Being optimistic, I went 7-8. We went from one win in 2013 to 7 in 2014. With another year of caa type recruiting under his belt; I believe Gattuso has this team already around the corner. I know the schedule may be tougher than last year; but unlike some, I do not think we are still 2-3 years away. We should at least match last years win total. Beside the 7 wins in 2014, there were @ least 2-3 more games that we could have won. And now we have more caa type talent, including 3 qb's that beat out the qb that was suppose to make Fiacchi look like a water boy {not MY assessment}.

I think we are most undersized on the D-Line. Both coach and the UB forum folks make the point that their O-Line is the 14th largest in FBS and outweighs ours by about

50 LBs per man. Quickness and technique will only get you so far, especially with inferior depth. You often see FCS schools stick with an FBS school until late in the 2nd

half when they get worn down. Our O-Line has decent size. The LBs are a tad small. The D-Backs are getting better. To be honest I have been quite surprised that a former

D-Lineman Head Coach has not bagged one or two bigger interior linemen over 2 signing classes. Maybe he just prefers smaller and more athletic to bigger and less athletic.
