    PV, according to Massey is going to have the 2nd strongest team in the SWAC behind Grambling. 11% chance of winning? After simulating the game, Rice 35, PV 18. Again on the other simulator, 40-21 loss.

    I think they are going to use that Stanford smash-mouth approach w/ great athletes. They have twins @ the RB position (scat back types) coupled w/ a big bruiser who also has speed so it will be interesting. If we cannot control the LOS on O or D, we're toast.

    Coach Dooley and staff recruited tremendous student-athletes (txfers) who should have an impact on our O and D. The WR position is ridiculously intriguing but the question remains... will the heralded QB have time to play pitch-and-catch??? can the OL control the LOS to open space for a few speedy RBs? Will discipline find this team?

    Are you sure on the bolded part? I swear App St was ranked 25th after Edwards put some smack down on #4 Michigan.

    I pulled this from Wiki. It could be wrong. And, that Michigan game was amazing.

    It was during my daughter's birthday party. I kept telling people "excuse me, I'll be right back." Every time I went to the television, another TD happened. Wow!

    I'm pretty sure that game was the impetus behind allowing voters to vote for FCS teams in the big boy's AP Poll. IIRC there was some confusion about whether that was even allowed after that App St/Michigan game so App didn't get as many votes as they probably would've since not all voters knew they were even eligible. I'm pretty sure that tidbit is accurate though about NDSU getting the most points ever in the AP Poll for an FCS team after beating Iowa.

    EDIT: I guess App St must've technically been ineligible still since they didn't get any votes in the AP poll immediately after that Michigan game (http://collegepollarchive.com/footba...8#.W23VWuSWwpU). The following week they received 19 votes though so that must've been when the FCS team eligibility change was made (http://collegepollarchive.com/footba...9#.W23Vs-SWwpU).

    Re: 2018 FCS vs. FBS games

    Well, this is the last week before the season starts. It appears around 10% of the games are won by FCS teams. Here is to hoping 11 to 12 win against FBS teams this year.

    For whatever it is worth, I'll definitely attend one FCS vs FBS game in 2018 (9/1: Villanova/Temple) and probably will attend two (9/15: Lehigh/Navy, if the Temple/Maryland game isn't close late and doesn't go long time-wise).

    You have a rivalry game to start then a tough one with Colgate before heading to Folsom Field. That's a BRUTAL stretch. No wonder the bye comes in week 4. The Buffs should be pretty decent. The PAC 12 South is wide open. They could easily be an 8 win team with a break or two. I think UNH will do well to keep this within 3 TDs....
