i'll go with 15-0. if you know me, that's saying a lot as i'm usually on the conservative side of these predictions. sure, i could see 9-2 or even 8-3. but i think we're better than every team we play. biggest keys are Schor staying healthy and the OL playing well together. if those two things happen, i don't see how we lose.

RE: 2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
Now that we've seen them play against an FBS school (granted, it didn't tell us THAT much), anyone want to change their answer?

I've thought all along undefeated, and that certainly hasn't changed. I think after last week, the tougher prediction will be average PF vs PA. I'm thinking an average of 45+ PF and about 10 PA. The PA will really depend on how long we're playing our 2nd and 3rd string defense. Right now Massey is giving us an average of about 40 PF and 14 PA in their predictions (https://www.masseyratings.com/team.php?t...s=295489). With all but a few of these games, Houston could pretty much pick whatever score he wants.

We could also do predictions on number of shutouts.

I'd say baring some unforeseen injuries or freak events (knock on wood), we should be undefeated regular season. This team and our coaches are just that good, though we almost slipped up against UNH last season (first game at UNH). For sure every team will be gunning for us, and we should expect new/trick plays reserved just for our game. Houston seems good at not overlooking anyone and keeping the team focused and motivated though.

The only team I see right now as a potential roadblock to another NC is NDSU. That game was heavily contested. I think they are very deserving of their #2 ranking, and are curently higher in the Sagarin ranking than we are. If anyone spoils the party, it will most likely be the Bison.

Prediction is 15-0 with about 95% confidence.

LOL, no worries, not trying to compete for a prize. My prediction would have been the same previously, but with a lower confidence than after watching ECU get dismantled. Expected us to win that one, but not quite so decisively.

Also, FWIW and as stated previously, I think odds are close to 75% Frisco will be JMU vs the Bison. Still a bit concerned they will buy up the lions share of the seats this year. I don't see the committee putting us on the same side of the bracket with them.

Semifinal appearance means a loss or I wouldn't have said that. I would've said champion or runner-up if we progressed further, at minimum.

I will now change my answer to 10-1 but still minimum semifinal appearance. It really depends on if we face NDSU before Frisco. That game is a toss-up, even at home.
I thought ECU could've been one of the losses, so obviously 9-2 isn't in the cards anymore. I think we could get tripped up in one CAA game. If we make it past UR, obviously, undefeated regular season.

1 or 2. Shutouts are hard because any team can usually get within FG range at least once and once we have our back ups in the game, they inevitably give up more trash yardage and scores.

NDSU will lose a minimum of one game this regular season. Their conference is too strong. They'd probably need to drop at least 2 though to not be a top 2 seed.
