RE: Spring 2021 Football Season Thread
I feel like the RMU game announcement belongs here instead of the other thread where it is being discussed. While I am not excited about the opponent, I will say RMU should be improved from 2018. 2018 was Coach Clark’s first season at RMU. In his second season, RMU went 6-1 in conference. The school is also moving up to the Big South next year so recruiting should have received a boost in 2020 from the recruits RMU landed as a NEC school.

The game won’t likely be close but I feel like JMU will face a better RMU team in Coach Clark’s third season. I also don’t feel JMU is as good this year as they have been the last four seasons. It is possible we don’t make the playoffs this year with only 16 teams participating.

In this one off season coming up - I can see why you'd be careful about booking too strong an OOC game. If JMU loses more than one game, it's "possible" they don't make the playoffs. Lose three, and I think they don't make the playoffs.

Normal seasons, that is not an issue these day with all the teams that make the playoffs.

While I may agree with you we are thin in some proven talent in some positions I disagree we're going to take a step back from the last four seasons. I expect this team to still be able to make a run to the NC game. We have the best backfield we've ever had, a solid line, good young receivers and most of our underclassmen are much more highly touted (and thus able to contribute sooner) than those who they're replacing. I think we should easily be in the Natty contention both in the spring and next fall. If anything NDSU is looking more vulnerable for us to take it from them.
