Football 2018:: Looking ahead...

Postby Tom Nolette » Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:49 am

UMaine must prepare better, recruit for new offensive line, coach says
'This year is on me,' Joe Harasymiak said. 'It falls on my shoulders. I've got to get better with the staff and the players.'


...Maine’s defense should be strong next year. Seven players who started or received significant playing time in Saturday’s finale will return. Maine led the CAA and was fourth in the nation in third-down defense (allowing 27.4 percent) and was 36th in the nation in total defense, allowing 335.1 yards per game.

The biggest concern will be the offensive line, which had four seniors, all starters in the finale. Center Chris Mulvey, a redshirt freshman, and junior tackle Cody Levy will return. Young linemen such as Archie Callahan, Liam Dobson and Samuel Cooper are primed to step in.

Harasymiak said Maine’s recruiting will focus on offensive linemen. “We have some work to do there,” he said. “That’s the most important area to us.”

Maine has 18 scholarships to offer, according to Harasymiak. He and his staff will hit the road next right after Thanksgiving to focus on their top recruits, including those in Maine.

The NCAA has an early signing period this year for football from Dec. 20-22. Harasymiak said it’s unlikely the Black Bears will sign many players that week, but instead will get a good idea what recruits are left for February’s signing period.

Great article by Mike Lowe which summarizes what we have been saying about next year. Defense should be strong as heck, good skill players but OL has question marks. Love it that Coach H took responsibility for failures and the players already hitting the weight room. The loss to SBU could be used as a huge motivator for next year. ;)
This has to be the year we start off with a win against UNH. :D

Nick Charlton‏ @Coach_Charlton

Everyone's hype after @BlackBearsFB + @LiamCoen had the best statistical year on offense since joining the CAA. @Cferg_17 and @DrewBQB11 think that's a bet. @XoomXI you got any eligibility left?
