There's still 11 more weeks of regular season football. Any given saturday. This is a thanksgiving week discussion really.

Well, this whole thread is basically early speculation about the next 11 weeks and most folks predictions here are including the playoff results

RE: 2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
We just proved how you could beat NDSU in the playoffs, even at home. However, it requires a physical team with damn near perfect offensive and defensive production. I think SDSU is the only team out there other than us that could fit that bill. Only time will tell.

NDSU really needs to play a playoff game away from Fargo/Frisco for a change. They have not had a true road playoff game since losing to EWU in the 2010 semifinals in OT.

man..would love to see some marquee match ups at BFS this fall... yes - this thread is all about getting way ahead of ourselves :)

SHSU - just not marquee despite UR win.... EWU / NDSU / SDSU / Montana (my sleeper) would be

It's late, but after seeing us *beat* ECU, I agree that we're likely to run the table and go 15-0. We beat NDSU, solidly, in their house. I like our chances better in Frisco.

RE: 2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
Yeah, I'm looking at the schedule again and while I'm concerned that the injury bug will bite us at some point. It is really hard for me to see a loss on the schedule or in any playoff scenario after the huuur-ting we put on ECTC. I'm thinking 15-0 might be a good bet. I know I said 11-3, and I'll stick to that for purposes of this exercise, but I see 15-0 on the horizon. If 15-0 happens, man, what a fun ride it'll be!

No losses this year, Houston gone in Feb...points records broken.

Next coach walks into a situation where anything but winning is not good enough and CAA4LYF after 3 NCs.

This team is a good G5 playing fcs teams every week.

Don't think the odds are anywhere near 75% that the NC will be JMU vs NDSU. Again never in playoff history have 2 teams that were in the semis one season played in the NC the next season. Yeah NDSU could be on the opposite same side of the bracket as JMU. They could also easily drop a game or 2 and be on the same side.

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.

No necessarily. If they lose only 1 @ SDSU or @ EWU, SDSU or EWU with only 1 loss could end up the #2 seed. And its possible NDSU could drop 2 games. They have (going by the AGS pre season poll):
@ #3 SDSU, @ #4 EWU*, @ #10 YSU, @ #18 ILSU, #20 WIU, #22 UNI).
Remember last season SDSU beat them during the regular season, and EWU lost in Fargo in OT..Lot of football to be played.

Nice win. All the pre season hype about EWU being a top 4-5 team. I saw some speculation that EWU could possibly upset TX Tech, since TX Tech wasn't suppose to be that good this season, and had a good chance vs NDSU at home. But after
-TX Tech 56, EWU 10,
-NDSU 40, EWU 13
Looking like EWU might not be nearly as good as they were predicted to be. And in the next 2 weeks they have to fly across the country to play Fordham, and then are @ Montana..

2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
It's possible that ewu could start 0-4 and be unranked by that point. Sometimes you schedule a little too hard for your own good.

RE: 2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
I agree. 2 big things I took from the game was EWU can't stop the run and Gubrud isn't in sync with his receivers. Lots of bad looking plays whether receivers in wrong place or just bad throws, not sure. Unfortunately this win might not look as good come playoff selection time.
