2020

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.

2021

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

11-1

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

6-6

QB play would have to be a disaster for things to go this badly, and the D would have to collapse.

Prediction

10-2

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.
