Todd Berry's resumé points: made ULM interesting, actually used formation with two quarterbacks in it, made Baylor (Baylor!) the overdogs, almost beat Auburn and hastened the end of the John L. Smith era in 2012, completely revamped career after disastrous turn at Army, and will totally pose in hunting camo paint and holding a shotgun for your program because Todd Berry, for whatever reason on earth, fell into the perfect Todd Berry-shaped hole in Monroe and doesn't seem to be budging.
(Oh, and he just made "the first Camo-Out in college football history" a real thing.)
ULM's going to face another crapshootish year in 2014, but they do have a few advantages. They do return a lot of their skill players. They do get the possibility of beating an ACC team at home in their season opener, as someone talked Wake Forest into a home-and-home with them. (Though it's arguable that Monroe has a larger fanbase at this point.) They do have the following outstanding names on their roster:
- Lenzy Pipkins
- Rob'Donovan Lewis
- Ben Risenhoover
- Harley Scioneaux
- Ben Banogu
- D'Marius Gillespie
Stop hogging all the damn names, Louisiana. For the third straight year the Warhawks are a lovable, quirky underdog from the conference that has like, all of them: The Sun Belt. Love them, love their coach posing in hunting gear, and maybe pat their AD on the head for sort of holding a shotgun almost-correctly.
