A little more than a week ago (we’ve played 2 games since), I performed my annual “assign a REALISTIC probability of winning each game and then sum up the probabilities” process on the season (I usually wait until we’re close to the end of our non-conference season so I have something tangible to go off of . . . for both us and our SEC competition).
The result was a 20 win REGULAR season (not including the SECT).
Just posting here for the purpose of documenting. I hope I’m a little low, but - again - I used my most realistic numbers (to the best of my abilities), and that is what it yielded. We’ll see in about 2 months.
I wanted to put more wins, and the excited fan in me really struggled with that. But, on the other hand, there are more really good teams in the SEC this season (or, so it appears) than we’ve had in quite some time. Winning on the road will be difficult, because it’s always hard to win on a good team’s home court. And, I suspect we will be challenged on our own home court more than once. All in all, it should make for an entertaining season.
