2010

You guys were close to a 7-5 season last year.  What do you think your year will be like this year and why?

Thanks,

If our D was just slightly better, we may have beaten MTSU, Wyoming, and ULM.  We easily could have won 8 or 9 games.  Hopefully the D improves enough to flip those close Ls to Ws and we'll be right back in contention for the Belt title.  The offense will be fine next year with Van Camp and Morris leading the way.

Do you return a lot of guys?  Any reason to think your D will improve?

We will probably go: 7-5 (6-2)
@ UAB - W
@ Michigan State - L
@ ULM - W
@ Texas -L
@ USF - L
Troy -L
@ WKU -W
ULL - W
@ MTSU - L
N. Texas - W
@ Ark. State - W
FIU- W

- We have a different D coordinator in 2010
- Several key defensive players are returning
- We have several redshirted D players coming off the bench to play in 2010 (I.E. Keith Reaser)
- We played a lot of young inexperienced players on D this past season - they will be slightly more experienced in 2010.

O.k. thanks for the info.  I will be doing a small writeup on the CFN Sun Belt board (Scout.com: Sun Belt Message Board).  Won't be much.  just me trying to keep the word out on the conference in a small way. It should be up soon.

It's likely that the UAB game will be switched for a I-AA game.  UAB has asked to push back our next two games a few years.

I would be on-board with that, so long as the I-AA was a home game for us. 5 consecutive away games is brutal.

Re: 2010

I think we take 8 maybe 9 games this year.

Ill agree with your picks above but ill take either Troy or MTSU as a W (not both though)

and

I think we take a close one in tampa this year…..they lost some good players this year, and will be playing under a new coach.

Re: 2010

I wouldn't mind going 6-2 in conference if it means us going back to another bowl. Until the D proves that they're a good enough and we can stop teams from scoring at will I'm going to say 5-7 record this year and probably 5-3 in conference. I hate being pessimistic but I just can't trust this D at least not yet. I trusted them too many times last season. If we end up playing @UAB and not rescheduling it, they're going to kill us. Joe Webb will have a field day against our D. I want them to prove me wrong, I want to be wrong. I know we can beat MTSU and I know if they give the ball to Morris more than 10x they can probably go toe to toe with Troy too. Time will tell

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
