If this year isn't a huge jump for Texas State, I can't imagine they ever will be under the current guy. if his strategy was to truly play only underclassmen last year, he should have nearly 100% back and take a big leap forward.

A huge jump would be considered being competitive in games against top competition and competing and winning games against similar programs. Probably 4-8 or 5-7. The two years following are the put up or shut up years.

I wouldn't be surprised if our only win this year is the FCS game. Withers said this is year 1 and last year was year zero. He said that since he came in January, he wasn't able to fully recruit last year. Now that he did get a full year, we got the number one recruiting class. I think the team won't see improvement until 2018 and not get bowl eligible until 2019. TXST has been bad over the years but never this bad (in the time I've followed the team). Just trying to stay positive.

So we were in year zero for four straight years?

RE: Orlando Sentinel Rankings
Again, it's easy to see all the off-field crap swirling around and assume the team will be bad. But it's a poor assumption. We'll be bowling and better than #112.

Although we should get more credit since according to the article we started 2-5 and finished 9-4. That's amazing!

This ranking would still have the Vandals in a bowl game with 6-7 wins. I would argue this ranking to be just about right considering we have had FCS level recruiting for the last class. This team will be operating off of fumes to get to the end.

Go Vandals.

Not many things can make you depressed quicker than reading Idaho fan posts.
