About two weeks or so out...what do you think of UB's chances this year?  How many wins can you find on the schedule?

The Bulls will win 7 games.  But they will lose a few they shoodn't.  Still. they will go to a game after the end of the year.  Maybe the Pinstrip Bowl.

I think 5 wins would be progress. 4 or fewer could mean trouble for LL

I don't see them beating Minnesota, Army, or Florida Atlantic.  The only games I see them possibly winning are Colgate at home, at Kent, at Ball State.  Maybe at Akron.  And I wouldn't count anything automatic against Colgate because they're usually a strong program.  I mean best case scenario they win like 4 games, realistically I'm thinking 2.  I haven't heard any good reasons why this year's team will be any more competitive than last year's.

All:

I just wanted to close the book on this one...

The poll closed on Thursday, prior to the game, so it wasn't influenced at all by the game results.

We had 19 votes.  The measures of central tendency were as follows:

Mode:  4 - 5 wins
Median:   4 - 5 wins
Mean (weighted):  3.34 wins

Based on the general optimism following Thursday's game, my guess is that these measures would be a bit higher if I were to rerun the poll now. 

Go Bulls!

Good morning

We can clearly play. So much better than last year. But... do we know how to win the two fumbles just the past. The truly stupid penalties really bad  why such poor composure. The play calling was predictable

I see 4 wins maybe we squeeze out 6 but please stop the aviadsblevwreors

Go Bulls

Hi

The words are mental errors -  need more composure

Have a great day

Go Bulls

Congrats to Coach Leipold, his staff and the players. Definitely was a year of progress for the program. They were so close to having 7 wins before the Ohio game will be played. Just wanted to put this out before the game because This looks like a team that can contend for bowls and conference championships for the next couple of years

Mea culpa. Credit to the players and staff, they've been a competitive team in every game and made more of this season than I could've expected beforehand.  I think Tyree has a lot to improve and grow from but he looked better as the season wore on.  The defense bent but didn't break too much.  Anthony Johnson is almost uncoverable at the MAC level.  After a couple rough seasons they took some great steps forward this year.  There is a lot to be optimistic about next year.

It's been a good year when UB scores an average of more points per game than their opponents did. 
That has only happened a couple other times while in the MAC.  The attached file shows a graph of the trend...
