    Re: 2017 (Way Too early) Colonial Athletic Football Conference Predictions

    as far as the other teams, I can't see Delaware going 2-6. As much as I can't stand Rocco, he will have them closer to 4-4. not sure about Richmond at 7-1. They certainly have the talent, but a new coach would have me worried. before you point out the hypocrisy of what I just said about Delaware, remember this: Delaware has sucked for the last several years. Richmond hasn't. Delaware has nowhere to go but up. I'm not saying Richmond will be bad, because again, they're very talented. But 7-1 with a brand new coach would be incredible.

    oh and I agree with KPSUL about UNH. 4-4 seems crazy to me. 6-2 would be the safe bet.

    The Citadel went 8-0 last year in the Southern Conference which is a better league than the CAA with a new coach...

    The CAA had a team that went 8-0 in regular season conference play also. How'd your 8-0 team do in the playoffs last season?

    Hey now, we didn't sell houston short. Anything can happen, but 7-1 with our loss being to y'all (if we must) seems like a realistic, although like you said "incredible", season. I think the conference championship should come down to our game once again.

    Also, I really like Albany this year. Maybe I'm the only one

    Albany could be very good, depending on a few things. How well Hanks comes back from a great sophomore season and a torn ACL, whether Brunson can step up at QB and whether the new OL, with lots of beef up front, can give both those guys time. The defense should be very good.

    Albany is one more year away from making serious noise...for all the reasons noted above.

    I was at the JMU @ Richmond game. It was an excellent game, maybe the best CAA conference game of the season. However, the championship did not come down to that one game. Richmond ended up 5-3 in the conference. Even if JMU had lost that game they still would have won sole possession of the championship at 7-1. Had they won, U of R would have been in a 3 way tie for 2nd rather than tied for 4th with Maine.

    i'd also like to point out that our defense really didn't figure it out until the Villanova game at the end of the year. there were flashes before that, but it all clicked then and they never looked back. scheme is more aggressive, too, with much more press man than earlier in the year. i now want to see Lauletta against a much more confident, veteran group.
