Florida Gators Season Prediction, What Will Happen

It’s Florida. Even with the mass losses through the transfer portal there’s a ton of talent in place and more coming through a strong recruiting class.

It’s Florida. Even if there’s supposed to be a rebuilding process to go from good to national title great, there’s not going to be a lot of time allowed for a grace period.

It’s Florida. It’s going to be good under Billy Napier, but the schedule might not help as much as everyone would like.

Set The Florida Gators Regular Season Win Total At … 8.5

Start with the positives. There’s no Alabama to face, and not playing Ole Miss or Arkansas this year – or Auburn, or Mississippi State – isn’t a bad thing.

Also, there are enough winnable games to at least not sweat out a bowl game. That shouldn’t be where any bar is set in Gainesville, but  in Year One under a new regime, it’s a start.

Starting out against Utah isn’t given at home, and finishing up at Florida State in Tallahassee will be tough.

In between there’s a road game at Tennessee, LSU – as always – is on the slate, and then there’s the killer two-week stretch against Georgia and at Texas A&M.

It’s Florida. It’s going to be a problem for all of those other teams in those tough games, too. It’ll work its way to eight wins in an improved year, but factor in three losses somewhere in the mix to go along with one 50/50 game.

Seven wins will be okay, eight will be fine, nine or more would be terrific, but …

It’s Florida. It’s time to start winning more.
