Could easily lose to CU and UF. However, so much can change from year to year. UF and ND are prime examples. Both caught some awesome breaks this year and turned it around a ton since the '11 season mostly with the same personnel. It could be a positive or it could be a rebuilding year.
I had us with 3 losses this year, so hopefully I'm off by 1 again next year - and you are correct.
I always make a prediction on the entire season though, and I think we drop any 3 of
UF, Clemson, UM, our annual letdown game, the ACC Champ game (if we make it), the bowl game.
If we only lose 2 of those, I'd be a happy man.
If Jimbo brings in a good OC to call the plays, or even lets JC call the plays (highly doubtful) then I'm predicting one loss.
If Jimbo keeps calling plays then you can expect 3 to 6 games where the offense sputters MORE THAN THEY SHOULD,
given the competition.
We'll lose at least 2 games and maybe three.
It will be frustrating, b/c there will be teams that we should smash, that we either barely beat or even lose to.
See NCSt, VT, GT and USF this year.
We know what Jimbo is as a playcaller.
Defense will be very good. Need DEs to stay healthy and young LBs to step up.
I think we will lose another wake or nc st type game and another that we should not lose but at least won't make us vomit. This team needs to show up week in and out before we assume they will show up every week.
ol will be slightly above avg-not nearly as good as most posters think it will be next year. dl will be better than expected. lb's will be improved and secondary will be fine.
More to's from the defense.
QB play will be better than it was this year. That in turn will make the wr and even the rb play better. I expect yac to improve because of a more catchable ball.
Overall, i expect much improvement from the offense. Jimbo will be less inclined to outsmart himself with an inexperienced qb. I think people are underestimating this benefit. Lastly, I expect Coker (or Winston) to make better presnap reads than EJ did the last 2 years.
better punting but fg's will be more inconsistent. LASTLY, I EXPECT THE PUNT RETURNER TO SUCCESSFULLY CATCH THE BALL MORE THAN 50 % OF THE TIME.

I think we beat you next year although I think your 2 loss prediction is correct. You got every break known to man this year. That has a way of balancing out.
I think a lot depends on what type of attitude the team has next season on offense. The offense this season didn't play very emotional, business like and sometimes flat. If the O line plays aggressive and nasty with attitude and the QB leads with confidence/swagger the offense can take off. This amount of talent playing with an attitude and a killer instinct would be fun to watch, especially if a more aggressive D feeds them more turnovers to work with.
GO NOLES !!!
