K30 staff predictions for the 2018 Aztecs football season

IMG_2813

You’ve argued about the media day poll. You’ve studied all of Bill Connelly’s meticulous team previews, including the ones for schools you weren’t even aware even had D-I programs. You’ve even sifted past the survivalist and low rider periodicals at CVS to find copies of those obsolete preseason magazines that go to press far too early to be relevant.

But have you been edified by the predictions of four random guys you sort of know from SDSU Twitter? You have not.

UNTIL NOW.

The Kabeer Thirty staff predictions are here. Before you peruse these, take a look at our stupid predictions for the 2017 season. This should give you an idea of how much credence to give what’s on the other side of the jump. Hint: NOT AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF CREDENCE.

As the bar gets keeps getting raised higher for the San Diego State football program, this exercise gets tougher. Back in 2011 when I started blogging, it was essentially, “Please stay decent and don’t go back to losing 70-7 to New Mexico.” Last August, in the wake of SDSU’s first outright conference title since 1986, it was a little more complicated.

How high? Defining success for the 2016 Aztecs

The first time SDSU made the Poinsettia Bowl, it played Navy. The Aztecs being in a bowl – any bowl – was such a novelty back in 2010 that nearly 50,000 people crammed into a stadium half-filled with San Diego River storm surge.

The shine of the lower-tier bowl game wore off fast. Aztecs fans were nearly outnumbered on their home turf by stone-sober BYU supporters in the 2012 Poinsettia. SDSU faithful who attended each of the Potato Bowl, Hawai’i Bowl and New Orleans Bowl appearances could fit into a Subaru Forester. Aztecs supporters aren’t satisfied with making just any bowl anymore.
