They’re doing well and beating teams they should beat…which is a lot more than what’s happened the past few years. I was looking at some rankings and they’ve played one of the weakest schedules in the NCAA so far and they were ranked around #130 prior to last weekend.

I’m hoping for a .500 or better season in conference. If they do that, they’ve got some good recruits coming in next year that should help push them even higher.
