We were never favored to win every game, we were favored to win each game.

You aint right. But you aint wrong either...

Watching UCF and how Cincy is beating whopping them UCF isn’t good enough to play Memphis this year. Looking forward to the Cincy game.

Announcers never even mentioned Memphis during their discussion of best teams in the American during the second half. A holes. Great win by Cincy. UCF isn’t Memphis good. Should be a good game at the end of the season against Cincy.

Yep, I noticed that too.

Yep, I noticed that too.

If you had been there, you would have agreed. That win did not feel like domination. It felt like luck. I know Gainwell did "X", and White did "Y", and all that, but the FEELING at the game was ... well.... it was not confident. It was, "I'm sure glad we got that pic-6 and that onside kick out of nowhere, and that 2-point conversion, else, this could have been a nail-biter." Against a team that is now 2-3. And lost to Iowa St. 72-20. Seventy-two to TWENTY...

So many missed tackles... so many...

Hey, I'm super glad we won. Especially since we drove all the way down there to see it in person, but I gotta say, that performance by the defense was a BIT lackluster, and my theory is, it was because of the crowd. I read somewhere on their boards or something that we were the 3rd biggest opponent they've had in their stadium, like, as a home game, and there was NOBODY there. They MIGHT have had 2000-3000 fans their. We probably had 1000.

So could you imaging going from Ole Miss (44,000), Southern (35,000?), South Alabama (20,000?), Navy (40,000 minimum, I don't give a crap what the paper says), to playing in front of about 5,000 people? I'm mean, I'll grant you, the people who live there have the option of not going because it was sooooo hot, but damn, people? Show up for your TEAM. That was embarrassing.

Anyway, point being, there was NO ENERGY in that stadium. I thought we Memphis fans easily matched the ULM fans in overall energy, and we put their student section to shame.

One thing I didn't like to see was some of our fans yelling at the defense while they were on the sidelines in chairs in a meeting, shouting at them over a little 3 foot high wall about 15 feet away from them. Very inappropriate.

RE: We are no longer favored to win every game.
I was about to disagree with you... but the more I read, the less I did.

While I was never in the thought of we were "lucky" or "escaped", we did exactly what we needed to do to win, when we needed to do it. With that said, I do think the team was flat and played down to their opponent.

That can't be a trend. I don't believe Temple is that good, but if we don't jump on them early and they hang around, they will be a tough out. The same goes with every team that we play here on out. I hope our coaches get through to the players that we have to bring the A game regardless of crowd, opponent, or any other factor.

The thing is we are 5-0. We didn't win those 5 games in one week. We played one game a week. We will not be winning the next 7 games this Saturday. We can only win 1. GTG

And all this time, I thought we were looking for one of those NBA jam hotspots where we score a touchdown from a specific spot on the field and suddenly win all 7 games...
