I've been thinking along these lines but trying to convince myself it isn't as bad as you state. I'm concerned about the "jam the ball" type bad play calling, will see; if mediocre means 6th or 7th best in 12 team league I'll take that; same with OL except counting on top 1/3rd for no other reason than guys should be (4 of 5 starters) more experienced together, stronger and hard to block for last years team with no vertical passing; can't argue about WR/TE's all being young/inexperienced but counting on CAA quality as a not likely worse case; QB's now there is where some good fortune needs to occur being one or several of the guys are actually ok and several have at least shown something at competitive high school or lower college level and even I can pass better than Pindell.Yeah, you don’t really need to coach in the AAC to sniff this one out.
They are going to jam the ball into the line with two mediocre backs and a middling offensive line. The tight end and receivers aren’t even CAA quality. They might have the worst quarterbacks assembled in FBS.
The roster is a barren wasteland and they will hope to beat Wagner, UMass and catch someone sleeping to go 3-9. They are going to get dismantled by every team with a pulse.
Not sure what qualifies as having a pulse but of 11 FBS opponents Massey has 3 at #100 or higher, 4 at 79 to 99 and 3 in the 60's; only UCF is at 20. When your 2nd highest rated opponent is Indiana there has got to be some pre season koolaide drinking.
