That is the way I see this team...a team good enough to beat Florida; but a team also bad enough to lose to MSU. When you stuggle this much on offense...I just forsee them being all over the place. A very inconsistent season is what I forecast. Some extremely ugly low scoring games...a sample of which we have already seen.

17-13. I hope for better but conference play will be unkind IMO

I can't see 20 w's without maymon. I hope it happens but our offense was built around him and I don't know if we can run it through stokes alone. McRae has to step up. Bottom line

I expect a lot of very ugly performances on the road. Hopefully, the team stays together, plays well at home, and finds a couple of road wins somewhere.

So...I thought now that appears we will be Maymonless for the remainder of the season, I was curious to everyone's predictions the rest of the way. I think it'll be interesting as many seemed very high on the team pre season, but now some have this as a 15 team win. The predictions should be all over the map which makes this even more fun IMO...here's the remaining schedule with my prediction.

CURRET RECORD 7-3

Vs. Xavier W
Vs. Memphis L
Vs. Ole Miss W
@Alabama W
@Kentucky L
Vs. Mississippi State W
@ Ole Miss L
Vs. Bama W
Vs. Vandy W
@Arkansas L
Vs. Georgia W
@South Carolina W
@Vandy W
Vs. Kentucky W
Vs. LSU W
@Texas A&M L
Vs. Florida L
@Georgia W
@Auburn W
Vs. Missouri L

Final Record 20-10(12-6)
It's possible since the SEC appears to be pretty weak.

Yea, I mean there's some teams in the SEC worse than UMASS and Western Carolina, so if we come to play I honestly see a minimum of 8-9 conference wins. Then at home this team has shown they can beat a good team (Wichita State), so I think they pull a couple home games against good SEC teams.

I think 11-12 SEC wins is where we end up which puts us now at 18-19 wins on the season, that's with 2 more OOC games left (Xavier and Memphis).

I truly think those 2 games may set the tone. We win both those and we have ourselves in great position and IMO really are playing for seeding in the tourney at that point. However, lose those 2 and we're gonna have a big time hill to climb to get back into the dance.

We are going to need a lot more out of Kenny Hall in order to reach 20 wins.

If this team loses to Miss St at home then this will be an awful season. Miss St is horrible this year. They are in complete rebuild mode.

Also, if UT loses to Xavier then there will be cause for concern. This year's Xavier team is not that good. They lost to an average at best Candy team at home and just lost to Wofford at home.

UT can play with and beat a lot of teams at home. They can lose to a lot of teams on the road. If they can take care of business at home and steal a few on the road then they'll be on the bubble IMO.

I don't see them beating Fla this year. Luckily, we get them at home. I think Fla or Mizzou takes the title this year. If I had to lay money, I'd put it on Fla right now.

This is the same record I see. I think we'll be tough in TBA, 2 losses at most, but I think we'll have a really tough time on the road, I hope i'm wrong.

we will be luck to surpass last years 19-15 mark, 15-19 looks more likely. This team is horrible without maymon. maymon was the glue. watching defensive basketball is boring. bring back bruce.

Yeah...I just don't think Kenny has it in him.

Hope he proves me wrong!

Kinda hard to go 15-19 when we play 30 games, just saying.

That's the thing that kills me, and why I don't even reply in many threads. People say we're horrible, and other crazy things.. then don't even know how many games the team plays.

Good grief.
