Enough is enough, Marshall.
This team should’ve been good enough to be right in the mix for the Conference USA championship, but it’s been flat awful.
It was cute for a while with a blowout loss to Akron, and with more-than-okay losses to Louisville and Pitt. But to drop a 38-21 decision to North Texas, that’s a problem.
What’s wrong? The defense is next-level awful giving up 252 rushing yards in each of the last two games after getting lit up by Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals.
And the secondary has been worse.
Fortunately for the Herd, Florida Atlantic is almost as bad. At least the Thundering Herd have the offense rolling, but the Owls are sputtering in all phases offensively to go along with a defense that’s getting ripped apart by everyone’s ground game.
So what’s going right for the Thundering Herd?
The defense – as bad as it’s been – lived in the backfield against North Texas, and it should crank up the pressure and hang behind the FAU line all game long.
That, along with decent balance from the Herd offense will finally start to right the ship.
Finally, Marshall will look like Marshall again.
