1. College Football News Preview 2020: Toledo Rockets Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
You know you have a decent program going when your team stinks on defense, can’t stop the run, can’t seem to throw with any consistency, and have one of your worst years in several areas in a long, long time on the was to dropping five of the last seven games, and you still finish 6-6.
Head coach Jason Candle is just 40 and he’s got 34 wins under his belt in four years with a MAC title and no losing campaigns, but this is when it all has to kick back in.
He didn’t get that Matt Campbell bump to a bigger gig after going 11-3 in 2017, and the team has been on a downward trend over the last three seasons, but consider last season a step back to take a positive leap forward.
The team went really, really young in several areas, and now it’s loaded with veterans on both sides of the ball. The fundamentals of the team are strong, and it might be just one good quarterbacking season away from being among the elite of the MAC elite again.
The schedule is up in the air, but considering last year’s team found a way to get to six wins, this year’s version – it’s going to be far better – shouldn’t have a problem getting back to the winning ways and a bowl game.
