Week # 2 UMO Vs. Western Kentucky Predictions

Postby Archer Bunker » Sat Sep 01, 2018 8:05 pm

Was impressed with UMO Vs. UNH and from what I saw I think the Western Kentucky game is very much a winnable game. If UMO's defense can hold these guys anything like they did against UNH it will give Fergie even more confidence on the offense. I like UMO for their 2nd strait upset.

UMO 28
W. Kentuky 17

GO! GO! UMO!

What a crock of BS, to put UNH above us after we totally dominated them. Maine never gets respect until the end of the season so I guess we shouldn't be surprised, but this is just wrong :(

This looks to set up like this:

UNH bounces back and beats a FCS school (Colgate) at home to remain inside the Top 25.

Maine goes on the road and loses a tight one to a FBS school (WKU) and falls outside the Top 25.

Sooooo...both 1-1 and the head to head means nothing to the pollsters (Coaches in this instance.)

Bizarre.

Pre-Season Polls are great to establish a baseline for the coming season but I've noticed that voters are very lazy when it comes to moving teams in and out of the poll for the first month. I can understand if UNH had lost a game to someone else and Maine had beaten someone else.....but they played head to head for cripes sake! And it wasn't even close!!!

Anyway, the best poll out there is the Any Given Saturday Poll. It's an FCS fan poll....and they know there stuff! They follow the FCS and the games religiously.

I think Maine could win this game (and they probably have a better chance this week than next) but WKU was a decent bowl team last year and they're at home.

I think this Maine team has some moxie and very good talent.

Maine 26 (two missed extra points)
WKU 24

Decent bowl team last year, but their all world QB is long gone. They are starting from scratch on offense.
A stellar performance by Maine's defense can lead them to a win.
