Wow. This is really becoming hilarious. We are a joke right now. Time for this team to stop riding the Kiffin hype and actually start producing. The way we are playing we shouldn't be favored over anyone more than -3 home or away.
This means FAU is predicted to score 1.2 points less than the average college football team and ODU 9.7 points less.
The Ratings were created to try and create predictability along the same lines as Vegas (and Kiffin Hype is not part of the equation).
Therefore FAU is predicted to win (interestingly enough the Ratings difference does not match the Vegas spread, points wise).
So which ODU team do we see? Better - which FAU team do we see (one that finds a groove offensively so the defense can play like they did last season, or what we have seen so far this year)?
I actually watched the ODU @ Charlotte game (I am a glutton for punishment), and if that is the team that shows up we should roll. But like lots of the other posts say we have to figure out who we want to be offensively. Running team, play DJ; balanced team, start running more timing passes and take some shots; but regardless of which, get going fast again and get rhythm and timing back so we don't wear Motor out before we get half-way through the season.
We don't even get the benefits of home field advantage with our low attendance numbers.
Too many other factors currently out there for us - science doesn't apply.
I expect a Qb change and some new schemes because what we have been doing isn't working.
Looking forward to another great tailgate at the alumni center and to watching another great game at home.
