I'd be surprised if this team can go .500 in the SEC.
Should win but not a lock (7): Alabama, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, at Ole Miss, Arkansas, Ole Miss, South Carolina.
Could win but a toss-up at best (6): at USC, at Texas A&M, at Arkansas, LSU, Kentucky, at Georgia
Likely losses (5): Tennessee, at Auburn, at Tennessee, at Florida, at Mississippi State
That might be a little generous. Can you squeeze nine wins out of those first 13 games? Not much margin for error. And you're going to have to win some road games to sniff .500, because I'm not sure MU has the firepower to beat Tennessee at home. I think the Vols are genuine national championship contenders.
