    With 100+ new faces in the program in the last 15 months, how will that translate to the product on the field? are we a .500 team this year? 8+ wins or 10+ wins? I believe we are certainly trending upwards, I think our schedule is quite favorable and I think we can be at 8-9 wins. With such a fast roster turnover, I would think the record would reflect their efforts accordingly.

    First Practice:

    Coach: "HEY! HEY! YOU! #45! YEAH! YOU! GET OVER HERE! WHAT'S YOUR NAME SON?"

    More competition, motivation and potential stars on the rise. But we have to realize they are Freshmen and it will take a couple of years to show real success with this class.

    To be fair, first practice last year they had 120ish new players. most of whom they hadn't met in recruiting.

    It certainly means we are young but it will pay big dividends in the next 2-3 years.

    What amazes me is how few Riley recruits are left after just 2 recruiting cycles

    To answer your question, I think we're above .500, somewhere in the 8-9 win range. We're still going to be extremely young at a lot of positions, but I expect improvement overall from last year. We lost 5 games by 6 points or less, one can't help but think some of the new 100+ new faces finds a way to step up and make an impact early. Exciting times ahead

    I'm hoping for at least 6-7 wins. It would show improvement, which helps recruiting, and gets us to a bowl game. Anything more would be outstanding, to me.

    7+ wins should be more than acceptable. Big step to be taken in 2020

    when you look at the schedule, i think 8 wins is pretty expected.

    I agree, I think it is a testament to how the previous staff recruited. I'm obviously a novice like most of us, but I believe the current staff sells the program at its entirety and not just a particular style on offense/defense or playing time. I could be wrong, but hopefully that leads to better retention over time.
