The glass is half empty view of UB Football in 2018
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:43:44 PM »
During the last several months there has been a lot of optimism surrounding our UB Bulls football team for this fall.

Someone that has a less optimistic view posted a MAC East report recently and it is worth a read.

Note that if you prefer to make "a good thing even better" (as per Lisa Simpson), Bovada has UB's win total o/u at 6.5.  I don't think I have read a single prediction from any fans that gave us less than 7 wins

Honestly, I could see this team at 8-4 maybe even 9-5; but the 6-6 call isn't out of the realm of possibility.  It will come down to defense.  UB will score their share of points.  Can they stop the bad guys.

I say "yes" and vote the 8-4...but my glasses are rosy!

Who is kicking for UB? Frankly, I hate busting on student athletes, but we lost many games because of missed KGs and XPs. That could be our undoing this year.

I believe our kicker is still Mitcheson. Could definitely use some more consistency from him in his senior year. Not sure who is up next in line

Play calling and kicking during the Akron game alone cost us a trip to Detroit.
So, thunder through, Go Blue! Give a Cheer, never fear!
