From 10-3 in 2008 to 2-10 in 2009. Few teams have fallen on hard times as quickly as the Owls, who found themselves near the bottom of several categories when last season came to an end. Rushing offense: 104. Total offense: 111. Scoring offense: 110. Rushing defense: 102. Pass efficiency defense: 119. Total defense: 117. Scoring defense: 120. The list goes on, but you get the idea. So is there a stunning turnaround in the works? Perhaps. Working against Rice is a schedule that includes three BCS opponents in the first four games. If it can survive that stretch, the second half of the schedule is manageable.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
Last year, the site displayed 69 posters. This is poster No. 45 for 2010. Thanks to Jay and MK.
