Welcome to the first look and picks for the biggest games of the 2017 college football season. These quick thoughts are being done in early June, with the real Fearless Prediction and expanded breakdown coming in August.
Early June First Thought: What’s Going To Happen?
Just how good is Memphis going to be? It’s a loaded team with a world of upside in the American Athletic race, and while this game might not mean much if it struggles, for a team this good, getting off to a hot start would be terrific going into a road game against UCF.
ULM just wants something fun to happen. There was some hope after a little bit of a run late in Matt Viator’s first season, but now his team needs to look like it’ll be more than just a speed bump for the better Sun Belt squads.
The offense has hope as long as QB Garrett Smith is healthy. Now it’s up to the Warhawk defense to be able to hold up, with a slew of veteran tacklers back, but with the run defense that was such a big problem needing to show that this really is a new year with a better team.
Can Smith and the ULM O bomb away on the very, very suspect Memphis secondary? Yeah, but Riley Ferguson and the Tiger offense should be able to throw without a problem, too.
It’ll be too tempting not to start running the ball early against this Warhawk D, but MU will start to pull away once the offense gets into a second half groove.
