Best football win of the year?
I'm going with UMass. I mean they beat Ga. Southern, App State and BYU. I don't think we come close to beating any of those teams. Your view?

They lost a lot of close games, actually had a half decent chance to beat Tennessee. But I think we have to go with FIU, the only team ODU beat with a winning record.

Well, ODU beat FIU, which routed WKU and handled Marshall, so selective transitive property trumps actual head to head and puts ODU ahead of those schools. Too bad they couldn't beat Middle Tennessee either.

Albany didn't finish with a winning record?

Probably did, but I'm obviously thinking winning record in FBS.

Sorry I just checked. Albany finished 4-7. Wow, things really are bad right now. My guess is we maybe finish 5th in the CAA.

Getting smashed by FAU had me thinking that we were going to get swept by the Florida schools this season, but we pulled out FIU. That one was most satisfying for me personally.

RE: Best football win of the year?
I do think that the UMass win is more impressive than it seemed for most of the year. To me, their record does not reflect the quality of that team. However, the most impressive win to me has to be FIU, on the road, in a must win situation to keep bowl hopes alive. I also think that this is the game where the offense looked its best.

Albany finished 5-7 overall; 2-8 in the CAA, and they didn't even play JMU

FIU was our best win, IMHO.

FIU was the best win, though I think the two games we played the best were WKU and UNT.
