2017 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The excitement of the first game in the FBS world leads to a win over UMass to start the season out in Brooks Stadium, and after a week off, it’s followed up by wins over UAB and Western Illinois for a shocking 3-0 start. Remember – Coastal Carolina was a special FCS program, and would’ve been competitive with Sun Belt teams if it was still at the lower level. The Chanticleers come up with home wins over Georgia State and Texas State, and after a week off late, beat Georgia Southern on the way to a winning season.

2017 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

UMass is a little stronger in a tough early win, and then after coming up with wins over UAB and Western Illinois, the Sun Belt proves to be too good in CCU’s Year One. Even some of the league’s projected doormats like ULM and Texas State pull off wins, and the Chanticleers struggle to come up with one or two league wins on the way to a four-win season.
