And the home September games will, for better or worse, likely not be picked up by major networks so hopefully they can be night games. No home game over fall break. Except for the Saturday game of Thanksgiving weekend, the schedule (not commenting on the opponents) is about as good as it can be.

7-5 expectation but I think significantly higher upside potential.

Do we get 20K people in the stands for any of those games?

Only North Texas because 50% of the stadium will be full of goobers

Too early to call until we know what next year's starting lineup looks like and who our QB will be, but I don't know why everyone would b confident there are 7 or more wins on that schedule, based on what this team showed us last season.

How do you shatter home attendance records when the entire home schedule is of almost no interest to any one other than UNT?????

Looks like the QB position has been settled today

And some of us heard about the QB last night before making a record prediction :).

UNT will be well attended if we beat Arkie St.

Who is TCU's QB next season?

ECU for homecoming is either to get to 6 wins and a bowl, or we upset one of the previous 4 road games and generate some excitement.

Honestly, though, if the OL holds up, this is could be a really good offense. Give me this: Morris, Ali, Howerton, good GT, Thomas and I think that is a good line. Hell, if Thomas could play as a true frosh I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the frosh guards show up ready to play. Times have changed. We have running backs, WR, and now a QB.

Defensively, tons of depth on the DL, and a playmaker in Wiley. Corner is a concern, but I don't think we are done there. LB we are suddenly deep, and are starting safeties are good.

I think we could see significant steps forward on both sides of the ball when you add maturity and depth. I think we get one of the two games at TCU or at UCF.
