Just because

the Hogs lost to Alabama doesn’t portend losses to any of the next six opponents. Reviewing Alabama’s schedule before the season began I believed they would lose at least two games owing to the difficult road games they faced. Now, however, I don’t foresee them losing in the regular season. The Hogs can win five of the next six with a potential Auburn loss. I am anticipating a third straight win over Ole Miss and a third straight win over LSU. 10-3 is entirely
possible with another bowl victory. Saban, please retire soon.

The schedule is easier after the open date, but I don’t know that it’s easy. If Bielema keeps the team together and makes improvement, there will be wins. The key always has been to hold the team together when there are early losses. Bielema has always seemed to do that.
