Five Questions for the AAC Entering Spring Practice

(Patrick) #1

Which coach has the most to prove in 2018?
It depends on who you ask. Some will argue that Scottie Montgomery (ECU), Randy Edsall (UConn) and Philip Montgomery (Tulsa) have a lot of work to do, and could be/are on the hot seat. ECU’s 6-18 under Montgomery, Edsall’s second round with the Huskies started with a 3-9 campaign that featured a loss on a missed extra point, and Tulsa followed a 10 win season with 10 losses. Others would argue Houston’s Major Applewhite. While his first season resulted in a bowl appearance, there are some who believe that he underachieved in his first season on and off the field.

"As a whole, this conference was arguably the worst in the nation at defense. The AAC had five of the ten worst teams in terms of total defense, and only had two teams in the top 50 in scoring defense (Houston was 39th and USF was 37th). "

Bad for the AAC but good for UH once KB gets it going.
