They demolished Edwin Something Or Other last weekend. Were a 5-7 loss team last year.

That’s all.

Not a top 10 team, maybe 20-25, but a new coach can make an immediate impact for a FCS school.

I watched a little of their game and they looked pretty good. It was against an NAIA team so I took it with a grain of salt but I liked what I saw.

:suspicious: Sure, but that impact can also be a negative one.

JMU too high at #2.
The only thing I have high confidence in is the JMU OL and loaded backfield. While did outgain Morehead 556-98, even after pulling all starters by late 3rd qtr, and while was 27 degrees & a breeze, and while the JMU new starting QB was 10-14, 147, 1 TD/0 INT, 3 of his incompletion were way off, including both longballs. He's not as good as Bryan Schor and Ben Dinucci, JMU's last 2 starting QBs who took JMU to Frisco 3x in 4 yrs..

Like I said in the Spring thread, JMU defense only returning 1 starter (a pre season AA DT) in the front 7, after losing 4 seniors + 2 transferred to UVA. Then last fall both would be starting DEs went down to knee injury, out for the winter/spring season. Then vs Morehead St lost two 2-deep LBs to injury, one for 4-6 weeks, one for the rest of the winter/spring season. For the front 7, outside the one pre season AA (now at DE, 2 sacks vs Morehead), the 2 deep is a a total mix of returning 2 and 3 deepers, redshirts from in 2019, true Fr, and transfers...So despite holding Morehead to -6 yds rushing, the jury is still very much out on the JMU front 7 in my armchair QB opinion.
