2020 Record: 7-3

The Mustangs were what they’ve been for a few years now; a dynamic offensive team that scores a lot, a decent defensive team, but a team that feeds on middle of the pack teams and bottom feeders, struggles to beat good teams, and usually blows a game of two they shouldn’t.
A new QB has to be plugged in, but there are a number of really good options. The receiving corps is among the best in non power 5, there are a herd of good RBs, and the entire O line is back. So 2021’s squad should match last year’s 40 point a game output. Most of the D is back, along with a spectacular transfer portal haul.
If Things Go Well
As good as the Mustangs could be in 2021, they aren’t quite ready to take down Cincinnati. Beyond that, they could win every game convincingly.
If They Don’t
QB play would have to be a disaster for things to go this badly, and the D would have to collapse.
There are a number of road hurdles for the Mustangs, but there’s just too much talent to not at least push that 10 win plateau.
