Not sure why everyone is beating up this post...5-2 is a real possibility

We have some reasons to be optimistic at key positions:
1. Benkert returns at QB and is looking very good this Spring
2. The OL will be bolstered with talented transfers and greater depth who should help solidify things for the offense over the course of the season
3. We return some significant playmakers at S, DE, LB and return a few veterans we were missing most of last year.
4. The schemes will be largely the same...continuity is a good thing helping players adapt more quickly so they can focus on other details
5. Reports are that many players look to be in great shape and the weightlifting programs are really paying off
6. We should have some healthy kicker options ready to go at the start of the season without having to try out some random soccer players

The schedule is relatively weak the first 7 weeks of the season. I understand that we struggled last year, but if we can start off strong against W&M and then build momentum against Indiana and UCONN, we will surprise a few teams along the way before we hit the meat of our schedule.
