When one says that last year was a pain for the Ball State Cardinals, it can be taken literally. The Cardinals suffered from a barrage of injuries on both sides of the ball which killed any prospects of success last season. The list of injuries reads like a M.A.S.H. unit and it is easy to see why the Cardinals got blown out of practically every conference game. Now that the Cardinals are healthy, improvement is naturally expected.

Riley Neal returns from injury to lead the offense. Neal had gotten off to a positive start last season before getting hurt in the third game. Neal also gets several skill players back from, you guessed it, injury. The Cardinals will seem to have an entirely new offense even without bringing in a player. The offensive line also has several returning players, many of whom got experience last year filling in for injured players.

It was the same story on defense last season as half the defensive unit missed time due to injuries. The defense did play with a group of freshmen and sophomores last year who now return one year older. The defense got burned by many big plays last year, perhaps because it was tired from spending so much time on the field.

The Cardinals will most assuredly bounce back from a two-win campaign last year. Worst-to-first may be a stretch, but a bowl game is not beyond the realm of possibility. However, the schedule is difficult, giving the Cardinals little room for error.
