2020

The Zips were historically bad in 2019. Like Bad News Bears bad. Expectations for 2020? Couple of first downs. Maybe a field goal or two. Instead, the Zips took a major step forward. Were they competitive? Nope. Exceot, that is, for one glorious game, where they beat the hell out of Bowling Greem. Yeah, Bowling Green was in 2020 what Akron was in 2019. And while they spent the other 5 weeks being Akron, there was hope.

2021

The Zips return nearly everyone. So do a lot of teams, so don’t get too excited. Early trips to Ohio State and Auburn will be ugly.

If Things Go Well:

4-8

It turns out that there has been talent, and it starts to come together. The Zips beat Temple and Bryant, knock off Bowling Green again, and slip in an upset somewhere.

If Things Don’t:

1-11

It turns out they didn;t just need time, they just weren’t very good. The Zips will still find a win somewhere, even if the wheels fall off again.

Prediction:

2-10

The Zips will be competitive against the middle tier MAC teams, but aren’t likely to upset anyone. They should be better than the 2 really bad teams on the schedule.
