We are all expecting a difficult schedule this upcoming season. Do we make the playoffs with 10 wins? My answer is yes assuming we win one out of three between Oklahoma, Bama, and UGA. Appreciate the opinion of the entire board and GBO!!!

Yes.
I think any SEC teams that go 10-2, gets in. A 9-3 SEC team might even get in depending upon how much parity there is in the top 15-20 teams nationally.
The SEC at worst gets 3 programs in a 12 team playoff. Missouri finished 8th last year with Ole Miss right behind them. I like our chances with 10 wins.

I am not expecting that Nico’s first year. But if we do we will have to play good offense and defense 😂

Assuming wins over NC State and Florida seems premature.

10 Ws would be "on the bubble"...11 Ws would be a LOCK...

9 Ws is more likely the outcome if it is a Good Year.

10 wins would be awesome and I think would get us in the playoffs. The only team getting in with 3 loses will likely be a conference champion.

I think we’re in if our only losses are to UGA and Bama. Oklahoma seems like a wildcard to me. I’ve read that they’ve got some big question marks along the line of scrimmage.

After conference championship weekend in 2023 , five of the top twelve teams had two losses . So yes a two loss Tennessee makes the twelve team playoff in 2024 .

I think 10 wins means a guaranteed spot in the playoffs. It also means we go 6-2 vs the SEC. no way they keep them out if that happens.
I agree. Looking at the final regular season rankings for the last few years. The playoff cut (keep in mind only 11 P5 teams get in) falls right in the middle of the 10-win teams. So considering strength of schedule, a 10-win Sec team should be a lock. A 9-win team probably has no chance. Reason being that a few 10-win teams will probably be left out (Big 10, Big 12, ACC). Maybe political decision, but I don’t think a 9 win SEC team will get in over a 10-win team from a power 5 conference.

Her don’t have nearly as hard of a schedule as usual. As a matter of fact it’s one of the weakest schedules we have had in awhile. Will we make the CFP with 10 wins? I don’t know. I think it would require us to beat 2 of the teams you listed.

I think we narrowly miss out on the playoffs this year.

*Power 4, no more PAC

If our team stays healthy (especially the Oline) we will get 10 wins. Possibly 11. Our defense will keep us in games this year. Secondary is a question mark but we have tons of talent back there.

The offense hits its stride in the Arkansas game.

Yes, any SEC team going 10-2 will be in playoffs IMO
