Bottom of the middle third still doesn’t get me excited.
It will be tough to win immediately. We don’t get extra practice time because we have a new offensive and defensive scheme. We get the same amount of practice as every other team.
If we don’t win immediately, and our conference mates do, we will be back at the bottom scouring D2’s for a potential player.
I have only been a season ticket holder since Dodge’s first year. I’ve seen a lot of bad ball and some decent ball.
This coaching staff has to win now. This will be a difficult challenge.
It's not really a fair comparison. For instance, Blake Fann has no rating. If you saw his video and knew that he was a first team all-state in Class 6-A you'd be certain that he had a three-star rating but 247 didn't evaluate him at all. Furthermore, if they did evaluate him now I think that it's highly doubtful that they would go back and adjust the average or the total. There may be others that haven't been evaluated but if they're non-scholarship at this signing they also won't be included. This is another unusual year due to expanded rosters due to covid. We had fewer scholarships due to a small graduating and a rather small number hitting the transfer portal.
