College Football Predictions Review: Conference U.S.A.

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.

Next up? Conference U.S.A.

So, without further ado…..

How Did I Do?:

Not good.

Seriously. This was an ugly season for my Conference U.S.A. predictions. Honestly though…who really saw most of this coming? Who saw Marshall going from a double digit win team the last three seasons to the laughing stock of the conference? Who thought that Old Dominion (who has been an FBS team for like two years) would finish second-place in the conference? There were all sorts of wacky things going on in the Conference U.S.A. this season and no one could predict what was going to happen.

The only thing I really got right was I had Western Kentucky winning the conference and they did. Isn’t that the most important part though? I’m going to go ahead and tell myself it is just to make myself feel a little better.

Either way, I obviously gotta get going. Looks like I have A LOT of home work to do on next year’s Conference U.S.A. teams.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
