2 American teams on the list- ECU & UConn. Also of interest, UTSA and Frank Wilson

Sorry Pete, it’s a slideshow

Thanks for the warning, I'll pass for that reason.

If this list was made at the end of the year I think East Carolina won't be on it. I think they made a big upgrade at head coach.

I agree LG and also think Tulsa might take their spot

I think more of a Tulsa than that. They do need some early wins because it’s such an obvious do or die year for Montgomery.

What they said about ECU:
Quote:
Mike Houston comes in to try to patch up an offense that really struggled to put points on the board. The team needs to identify its quarterback (Holton Ahlers should get the first crack at it) and find someone who can carry the rushing load. (Ahlers was the Pirates' leading rusher last year.) The defense has some promise, but the secondary is replacing three starters. The unit struggled to create turnovers and to stop offenses on third downs last season. ECU has a favorable schedule, so it could see a better looking season than most on this list. It is clearly a clean slate for Houston to turn this program around to the difference maker it used to be.

I think based on their QB's talent alone, ECU is not bottom 25 in the country
