This year’s college football season is clearly wide open in some areas and boringly predictable in others. Between three people making predictions, two of us have the same SEC Champion and Heisman Trophy winner, and we all have the same SEC Championship game.

But things are a bit more exciting if you dig deeper into the picks. Sure, we have the same SEC championship game. But we all have totally different picks when it comes to the SEC standings, which makes things interesting.
On top of that, our College Football Playoff projections are all over the place. As we mentioned, we each have a different national championship team, and the three of us have a total of nine different programs in contention for the four-team tournament this year.
Another interesting twist is how each of us views the Tennessee Vols, the team we all cover. Sure, we all had them going 7-6 this year in our Friday game-by-game predictions. But it’s also true that we disagree on their SEC record, and while one of us had them finishing fifth in the East, the other two of us had them finishing third.
That’s mainly due to how weak the division is this year, and it’s totally wide open. The second through seventh place spots in the East are all up for grabs, even if we all agreed that the Vanderbilt Commodores and Kentucky Wildcats would be at the bottom.
So like any college football season, there are things we expect to be predictable this year, and there are things that could be wide open. It all depend. However, what’s clear is that we don’t know how any of this will play out.
