1. KENT STATE WIN TOTAL PREDICTION: WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN
It’s going to take baby steps for the Golden Flashes to start moving forward. There’s enough experience to start doing more offensively, but it all falls flat if the line doesn’t start blocking a whole lot better.
Woody Barrett is a veteran quarterback who knows what he’s doing, and he’s welcoming back his top receivers to keep dinking and dunking – but the downfield passes have to come.
For this to work, the little things have to be done right. All of the penalties have to slow down – committing close to nine per game last season – hitting more third down passes, doing more with the abysmal punting game, doing anything to keep defenses out of the backfield …
And just start scoring.
There are no expectations at one of the roughest places in college football to win, so for second-year head man Sean Lewis, it’s about getting just a wee bit better.
Set The Regular Season Win Total At … 4
The Golden Flashes should be able to take out Kennesaw to start the season, and they get winnable games against Bowling Green and Ball State at home. Four of the ten losses last year were by eight points or fewer. The team was a bit more competitive, but now it has to be consistent.
It’ll get to four wins, but anything more will require a big upset or three and for the FlashFast system to kick in all at once.
