After all the defections and additions were over UAB then dropped football which further screwed up the league schedule. And then they added it back.

Sure. I get that it's all UAB's fault and I agree.

But you don't need two stable years, you need one stable year to put a plan in place.

There isn't any plan they're going to do next year that they couldn't have started this year.

But if they do have a better rotation set-up that will kick in after we balance out all our return games this season, then that'd be great. Otherwise, the already too-long periods between conference teams playing one another are going to be even stupidly longer.

I assume they are trying to keep it somewhat equitable.

If UTEP plays at MT in '17 ostensibly it's only right that MT have to play in UTEP in '18. But when we get through this year there is no reason for the schedule not to change in '19.

Ok, so everyone picked their team over David Bailiff's Rice teams. I get it. But ODU barely beat Rice at home last year, and we have a completely new coaching staff. What did ODU change in the off-season to think you have a 75% of winning in Houston over Mike Bloomgren's first team?

Sept 1 - Jackson St
Sept 8 - UL Monroe
Sept 15 - @ Appalachian St
Sept 22 - Rice
Sept 29 - @ Auburn
Oct 6 - BYE
Oct 13 - @ North Texas
Oct 20 - UTSA
Oct 27 - @ Charlotte
Nov 3 - Marshall
Nov 10 - @ UAB
Nov 17 - La Tech
Nov 24 - @ UTEP

We got lucky not having to face FIU or FAU this year. Marshall and Tech are both home games.

I like it for the aspect of we've got 2 lower reputable teams to open the season (and both at home) before we go on the road for what should be our first tough challenge which hopefully gives us time to get the kinks worked out before we play any CUSA games. As well, we've got our bye week (in week 6) after the Auburn game so that gives us a chance to rest up and heal just before the half way point when we have just CUSA games remaining. Lastly, we do not play on the road on consecutive Saturdays. Granted these don't guarantee winning results but it sure beats the heck out of going to UTEP and Charlotte on back to back Saturdays.

Our QB is no longer a 17 year old freshman. He's 18 now. Y'all better look out.

Seriously, I know nothing. Don't put too much thought into January predictions.

That is an inviting schedule. The west had better hope either MU or Tech can beat you guys at home otherwise it could be a walk for you.

IMHO UNT, UAB, LT should be the top picks. May not work out that way, seldom do things go exactly as one would expect.

Charlotte will beat Fordham. We might sneak up on 1-2 others.
Best case 3-9.
Worst case 1-11 will eleven straight losses.

Worst worst case: we beat Fordham, steal one from UMass, score a touchdown to beat ODU 7-6, and then catch a couple of folks sleeping on us (WKU, FIU??), and go 5-7 causing our new AD to say,
“I know I missed the first five years of this guys tenure, but this Brad Lambert guy seems like a real go getter. He’s a big up and comer. Better lock him up now before Wake Forest comes sniffin’ around”.

So please fellow CUSA’s please do the Niners a favor and don’t get lax after being up 17-0 most of the game, or wait for us to miss an extra point. Take care a business and don’t let up.

I don't see Florida Atlantic having too much trouble at home, but our away games will definitely determine our positioning in the conference next year.
