This is not a prediction thread. Just who of our 2014 opponents (fans and players) do you think believe they will get a "W" when they play us? Several are obvious, Georgia who thinks they will win every game every year, Miami because they seem to own us, Clempsen because we aren't Georgia, FSU, or South Carolina. I think Pittsburgh will be confident, because they played us very tight last year and they get us at home this year. UNC probably believes they can beat us every year, they just don't. I think VPI has some doubt and is probably worrried about us, but when they look at their own schedule they have to see us a win because they have a handful of potential losses looming. As I see it, everyone else "hopes" they can play a great game and beat us, but recent history would say Duke and UVA and NCST probably won't beat us and the other three know they are outmanned.
Apparently Georgia Southern fans think they are going to handle us. They've had a thread going on their board for a while talking about how they are going to beat us.
I would say Georgia, Clemson and Miami every single year put us down as a W, as they should. No one else on our schedule should do that, even Virginia Tech. Say what you want about VT, 1-5, Foster owns PJ, blah blah blah but every single game against them has come down to the final minute in the PJ era. A missed tackle here, a terrible personal foul call there and we're 3-2 against them. They should definitely believe that they will beat Georgia Tech but if they believe it's an automatic win, they are terribly mistaken.
