What’ s your prediction for the football season?

We all know that now that we are into July, it will be over in no time.

You know what that means. August. Football will be back.

How are we feeling about this year? I am generally positive, so I can see 8 wins. If everything goes right, and we don’t step on our own feet. So maybe 6, but I hope 8.

Even with reflection over that last few years, I still think it could happen. I may be delusional or be drinking too much Kool-Aid.

What are your thoughts?

Now, here are your flakes.
