Since Bryant is out, that's all on Ridder's shoulders now.

if ritter goes down, i think we see an inexperienced, but better talented version, of him: evan prater

Prater was the 4th string QB this year- take it for what it’s worth.

#2 just left, and something tells me that #4 would play in front of #3. if they'd have to take some lumps and growing pains, #4 shows more upside than #3. fwiw.

It’s going to be an interesting battle to track when training camp starts. Prater really needs to grow as a passer but he certainly has NFL talent. I hope he steps up into the QB2 slot. I’d like to throw him out there with Ridder in some sets and get really crazy with it.

Our OOC formula is 2 P5, a G5, and an FCS. The P5 are usually beatable ones (recent ones have been GT, BC, UMD, Rutgers, and the like) but we have games with Penn State and Oklahoma in the pipeline.

Every year, once we've wrapped up, and I'm really bored, I start looking at everyone's schedules for the next season. I try to determine, in a perfect world where we all go undefeated OOC, and all those OOC teams are solid, which one of us would have the best resume at the end of the year. Who would benefit the conference most with an undefeated season. i.e. who SHOULD win the AAC in 2021.

Here is my ranking. Tried to also rank opponents in descending order for comparison.

Ranking:
1) Tulsa: Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Arkansas State, UC Davis
2) Cincinnati: Notre Dame, Indiana, Miami (not Miami), Murray State
3) Tulane: Oklahoma, Mississippi, UAB, Morgan State
4) USF: Florida, BYU, NC State, Florida A&M
5) Navy: Notre Dame, Army, Marshall, Air Force
6) UCF: Louisville, Boise, UConn, ?
7) ECU: South Carolina, Marshall, App State, Charleston Southern
8) Memphis: Mississippi State, UTSA, Arkansas State, Nicholls
9) Temple: Duke, Rutgers, UMass, Lafayette
10) SMU: TCU, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Abilene Christian
11) Houston: Texas Tech, Rice, Grambling State, ?

Got it - - I agree with the point above that this is essentially a survey of opinions about the FB teams' 2021 S.O.S.

Surprised to see how weak Memphis' and SMU's schedules are.

The UMass and Lafayette games might be the only two that Temple will be able to win next season. The Owls might be one of the teams that benefit the least from the covid eligibility "4+1" rule.
Memphis has not had a “strong” schedule in a while. That’s a double edge sword.. Memphis’ rise could partially be attributed to that among other things though as a fan I want more exciting games - but then I want to win those games as well. Fortunately AAC has been pretty good to compensate with regular games against Houston navy smu along with crossover UC, UCF games.

That's a constant debate among ECU fans.

We used to consistently schedule the P5, P5, P5, FCS model, which was awesome. Then when all the NC/SC/VA FCS teams came out of the woodwork to join FBS (App, UNCC, Coastal, ODU), we lost our foothold as the only tweener around.

Schedules went P5, P5, G5, FCS for a while (which I'd prefer), but now a lot of future years look like P5, G5, G5, FCS. I find that completely lame, but other fans keep yelling that we need a more Memphis-like schedule until we're decent again.

My only beef with that idea is that we're scheduling out almost 10 years. I'd prefer to think that 10 years from now, we might be in the middle of a decent season and not still turning in 3-9/4-8 seasons. With the new approach, if you ever actually have a stellar season, you get zero respect because your schedule is garbage.

My preference is to always try for the most competitive schedule possible.

I tend to look at how the teams did this year and what their rosters look like next year. I would pick Cincinnati, UCF, and Memphis.

9) Temple: Boston College, Rutgers, Akron, Wagner
10) SMU: TCU, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Abilene Christian
11) Houston: Texas Tech, Rice, Grambling State, ?

Notes:
-Holy crap a CCG rematch!!
-Tulsa over Cindy was a tough call. Both had CFP teams on their slate. Tulsa got the nod due to a) ND getting embarrassed and b) Indiana has to go back to play road MAC games next year, and will struggle
-Tulane over USF by a hair. Had to go with the Oklahoma head to head over Florida
-Temple was really tough to rank. They have two P5 teams, but not strong ones
-This is a pretty good slate for showing our stuff. Surprised how much I dropped ECU(who I thought had a halfway decent schedule) as I kept adding teams

Interested to see everyone else's picks, to hear why mine are stupid, to hear how X team should be higher because they have more cache than Tulsa... Go crazy.

Tulsa misses UCF and ECU

Cincy misses Houston and Memphis

The best outcome would be for one of them to face an undefeated team in the championship game. UCF getting another p5 game and the AAC adjusting the schedule so Tulsa, UCF, and Cincy avoid each other would set up the ideal situation. So trade ECU for Cincy and trade UCF (they miss Houston and Tulsa) for Houston respectfully. Hopefully it goes well enough we are fighting about which of the three undefeated teams get to play for the play off spot.

uc has an awful lot coming back. losing the DC hurts, but, at this point, i trust CLF to pick the right man to step into that job. i'm looking for another big year for the 'cats.
