    Last year was good, this year should be better.

    Overall, the Sun Belt has improved with seemingly every team loaded with experience, good defenses, and emerging offenses. Even so, the defending Sun Belt champion (fine, co-Sun Belt champions, but Troy beat Middle Tennessee) will be the heavy favorite to not just repeat, but be far better.

    12/22 New Orleans Bowl
    Rice W 41-17

    The Trojans started off 1-4 taking their non-conference beatings in September, and then they had two weeks off, started the Sun Belt season, and found a way to win every close game except for home 33-26 battle with Arkansas State. One great drive to beat Middle Tennessee, an easy win over a depleted FIU, and a jaw-dropping 41-17 shocker over Rice in the New Orleans Bowl set the tone for the off-season, and has set expectations sky-high.

    The offense begins and ends with Omar Haugabook, the JUCO transfer quarterback who immediately transformed the Troy attack from one of the worst in the country to just plain mediocre. He’s back along with all his top receiving weapons and all the running backs. However, four starters on the offensive line are gone meaning Haugabook will have to be even sharper.

    Troy originally made a name for itself on defense, and things dropped off considerably finishing seventh in the eight team league in total defense, which made last year’s run to the title all the more stunning. Eight starters are back and should be better, even though things weren’t all that bad before.

    The Trojans weren’t great at any one thing outside of getting into the backfield, but they weren’t glaringly bad in any one spot, either. With a tremendous recruiting to add more depth, a fantastic group of returning starters, and Haugabook, this is the class of the Sun Belt. Now there’s no room for anything less than another title.

    What to watch on offense … Will Haugabook get time? The offensive line didn’t do a great job at protecting the passer last year, and that was a veteran front five struggling against the lousy Sun Belt pass rushes. While Haugabook is mobile, tough, and great at making plays on the move, he can’t afford to get knocked out. The new young line with only one returning starter has to keep the star upright.

    What to watch on defense … The defensive front seven should buy real estate in opposing backfields. Kenny Mainor is an undersized, but unstoppable end who should be the Sun Belt’s best pass rusher. The rest of the Trojans are also able to make plays behind the line with an aggressive style that dictates the action. Now all the big plays have to result in more takeaways. Also watch out for the coaching staff to do everything possible to get all its great defensive backs on the field at the same time. There’s too much talent in the defensive backfield.

    The team will be far better if … it hangs on to the ball. The offense wasn’t nearly as productive as it could’ve been with drive after drive halted by turnovers. Haugabook got better at ball security over the second half of the season, but there was still a consistent stream of turnovers. Troy didn’t go a game without a turnover. Cut the mistakes down just a little bit, and the points will follow.

    The Schedule: The opening three non-conference games are certainly interesting going to Arkansas and Florida and hosting Oklahoma State, and then it’s on … at UL Lafayette. While the late season battle with Middle Tennessee will likely be the Sun Belt game of the year, the Trojans can set the tone with a win over the Ragin’ Cajuns. A date at Arkansas State will also make or break Sun Belt title hopes, but the rest of the top conference games are at home.

    Best Offensive Player: Senior QB Omar Haugabook. While he earned Sun Belt Player of the Year honors, he threw too many interceptions and didn’t start to turn things up a few notches until the end of the year. He can do it all with good rushing skills and a nice arm, and now he should be even better after a year of experience

    Best Defensive Player: Senior CB Leodis McKelvin. Take your pick among great Trojan defenders for the honor of being the best with DE Kenny Mainor, linebackers Boris Lee and Marcus Richardson, and safeties Sherrod Martin and Tavares Williams all likely to earn All-Sun Belt honors. Heck, even former Florida State defensive lineman Chris Bradwell might be an all-star. McKelvin is a rarity; a shut-down corner who can tackle. .

    2007 Troy Preview - Offense

    What you need to know: Spread it out with four wide receivers, let Sun Belt Player of the Year Omar Haugabook throw to the open guy, hope it all works. This isn't an explosive attack, and it won't be for a while with a mixed bag of talents on the front line trying to fit the puzzle. The running backs are fine with the return of Sean Dawkins helping out Kenny Cattouse, and Gary Banks and Mykeal Terry lead an inexperienced receiving corps that'll be fine. But it's all up to Haugabook. He's the difference between a second straight Sun Belt title and a losing season.

    Returning Leaders
    Passing: Omar Haugabook
    241-393, 2,401 yds, 21 TD, 17 INT
    Rushing: Kenny Cattouse
    168 carries, 810 yds, 4 TD
    Receiving: Gary Banks
    68 catches, 603 yds, 8 TD

    Star of the offense: Senior QB Omar Haugabook
    Player that has to step up and become a star: Junior OT/OG Chris Jamison
    Unsung star on the rise: Sophomore WR Cornelius Williams
    Best pro prospect: Junior WR Gary Banks
    Top three all-star candidates: 1) Haugabook, 2) Banks, 3) RB Kenny Cattouse
    Strength of the offense: Haugabook, running backs
    Weakness of the offense: Offensive line


    Projected Starter: Former JUCO transfer Omar Haugabook was the big pickup of the Sun Belt season, and he didn't disappoint adding some desperately needed pop to the passing game completing 61% of his passes for 2,401 yards and 21 touchdowns. However, the senior had big, big problems with interceptions throwing 17 with 16 in 11 games. While not known for being a runner, he turned it up a notch in the final two games of the year with 111 yards against FIU and 92 in the New Orleans Bowl win over Rice. With his experience and all-around skills, he'll be the lead runner in the Sun Belt Player of the Year race. He won it last year.

    Projected Top Reserves: Walk-on Tanner Jones has pushed himself into the number two job showing off a variety of skills. The 6-2, 200-pound redshirt freshman is a good runner with a nice arm, and now he has to progress enough to be considered the main main going into next year.

    Sophomore Jonathan Chandler isn't all that big and isn't the best of runners, but he has a decent enough arm and skills to compete all year for the number two spot.

    Watch Out For ... a battle all season long for the backup job. It's not even close to being solidified with a mad, year-long scramble on to see who'll replace Haugabook next year.
    Strength: Haugabook's leadership. After the way he rallied the team, and the season, with the Sun Belt title and a bowl win, this is truly his team now. He's good enough to carry the offense by himself at times.
    Weakness: Experienced reserves. There aren't any. Chandler completed two of two passes for -1 yards in his three appearances. That's about it.
    Outlook: Omar Haugabook is the key to the Sun Belt season. As long as he stays healthy and is productive, Troy will be the main contender for the title. He can't press and he must cut down on his interceptions. Getting the backups quality live reps (and not just in garbage time) will be a must.
    Rating: 6

    Running Backs

    Projected Starters: A decent running back situation got a whole bunch better with the return of 225-pound senior Sean Dawkins after missing all of last year with a broken foot and an injured knee. Part fullback and part halfback, he's a between-the-tackles runner who brings a linebacker-like mentality to the running game. He's not going to bust off any home runs, but he'll get the hard yards.

    Also back is leading returning rusher Kenny Cattouse after running for 810 yards and four touchdowns. It took a while for him to get going, but he eventually became a major player in the Sun Belt highlighted by a 172-yard, two-touchdown day against UL Lafayette and 107 yards and two scores against Arkansas State. He has good quickness and can run inside or out, but he's not necessarily a speed back. He can catch a little bit even though he isn't a consistent runner after the grab.

    Projected Top Reserves: 190-pound sophomore Justin Brooks had a nice first year running for 72 yards and three touchdowns saving the day against UL Monroe. He has a good mix of power and speed and will quickly play more of a role in the rotation, even if he has a hard time beating out Dawkins for carries.

    185-pound junior Xavier Moreland was originally considered just a special teamer and defensive back, but he'll start to see a little bit of work in the rotation with too much speed to keep off the field. He's a smart player who'll find time as long as he learns to be more of an inside runner.

    Sophomore Josh Brownell is another good-sized, physical back who can pound away for a few carries here and there.

    Watch Out For ... Dawkins to bring another element to the mix. With more power and a veteran set of legs, he should combine with Cattouse to crank out a big rushing year.
    Strength: Power. There are several interchangeable big backs who can all run up the gut and grind out yards.
    Weakness: Speed backs. Cattouse can move a little bit and several young backs can move, and Moreland can flat-out fly, but there isn't a proven outside-the-tackle runner who can get to the corner and turn it. That could quickly change if Moreland turns into a runner.
    Outlook: The more Omar Haugabook doesn't have to run, the better. While he's dangerous out of the pocket, the more Cattouse and Dawkins can combine for carries (preferably over 200), the better. It won't be the best running game in the Sun Belt, and there will be times when there's no production whatsoever, but it'll be a good enough attack to keep the pressure off the passing game.
    Rating: 5


    Projected Starters: Two key starters return to the receiving corps to provide key targets for Omar Haugabook led by leading receiver Gary Banks and third leading receiver Mykeal Terry. Terry's the speed receiver averaging 17.7 yards per catch on 27 grabs with five touchdowns. He was non-existent over the first half of the year before blowing up in back-to-back weeks catching 11 passes for 293 yards and three touchdowns in wins over Florida Atlantic and Arkansas State. Now the junior has to be consistent on the outside.

    Banks is a former quarterback, and a former Chicago Cub, who was surprisingly steady season, finishing with 68 catches for 603 yards and eight touchdowns. While he has to the size and speed to make big plays, he was mainly a possession target averaging a mere 8.9 yards a catch.

    Sophomore Cornelius Williams will get the start at the inside Y position after a great spring. At 6-1 and 180 pounds, he's a decent-sized receiver who comes from Hoover High in Alabama wining four state titles. In a limited role as a freshman, he made six catches for 32 yards.

    Also in the starting mix in four-wide sets will be sophomore Andrew Davis, a 5-9, 165-pound possession target who made 18 grabs for 130 yards and two touchdowns on the inside. He has the speed to make deeper plays; now he has to do it.

    Projected Top Reserves: Sophomore Justin Bray and senior Clarence Denmark join Terry on the X as the speed receivers who'll have to stretch the field a little bit more. Denmark has never been able to harness his tremendous speed and become a complete receiver failing to make a catch last year, while Bray only average 3.9 yards on his ten grabs with a touchdown.

    Senior Gerald Tate is another speed receiver who hasn't made a whole bunch of speed plays with just one catch for nine yards last year. Senior Josh Allen isn't going to start any time soon, but he's a tough veteran who'll make the hard catch inside every once in a while at the Y unless 6-3, 180-pound redshirt freshman Austin Silvoy takes all the work away.

    Watch Out For ... more deep passes. Troy averaged a lousy 9.9 yards per completion with a controlled passing game that focused on keeping things moving. Now the offense has to rely on Terry, and some of the other speedsters, to make bigger plays.
    Strength: Banks. Everyone inexperienced corps needs one guy who will always make catches and can always be counted on for five catches a game. Banks is the guy who'll always get open when Haugabook needs him to.
    Weakness: Experience. Terry didn't do anything until late in the year and there's no one else of note outside of Banks who has produced on a consistent basis. The entire corps will be a work in progress to find playmakers to help out Banks and Terry.
    Outlook: Haugabook will have to make everyone better. Banks can't be the only target and Terry has to be a consistent deep threat. More players need to get involved in the four-wide set and they must start producing yards after the catch. Basically, there has to be more overall pop, and it should be there if the untested prospects like Bray and Williams start to shine.

    2007 Troy Preview - Defense

    What you need to know: Troy won the Sun Belt title despite a mediocre year from the defense. Now the D will be positively dominant with the best secondary and a defensive line that's either the best, or a close second behind Middle Tennessee's. Generating pressure won't be a problem with phenomenal pass rushers from every spot, while the secondary will use five and six defensive backs at times just to get all its talent on the field. The linebacking corps is the weakness of the defense by default considering how good the line and secondary will be, but it'll still be fantastic with Boris Lee and Marcus Richardson each deserving all-star consideration.

    Returning Leaders
    Tackles: Leodis McKelvin, 66
    Sacks: Kenny Mainor, 6.5
    Interceptions: Boris Lee, 3

    Star of the defense: Senior CB Leodis McKelvin
    Player that has to step up and become a star: Senior LB Romanique Lewis
    Unsung star on the rise: Senior DT Chris Bradwell
    Best pro prospect: Bradwell
    Top three all-star candidates: 1) McKevin, 2) DE Kenny Mainor, 3) LB Boris Lee
    Strength of the defense: Overall experience, secondary, pass rush
    Weakness of the defense: Linebacker depth

    Defensive Line

    Projected Starters: The defensive line was terrific at getting into the backfield on a regular basis led by 6-4, 216-pound speed rusher Kenny Mainor, who finished with 47 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss. While the junior might be way undersized for a lineman, he's a blur in the backfield and finally learned how to close on the quarterback after coming oh-so-close time and again as a freshman. With room to put at least another 15 pounds on his frame, he has the potential to be truly special if he hits the weights hard and doesn't lose his speed.

    On the other side is 6-3, 245-pound senior Shawn Todd, a veteran with tremendous strength and a good burst into the backfield with a team-leading 17 quarterback hurries to go along with 31 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and seven tackles for loss.

    290-pound Marcus Pittman returns to his spot on the nose, but he can play either tackle position with enough quickness to get into the backfield and enough strength to hold the middle. He made 20 tackles and two sacks, but his real worth was his ability to occupy blockers and allow everyone else to work.

    Next to Pittman, at least to start the season, will be 6-5, 280-pound Chris Bradwell, a former starter for Florida State who missed all of last year after being suspended for off-the-field issues. He has the talent to be an All-Sun Belt star, but he has to keep his head screwed on straight.

    Projected Top Reserves: Even if Bradwell turns into the player everyone's expecting him to become, it might be hard keeling 6-6, 290-pound JUCO transfer Dion Gales out of the lineup. Originally signing with Ole Miss, he turned into a terror at Gulf Coast CC and could've gone just about anywhere. He's a fantastic pass rusher who'll end up starting somewhere on the line.

    6-5, 220-pound Brandon Lang could start for almost anyone else in the Sun Belt. A top-shelf pass rusher, he made 4.5 sacks and 26 tackles as a reserve behind Mainor on the left side.

    273-pound Maurice Coleman will see time at tackle after being suspended all of last year. With his size and quickness, he's a tough all-around player on the nose.

    Not to be forgotten is 6-4, 280-pound junior Steve McLendon, who started last year when Bradford got booted. He's a good athlete who made 20 tackles, but isn't going to get in the backfield like the other tackles will.

    Watch Out For ... the line to be camped out in opposing backfields all season long. All four spots can rush the passer, and so can the backups.
    Strength: Pass rush, pass rush, pass rush. Mainor is the best of a phenomenal lot that'll overwhelm average offensive lines. Not just fast, this is a big group.
    Weakness: Production against the run. Inconsistency was a problem. It stopped pedestrian running attacks cold, but got rolled over by Arkansas State, UL Monroe and UL Lafayette. Getting into the backfield is a huge concern that it sometimes takes away from stopping the play.
    Outlook: This was going to be a good line, and then it picked up Gales and got Bradwell and Coleman back. There's legitimate NFL talent up front, and if everyone plays up to their potential, this will be a dominant front four with a tremendous rotation.
    Rating: 6


    Projected Starters: Sophomore Boris Lee came from out of nowhere to become a major playmaker in the middle finishing third on the team with 62 tackles with a team-leading three interceptions with two sacks and six tackles for loss. He's only 210 pounds, but he's fast enough to move all over the field coming up with big plays against the pass and in the backfield. He's always, always around the ball and one of the surest open field tacklers in the Sun Belt.

    Back in the corps is 6-3, 214-pound senior Marcus Richardson, who got hurt last season breaking his collarbone tackling Georgia Tech star Calvin Johnson. Even so, he still made 40 tackles. With 4.4 speed and pass coverage skills of a defensive back, he's a dream of a weakside linebacker after playing on the strongside last season.

    The one new starter to the mix is 6-2, 225-pound senior Romanique Lewis, who's finally 100% healthy and able to show what he can do. He made 26 tackles in a reserve role and will be one of the team's biggest hitters.

    Projected Top Reserves: 6-3, 245-pound JUCO transfer David McDowell won't knock Lee out of a starting spot in the middle, but he's a phenomenal prospect who might be too good to keep out of the lineup. He's big, fast, and very, very productive, at least at the JUCO level.

    204-pound senior Josh Maxwell is one of the only reserves with appreciable D-I experience making 17 tackles last season. He has the athleticism of a corner and has seen a little action in the middle. He'll play on the weakside behind Richardson.

    Watch Out For ... Richardson to have a special senior season. He's in the right position for him able to use his speed to make more plays in space. It'll be a shock if he's not one of the team's top three tacklers and an All-Sun Belt performer if he stays healthy.
    Strength: Speed. Lee, Richardson and Lewis can all move. They're all physical and they can all be disruptive in the backfield as well as in pass coverage.
    Weakness: Overall experience. There's almost none among the backups while Lewis is still a little bit of a question mark on the strongside. If injuries start to strike early on, there will be problems.
    Outlook: It's not nearly the concern it might appear to be. Lee and Richardson are both all-stars, and McDowell should eventually be a major impact player somewhere. Don't be shocked if Lee ends up moving to the strongside if McDowell turns out to be the real deal in the middle. In any event, the linebacking corps is the one perceived weakness on the defense, and it's not really that bad.
    Rating: 5

    Defensive Backs

    Projected Starters: Senior Leodis McKelvin is one of the best players in the Sun Belt as both a kick and punt returner and a corner finishing second on the team with 66 tackles with eight broken up passes. He's the team's shutdown corner with the speed to erase any Sun Belt receiver. While he's not all that big at 5-11 and 187 pounds, he's extremely physical.

    On the other side is Elbert Mack, a junior who's good enough to make teams pay for avoiding McKelvin on the right side. While a rail-thin 5-10 and 168 pounds, he's a decent tackler.

    There's so much talent in the secondary that the coaching staff will often go with five defensive backs in nickel situations. Getting Sherrod Martin back on the field is a must after he missed all of last year getting healthy after having problems with his shoulders. He has 146 career tackles and 16 broken up passes seeing time at both safety positions.

    Junior Tavares Williams is back at free safety after making 58 tackles. One of the team's better all-around athletes, he'll be asked to do even more when the ball is in the air and use his speed to play at an All-Sun Belt level. The one newcomer to the starting mix will be junior Terence Moore, a 6-3, 195-pound hitter who did a nice job making 29 tackles and two interceptions in a reserve role.

    Projected Top Reserves: Former Florida State Seminole Trevor Ford will push extremely hard for a starting spot. He sat out last year after walking on to the team after making 13 tackles for FSU. He's 6-1, 195 pounds, and one of the fastest players in the Sun Belt; he'll be too good to keep off the field and could quickly find a himself starting at corner.

    Redshirt freshman Chris Bowens is the star corner of the future, but he might have a hard time seeing the field playing behind McKelvin.

    At safety, senior Derick Pendergrass has to find time after an ankle injury limited him to just four games last season. While not as big as Moore, he's a big hitter at strong safety.

    Watch Out For ... the coaching staff to have a major problem on its hands, in a good way. The team has too many good defensive backs to get on the field at once.
    Strength: Depth. You could put together a second team of of Bowens, Ford, Pendergrass and Martin and it might be the best in the Sun Belt.
    Weakness: Playing up to the talent. If there's so much talent and so many good players, why wasn't the pass defense better last season? Secondaries dream of getting a pass rush like the Troy front four generated, but seven teams threw for 200 yards or more and picked apart the star corners. There's no excuse for troy to allow 215 yards per game again.
