GS-
09/01 - Presbyterian
09/08 - UMass
09/15 - at Clemson
10/20 - at New Mexico State

Southern takes care of business at home with more energetic fan base even though it's early in the year with new offense and defense. I'd like to see how that October 20 game falls on the schedule, considering GS consistently gets selected for the horrible Wednesday evening games. I would assume Southern would not have to travel to New Mexico State after a Saturday evening game unless the SBC (powers that be) truly wants us to fail vs a former conference member.

I'm predicting 3-1. Wow more wins than we had of all of last season.

LA definitely has the toughest OOC schedule next season. ULM, USA, & GSU also have pretty tough OOC schedules. Most others should be able to perform well given their OOC schedules. It should be a great showing by the Sun Belt next season!

If we can find that ‘early season Hansen’, and somehow find a way to keep him at the top of his game, we will only lose one game.
If the same Hansen that finished the year shows up, SEMO isn’t a sure win.

Bama is going to be very good next year and is going to kill us. I'm not sure what qualifies as a "good performance" against them? Saban's not known for running up the score, so is 42-10 a good result against Bama, or not enough?

I think I'll base our performance based on how many points we put up on their starting defense. One touchdown would be a good sign.

That said we have a better shot at losing to Boise State than Nebraska. Boise State returns a lot next year

I think we'll be good next year but we'll need a lot to go right to get to 4-0. Beat Boise, and I think it gets a lot easier.

Agreed, if we beat Boise State we should win the rest. With it being at home, new stadium expansion open. Possible sell out. And the fact that Brown is what 4-0 in revenge games?

I'm not sure I'd count Nebraska as a win. Especially if Frost is able to bring in the guys he wants.

It’s going to take time to build there... and didn’t stAte beat Frost in his first year at UCF in the bowl?

A UCF team that finished 6-6 and had no desire to play in that game whatsoever...yes. Nebraska played us a tougher game than you guys did honestly.

Yea, I'm not so sure Troy will be favored in that game either. Nebraska still has B1G talent and will be on the rise with a new coach. With the LSU win, there won't be any sneaking up on them either. I'd say its 50/50 at best even with all the unprovens.
