I with you Aaron. I think FAU will probably finish second behind Marshall in the East.

I don't really get the fuss over FAU. I thin khad we played them at home they wouldn't be thought of so highly. We played like crap down there. Even FIU was bad in the first half for us. Yes they finished they 4-0 but that was aginst 7-5 Tulane, 1-11 S.Miss, 2-10 New Mexico St, and 1-11 FIU. I could see them maybe getting back to 6-6 but I don't see them as a challenger for the east.

Wyoming is a toss up game but I give the edge to Wyoming because FAU has to travel there and who knows what Tulsa is going to look like this season.  Last year was a disaster out there.

I think with the new staff they will take a step back.  They are already losing recruits from the 2015 class.  Their top recruit just decommitted and that is a huge blow  because he was one of the best RBs in the 2015 class.

I just see the East as pretty weak.

I am not putting much stock in MTSU, ODU and WKU.

Add UAB and FIU and bam, bowl eligible.

Very true.  I think MTSU won't be that great this season.  Replacing Kilgore will be a pretty tall task as he was a record setting QB for them.  WKU has a solid program that has potential.  I just know that FAU and FIU are last resort schools in Florida.  I have heard our guys say over and over and over again that the feeling down there is that your would rather go out of state then go to FAU or FIU.  Cristobol was bucking that trend at FIU and that is why I don't understand why they fired him.  Heck he nearly had Cato but Shuler stayed on him to get him to switch to us.

But yea the east right now is a disgrace compared to year's past.  There is no reason we shouldn't be a mainstay in that Title game each and every year.

FAU has a very good qb and a very good defensive back. That will allow them to beat enough teams to be bowl eligible.

3 games that we could overlook and lose: @ Akron, @ ODU, vs FAU.
I don't think we lose to FAU at home, but they will play us tough.
We seem to play poorly in front of empty stadiums, ie. Akron, plus this game is a week after what should be an emotional game against Ohio. I say emotional, because I think this is one our team has circled on their calendars. A revenge game.
And while ODU is not on par athletically with us, I could see this being their super bowl in front of a big home crowd, and we may be looking ahead to seek revenge on MTSU the following week. This could be the look ahead pitfall.

Having said all of that, I will be disappointed if we lose a single game. We have the talent to win them all and should be favored to win them all.

As far as the West Division, it will come down to North Texas and UTSA. I see us playing UTSA in the championship game.

ODU though is no where near MTSU from last year.

Also, they have lost their top three WR's I believe and a starting defender.
