2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
10-1 or 9-2, all depending on if we beat ECU. I don't see us going undefeated. We'll have an unlucky game along the way.

Playoffs: anything short of a semifinal appearance is disappointing.

RE: 2017 Dukes Official Season Record Predictions
As I listed on the ‘2017 FB Roster Notes’ thread, for the 1st 2 games only have 3 starters back who started most of last season. Schor, Stinnie, and Bolden. Good news is that 2 of them are pre season All Americans. Do have others with starting experience at WR (Hyman 4 games in 2015, might have started last year if not injured during 1st half of season, Miller for the last 2 playoff games, Eldridge 2 games for UVA) and at RB (Johnson in 2015 (2nd team All CAA)), and Marshall for GA Tech the last 2 seasons). Bottom line is initially we’re not going to see the same great offense we saw last year. Now once JMU gets the suspended pre season All American TE and suspended All CAA WR back, and that OL with 3 new starters has had time to gel, Oct perhaps, then maybe so.

The defense on the other hand with the 9 starters back + 3 new P5 transfers (at least one of whom is starting) should be great right off the bat.

I expect the opposite of last year- instead of the offense starting out great, and the defense taking 8 ½-9 games before that flip got switched and they started dominating, it will be vice versa. But hopefully won’t take the offense as long.

10-1/14-1, win another NC. Think the loss most likely will either be @ ECU or @ UD (who has a bye the week prior- think they will be a playoff team). Obviously if Schor goes down all bets are off.

Because I don't want to jinx them I'll say 10-1. But if this team is really better than last year's then we are in for a treat.

9-2 with a deep run in the playoffs. That regular season record should be good enough for 2 home playoff games then a really tough road game in the semifinals.

Repeating as national champs is not probable as you need a little in-game luck and need to stay away from key injuries. Can it happen? Sure. Will I be rooting for it to happen? Of course. But I remember 2005 all too well. A more talented team than the 2004 national champions ended up 7-4

We're not going 7-4. You can take that to the bank. What a travesty of a season that would be.

A 3 loss team isn't good enough to win a championship. We'll have to do better than that.

17-0. Following the FCS championship the Dukes are so awesome that a play-off is scheduled with the FBS championship winner. Dukes win handily, of course. Following the Super Bowl another play-off is scheduled between the Dukes and the SB winner. Slightly more difficult, but the Dukes pull away in the 4th to win by multiple scores.
