So, how'd we do

Catching up on what promises to be an extensive analysis of the Falcon football season...I know, the season has been over for a while. So, I've already flagellated myself repeatedly over my awful record picking MAC games. Let's see how I did on the Falcons games....

The record is, in fact, much better. I picked 7 of the 12 games right. I have done better, but there were some years when we had whole months of guaranteed wins. Not this team. I thought we would split OU and CMU--just got them backwards. Obviously, did not see the Temple loss coming. Thought we'd beat Miami, which we probably should have. Didn't see Kent coming.

I think we had modest expectations for this team, and yet the results were more modest than even we had anticipated (to put it in a capsule). I think if you beat Temple and Miami, you're 6-6 and the program feels a whole lot better about itself.
