Steele’s SEC bowl projections

Still waiting on the preview mag, but stuff is already dribbling out like this:

Tennessee becoming bowl eligible is a bit of a bummer, but Florida in Memphis for the holidays?  Man, Dan Mullen’s genius rep would take a hit over that one.

  1. Kentucky not getting to 6 wins would be a surprise to many.

    He also has the bowl-ineligible Missouri making a bowl

    Might be bad for his genius status, but Beale Street would be great for his dancing game.

    Seems about right. I would guess that a lot of people will be picking Michigan this preseason. You have to pick bama and clemson and then there is one more spot.

    Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, and Notre Dame are only other teams that are likely contenders.

    I would guess that USC and Florida fans would be unhappy with those bowls, but the rest of the teams would be pretty happy with their seasons.

    I like Phil Steele. It is a good lead in to start the season on. It also helps in our college football draft every year. We do 8 rounds of draft and their are 15 players. When a team gets drafted they are off the board. Only wins count in the regular season for your 8 teams. maximum of 10 wins. It makes those west coast games more fun to watch during the season. This is our 18th season drafting.

    Where’s the Citrus Bowl? Still Pig 10 vs. SEC right?

    If it plays out that way, I like Georgia’s chances against Clemson. Dawgs are better than Bama on the back end (DB)….based on last year anyways. I also think that UGA will be as good if not better this year. Clemson loses too much.

    Besides, 42–18–4….DAWGS! We got that going 4 us.

    Isn’t Mizzou not eligible?

    FU seems to fall about where I think they will. 8-4. In a lower tier bowl.

    They’re gonna lose to LSU, Auburn, us, and either Kentucky or Mizzou. Either way, that’s 8-4 and a lower tier bowl.

    Then of course, the ‘turds will all complain that their schedule was so much more difficult than ours, how Mullen actually had a better year than Kirby because of that, and how Kirby still ain’t accomplished shit.

    Dawgs will run the table regular season and then beat Bama and the refs in the SECG. In the Playoff the lovely and talented Touchdown Trevor Lawrence will matriculate the ball to the GEORGIA endzone with grace and ease. But then he’ll sprain his neck walking like an Egyptian in celebration. The Dawgs will then proceed to spank that Tiger ass for the 43rd time and humiliate the Tide in the NCG so badly that Sabanocchio will decide he needs to spend more time with his family. Dabo goes home to coach but falls flat on his face as the Bama players can’t stop laughing at the new goober in charge. Clemson coaxes Richt out of retirement and he goes on to win 10 games a year there beating the nerds every year at BDS but never winning the big one.
    Dawgs Dynasty reigns supreme for many years and Russ is extracted by the White Blackhawk to join the Great Ranger In The Sky.

    Yeah I’m drinking that Red Kool aid.

    Yeah, Ole Kevin is really going out on a limb with these projections. Bama, and Clemson in the final. Those two teams between them have won how many natties in a row now? Six? I lost count and am too lazy to look it up. Steele is the new Mr. Conventional Wisdom.

    Loves me some Steele, hardest working dude in CFB media (would hate his “life”), but he is wrong about both UGA and Bama getting in this year. Both won’t, and shouldn’t, be as long as the playoffs does not accommodate all Power 5 conference champs, imo. The Committee allowed Bama in 2 years ago, and while they were probably one of the best four teams that year, they knew damn well they were playing for a spot in that game against Auburn. The point is, we never know who the best four are. Regardless of how strongly everyone feels that they do know, we don’t, and excluding an tire conference of teams when there is so little interaction, is just wrong.

    That said, I am happy with what we have to look forward to this season, and I am not intimidated by having to beat the winner of the West to earn our spot. Great to have such wide respect, and we seem worthy of it in 2019. All you can ask for is a chance at winning another ring(s).

      They ended up being correct to place ‘Bama in the top four and they can place Georgia there for the same reason, no matter the outcome of the SECC.
