What does your house look like? I have a ranch.

Do you really want to live in Chicago? I guess you can lease it out.

Good point. I'd rather live where my guns are legal and unneeded.

Phil Steele has a more favorable outlook. He has Rice "improved" in every area. He picks us 4th in the West and says we can win 6 games.

I would certainly hope so starting from the rather low bar of 2016.

More optimistic than our most rabid fans.

Well, as I've posted recently, I'm interested in seeing what impact, if any, the new coaches will have with respect to on-field results.

While I was disappointed with last season, that doesn't preclude me from being hopeful for his season, at least until proven otherwise.

I can see a scenario where we win six. Beat UTEP, FIU, Army, UAB, UNT and then one other (probably UTSA in San Antonio). I think we'll know if this team has a chance at any combination of six wins after the first four games.

Agree. Also, the new QB, whoever he is, could also turn out to have a lot of impact.

Borrowing from another sport, it ain't over till it's over. And we haven't even started yet.

Lolz..... how sad is it when the fan base has to be 'optimistic' to see winning 6 games.

Last season was tough with a rather optimistic view of the season relative to the Wile E Coyote cliff plunge of season that actually occurred. But at least there was a thrill of a hint of a possibility last August time frame.

This year, it is really, really, really, really hard for me to gain *any* traction excitement-wise for this year's FB. Maybe something will click and I'll regain that level of interest, but it is like last season flipped the "screw it for awhile" switch for me.

Last year made the trek multiple times for day trips to see games; I don't know if I will see more than one this year.

How exactly do you see us beating Army? Barring a torrential downpour, I would imagine Army will be favored by double digits against us, despite being at home.

The two teams will score points in direct proportion (1:10) to offensive passing yards. Rice 28, Army 6.
