RE: 2018 Football Schedule
Virginia and Auburn are the only teams I'm chalking up as automatic losses. The rest we should be competitive with. If our new coach can fix our defense while getting our offense more consistent, I like our chances against the rest of the field. I don't think talent is our problem as much as consistency.

I plan on going to the first two games.

Depends on if a coaching change happens but I'll do mine based on if Gill returns
ODU W they will start strong and ODU is meh
Army L they've got it together up there but this is assuming their coach stays
Norfolk st W
North Texas W home game
NM L
NMSU L two roads games in NM back to back ugh
Troy L see Army
Idaho State W
Umass L this is a toss up but I'll go with the home team
UVA L but competitive and scares UVA
Auburn L blowout
NMSU W finish strong

5-7

Floor 3-9
Ceiling 7-5

Tons of assumptions in that post, GE. HaHa

I would be content with 5 wins next season. 6 wins would have me tickled. 7 wins? I'd be ecstatic.

Getting five wins in a transition year will be a challenge but we have the weapons on offense.

Depends on the who will be the head coach in 2018. I'm thinking 3-5 wins.

RE: 2018 Football Schedule
On next year's schedule, are Norfolk State and Idaho State the only FCS (I-AA) schools?

That is correct. ISU is from the top tier FCS Big Sky Conference and we all know NSU from the MEAC based on past matchups.

If we still have Gill, 3 wins. ODU, Norfolk State and Idaho State.

He'll coach us out of wins and our defense will still won't stop the run.

I know, I may have some wishful thinking. But our schedule isn't daunting and going .500 in the G5 match ups isn't out of the question to me. 6-6 is where I tag us based on the assumption Gill is gone.

RE: 2018 Football Schedule
That’s still a big assumption, especially as time passes.
6-6 next year would be fantastic.

Beginning in 2021, and moving forward, I have several expectations for it to be considered a good year.....
1) Win at least 8 regular season games
2) Beat your rival
3) Win your bowl game
4) Win your conference/division championship
5) Finish ranked in the Top 25.

Obviously we don’t have access to #2 or 4 yet, and most likely won’t by my start date anyway.

I admire your enthusiasm. If LU was able to have 4-5 wins I would view as an expected win total.

Also, I'm not underestimating UMass. They are improving throughout the year and some of their L's were very close. UMass 2017.

Holy Smokes!!! Liberty can’t underestimate any team! Look at our history! The only “sure” win is gonna be Norfolk St. I’m not even counting Idaho St. as a sure win even though it should be.

I think Gill lost to Norfolk State early in his tenure if I'm not mistaken.

I just realized that not only was Troy playing on championship weekend, so was every other team in the Sun Belt. They were one of the top 2 teams in the SB, however.

RE: 2018 Football Schedule
I was looking into NMSU a little bit today and noticed that their QB is a senior.

His stats:

319-512
3825 yds
26 tds 16 ints

I point this out because if he is gone next year I doubt NMSU is going to be playing at the same level next year. That game could look more favorable than I previously thought. I might look to see what other teams we play will lose their big playmakers next year.

You play NMSU twice? That is odd...

Is Liberty bowl eligible in 2018?
