Back to the beginning…
On the first day of the 2008 season (at least it is for us), we start to focus all of our attention forward. But as I’m cleaning through a bunch of emails I’ve saved over the season, I just came across one with all the predictions of the "experts" at the beginning of the 2007 season and found it interesting.
Some have done pretty well with their predictions, others were more than just a little off. No one actually got them all right, but it makes for interesting reading…
Some of the others like Fox Sports and NBC Sports are now dead links so you can’t go back and check them out.
And Diamond Leung of the Press Enterprise posted this link a while back that actually has standings based on predictions. It hasn’t been updated yet this week, though.
I almost forgot how many people were picking us to win at the beginning of the year, but as they say, that’s why they play the games on the field, not on paper.
Anyway, it’s something to look back before we turn all our attention forward.
