My prediction-Loser of the 9/8 game between us & UNC is looking for a new

coach in the offseason. Winner of that game goes bowling.

If we lose to UNC, I see POSSIBLE wins vs A&T, ODU, @Temple??? (at least we get to go in early October), UConn and either a win @Tulane or @Cincy but not both leaving us at 5-7, more likely 4-8 dropping the game vs Temple. Even if we go bowling at 5-7 I am not giving credit to Mo for delivering on that.

If we win vs UNC, I see A&T, UNC, ODU, @Temple, and finish with 2 of 3 wins at the end, maybe even a 3 game streak there for 6-6 or 7-5.
We could build enough momentum coming off a win vs ODU and at Temple to pull one off against Houston at home to reach 8 but that's a stretch.

With NO ROOM for error, we are in an uphill battle for bowl eligibility already in this schedule. Not a brutal schedule but pretty dang tough for team trying to scrap and claw their way back to respectability. Mo MUST win game 1 or else he loses EVERYBODY (team, fans, the band, concessions sellers, elevator operators, and anybody else)

Barring a huge upset (hey-I BELIEVE! But his is a "head post" not a "heart post") I believe ODU is an absolute MUST win as well. Lose ODU and I think we have a coaching change following the Memphis game with a 1-8 Montgomery. I'm sure we will sadly have many ODU fans disguised as Pirates on this board if that scenario develops.

If Mo gets us to 6-6 or better this year then I'm 100% on board and believing we've got the right guy!
