Total wins 2017 season

Post by ZooMass84 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 11:27 am

Who wants to guess at the total wins for this year? I'm going to be very optimistic and say 5. Hawaii, Coastal Carolina, Old Dominion, Ohio, and Maine.

^ I am with you on 5. I’d love more. I won’t be disappointed with 4, but fewer than 4 will be troubling.

I think the number of blowouts decreases this year. I think there will only be two shitshows.

Three - Coastal Carolina, Maine, and one more. I hope I'm wrong.

Will low ball it with 3 wins, since they have not shown me the team knows how to win. Think more is possible. Beating Hawaii would certainly help start changing this perception.

When I was in Vegas visiting our son a couple of weeks ago he said the Vegas line for us was 2 1/2 wins. Naturally he took them up on that. I think that we have a shot at 5 wins baring no major injuries. Naturally I hope we can pull an upset along the way and get 6 wins and a bowl bid.

Interesting - they only predict one undefeated team (Ohio State) and only one other team with an undefeated conference record (Florida St).

6. Big jump, but I think they can make it happen. O looks good, and hopefully with the new D-coordinator they can make some strides on that end too. Hopefully they fixed the kicking game as well.

The eternal optimist in me goes back to this game https://www.sbnation.com/college-footba ... core-recap as this not being a completely lost cause. The Jags took them to wire and had the ball inside the ten on their final drive. I only know of this game because of a local player on the Jags squad.

Beat Hawaii - corner turned - 5 wins
