Time for some way too early predictions:

vs. William & Mary - W
at Indiana - W
at North Carolina - L
vs. Southern Mississippi - W
vs. Idaho - W
vs. Georgia Tech - W
vs. N.C. State - L
at Miami -- Thursday, ESPN, 8 p.m. - L
at Maryland - L
vs. Duke - W
at Florida State - L
vs. Virginia Tech - L

6-6 sounds achievable... or am I being too optimistic? ACC will be stronger next year, and it will be crucial to win the non-conference games.

before you pencil in the W against W&M, remember what happened in 2009

I'm not saying the W&M game should be a cakewalk... they'll have a brand new QB in his first game out, and with Keith Payne gone someone will have to step up to get the running game moving. But I think London will have them ready - he knows how important it is to get that first win.

No way - NO WAY - Virginia loses to W&M again. London will never let that happen, and definitely won't overlook them. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me to see a blowout. The fan base needs to see that.

6-6 isn't good enough. With that schedule, 8-4 is doable. Should come into the bye week at either 4-1 or 5-0 if they handle Carolina. They can definitely get 3-4 wins out of the second half of the schedule. I don't see them losing to Maryland at home or NC State at home, and they'd better destroy Duke.

8-4? 8-4? Have you not been watching these guys? I am a die-hard Hoos fan, and I see 3-9 likely and maybe 4-8. This team hasn't been right since George Welsh left in 2000, and I don't know why.

3-9 is a little harsh, but it will all depend on the QB play. Let's hope one of these young guys London is developing turns into the next Matt Schaub.
