Blurred Visions

It was December 29th of last year. I was taking a last-gasp 2005 vacation day and was pleased to accept Tony’s invitation to sit alongside on his show that day. I had watched the Vols upend Alabama A&M the night before and as I have a tendency to do was under the misguided impression that someone in the listening audience would actually be interested in hearing how I thought the rest of the season would play out. Of course anyone desperate enough to put stock in a prediction made by a guy that ex-friends hung the moniker “Beano” on would probably like another coaching candidate referral from Roy Williams. Proving that I am more psycho than psychic the following was my Bruce Benedict-like vision from that day:

VOL’S RECORD ON 12-29-05: 7-1

My predictions on that day were as follows

Lipscomb, S Alabama, Georgia, S Carolina, Ole Miss, Auburn

@LSU, @Memphis, Florida, @Kentucky, @Alabama, @Florida, @Vandy

Note: My 12-29 predictions for toss-up games are in parenthesis. I picked the Vols to go 3-3 in these games.
@ S Carolina (L) @ Miss St (W) Vandy (W) @ Georgia (W) Arkansas (L) Kentucky (L)

Non-Conference 9-2; SEC 7-9; SEC Tourney 1-1
TOTAL 17-12

For those keeping score at home I correctly predicted the 6 likely wins, the losses at LSU and Memphis and tossup game wins at Mississippi St, Vandy at home and at Georgia.

I incorrectly picked the Vols to lose at South Carolina, Florida in Knoxville and at Kentucky.

Also from the breakdown above you will notice that for the remaining regular season games (at Bama, at Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky, and at Vandy) I picked my beloved Vols to win ZIP, ZILCH, NADA. Note to self: You sir are a moron.

What are my revised visions for the remainder of the season you ask? Oh you didn’t? I don’t blame you. I think we’ve both suffered enough.
