Appalachian State Mountaineers Season Prediction, What Will Happen

It’s going to be a more fun season because of all the good games on the slate, but Appalachian State might not have quite the same sort of results.

Start with the positive – there’s no Louisiana. The mega-thorn in the program’s side isn’t there to deal with, and there are several winnable games to make a bowl game a forgone conclusion. Of course, the program is looking for more than that now.

Here’s the problem. Even though there are layups against Robert Morris and The Citadel, the season opens against North Carolina – at least it’s a home game – and at Texas A&M. Just as bad in an improved Sun Belt are the road games at Coastal Carolina and Marshall in back-to-back weeks, and closing at Georgia Southern might be tougher than it seems.

Set The Appalachian State Mountaineers Regular Season Win Total At … 8.5

There are too many landmines to expect another ten-win season – at Troy and Georgia State aren’t going to be layups – but …

It could certainly happen. The offense will be terrific, and if the defense can replace all the star power in a hurry, there’s a chance the Mountaineers can rip through most of the schedule and come up with a key road win here or there to be right in the Sun Belt title mix.
