Nunnsense: 2017 Louisville Football Game By Game Predictions

Last year I wrote that I believed Louisville could win 11 games but I kept my prediction at 10-2 because I feared that one unexplainable loss. Well after a 9-1 start, I felt 11 wins was a definite. I was a firm believer that Louisville would beat an over hyped Houston team. I was wrong. I don’t think I was alone in believing that there was no way that the team 65 miles east of us could come into our house and win. I was wrong again.

 

This preseason is very similar to last years. Las Vegas has set our win total at 9.5 again this year. There is a lot of hype again also. I believe the difference this year is that this team is better than last years team and the schedule is not as tough. The key to the season is the first 3 games. If Louisville can go 3-0 then 11 wins seems more likely. A loss to UNC and Clemson could mean a 8 or 9 win season. Another factor that I think people are forgetting is that this is Bobby Petrino’s 4th season. In case you forgot what that means, let me remind you. In Petrino’s 4th year at Louisville the first time around,  Louisville went 12-1 and finished 6th in the country. In his 4th year at Arkansas, they were 11-2 and finished 5th in the country. So if my beliefs are correct, then it’s reasonable to predict that Louisville will go over the projected 9.5 win total set by Las Vegas. While I also believe there is a small chance that Louisville can run the table, I won’t predict that because I don’t want to be the hot take guy. I honestly believe that this team has a very good shot to be 11-1 but I fear that one game that nobody can explain what happened, so I’ll predict a 10-2 season although below I will predict 11 wins because I don’t know where the second loss will come from and I don’t want there to be a second loss.
