    2018-what would you consider a success?

    My Mocs Had a tough year in 2017, so the realist in me thinks 6-5 is a solid year. I also know that 7-4 in the soCon with our OOC could mean playoffs. 8-3 for sure post season. We have an FBS game at USC, so that is probably 0-1, we play Tenn Tech and UT Martin, so could be 2-0 or 1-1 in FCS OOC. Figuring 1-2 OOC, we would be 5-3 in the SoCon at 6-5 and I'd consider that a success....not a grand success, but the bottom of the barrel success. 2-1 OOC and 5-3 in SoCon is a little better and 2-1 and 6-2 gets us a bid in the playoffs....but that is an outside shot. So What would you consider a successful 2018? Be realistic.

    Winning a national championship. I'm not kidding when I say that 2016 felt like a huge failure of a year when we lost in the semifinals. We beat FBS #11 Iowa and the year was a throw away. Our perspectives, or at least mine, are completely warped.

    To me a successful season is a semi-final appearance and a conference championship.

    National championships are dream seasons. We have a warped version of normal.

    Winning the OVC and Winning a playoff game would be a success in my eyes unrealistically. Realistically though a conference championship would suffice.

    After being dicked over by a coach during the playoffs cutting short the potential we really had, success for us would be to make progress in the playoffs. We lost alot but apparently had a good recruiting class so I foresee a winning season and an outside shot at the playoffs.

    7-4, make the playoffs...not get sent to the toughest unseeded team in the playoffs.
