    That master schedule is rather hard to read/decipher. Do we really have seven home games?

    I'm surprised that we got two non-Saturday home games and that we play the 2 probable preseason favorites during sweeps. It has Wake during Fall Break. The only thing I like about that schedule is that we play @Pitt when it won't snow.

    Floor of 4 wins, ceiling of 10. Looking forward to whispers about the QB situation trickling out during Spring Practice.

    Nice beginning of the season, three relatively (emphasis) easy games to break in a new QB, OC, etc...

    My reaction as well. No Alabama on the schedule...

    Three likely non-conference wins (as opposed to two this year) make a bowl bid much more attainable. I also second the opinion of many who have mentioned that the easy start will be useful for getting our QB situation settled.

    Our home/road split also seems reasonably favorable. Virginia and Virginia Tech may be two of the harder games on the schedule, but getting them at home (and towards the end of the season, when Cut has had time to work his magic with our new QB) will make a victory a non-trivial possibility.

    At first blush, I see three wins (MTSU, Elon and GTech). The rest, as of today, seem like losses or toss-ups (Charlotte, Miami, Cheats) at best.

    Charlotte isn't a game to look at as a guaranteed win, they are good. Starting with them, there are six straight games against teams that went bowling last year.
    In fact there are only three teams on the schedule that stayed home like we did. Elon, MTSU, and GT.

    When we are 7-0 and ranked in the top 15 heading into that match with Notre Dame, the game be broadcast nationwide on NBC, right?

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Ok, we're going overboard here. Charlotte has built a nice mid-level program. Charlotte is not a guaranteed win the way Elon is, but they aren't that far ahead of MTSU. They are a likely win and a should win. We should beat them and beat them handily. Yeesh.

    yeah, looking at season ending Sagarin standings and his point system, Duke is at roughly 66, Elon 50, MTSU 56, Charlotte 58...plus I'd like to think that the new offense (personnel and coaches if not scheme) will improve us greatly...so we should be double figure favorites at home vs each of them...gotta win all three.

    We thought the same about Syracuse.

    No home game during Thanksgiving is always a good thing.

    Open date after week 7. Could be worse.

    That doesn't change that we should have expected to beat them going in. Upsets do happen, obviously, but Charlotte beating Duke would be a substantial upset.

    I hate to be defeatist but our odds of beating Notre Dame are virtually zero. So I would have rather had the bye week heading into a game where we have a decent chance of winning.

    Fall break is very early, so the Wake game is over break. That is unfortunate.

    Otherwise no major complaints.

    Pitt will have a really good Defense coming back. No picnic (as if they ever were).
