Ignoring all possible changes to the setting of college football (conferences, paying players…).
In my opinion, we will be back to back pac12 champs at some point in the next 10 years. Our offensive recruiting is improving. I see us having a big time WR or two on our teams in the not too distant future as recruits see what Andy Ludwig can do with talented players. I see a continued emphasis on athletic tight ends.
We have already made it to the championship game 2 years in a row, and I don’t see any reason why we won’t do so again some time in the not too distant future, and I hope by then we will have developed the depth to win.
While the finish to last season was truly awful, it is clear that the program is on an upward trajectory. I am excited to see who the next players to step up are going to be. Nobody thought that Tyler and Zack would mean as much as they did to this team. Kuithe surprised everyone this year. Most fans thought LB would be a position of weakness after Bowen quit, and Lloyd turned out to be an absolute stud.
The defense will almost certainly regress from last year, but I’m confident that new players will step up and this coming season (whenever it comes) will be a lot of fun to watch.
Also, I believe that when Scalley takes over he will take our recruiting to greater heights. The next 10+ years (assuming college football exists in it’s current form) are going to be a lot of fun!
