I hope that you are right but the Tigers have a big hill to climb to become a very good team, let alone a good team, by the time the IL season begins. There is a distinct possibility that they will be somewhere around a 4-11 team when IL play starts based on their remaining non-conference games.

Coaching staff has much work to do with not that much time to do it. Freshmen players are challenging especially when it comes to protecting the ball. I do agree that Much gives some hope especially on the offensive end.

The major plus for the Tigers is the caliber of play by other teams which has been below average to poor. There does not to be a high performing team like Weisz/Cook, Sears/Mason or Saunders/Chambers. Harvard may well be the best but their play to date has been very unimpressive.

With the IL Tournament, excluding Dartmouth, you might have 7 teams fighting for four berths. If you get in, no team appears to be insurmountable for the IL tournament. The optimism expressed by fans of other teams may be somewhat a function of the overall poor quality of play by other teams vs. the performance of their own team plus the IL tournament. Time will tell.
