haven’t mentioned Tuapi. Tafua is better than Tuapi. Tupai’s future is at the DT spot.

                  What about? Fitts being injured?

                  Tafua being with the team last year? 

                  Or Fitts being the best DE we’ve ever had? I stand by that as well. He single handily dominated teams. Three TO’s vs BYU in the Vegas Bowl were in direct consequence to his play. He was unreal.

                Agree to disagree.

                Until the d-line, o-line, and LB’s prove on the field they’re better than last year, I’m not going to raise expectations to 9+ wins, that’s absurd. ASU, UA, and UCLA are unknowns; Colorado, WSU, and OOC schedule should be W’s. Oregon, USC, Washington, and Stanford are not teams to start expecting W’s over.

    10-2. Huntley and Moss have a breakout season and our lockdown corners take a huge step. Sack Lake City has a rebirth.

    Either 9-3 or 8-4. Most likely 8-4 again.

      Yeah, I think it’ll be 9 but if the Utes have “One of those games”, the one they have no business losing, it’ll be 8.

    Although it’s fun to speculate, in a way I hate prediction threads. As always, it will come down to injuries (our and opponents) which are impossible to predict. We’re always assuming everyone is healthy when we make predictions, and that’s never the case.

      I understand what you are saying but as the sample size grows larger random variation would predict we would eventually win the South assuming we were on fairly equal talent and coaching levels with the competition. At some point, and I don’t know when, if we don’t win the South you just need to say either the coaching and/or the talent is sub-par to the point that the normal distribution of luck variability cant even overcome the inherent deficits. I’m just sayin….
