Louisville (7-6)

We best sweep those home games .

...and so the ground work is laid... for others to use the crappy schedule to excuse bad attendance.

Two FCS schools and three teams that played in the MAC last season. Yipppeeee! We will have to go 7-5 to be Bowl eligible. If we don't go 9-3 with this schedule we should be ashamed.

I'm thinking more about 10-2 as a bare minimum goal here...

C'mon. 10-2? Considering everyone we lost from last year? And the away schedule? I think that's way too high. Without taking the in-conference schedule sequence into account I'd say 8-4 should be the goal. VT and UL are probably Ls, we never play well at UConn, that Toledo game has trap written all over it. Temple? Who knows. But people are overlooking Rutgers I think - sure it's at home, but they're a preseason favorite to win the league along with UL. That won't be easy.

We are playing 2 FCS clubs and Toledo, Miami OH, Temple. Replacing a starting backfield or not, anything less than 8 wins is a big disappointment.

CD11, it's not like we have WVU anymore. Maybe 10-2 won't happen, but it's certainly doable.

Maybe I shouldn't have thrown the "bare minimum" phrase in front of it, but I won't be happy if we lose to Pitt with a new coach (tuneup or not), Rutgers at home, UConn (who seldom ever finds a competent QB), or especially any MAC team. There would be no excuse for any of those occurrences.

Yeah, we're sure to be underdogs to VT and UL, but I don't think it's unreasonable to expect wins otherwise.

If there was any season we needed some extra fluff with more home games it would be this one. After next year CBJ should have started a steady flow of recruits so we're not rebuilding. I'd say 8-4 should be the judgement line.

I think somewhere between 7-5 and 9-3 is realistic given the holes that need to be filled. Butch's first season was killed due a non-conference schedule that included Oklahoma, Fresno, and NC State.

In college football you only need difficult schedule if you believe you are going to compete for a national championship, UC isn't this so it doesn't matter what the computer numbers say. This isn't college basketball where you need a good RPI.

Any word on PBS games this year? I enjoyed the two last year.

Unfortunately, not many good targets at all (Miami? Pittsburgh?) for PBS games in 2012.

Every game will be at Nippert this year, none at PBS.

The games at PBS were not a success financially due in art to sponsorships etc. Nippert is now the focus for the future and some upgrading should take place in about two years.

Small upgrades or big upgrades?
