I think this will be a close game like last season's opener.

UNH will likely score in the low 20s. Maine defense will be solid and maybe even great this year. The big question for me is the offense. Ferguson needs to be better. I know the narrative on him has changed in the off season to focus on decent passing yards and touchdowns. However, I watched every game last year and thought he was, frankly, terrible. He seemed to flop in every clutch situation. I had no confidence in him to make a play to win a game. It was doubly frustrating since they had, and will still have, so much talent at WR. So, I think that this year's success or failure rests heavily on the improvement of Ferguson. If he can consistently get the ball to Edwards and Wright they can be a playoff team. If not, it's a repeat of last year.

I'm starting optimistic...

I thought for a freshman Ferguson was not bad but certainly expect to see improvement this year. Have a lot of faith in our defense but this UNH team will certainly be a test. I expect us to swarm to the ball and hold the run game in tact. If we can minimize turnovers and the OL which is the real question with this team can give Fergy time and open holes for the running game I like our chances of keeping the Muster in Orono.

I'd love AB to be right. I'd love to be proven wrong. I'll be watching the game and hoping for a huge win. However, I have nothing but pride and love of UMaine to point to in choosing them to win. UNH looks tougher at almost every position and we haven't proven able to beat them since the Clinton administration. Maine has my heart, but if I was a betting man I'd have to say:

New Hampshire Wildcats 31,
Maine Black Bears 20

Let's go Maine!
