Its a shame you dont understand what box scores are. They can be quite useful when discussing games because they tell you all about what happened during a game, but only if you prefer to use facts. The only chance you usually ever have of being correct is when unpredictable things occur like special teams mistakes, injuries, fumbles and bad ref calls. When wacky stuff like that doesnt go down, your 13-16 predictions turn into 25-4, which is embarrassinly bad.
Discussing a game solely on box scores< discussing a game you actually watched.
As a rule I am usually a play or 2 away in games I am wrong about. Since you only discuss box scores you can't see it. For instance the UT UGA game this past year. The box score says UGA won and if you didn't watch the game you can pretend it was never in doubt but reality is the game was UTs to lose. Another example would be UT Vandy last year, the box score will not tell you that a replay official made up a 1 time use rule on the fly on a 4th down stop that was unreviewable and he reviewed and overruled a spot on the field.
Has Phil Steele or athlon came out yet? I can't wait to see you regurgitate their opinions instead of actually discussing football. Its like a security blanket for you. No one can see that you never played the game outside of video games or call you out for not knowing
about the game if you never actually discuss the games. I wouldn't bother to visit and post on message boards if the sum total of what I could add was to repeat others opinions or box scores.
