Path to 7 wins
« on: September 26, 2017, 03:43:29 PM »
We are going to look back at the Army game with dread, but it's too late to change that. At 2-2, where are the 5 wins we need for a bowl bid?

>@Kent
>@Miami
>@Akron
>vs BGSU
>@Ball St.

All winnable games but 4 on the road so none are gimmes.  Do we have a shot?

Absolutely, UB has a chance at these games you've listed.  Plus, WMU has not set the world on fire yet.......the win over Idaho in Kalamazoo was not compelling............so, I believe (could have said Bull - ieve) that all their future games are winnable.  NIU has been curious; the loss at Boston College doesn't look too hot based on the way BC has played of late; Ohio will be the best test.

I honestly think that UB can end up anywhere from 4-8 to 9-3............time for coaching and player development to step up.

Bowling Green won't be the only "bowling" UB does this year, in my opinion!

NIU didn't lose at BC, they lost at home to BC.  Amazing how they looked terrible there and now they look like the old NIU.

I think a bowl is possible this year.
So, thunder through, Go Blue! Give a Cheer, never fear!

One down......three/four to go.  Fun game at Kent.  I think there were as many UB fans there as there were KSU fans............

Next up, WMU :-)

With 7 games, left, we just need to go 4-3.  The way this team is playing, I would say that's not out of the question.
Some good teams still left on our schedule, but there's not reason why we won't be able to beat any of the teams left on our schedule.

Really, would you be shocked if we beat Western this week?  I wouldn't.  They are good and might be the best team we face the rest of the way, but we're on the rise.

Surely at the end.  I give credit to the few dozen students that stuck around for the entire game.  Reminded me of the student turnout vs Akron last year.

I'm shocked we are 7 pt dogs. I don't expect us to be within 10 and I'd be happy if we keep it within 14.

I think we finish at 6 and Army game burns.

Where are you guys getting that this team needs 7 wins? I get 7 is saf, but they only need 6 wins to become bowl eligible and with the crazy amount of bowl games they would get invited with 6.

You gotta remember like 3 to 4 5-7 teams made bowl games last year

Credit where credit is due: this team is a lot more competitive than I expected before the season.  And we're at the point right now where we have to seriously consider if Drew Anderson should be the starter going forward.  I don't know if this team will make it over the hump against some of the best MAC teams this season but they should be able to beat any of the lower half.  All in all, finally some signs that things are moving in the right direction.  Kudos to the staff and players.
