Way too Early Predictions for the South Carolina, Georgia and the rest of the SEC

Gamecock Guru Johnathan Barnes drops some entertaining Over/Under Predictions.

Every off-season you get these random articles predicting things like the BCS Champs, Heisman Winner, Conference Standings, etc.  They are always months and months before the start of the season though.  Now, here we are…less than a month before USC v. UNC kick off to start the season.  And it is still too early for all of that.  I do, however have some other predictions and over/under’s for each team.


  • Over/Under Targeting (Helmet-to-Helmet) Tackles on Manziel:  4.5
  • Over/Under Mentions of AJ’s girlfriend on DudeYouCrazy:  18.5

DudeYouCrazy officially scores Katherine Webb as a high 7 on a 10-point scale.  But Brent Musburger is praying for an over 18.5...just kidding, he doesn't read this site!
