    One thing I do want to add. After really looking at the schedule, for how unbalanced it is it sets up about as nicely as it could. No monster stretches of tough games like UNI has, for the most part the toughest games get broken up by an ISUb or Misery St at home. So that's a definite plus, as much as I personally hate having the Marker Game that early in the year. Like hate hate hate it. That game should always be one of the last two of the year, unless the Valley is angling to try to get it on Gameday.

    I see a 7-4 season. 2-2 after four games. Jacks will lose two more then. Look out for Indy St after the Bison as Mallory will have his team ready for a huge upset and first game vs the Jacks. I see the Redbirds and UNI running all over the defense as in the past. The SIU road game won’t be easy, see 2016 game, and the qb there is pretty good. TC will have to win games passing as I see defenses stopping the run and playing the JMU pass defense.

    I see us at 8-3 with losses at Iowa State, NDSU, and Illinois State.

    W-L record aside I think in order for this season to be a success we need to play well enough to get seeded and make it to at least the quarters. If no seed we likely get fed to the Bison in the 2nd round of the playoffs. A 2nd round playoff exit would be pretty disappointing.

    Here is how I see it, which is pretty close to yours, just more middle weighted and not so bottom weighted. With our home schedule, I find it very hard to believe we go 5-6 or even 6-5.:

    11-0 2% chance
    10-1 8%
    9-2 20%
    8-3 40%
    7-4 20%
    6-5 8%
    5-6 (or worse) 2%

    Put it this way... if you could bet on our regular season win total, I think the line would be set right at 8.
    I maybe could be talked into that. It's dang near a no lose deal!

    Best case:
    Running game comes together, allowing for more PA passes to our speedy (smaller) wideouts.
    DT's develop niceley, and DE's generate more of a pass rush...the secondary is solid, but the safeties come along quickly.
    10-1 or 9-2

    Worst Case:
    Running game struggles, WR's and TE's struggle to get open... TC running for his life.
    D-line struggles to close holes or generate pass rush...
    5-6

    The truth will probably happen somewhere in the middle, so my guess is 7 or 8 wins.
