College Football Predictions Review: Sunbelt Conference

I love predictions. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you love predictions as well. I’ve been making college football predictions for well over a decade now and I don’t like to brag, but I’m pretty damn good at it. I hit way more often than I whiff, but let’s face it….no one is perfect.

Anyway, I’m not the kind of guy who makes predictions and then buries them to never be seen again. Oh no. I like to bring those suckers back and see just how right/wrong I was when I made these predictions back in August.

We are going to break this down conference-by-conference because that’s just how we roll around these parts.

First up? The Sunbelt Conference.

So, without further ado…..

How Did I Do?

Overall, I didn’t do too bad in the Sunbelt Conference. While I failed to nail any of the records spot on, I did manage to predict 8 of the 11 teams within one game of how they actually finished. Not only that, but I correctly predicted who the bad teams were, who the middle-of-the-road teams were and who the top dogs in the conference were.

I may not watch a ton of Sunbelt football, but apparently I know my Sunbelt teams pretty damn well.
