Offense: You could call the Herd's offense innovative... if this was 1975. Run middle, run left, run right, repeat. Every now and then, play action. But with the returning talent, Marshall needs to open it up to be more than an annual .500 minor bowl team.
Defense: The D is as basic and simple as the O, but on the side of the ball where you can win with execution as much as scheme, it works better. With the incoming JUCO talent, this will be one of the better units in the conference.
Overall: Marshall will be boring, but they will win.
Projected 2020 Record: 8-4
