2020

If you draw up a diagram for how to build a non Power 5 program the right way, this is it. And it all culminated in 2020. Sadly, no one was there to see it.

2021

They’ll be there to see it in 2021. There are a number of teams people are talking about for that New Year’s day spot, but Ball State doesn’t seem to be one of them. They should be.

If Things Go Well

12-0

Don’t laugh. Don’t get excited, but don’t laugh. Penn State isn’t Penn State anymore. If you slow down Wyoming’s run game, you beat them, and this is a D that could. There are tough road games, but there isn’t a game on this schedule they coudnt reasonably win.

If They Don’t

7-5

2020 was a weird year. Some teams looked better than they were. If Ball State was one of them, it could obviously be a disappointing year.

Prediction

9-3

Undefeated is a reach; Wyoming, maybe, but not Penn State. The D is just too good to not at least find a spot in the conference title game.
