David Lamm Looks Ahead to 2013 with Predictions

Dec 21, 2012 -- 1:59pm


Expectations and, in some cases, hopes for 2013:

  • The Jaguars fire General Manager Gene Smith. Nothing personal, but he has done a horrible job. The Jaguars may have the weakest roster in the NFL.
  • Unless some freshmen step in and make major contributions immediately at wide receiver, the Gators will not win the SEC East, much less the SEC title.
  • Tiger Woods wins a major championship.
  • The Angels will regret signing Josh Hamilton to a 5-year, $125-million contract. I’ll be surprised if they get more than one outstanding season from him.
  • The Jaguars’ starting quarterback on opening day is not currently on the team’s roster.
  • The self-proclaimed NFL draft experts will look foolish – again – when the draft ends.
  • Maurice Jones-Drew will not play for the Jaguars.
  • Coach Nick Saban will still be coaching Alabama, not the Cleveland Browns or any other NFL team.
  • The Heat won’t repeat as NBA champs, but the new title holder won’t be the Knicks.
  • Florida’s Billy Donovan will not leave for another college job or the NBA.
  • Tickets to Miami Marlins games will be inexpensive. Dirt cheap, in fact.
  • FSU, minus a quality quarterback, will struggle and Jimbo Fisher will coach his last season with the Seminoles.
  • Tim Tebow will be the starting quarterback on opening day for some NFL team – and it won’t be the Jets or the Jaguars.
  • Alabama will stomp Notre Dame in the BCS Championship Game.
  • Justin Blackmon will be another of Gene Smith’s first-round draft busts. He’s lazy, physically and mentally.
  • There will be a major push nationally to change the racist nickname of the NFL’s Washington franchise. I’ve been pushing for a change for years.
  • SEC defensive coordinators will figure out a way to slow down Texas a&M QB Johnny Manziel.
  • The Eagles’ Andy Reid will be unemployed the shortest amount of time of the half dozen NFL head coaches who get fired after this season.
  • UNF basketball coach Matthew Driscoll will be courted by at least one big-time basketball school to take over its program.
  • Colin Montgomerie is a worthy addition to the World Golf Hall of Fame.
