2018 Projections: Who regresses?
Everyone is optimistic before the season starts. All teams have made changes. Hope springs eternal for all fan bases. But for every game someone wins, someone else has to lose. Not your guys, of course. What CUSA foes do you see going backwards this year?

If all the other teams improve by an average of one game each will WKU go winless? If not, someone else needs to also regress.

Marshall and FAU both regress with new QBs. Might be just a single game worse.

WKU, UTSA, FIU, and maybe LA Tech. Although I suspect FIU will have a worse record then last season, I do think they will be a better team.

I see no reason for our team to regress this year.

I'll explain my thinking in a few days when I get to my schedule breakdown of LA Tech. Thanks for being polite about our differences. Some posters are not so civil. 04-cheers

Agreed. Tech had one of the least experienced teams going into the year with a new starter behind center, suffered a plethora of injuries on both sides of the ball, and was still less than a TD away from a 10-2 regular season. With the experience garnered due to injuries with the underclassmen, a healthy inclusion of upperclassmen in the two-deep, and the first QB since Holtz and Rattay came to get a second offseason with them I fully expect an 8-4 or better season. Regressing from 7-6, even with the USM, FAU, and UNT games on the road seems hard to imagine.

We will be anywhere from 6 to 8 wins...probably a little worse that last year, but with not as many turnovers

I am not seeing much optimism from WKU fans this off season...Reading posts on here everyone else is going undefeated so you are right.....North Texas will regress, mark it down...

I’m curious. What makes you think we’ll regress other than the fact that we won 9 games last season?

You won a lot of close games last season, that will be hard to repeat.....Plus Turnover usually catch up to you if you have a season where you really benefitted from several turnovers from the other team.....I see at least 6 losses on your schedule and your QB is like 5-10 165, one hit he's out for season...

I think we regress in terms of offensive play, but I do not think it is going to cost us in our record. I expect the same record, 11-3 (but, this time, with a loss to Marshall in conference)

I think we may actually be better at QB this season.

Just a couple bits I want to clear up. Last year UNT ranked 118th in TO margin, only ahead of MTSU & Rice in C-USA. We went from +1 in 2016 to -11 in 2017. So I would think that we move that closer to +1 than -11 this season. Our QB is up to 5-11 180 pounds. Plus there is a video floating around twitter of him bench pressing 315 pounds, which I think is pretty insane given his size. He also took a hell of a blow from Marcus Davenport last season (Took it with 10 seconds left in the game and threw the winning TD pass against UTSA). I don’t think he can take a ton of hits like that, but a few should be okay. I agree we did win a lot of close games, but our TO margin was really bad, which let teams back in the game. Plus we gave up 2 KO TDs to ODU, which is an extreme abnormality. We’ll see. I have us winning anywhere from 7-10 games this season depending on the defense.

I dunno, our QB has held us back since he took the helm, you may be right or we might actually for a running attack offense that is effective since we have a newbie QB. It is hard to tell really. FIU regresses due to losing a good QB. USM, not sure, you guys lost a few key pieces as well. I think it will all depend on team toughness on who wins it all, not really who has the prettiest pieces on the field. Defense will matter alot this year.
