Year 9 and we're still getting picked bottom of the league year in year out with like one outlier. Sigh. 

Win games, win respect .... crunch time for Greg .... and Mark .... considering the extension given

It's do or die for the staff. We have--with consideration given to the fact that it is still the CAA, probably the third best league in FCS--a weak conference schedule.  Anything less than 6-5  or 7-4 overall is no bueno, in my book, with this schedule.  

Last year was last year.  Time to put it all together.

Agreed 100%.I like our chances of having a decent to a good year if things break our way. The schedule is light after we survive Baylor and no one is expecting anything from us.  IMHO Delaware and Villanova are pretty good and they and barley beat us last year. This new RB from Pitt is the real deal. We just need the OL to block. Gotta win the close games this year

Agree completely .... 7 - 4 record or the cries for a firing or two will be deafening ...

Edited to add context:

Interesting that they announced this after media day. I guess they figured they didn't want to take away any excitement from this coming season and didn't want any reporters focusing on this change. Either way, a quick google search will show how they are doing with recruitment. Getting lots of kids that would normally go FBS and with that they have the top ranked FCS recruiting class this year. They will probably contend in the CAA on day 1 next season.

Not a shock, the move was planned.  THis belongs in the realignment thread. 

You are probably right, but I put it in the media day thread as I was supposed to add a comment to the links about how it is interesting that this move happened after media day, then point out the articles about how great their recruiting is and how they might be a CAA powerhouse right away - but I hit submit reply before I added the comments.

Fair point  And they will be a powerhouse right away: THEY CHEAT!!!

The literally were put on probation for five years due to Binging around with transfers. (back in 2016).  They just came off of the probation. We aren't talking one-offs...but like 30+ shady moves.

UAlbany football rolled out 'red carpet' to get Tyler Pastula

Punter transfer from Delaware also had a trip to Oregon.

First full-pad scrimmage was yesterday. Two of the four QB candidates are ahead of the others, but GG didn't name them. He plans to play two or three of them against Baylor.
