6.5 points against the 130th ranked defense in the country. Of course, having the worst offense, that is probably more than fair. Not sure Cougars will cover the spread for the first time this year.

While I don't think we will lose all of the remaining games, I don't consider ANY of them an automatic win. ANY of them are capable of beating us.

I'm not six and half points confident in next weeks road game on the opposite coast. I think we could lose all our remaining road games. The only games I'm a little confident in are the two remaining home games against San Jose St and Massachusetts.

I am going to be so bold as to say we will now win out.I think they will eek out a few wins and get some confidence and begin playing a little better.The big problem is it will mask the real weaknesses of the team few changes will be made because it will look like the ship has been righted and we will get to live through a similar disaster next year.

Up to 7.5 points now. I think we will actually cover, for once.

I hope the team doesn't know they are favored. This team isn't good enough to feel comfortable against anyone.

Traditionally a good defense beats a good offense. Does the reverse also hold true? An abysmal defense beats an atrocious offense?
