With the 2009 FSU football season kicking off in less than 3 weeks, the time has come to post the results of how you expect your Noles will perform and where we will finish up come January.
First of all, I would like to thank all of the Tomahawk Nation Members who voted, including all of those new members who joined because of the quality of the contents that are found here, and so that their votes would be counted in this very scientific and professional poll of the most knowledgeable FSU football fans on any of the Nole boards anywhere, including any of those other neo-nazi oriented pay sites.
Please continue reading for results.
You the TN members, had already decided that this 2009 team would show much Progression in the Defensive Line, the Receivers/Tight End, the Secondary, the Offensive Backfield, the Linebackers, and the Offensive Line, while the Special Teams would regress, due mainly to the loss of Graham Gano.
I then asked you to predict how many games this years squad would win, and if that included the ACC Championship or not.
65% of the voters expect the Noles to win the ACC Championship this year for the first time since 2005 and for the 13th time in school history, while finishing with a 12-2 record at best, a 9-5 record at worst, and with a 10-4 record being the most popular.
Here are the results and the final breakdown of the Poll asking you how many games the FSU Seminoles would win in 2009.
30% think we will win 10 games and the ACC Championship.
19% think we will win 9 games and the ACC Championship.
10% think we will win 11 games and the ACC Championship.
9% think we will win 10 games but not the ACC Championship.
6% think we will win 12 games and the ACC Championship.
6% think we will win 9 games but not win the ACC Championship.
6% think we will win 8 games but not win the ACC Championship.
3% very optimistic readers think we will win 14 games, the ACC Championship, and I would have to assume that includes winning the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR, since we will be undefeated with the nations 2nd hardest SOS, and would have gone gator gigging on November 28th.
FOR THOSE 3%, THIS IS ESPECIALLY FOR YOU!
1% think we will win 13 games and the ACC Championship,
1% think we will win 11 games but not the ACC Championship.
The rest of the votes were less than 1% and/or cast by non-members and discarded.
Now you can all sit back and enjoy this season of PROGRESSION, knowing that your votes have been counted and tabulated, and come the middle of January, we will return here to see how you did.
Once again, thanks to everyone who played along, and "ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL"?
