Now that we are fairly certain that the CBA business is all but over, we can turn our attention to the upcoming season. I don't know if many of you have really taken a serious look at the upcoming schedule, but it's pretty rough. I'm a self-admitted homer, so, my predictions might be a little higher than they realistically should be, but hey, I'm not getting paid for this nor am I losing any money if I'm wrong. It's all in fun and I thought it would be cool to see what all you "experts" out there in Cat Scratch Reader Land think about our chances in each game. I know its waaaaay too early for game-by-game predictions, but what the hell, right?
Okay, the rules:
You must state the game, give your prediction (win-loss) and the reason why. The reason doesn't have to be long, but just a few short words of why you think the Panthers will win or lose that particular game.
I'll make my predictions in the comments section to prevent influencing anyone else's predictions.
