X-FACTOR

Too early to tell


OUTLOOK

Long way to go, lots of holes to fill, had many D1, D2, and NAIA signees who left who had big roles on the club. Have to define roles early, get guys in the best position we can to succeed.  Will see them a total of 8 times all fall at practice every other Friday so much to do to be successful in the spring.
