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

Offensive line does seem unsettled.

Unless UAB scares Florida this year, Texas A&M will be licking its chops to get UAB into College Station for a home game -- maybe even a Homecoming game. Of course, LSU invited UAB to be its Homecoming victim in 2000, and we know how that turned out.

Just need to hope no one decides to get cute the way Houston did against SMU when they returned to football. Houston ran up the score to 95-21. Hopefully Florida doesn't feel the need to be brutal. I think 4 or 5 wins is feasible.

I'll predict right now that anyone who thinks we'll get boat raced out of the stadium like SMU did is in for a surprise.

No chance of that happening. Texas A&M will not view UAB as a threat no matter how good we do this season.

I'm not saying we won't give Florida a good game, but they also don't run the type of game plan that would allow for such a thing to happen. It's almost a certainty that they won't be blowing out any teams by an astronomical amount.

FWIW, the betting line regular season wins over/under for UAB is currently:
Over 2 1/2 @ -150
Under 2 1/2 @ +120

Wow. This seems almost too good to take. 3 wins seems an almost certainty.

Ole Miss and Mississippi State bought out our series with each of them before Clark came here.

As I recall it, MSU bought out the B'ham game after losing to a visiting UAB. Ole Miss wasn't ever going to take that risk. Ole Miss and Bama think alike about playing risky OOC games, especially in state schools.

The question is, "How big of a risk is it to play a team with 40+ seniors who see 2018 as their last chance to shine and with a real chance at a successful season when you have a new coach?". Is it worth the chance? This is a game that Texas A&M fans expect to win and win BIG against a team 1 year removed from non-existence. What if they don't? Judging by their 2018 non-conference season(Northwestern State, Clemson, & OLM), UAB may be their 2nd toughest game as they use the tried-and-true SEC scheduling model - 1 P5, 1 FCS, 2 "lower-level" G5.
