RE: 2017 Football Schedule
I know we have some serious talent but right now we need to bolster each position as we are not deep. I want to see some scrimmages before I get crazy with predictions.

Well, if I can't make it to the opening game, looks like I'll definitely be able to make it to the game at Ball State. 2017 can't get here soon enough.

RE: 2017 Football Schedule
"Not deep" means that our "scout team" probably will not have the speed, size or talent to adequately prepare our starters to play the other team's starters right away. We will have to adjust during the opening halves of our early games like we did when opening against Michigan State with only 60 or so scholarship players under Callaway. Alabama A&M may be the best answer for that problem.

The talent level will be night and day from that team. When we suit it up in 17 we will be close.

The 2017 Blazers will have at or near 85 scholarship players (compared to Callaway's 60+) ready for the field against Alabama A&M. BUT, except for JUCO transfers brought in this coming December, the rest of our players will not have played a down against another team's starters in two seasons. How well our own scout team will be able to prep them for those early schedule games remains to be seen.

Wonder how long a drive it is to Ball State?

About 8 hours mostly straight up I-65, except for the last 60 miles or so.

Eight hours and almost all interstate. I-65 to Indianapolis, I-465 east then north around the city to I-69 toward Ft Wayne. Muncie is about 5 miles east from the I-69 exit for Muncie. Ball State University (named for the glass canning jar company family) is nearly in the center of Muncie.
