Holding Me Accountable: How Did I Do In My Pre-season Predictions?


In October, I made my predictions of how the season would turn out for the Huskies in the non-conference portion of the season and in the conference season. Always one to be held accountable for my actions, now it is time to see how close I was:

12-NovGeorgia StateWW
13-NovFlorida AtlanticWW
20-Novat Saint LouisWL
25-NovHouston BaptistWW

25-Febat Washington StateWW

3-Marat UCLALL
Conference Record12-614-4
Final Record21-921-9

As you can see, I thought they would do better than they did in the non-conference part of the season. Although I knew (and stated as much in October) that  St. Louis was a possible trap game, I did not see the South Dakota State game coming. As for the conference part of the season, they did better than expected. Mostly it was because I figured Arizona would be better than they were. But, all in all, I ended up getting the overall record right. On a game-by-game basis, I missed on 6 of the 30 games, which gives me an 83.3% success rate. I guess that is good enough for a B-grade this season.
