The Pirates took a step back in 2020. They were expected to be a middle of the pack AAC team but spent much of the 2020 season being kicked around. Ending the season with a surprise dismantling of SMU could provide some momentum heading into 2021.
Holton Ahlers is back again along with his entire offensive line and most of his skilled players. The defence, which was awful in 2020 will be the key to the Pirates success this year.
If Things Go Well:
The schedule is brutal. That D will need to be exponentially better for the Pirates to even think post season.
If They Don’t
If the breaks completely fall off on the defensive side it could be a long year for the Pirates. Other than Charleston Southern there isn’t another game on the schedule that you can call a guaranteed win.
Starting the season owing 3 is not going to help this team’s confidence. It’s hard to imagine the defence being improved enough to keep up with most of the offences in the league.
