Looking so forward to this game. I think the offense will be really good. Defensively, we have talent but the youth concerns me. I think special teams will be a good, but field goals could be challenging. And the coaches will have us prepared. First time in a long time where I look at the schedule and think there is only one team we cannot beat. I hope we pass our first test this Thursday. Wake Forest is a very good team, very underrated, and excellently coached. Looking forward to Thursday night and wishing long time Greenie fan Dennis Fremin could be there with us!

I think we will score a lot and I think Wake will struggle with a freshman QB as we stack the box to stop the run. However, our youth will allow them to connect on more than one long bomb "miracle" and keep it close (likely artificially padding their QB's stats and making him appear to have done better than he actually did).

I think we win outright in a high-scoring shoot-out.

No, I'm telling you that ESPN got their odds backwards. :-)

I think Pete is right: lots of points, and Tulane wins straight up.

Defense will look really solid for a series, then will get gashed. Offense will repeatedly ding big plays but struggle getting into the end zone a couple times.

It would not surprise me to see a 41-38 score when the final gun goes off.
