1. BOWLING GREEN WIN TOTAL PREDICTION: WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
It’s the MAC, so it’s possible to go from zero to hero right away, and that’s where head coach Scot Loeffler and the new coaching staff kicks in. Loeffler – the former Boston College offensive coordinator – knows how to get a whole lot out of the talent he gets to deal with.
There’s talent and upside at the offensive skill spots, helped by a promising passer in Grant Loy, who should get more time to work behind a line that gets back just about everyone.
The defense might not be a brick wall, but if it can simply be anything better the brutally miserable, that should be enough to come up with an extra win or two.
Set The Regular Season Win Total At … 4
The Falcons should get by Morgan State to kick off the season, and they should be able to split the two early games against Louisiana Tech at home and with a road trip to Kent State.
Can the Falcons beat Central Michigan at home? How about Akron? It’ll still be a crawl-before-walk sort of a season, and there isn’t any 100% sure thing win outside of Morgan State – okay 99% – but the team will be more competitive.
