It does not matter in any significant way and should be considered as nothing more than throwing darts blind-folded. It is, however, notable how lowly we are ranked as a conference. Above MAC and SunBelt but below everyone else (which is neither a secret nor a news)

Charlotte's probably about right. I'm guessing the number of starters kept up from being 130.

FIU is coming off an 8-5 season, but is ranked 120th. Okay.

Yeah I’m surprised by this as well. FIU has recruited well and are clearly under better coaching with the new staff. Do you guys lose Alex McGough? Maybe that’s part of the reasoning?

Has to do with what they're ranking. Our recruiting Class was #1 in C-USA and #5 G5 (with two of the three 4*'s signed) yet is ranked mid-pack in the conference. Returning Production is looking at loss of starting QB, top receiver and rusher though does not take into consideration 4* red-shirt Soph. transfer from BGSU, our highly regarded returning receivers and our depth at running back. It also weights performance over the last five years, giving no consideration to the new coaching staff or the most recent season.

All in all, this ranking leaves much to be desired. May generally be a good over all index, but has some huge holes in it.

James Morgon has not lived up to his ranking at all.

His completion percentage was under.50 percent last year in 7 games.

FIU lost a lot of talent and I believe will be a year away from competing for the conference.

I don't agree with FIU's low ranking but I can see why they ranked them there, lots of unknowns as far as production for the coming year. Possible to take a step back this year, just to in turn explode the next year........

My only question is whether he's as strong a QB as Alex McGough in Butch's system. My guess is that he'll be as least as good. As for the rest of the offense, we lost 4 out of 15 on the OL, 1 out of 11 in the receiving corp, 1 of 6 TE's and 1 of 9 at the running back position. It all goes on the QB and I feel confident having a graduate RS-Jr. coming in to run things.

We know the d-line will be stout losing 1 out of 14 and having two 4* JUCO's coming in at the DT position; we lost 4 of 13 LB's and 4 of 19 DB's on a team that finished 8-5.

This team was young and struggled through some early games but I'm looking at a reload this year and an even stronger run.

Can't wait for the Spring game.
