Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Donovan McNabb will be comeback player of the year in 2007.

Outcome:Pending
#2:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 12/30/2006  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:SI says in 2007, the Steelers will choose offensive line coach Russ Grimm to succeed Bill Cowher.
Prediction Description:Spurned for the job, Ken Whisenhunt, the Steelers' brainy offensive coordinator, will get another head coaching gig and craft a "Beat Pittsburgh" game plan that will make his former bosses pay.
Outcome:Pending
#3:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 12/30/2006  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006

#4:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 12/30/2006  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:SI says that in 2007, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will buy the 49ers.
Prediction Description:Having failed to land a new stadium in Santa Clara, Niners owner John York will come crawling back to San Francisco, whose officials are still upset over the Niners' November announcement that they no longer want to build a stadium in their city, torpedoing its 2016 Olympic bid. When Ellison makes an offer for the team, the franchise's true power broker, York's wife, Denise, will say yes.
Outcome:Pending
#5:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:SI says Randy Moss will demand a trade in 2007, but no one will want him.

#6:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Marshawn Lynch of the Cal-Berkeley Bears will be Rookie of the Year in the NFL in 2007-2008 season.
Outcome:Pending
#7:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera will succeed Dennis Green as Cardinals coach in 2007.
Prediction Description:This prediction was made before Dennis Green was fired on January 1st 2007. So they implicitly got the firing part right.
Outcome:Pending
#8:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:The Red Sox will sign Roger Clemens in 2007.
Prediction Description:Some side-note fodder... SI also says: "The contract will pay Clemens $12 million to join a six-man rotation anchored by Daisuke Matsuzaka, and he'll sign it on June 1, just before a home game against the Yankees. Boston will also agree to retire the Rocket's number 21 at the end of the season. Clemens will then announce (again) that he's retiring. "
Outcome:Pending
#9:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Frank Thomas, Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez and Alex Rodriguez will hit their 500th home runs in 2007.

Outcome:Pending
#10:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Tom Glavine will win his 300th game in late August 2007.
Prediction Description:That will prompt the media to ask whether Glavine is the last of the 300-game winners, just as they did when Clemens won his 300th in 2003 and when Greg Maddux won his 300th in '04, and as they will again in '08 when Randy Johnson wins his 300th (with the Diamondbacks).
Outcome:Pending
#11:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Barry Bonds will pass Hank Aaron as the alltime home run leader with number 756 on Sept. 7, 2007, in San Francisco against the Dodgers.
Prediction Description:SI says "After hitting number 755 in Washington on Sept. 1, Bonds will sit out four consecutive road games because of what the Giants call "tightness in his hamstring," thus avoiding the embarrassment of being booed upon breaking the record. The Giants, mired in last place, will hold a 20-minute ceremony immediately after his milestone homer, but neither Aaron nor commissioner Bud Selig will appear. "
Outcome:Pending
#12:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Ryan Howard will blast 66 home runs, with Albert Pujols right behind at 62 in 2007.
Prediction Description:After a reprise of the Great Home Run Race of 1998 -- only this time it's for real (or so we like to think) -- Howard will be generally, if unofficially, treated as the new Home Run King.
Outcome:Pending
#13:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:The Cubs will win the National League Central in 2007!
Prediction Description:Is this prediction real? SI goes on to say "But just before the first pitch of the Division Series, 18-game winner Mark Prior burns three fingers on his pitching hand when he moves a space heater in the Chicago dugout. The Dodgers sweep the series."
Outcome:Pending
#14:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:The Timberwolves will bite the bullet and trade Kevin Garnett in 2007.
Prediction Description:Si goes on to say "For Ben Gordon, Tyrus Thomas and the Knicks' lottery pick (acquired in the Eddy Curry deal), the Bulls will land Garnett in a move that revitalizes both franchises. "
Outcome:Pending
#15:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:In 2007, Dwyane Wade will edge out LeBron James in one of the closest NBA MVP races ever.
Prediction Description:SI also says that "Wade will have to carry the load until Shaquille O'Neal rounds into shape, and Flash will almost single-handedly keep the Heat in the upper echelon of the Leastern Conference. "
Outcome:Pending
#16:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:The Jazz will finish among the top five in the Western Conference in 2007.

Outcome:Pending
#17:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Greg Oden will stay in college in 2007 and return for his sophomore year at Ohio State.
Prediction Description:SI also says "In a stunning move, the Ohio State center will announce that he's returning for his sophomore season despite the near certainty that he'd be the No. 1 pick in the June NBA draft. After Oden's announcement, co-freshmen of the year Kevin Durant (Texas) and Chase Budinger (Arizona) will shoot to the top of the draft board in the battle to be chosen first. "
Outcome:Pending
#18:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Roy Williams will return to the national championship game with North Carolina in 2007.
Prediction Description:SI also says the opponent will be Kansas.. "The North Carolina coach will get choked up before the final as he talks about Kansas, his former employer and the Tar Heels' title opponent in Atlanta. Unmoved, the Jayhawks will take down Ol' Roy's team in a fast-paced thriller, riding the sterling performance of Most Outstanding Player Julian Wright. "
Outcome:Pending
#19:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Mike Montgomery will be back on campus to coach Oregon's basketball team in 2007.
Prediction Description:SI says "Lured by the Nike dollars of primary Oregon donor Phil Knight, the former Stanford and Golden State Warriors honcho -- the game's most-sought-after unemployed coach -- will replace Ernie Kent in Eugene. "
Outcome:Pending
#20:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis will ponder the Giants' job in 2007.
Prediction Description:SI also says "Although his contract doesn't expire until 2015, Weis will be approached after New York fires Tom Coughlin. That will force the Irish to sweeten Weis's already sweet deal and get him to stay. "
Outcome:Pending
#21:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:The NCAA will tweak Rule 3-2-5 for college football 2007 - the rule that calls for the clock to start when the ball is kicked off.
Prediction Description:SI also says "That's after Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema abused the new provision, which calls for the clock to start when the ball is kicked off rather than when the receiving team touches it. With 23 seconds left in the first half and the Badgers leading Penn State 10-3 on Nov. 4, Bielema twice had his players blatantly go offside on the kickoff, which burned all but four seconds off the clock -- a smart exploitation of a bad rule. "
Outcome:Pending
#22:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Ohio State will beat Florida 31-20 in the BCS title game in 2007 (college football season 2006-2007).
Prediction Description:SI also says "But a breakout performance by Gators freshman wideout Percy Harvin will put him on the Heisman short list along with running backs Darren McFadden of Arkansas and Steve Slaton of West Virginia. "
Outcome:Pending
#23:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Miami will win the ACC in 2007.
Prediction Description:SI says "New coach Randy Shannon, a linebacker on the Hurricanes' 1987 national championship team, will bring much-needed discipline to the program, making sure that despite their recent struggles, the Hurricanes still get their share of recruits from talent-rich South Florida. "
Outcome:Pending
#24:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will announce that the 2007 season will be his last.
Prediction Description:SI says "Disheartened by the turnover in his staff, especially the resignation of his son Jeff as offensive coordinator, Bowden will retire at 77. But Penn State coach Joe Paterno, three years older than Bowden, will continue to ignore suggestions that he step down."
Outcome:Pending
#25:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:Lorena Ochoa will win more times on the LPGA tour than Tiger Woods does on the PGA Tour in 2007.

Date Made:12/19/2006
Prediction:The U.S. will win the Davis Cup in 2007.
Prediction Description:SI says "For all the Chicken Littles lamenting the state of American tennis, the U.S. has two of the world's top six players (James Blake and Andy Roddick), plus wonder twins Bob and Mike Bryan, the top-ranked doubles team. Short of Rafael Nadal's assuming Swiss citizenship, what's to prevent the U.S. from claiming the Cup for the first time since 1995?"
Outcome:Pending
#29:   Entered by lhazlette (36) on 1/1/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:12/19/2006
