Is ESPN reporting, or opining? I trust Vegas over talking heads opinions @ ESPN.

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

ESPN's matchup predictor according to their FPI. They've changed it now to pretty much say the SMU game is a toss-up (49.9% for SMU), a near toss-up against the Coogs (52.2% for Memphis), and 52.5% in favor of Cindy. It's ESPN, so I trust them just slightly more than I do Mexican tapwater.

I think that is probably closer to reality. We can win them all, but it's far from a given.

Yep...

It's all computer calculated. Not sure why people are jumping up and down over the computer predictions now when they were quoting them earlier.

Guess people don't trust anything that doesn't tell the story they want to hear

Com' on, really! The last game of the year in Memphis and beat the Tigers? Somebody really likes Cincinnati a whole lot. Let us see what they say after playing UCF cause that game at Ohio St. was an awful showing and not even a respectable showing.

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

Picky, Picky! But, that is an astute observation, and absolutely correct!!

In the odds world the underdog loses the majority of times.
