    Re: Dyer to Louisville

    Wow, to think that is a real schedule. What a joke, worse than Iowa and Nebraska's in the coming years.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Dyer to Louisville

    With Dyer and Bridgewater, I don't see a game on that schedule that I would count as an immediate loss. Someone might sneak up to bite them, but at first glance, they go undefeated.

    Re: Dyer to Louisville

    Phil Steele’s 2013 College Football Strength of Schedule Rankings

    Phil Steele has them as the 98 hardest schedule, out of 126. Lowest BIG team is Wisconsin at 69. Lowest Big12 team is WV at 44.

    I don't see how they don't go undefeated in the regular season.

    They'll be favored in every game but I'd be surprised if they don't drop a game or two along the line. Even if they have a 90% chance of winning any individual game that only gives them about a 28% chance of going undefeated. And 90% is probably high even with that schedule.

    Re: Dyer to Louisville

    Apparently when Deace was making his prediction of no college team going undefeated, he hadn't seen this schedule yet. According to the USA Today pre-season poll, Ohio (#41 with 8 total votes) is the toughest team L'ville will face all year, and that game is at home. The toughest game they might have all year is on the road at Cincy. Wow.

    Re: Dyer to Louisville

    I heard Louis to Dyersville is happening as well, that's not getting as much attention.
