    High Espectations For These FCS Teams

    Please note that this is NOT a team ranking, but a confidence listing as explained in the preface.

    I'm not sure I buy Lehigh at 20 in a confidence ranking. Their defense has been dreadful for the last 5 seasons. If they're at #20 that just shows how weak the PL figures to be again this year. Colgate would seem to be the "safer bet". Although they've struggled to find consistency in recent years.

    It would not shock me if the PL playoff rep has a losing record again. Colgate has a brutal OOC schedule and Lehigh's is no picnic either.

    The Idaho offense will be suspect. Our D will be some of the best in the FCS. Mark it down.

    Glad you can recognize that proud fact. BTW, this writer must not have read the JSU Board(especially the topic 'Concerns') or he wouldn't have even put JSU in the 'Confidence' rankings.

    Certainly possible scenarios for both Colgate and Lehigh. Raiders have almost entire depth chart returning. Reagardless of their tough OOC, agree they must be the odds on favorite going into the season.
    Lehigh has to rebuild the offensive line and replace their best ever duo of WRs.Admittedly there is a lot of experienced players to move up in both areas.
    Over the last 5 years I have oft said that D could not get any worse. I am 0-5 on that prediction. But this time I really mean it .

    I guess he hasn’t.

    I could see us anywhere from 8-3 and missing the cut to challenging for another trip to Frisco. Who knows how badly we’ll disappoint this year.

    Supposedly our new QB knows how to throw the ball to other players actually on our team but who knows. Lots and lots of questions for JSU this year.

    Hype on our board is slowly coming back but I’ll believe the hype when we win a real game.

    Hard to believe Nova isnít mentioned before Delaware. Cats have their top offensive players returning from injury. QB, RB, TE, WR all back & all were starters. Throw in preseason CAA DPOY coming back on defense.

    Its hard to fathom with what is returning for Nova that Delaware has the edge.

    Re: High Espectations For These FCS Teams

    There are some high expectations surrounding Portland State this year, after going through the worst year in the history of the program. Last year was supposed to be building on the previous year so going winless was somewhat of a shock. Barnum did get a vote of "confidence" from the AD, but he will need to get some wins this year to keep off the hot seat. Unlike most teams mentioned, the Viks aren't looking for a conference championship this year, but if we can't get to at least .500 in conference, it may get ugly. This will be year 3 since going to the playoffs so typically this is the year to see results from that recruiting class.
