2017 Marshall Thundering Herd Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The Thundering Herd do what they didn’t in 2016 and come up with a great September. They beat a good Miami University team to start, and roll by Kent State and stun Cincinnati on the way to a 3-1 start. They get by Charlotte on the road and Old Dominion at home, and then it’s on.

There will be a loss in the three key games against Middle Tennessee, WKU and Southern Miss, but the Hilltoppers and Golden Eagles have to come to Huntington. With no problems against Florida Atlantic or UTSA on the road, or FIU at home, it’s a 9-3 regular season – at worst.

2017 Marshall Thundering Herd Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

A loss to Miami University to open the season puts the pressure on, and a blowout loss to NC State the following week makes things worse. A loss at Cincinnati and a follow-up clunker to Charlotte turns the Doc Holliday hot seat to flaming, and the loss to Old Dominion seals it. There’s a win over FIU, and an upset on the road to get to four wins, but that won’t be enough to save Holliday – if he’s still around.
