I would say the chances are indeed good we are going to get beat at some point this year, whether it is at Ole Miss or this Saturday against ODU. I fail to see anything going into this game or coming out of it that indicates this was anything but a solid win, on the road, with multiple players out injured or quarantined. Beat the Trojans. Beat the spread. Win, win.

We are going to get beat if we keep this up. D is looking better than last year. O not so much. Good news is we have a few weeks to get better.
We are a 3rd year bowl eligible team. ESPNs FPI has us as at 6.6 wins this season. Is your expectation to be undefeated? I mean, I'd love to to undefeated, but that's a fairly lofty target.
Hopefully we will have most of the O-linemen who were out back Saturday. ODU is not as good a football team as Troy, but we still need to TCB.
Solid win. Not taking that away. Yes, I do know there is a game against ODU. As noted above, Troy was/is better. Next big test imo is UAB away as they christen the new stadium. Not taking anything away from the next two opponents but we need all our offensive weapons and a kicking game moving forward. And yes, I do expect 3 losses or less this year. Preferably, 2 or less. Everyone is well aware of conference realignment is going on and this is not the year to go 7-6.
I trust that the staff and players all know what they are doing. I am just hoping we continue to improve the next few weeks and would love to be undefeated going into Ole Miss.
Believing LU Basketball is on the verge of something great since 1991. The Cubs won a World Series so why not LU to the Sweet Sixteen?!
