    Probably not, probably not and I hope Chuck does. If Chuck has a break out season my first answers will change.

    I will wager my house that we'll go 1-3 OOC. After that, I have no idea.

    L @ Iowa
    W vs. Tennessee Tech

    L @ Ohio St.

    L @ Ohio
    W vs. Bowling Green
    W vs. Akron
    W @ Ball St.

    6-6 (5-3). Second in the division behind Ohio. Attendance and morale is abysmal because of the slow start. Snubbed for a bowl game again.

    It's never really a good year to have to start a QB that's never played a snap. But man, this is an especially brutal season to have that hurdle. One of the toughest OOC schedules possibly in Miami football history? Two top 25 teams and a UC team that won 11 games last season. Depth will be tested early and it'll be vital for chuck to have a QB ready for MAC play. While I'm chalking up three OOC loses, I think this team has enough talent and experience at spots to contend for a MAC title. My guess is this team ends up 7-5, makes a bowl, but finishes second in the east and doesn't go to the MACCG.

    The bigger question is what are Sayler's expectations for this season. Chuck is hanging on by a thread, but Sayler probably has to cut him a little slack with Iowa and Ohio State on the schedule. Does 7-5, a bowl appearance, but no MAC title game get him another year?

    I wouldn't really call a 6-6 MAC team a snub.

    Must get 7 wins for a bowl. That means winning every game should win and at least 1 were the team will be the underdog.

    How good is UC supposed to be in 2019?

    That is exactly the result I get...same wins and losses against same teams as you do. While this is an early look, anything better would be a pleasant surprise; anything worse, another disappointment.

    Our OOC usually puts us into an early hole. By comparison, OU usually schedules OOC to go at least 2-2, while we always play a tougher OOC sched and end up 1-3. That one game differential usually spells bowl vs non-bowl.

    Ohio U won't win the MAC. Some things never change.

    7-5.  We beat either NIU or WMU on the road. Attendance (announced vs. actual) discrepency hits all-time high.

    Three straight wins to end the season!! Chuck returns!! Fans are excited already about 2020-21!!

    I think you keep Chuck for the next two years, no matter how this year ends up (sans anything less than 4 wins). The schedule is brutal and we lose major contributors in both sides of the ball.

    Am I the only one who believes we will have a hard time against Buffalo?
  • FootbalheadFootbalhead Dodds God
    7-5 is probably absolute best with this years schedule.

    They lost their All Conference QB, WR and LB so not sure how good Buffalo will be
  • mexicohawkmexicohawk Dodds God
    With an inexperienced QB I predict 5-7.
  • NescacdadNescacdad Senior Barfly
    I see it pretty much the way QBurger does. Could lose at Kent and beat NIU at home but the result would be the same at 6-6. Need to do that and pull an upset somewhere to get to 7-5 and a bowl.
  • rexjack53rexjack53 Senior Barfly
    A lot will be known after the first 4 games. Hope a QB is settled upon by then. Guess most expect a 1-3 record.

    I think very little will be known after 3 games. The performances against Tennessee Tech and UC will give us an idea, but we won't learn too much from Iowa and Ohio State.

    that's why I said 4 games. UC game should tell us something too along with the Buffalo game.
  • Spanks004Spanks004 Wealthy Alum
    I just wish we didn't play both Iowa and OSU...brutal
  • dave67dave67 Wealthy Alum
    I'll make a prediction after game 11.  Pre season predictions lately are like fools gold; get all excited with hope, but in the end there's no glory.

    Typo on my part. Meant to say 4.
    Buffalo is the 5th game.


  • rexjack53rexjack53 Senior Barfly
    Ooops
  • RenmancoRenmanco Wealthy Alum
    We'll have the most definitive answer after the season is over....until then, I'll stick with 6-6 within a comfort range of 7-6 and 5-7.

    11-1 with the lone loss coming at home against Tennessee Tech. Big let down after our upset at Iowa, but the ship is righted after the Tennessee Tech debacle.

    I agree that we will be favored in Columbus

    That would almost be like the 1995 season for Northwestern
