Marshall Thundering Herd Season Prediction, What Will Happen

2021 Marshall was a ten-win team disguised with a 7-6 record.

There was too much talent, too many close losses, and too many frustrating moments in losses that should’ve gone the other way. Oh sure, Marshall cleaned up the mess against the mediocre teams on the slate, but it didn’t exactly extend itself against the big guys.

If Old Dominion is your most impressive win, the season didn’t go as planned.

But the talent is there, the starting 22 can hang with or beat anyone in the Sun Belt, and this should be a much more productive season as long as the turnovers stop, the scoring consistency is there, and if the defense can be just a little bit stronger.

Set The Marshall Thundering Herd Regular Season Win Total At … 8

Norfolk State, Gardner-Webb, at Bowling Green. Those are three almost certain wins.

At Notre Dame. That’s an almost certain loss.

Everything else is a toss-up, but the Sun Belt did Marshall a MASSIVE solid by putting the games against the league’s best teams – Louisiana, Appalachian State, Georgia State, Coastal Carolina – in Huntington.

The Herd should win at least two of those, more likely three, but watch out for funky games at James Madison, Old Dominion, and against a Troy team that’s going to be sneaky-strong.
