Official ODB Season Prediction Thread/Poll

With SMU prep kicking off tomorrow, it's time to go on the record with predictions for this coming season.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

A year ago, we did our first ODB Season Prediction Thread, and people were confident.  55% of respondents predicted Baylor would win 10 games or more, 85% 9 or more.  Are people as confident heading into the Bears' first season in their new home?  We'll find out.

Over the last two weeks, I've spent a considerable amount of time and energy preparing Position Previews for each and every position the team.  Here are links to each of those posts.

With all of that, as well as last week's OurDailyPodcast, wherein the crew shared their predictions for this coming season, and Bill Connelly's comprehensive Baylor preview, we should have enough to go on.
