It's time... preseason is upon us!  The first game is one month away.

Tough OCC games vs. W&M, Delaware, Princeton, Wagner, and Harvard.

Bucknell is a rising force.  Fordham looks reloaded.

We have a solid secondary, but questions remain at OL.  Can they finally get it done early and often?

Edit:  that's supposed to be 3-8!  3rd-10... we see that a lot around here  Laughing

If we win one we shouldn't (Princeton) and lose one we shouldn't (Bucknell or Colgate) I'll go with 6-5 this season.  

The five losses:

W&M
Delaware
Fordham
Harvard
Bucknell/Colgate

The six wins:

Princeton
Wagner
Georgetown
Holy Cross
Bucknell/Colgate
Lehigh

I was going to predict 10-1 but I'll go with 11-0 maybe I'm being overly optimistic  Laughing

P4L, no reaction to LU receiving 8 votes in FCS coaches poll?  Must have seen something in the Bronx.  Smile

What he said.

Yes, P4L, even with a predicted win over the New Jersey Tabbies.  And Wagner will not be a walk over.

Best possible is 8-3.  Worst nightmare is 3-8.

And Delaware didn't get any votes.  Hmm . . . Confused


EDIT:  Massey has Lehigh at 81st in FCS, below every team on its schedule except CConn and Georgetown . . .

http://www.masseyratings.com/rate.php?s=cf2015&sub=11605

. . . and next-to-last in the PL.

http://www.masseyratings.com/team.php?t=13333&s=279541

Pards are second in Massey's PL preseason rankings, going 6-5 but losing to Wagner.

Delaware will be very young, and will have a new QB. They didn't get any new transfer help at QB. They've started a transfer QB for the past 13 seasons.

I stand corrected in my above post.  Massey has the Filthy Fountain of Football Failure ranked higher than Penn as well.

But no matter . . . they won't beat Penn.  Not a chance.  Only we can beat Penn.

Hens fans are generally miserable right now, questioning the wisdom of the transfer strategy, of their place in the hierarchy and just about everything.

So you're saying that the Pards have an outside chance of losing to Delaware by less than 30?

According to Massey, our greatest chance of winning is vs. Princeton. That's either a very bad sign....or maybe a very good sign. (Obviously it's one or the other!)

This story didn't run in the paper with The Morning Call's football camp preview, but it is on the website.

Somewhere between 4-7 and 6-5.

The D will be very solid, but I fear the offense (especially the line) will continue to struggle.  We've had 5 years of average to below average line play.  Kids have come and gone, some started for 3 or 4 years and improved a great deal and made all league teams, but the line as a whole was still average.  

If Drew Reed can revert back to his 2013 form and play nearly perfect games we will be better than 6-5, but we can't count on that.
