Long known for its early season upsets, the Appalachian State Mountaineers have become a power in their own right. The Mountaineers have won 27 of their last 30 Sun Belt Conference games, establishing a dynasty in their conference. There are some changes, however, that Appalachian State will have to weather to continue its conference dominance this year.

The Mountaineers have had to cope with personnel changes both on the field and the sideline. The biggest loss may have been defensive coordinator Nate Woody, who decamped to take a job on the staff at Georgia Tech. The defense was simply dominant last year, allowing 30 points over its last four games combined. Therefore, the internal promotion of Bryan Brown to assume defensive coordinator duties should lead to continuity for the unit. The personnel on that unit largely remain the same, albeit under different leadership.

Appalachian State faces the prospect of replacing quarterback Taylor Lamb who helmed the team’s offensive attack for four years. Lamb sparked the golden era of Mountaineers’ football and was part and parcel of the team’s identity. There are both rushing and receiving weapons surrounding new quarterback Zac Thomas that he can lean on while he acclimates to the position. Running back Jalin Moore figures to lead the attack after battling injuries last year.

Head Coach Scott Satterfield has set the conditions for success at Appalachian State and has stuck around to see things through in spite of heavy demand for his services. Now, the Mountaineers are poised to challenge for their third straight Sun Belt title. After the Mountaineers’ early nonconference scrum against Penn State, they settle into a manageable non-conference schedule before defending their Sun Belt title. Although its conference rivals have improved around it, Appalachian State should be in a position to win yet another conference title.
