    In 2012, Toledo dropped from #9 Total Offense and #8 Scoring to #32 and #44. It was largely due to losing 3-3yr starters on the OL(2 OT's and 1 OG). This year Rockets lost only a starting OT.

    Well it might also have to do with how weak your schedule was in 2011 compared to 2012 as it compares to relative defenses you faced, but that might just be a little too much nuance.

    Do you expect to field a good team this year?

    How is this trolling, I mean I don't think anyone believes we'll actually lose, most don't think it will be 1 TD game, but saying Toledo is a decent mid-major and until we see otherwise it seems unlikely Boom will drop 30+ on them seems prudent.

    Again, check out the teams that dropped 30+ on Toledo last year and then we'll talk.

    By "they" you mean the 7 different fans (from a student body of over 20,000) who posted in that thread? :no:

    Correct - those are the ones I directed my comments about.

    I suppose a separate discussion could be made of why there aren't more persons participating in that thread.

    Also, I didn't check if there were other threads with a different number posting than this one.

    Or if there are other Toledo football forums with a different level of participation.

    Easy to jump to conclusions......but that's why this is a discussion forum...alas. :dog:

    A 6'1" DE. Now we are concerned. That guy will be running under the legs of our OTs all day.

    Can you imagine being a true Freshman lining up against a power running team in the Swamp at noon in August? I am going to keep my eye on this match up. Wait till he sees Joyer coming through the line.

    Yeah this is just one of those positions you do not want a true freshman starting.

    But he is 6'1".... so he makes up for his youth with his undersized frame.

    Short of him being the next Clowney, that would be a huge red flag.
