The main issue for 2012 is pretty simple: the Mean Green lost 27 seniors from last year's squad, and though it initially seems like all 27 were defensive backs, there are quite a few interesting players to replace.

However, with so little experience coming back, McCarney may need to wait until 2013 before he can make a serious run at a Sun Belt conference title.
