Grade the 2017 Toledo Rockets Football season
Let's not rehash all the ugly details from the bowl game, but in all honesty given the complete season how would you grade the overall outcome of the season?

For me:
Grade A (MAC championship, would have taken bowl win and 25 ranking for A+)

Not to rehash it but to include it I would say:

Grade B+

For me, to obtain an A, I would like to have seen us not get embarrassed by OU and App. We need to figure that style of team. No disrespect to either of them but in order to truly advance the program's image on a national stage we can't take lumps like that.

I went with an A-. Played Miami tough for about 3 quarters, didn't fade away in November, and won the MAC.

Voted A- for almost the exact same reasons.

My grade may have been lower, but the 13 year without a MAC championship really made that achievement a major one at least for me-it is the real reason they play-ultimate goal is to win the conference championship. But perhaps if that MAC champ gap had not been as long (or was a clear expectation at start of season), grade would have been lower reflecting looking for more than just the MAC this year-big bowl win/top 25 ranking. But that would have taken an undefeated season, certainly was not fair expectation for me this year as team still came into season with concerns on D and OL.

The team seem ill prepared for the Ohio game and utterly bewildered by App State. They were, however, ready for Northern and Western when it counted the most.

I would still give them an A. They did everything that the fans wanted them to do. I my opinion the lose at OU came after the big win over NIU no questions asked. The bowl game to me was that they played them last year and another trip to Mobile, really didn't excite them very much. That is no excuse but that is my opinion. I'm sure all of the coaches have watched that game over and over to find out where the trobules are.

B+ to A- for the season, but a F for the bowl game.
