So you're going undefeated in conference play huh?

Math is hard, huh?

1. Alabama A&M
2. @Ball St.
3. Coastal Carolina

I we can start 2-1 or 3-0 then I think it gets a lot easier to get to 4 or 5 wins. The big thing is just weathering the storm and keeping the positive moment moving forward over the next couple of years because we are finally staring a bright future for the program.

Having that opening game vs Alabama A&M on Stadium is ideal. I'll plan on taping it and watching after the UTEP game that day. Any idea how season ticket sales are going at UAB? I would imagine a good crowd for the opener, a win and momentum going into the rest of the season, regardless of the overall record.

I'm really not sure how season ticket sales are going. it's not something I've really kept up with. We had a good turn out for the spring game, so hopefully that's a positive sign. Since Legion Field is so large, a lot of people in the past have just bought tickets on game day.

I do expect we'll have a great crowd for the Alabama A&M game. Between the hype locally for our first game back and the big crowd that A&M will bring, I expect a great atmosphere.

They haven't release specific season ticket numbers, but did say around the spring game in April that they had already sold a record number. If true that would be north of the 22,500 season tickets sold during our 1-AA to 1-AA transition (when there was an actual attendance requirement to move up to the top level.

That's not how O/U works.

If the O/U is 7.5 and you win 8, that's hitting the over.

So I rounded to 9. Close enough.

But if we go undefeated in conference play, we've already hit the over...

I think we beat Western, so you can still believe you're going to be the one to give us a conference loss and your Monarchs can finally get off the mat against us.

That's great! Thanks for sharing that.

RE: 2017 Regular Season Wins O/U
ODU is interesting. They are really loaded but, with a huge question mark at QB. I cant be as high on them as most analyst are until I have some comfort in their QB play. If they can get league average play at QB, the final game of the year could certainly be for the East title. Really talented on offense (outside of QB) and they return almost everything in the secondary and DL (LB is a question mark, but only play 2 at a time, typically). Wilder also has won all the close games in the past; we either win or get blown out.

Albany, Charlotte, Rice should be fairly easy wins. NC and VT are losses.

They have to win 4 out of these to hit the over:

@UMass---probably a slight favorite
home to FAU-----really should be a win
@Marshall-----who knows with this team
home to WKY------ a winnable game, but Western Kentucky would be the favorite at this point
@North Texas-----really should be a win
@FIU-------probably wont sweep the road conference games, but this should be a win
@MTSU---- Assume a loss

Average QB play puts the team 8-4 at worst, IMO. But, I have no faith in the QB just yet.
