Wisdom of the Blog----Expectations 2008

Well, we're an optimistic bunch. The 2008 expectations poll ran as follows:
  1. Deep into the playoffs 47 votes (53%)
  2. To the National Championship Game 25 votes (28%)
  3. Just miss the playoffs with a 7-5 record 6 votes (6%)
  4. Make the playoffs 4 votes (4%)
  5. Loosing record 4 votes (4% probably UConn trolls and "Tubby Raymond")
  6. About .500 record 2 votes (2%)
The lowest poll ranking I've seen for the Minutemen was 12th, so it seems we are in line with the professional writers.

A lot has to go right to make it to the National Championship game, but I think this is a powerful club and we should be a force in 2008.

My vote is 1 - into the playoffs. Should be a category into the playoffs. Not sure about the 3'rd round.

We will make the playoffs but won't be in the National Championship Game because of our DL. Our weakness on defense is our DL. If we can stop the top running teams my opinion will certainly change. Appalachian State ran over us in the championship game and would have done so if we played them earlier. Last year same problem vs. SIU (46 carries of 246 yards).

Lets hope our DL exceeds all expectations and that I am wrong.
