Just my thoughts on the Knights 2012 schedule. Looks to a tough but very fair schedule. When you play 10 teams from your own conference, it's has to be considered fair!
At first glance, you would assume a loss at North Alabama because their D-II and a very good program making the playoffs 3 straight years. Then you would predict a win against Bluefield because it's their very first year of football and it's early in the year before they can gel together.
The other 9 games will be tough but all are winnable, if we remain healthy and play like we are capable of playing. Of course, we could get beat by anybody if we turn the ball over, commit too many penalties especially personal fouls or if we get hit with key injuries.
KCU has 3 "far" away games UNA, Belhaven & Faulkner but they are split up, so we only have one "far" game each month so that's not too bad.
We have 5 home games which is one more than last year so that's definitely an improvement.
Of the teams we played last year and are on the schedule this year.(L.W., Georgetown, Campbellsville, UVA-Wise, Pikeville & Union). KCU either won or had the the halftime lead in all those games except for Union and IMO if we would have played Union later in the year. I feel the Knights would have beaten Union.
We play 5 teams who had winning records last year.
We play 2 teams were in the playoffs (UNA & Georgetown)
We play the 2011 NCCAA Victory Bowl winner (Campbellsville)
It's gonna be a fun ride this year! Go Knights!
