Regarding the poll, I think winning the AAC championship game is the main goal. You always want to best your regular season foes and win the CCG. This will accomplish getting to a bowl with relative certainty. I'd love to win the bowl too, but so much of a bowl game is a different and getting the extra practice and trip is huge for the next season/recruiting. It's too early to say New Year's Six or bust and winning Bowl game isn't as important as regular season and CCG IMO.

In general, I agree with wanting to win the CCG. This year though, I can't say I expect it. It does help that there was coaching turnover in the league. And our schedule doesn't seem all that unmanageable. I'm hoping for a 7-6/8-5 type season and something to build on for the future. Obviously anything better would be great, but I just can't put that on Fickell right away after taking over Tornado Tubby's wreckage.

Maybe, Tornado Tubby was just laying a strong foundation??
