Third & Long: Preseason Rankings - Delaware encore in store ?

By Tony Moss, The Sports Network

 

The official Sports Network I-AA Top 25 and I- AA-Mid-Major preseason polls, which are voted on by a panel of sports information directors and media throughout the country, will be revealed in August:

 

1. Delaware (15-1) - Blue Hens will seek national championship repeat, with an untested backfield the only major question mark in that quest.

 

17. Lehigh (8-3) - Thirteen starters, including All-American tight end Adam Bergen, are back for a team that deserved to make the playoffs in 2003.

 

38. Fordham (9-3) - Rams should be solid in the first year of the Ed Foley era, but graduation of QB Kevin Eakin, RB Kirwin Watson, and WR Javarus Dudley will be too much to overcome.

 

63. Hofstra (2-10) - What happened to Hofstra? Of A-10 teams, only Rhode Island has more losses (17) than the Pride’s 16 of the past two seasons, and drastic improvement in ’04 would be a surprise.

 

82. Brown (5-5) - Bears welcome back the nation’s leading rusher in Nick Hartigan, but the absence of wideout Lonnie Hill (academics) is a big hurt.

 

Mid-Major: 1. Duquesne (8-3) 2. Albany (7-4) 3. Dayton (9-2) 4. San Diego (8-2) 5. Monmouth (10-2) 6. Valparaiso (8-4) 7. Morehead State (8-3) 8. Drake (6-6) 9. Sacred Heart (6-5) 10. Stony Brook (6-4) 11. Jacksonville (5-6) 12. Iona (6-5) 13. Robert Morris (6-4) 14. Wagner (6-5) 15. Davidson (3-8) 16. Central Connecticut State (3-8) 17. Marist (4-6) 18. Austin Peay (4-7) 19. Butler (2-9) 20. La Salle (3-8) 21. Saint Peter’s (2-8) 22. St. Francis (PA) (1-9).

7-4 looks right. I can see Albany losing all non conference games and winning all the conference games. I think an out of conference win wiuld be great, but it would be a bonus.

 

Interesting that they took the non conference schedule into consideration as Monmouth is projected to be 10-2. Looks like they have Monmouth playing Duquesne in the ECAC bowl with Duquesne winning (Monmouth only has 11 games on their schedule and Duquesne only has 10)
