App State - bolded games are wins
@ Michigan: ugly loss.
vs Campbell: big win
@ Southern Miss: they've won one game their past two years. No reason to think App shouldn't win this one.
@ Georgia Southern: close game Thursday night but we always beat them. I say we edge it out like 28-27, Georgia Southern will miss an extra point or some poo like that.
vs South Alabama: probably the biggest home game all year. USA is really good I say we lose by like 14.
vs Liberty: this should be another pretty easy win. I would hope.
@ Troy: they haven't been that good the past few years but we'll still lose.
vs Georgia State: if there is a team that has been worse than Southern Miss the past few years it's Ga State. At home big win.
vs UL Monroe: this is the one "upset" win I have the Apps grabbing. At home in November there could be some tough conditions for a Louisiana team. They won't be prepared for how loud the rock really gets and the Apps get a really big win here while the rest of the sun belt takes notice.
@ Arkansas State: one of the best teams in the SBC on the road, lose bad
@ UL Lafayette: the best team in the SBC, lose convincingly again
vs Idaho: Idaho is never good. Could be a tougher game than fans think but App still wins and closes the season on a high note
So 7-5 (4-4) would be ecstatic
9-3 next year btw
I can't argue with any of this really except for USM. While it isn't out of the question that App wins, I don't think it is a sure thing (especially with App coming off a 4-8 season in FCS).
USM should be better than they have been the last 2 years. I think they'll end up with 4 or 5 wins this year.
Fedora left them in shambles. He basically recruited for one special season with the hope that'd get him a better job. It worked obviously. He had virtually no talent coming in and they would have been a dumpster fire even if he had stayed.
To make things worse, they made a pretty terrible hire after that. I think they have a good guy in there now, but you don't go from 0-12 to a winning record in a single season. I think they make a lot of progress this year.
