1. ARMY WIN TOTAL PREDICTION: WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
The machine is going to keep on rolling.
It might not be the dominant all-around force of a team that last year’s was, but that doesn’t mean the offense won’t keep ripping through the mediocre defenses on the slate, and it doesn’t mean the D can’t quickly fill in the open spots and rock again.
The developed depth isn’t quite there at quarterback, the loss of some key fullbacks will matter, and there are just enough departures on the defensive front seven to be a problem. But head coach Jeff Monken has everything working, and he has the systems in place to do it all again.
Set The Regular Season Win Total At … 10
There isn’t a team on the schedule that Army can’t beat, and that includes Michigan. However, figure in a road loss in Ann Arbor, and factor in two misfires at some point.
But that’s a total guess.
If the 2019 team is the 2018 version, it’s 12-1 and rips through the slate with machine-like efficiency. Tulane is going to be dangerous, going to Air Force and Hawaii are going to be a potential problem, and Navy should be vastly improved.
Now take a step back for a second … a ten-win season at Army would be a big disappointment?
That’s where we’re at now under Monken. It’s a fun, ruthlessly efficient team.
