Going to 7-4 from two straight nine wins season would be a very disappointing season.  

And we have yet to play UH this year, moron.  After last year's beat down at Apogee where you look way worse than we did this past Saturday, I was shocked you all won any games.  Trust me, after this

Something is wrong with these calculations if they say we have a better chance of beating Houston and LATech over SoMiss.  Very broken.

7-5 plus a bowl win at least sends Mason Fine out on a high note

Finish the year at 7-5 according to this prediction, and LATech or USM don't get bit by UAB or Rice along the way, then we're 3rd place in our division & staring the Hawaii Bowl in the face.   Great opportunity for the players, but it's gonna suck for us fans who can't get out there.

So how would everyone feel if we ended up 7-5?

Given the losses on the defensive side of the ball, this is where I thought we might end up.

With what we have on offense....knowing we're basically rebuilding it next year...

not good

Here's the way I see it:

This year is phase one of a rebuilding process (defense).  Next year will be phase two (offense).  The year after that MAY be (if a really good QB emerges) the point when we're back to being as talented as we were last season (2018).  And, in some important ways, we have already commenced the offense's rebuilding process since Guyton/Bussey are gone and we're trying things out with a new OC who has not yet figured out how to harness Fine's talent.

It's just frustrating to be rebuilding in year 4 and possibly year 5

I can't think of any G5 program (besides BSU) who has been able to not have to go through periodic down times.   Marshall went on an absolute tear for six straight bowl games, but then missed out 5 of the next 6 years.   USM went to 10 straight, but then missed out on 4 straight. 

I am not happy with the current state we are in, but really it's just a year early.  It was going to take some time to adjust to the post Fine era, it just looks like we are having to start doing some of that now.

My hope is the "rebuilding" won't take long with last years class and what's shaping up to be a good class next year....

Fine is a shadow of the last 3 years. All who blame the offensive line need to Mason's comments at press conferences. " our O line picked up on all front changes Houston made". I know the Cal announcers thought Fine separated a shoulder in the fourth quarter. I know something is wrong as he is consistently wild high with open receivers. It is essential with this year's pathetic secondary that we move the chains and keep the D off the field as much as possible.

Oh man SMU hires some old guys to play and we're bad in second game and people are all down. Look I'm happy if we can consistently win more than lose and especially the home games. So I'm holding off judgement til later in the season. 

Now?

I've officially been broken by FPI's artificial intelligence algorithms and am now a 100% believer.   Looks like we'll be going 7-5.  Good enough to go to the Hawaii Bowl!!
