Expectations will always be sky high on the maximum Power 5 projects before the season.
Almost every fan on every show dreams of magical runs for a championship or an upper tier bowl dance, but the truth is, most fans will be disappointed by these high expectations.
What should fans expect? What is the reasonable expectation for your team?
We look after every Power 5 project in the country and give every team a realistic win expectation. These are not the racing odds you see overseas or in Las Vegas. No, these are my personal expectations for each team and I hope fans keep these realistic expectations in mind as they try to provide the right perspective for the upcoming season.
Today we end with SEC, the only Power 5 conference to be scheduled for this fall. Alabama and Georgia are the most favorite to meet in the SEC Championship game, but ups and downs occur during the extended conference season, right? The conference is breaking down all four new head coaches while replacing several star quarterbacks, including LSU’s Heisman Trophy winner. Joe Burrow. Can there be chaos in SEC?
Most importantly, as a fanatical fan, how can you keep this season in perspective? How many wins should you realistically expect for your team? My success totals and descriptions can be found below.
