RE: Realistic Win/Loss record
I'll give a prediction later after I watch some camp but from what I have seen if you put a gun to me I'll agree with an over - under of four and put some cash on the over.

Probably about right my over - under 4.5

The only thing that bothers me is that the old saying - you never know what you got until U see them in a game. We may have a few practice only players and will have a few holes that even our very good coaches do not know about say a line position

If we beat ball state we start the season 4-0 and win 7 games in the regular season.

Fanatics have a hard time making realistic predictions. I honestly believe we are going to win every game until we don't.

That said, we may not win them all, but I do expect a bowl game.

If we go a bowl game the first year back from our shutdown, when does the hollywood movie get made? That's a perfect, improbable feel-good story.

I don't ike to make predictions about a whole season in July. I can understand everyone having expectations low but some things to keep in mind

-This team will be physically bigger across the both fronts than any other UAB team.

-This isn't a group of freshman walk ons. There are a lot of guys that have played a lot of football at the JC level and have excelled. Probably 2/3 of the staters and a lot of the back ups will have played JC ball. Some are transfers from other FBS programs.

-Most of the incoming freshmen had multiple offers before picking us.

-They haven't seen live fire as a group but they've bought into the system and they've had up to 18 months to understand what is expected. Because so many have played in tough JC leagues you'll see leadership come very quickly

-They have a HUGE chip on their shoulders.

Coach Clark is an excellent coach, no one disputes that. I believe you give Coach Clark 14 months to recruit, train and game scheme, you are going to get a very confident and prepared team.
I will be very disappointed if this team isnt a salty bunch with a lot to prove.
My hope 4-7 win. But, like an earlier post stated , we win when we run out of the tunnel..

As stated above, the schedule sets up favorably for us to get momentum. In the Callaway years, 2 buy games were mandated, and we played no FCS teams.

The OOC schedule was set up masterfully this year. For now, we need to stick to 1 P5 game, 1 FCS game, and 2 G5 games (with easier opponents scheduled for the next few years).

For 2018, we have @Coastal Carolina, Tulane, and @Texas A&M on the schedule. Throw an FCS opponent in and we're well positioned to be bowling at least in Year 2 of #thereturn.

Probably with a new coach. Wouldn't surprise me if Texas A&M buys this one out...
