2020 Marshall Thundering Herd Football Preview

2020 Record: 8-5 (6-2)

2019 Scoring Offense: 25.8
2019 Scoring Defense: 25.0

2019 Offensive Rank: 88
2019 Defensive Rank: 47

Returning Offensive Production:  78%
Returning Defensive Production: 63%

2020 Recruiting Rank:  96

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
