Cincy's going to win, A&M's going to lose big enough. Game to watch right now is TX Tech-Baylor (FS1) or Washington St.-AZ State if you can get it.

Side note, it appears there are tons of fans sitting on a lawn behind one of Baylor's end zones, but that can't be true, as I've read many times on this board that something like that makes a stadium look small-time and outdated.

If we horseshoe and have enough seats in one endzone I think we can keep the hill. If we ever get to where we are having 35-40k at games though we may need to adds seats there as well. I have no clue on architecture so I'm not sure what our potential max seating would be.

If Minnesota, Baylor, Or Wake Forest goes down we will be ranked next week. Like I said what 2 weeks ago, everything is going to play out. We just keep winning and we will be ranked and just start slotting up. The only team below us right now that I could see leapfrogging us is Hawaii if they win.

Spoke too soon, TTU let them come back on a 100 yard drive with a minute left

Baylor should have lost. Texas Tech blew it and then the refs screwed them MASSIVELY in OT.

What we need more than any of these teams losing though is for us to win big. I am talking if the line is 13 next week we need to win by 24 or more. We really need some wins that as I like to call it "leave no doubt". I'm not as worried about the rest of the country if we win big weekly. The more we tinker around the betting line the more I feel like we need Cincinnati and Memphis to lose again and for Hawaii, Boise State, Wake Forest, etc type teams to take 2 losses.

Looking at the renderings they have of what the stadium is going to look like after the NEZ is finished, it would look like they’d expand the seats inward towards the sidelines before they did any horseshoeing, but idk.


In other news, maybe Satterfield can pull a solid for us and knock the Deacs down a notch or two.

Yeah I like the horseshoe idea I saw better but I'm sure it will look great.

It definitely helps us and I thought this was a game they could lose. Wake Forest should lose 2 more games after this for sure.

Appears there isn’t much defense in the UofL/Wake game right now. Scoring on every drive.

They need to kick Iowa out of the top 25 even though it won't happen. Their offense is disgusting.

I have to admit, Minnesota looks to be improving.

You know, looking at some of these scores today, it makes me frustrated all over again how we were all but ignored in the preseason polls.

Nebraska sucked last year, was somehow ranked in the preseason, and sucks again this year.

Army was comparable to us last year but finished in the top 20, then started this year just outside the top 25. Got dominated by WKU today to fall to 3-3.

Miami coming off a mediocre season, nearly ranked in the preseason, mediocre again this year. Same for TCU.

Where would we be ranked now if we'd started out with the support those teams got instead of basically having to start over from scratch?

Quick side note:


I’ll be curious to see if NDSU takes a step back in the event PJ Fleck makes the Gophers a legit Big 10 team.

They’ve been awful forever and I think it’s benefited the Bison to be dominant and geographically isolated from a branding and recruiting perspective.


I’m of the opinion that a strong Gophers program is bad news for the Bison.

I don't follow their recruiting at all, but I'd be surprised if they're beating out Big Ten teams for recruits.

I'd also be surprised if Fleck hangs around Minnesota very long if he keeps winning.

Yeah I don’t know enough about the recruiting either, but I can’t imagine the Gophers have had great recruiting classes prior to Flecks arrival.

Big 10 certainly will help them out in that regard, but they’ve been a basement dweller forever. I could see some North Dakota kid going to NDSU to win FCS Championships over going 3-9 in FBS.

Side note 2:

UNCC got blasted again today, remember when they were gonna be awesome this year and finally take the city of Charlotte and NC by storm? Lol.
