I have been seeing the writing on the wall that 2023 would be step back, possibly even a big step back from the past few seasons (which were in turn, also a big step back from 2017-2019). But I do agree that 2024 has a lot of potential with a lot of the offensive talent being either sophomores or juniors in 2023. Defensively, this is my big concern for 2023. The upcoming senior class hasn't really shown the kind of talent or depth we are used to seeing at Mentor. It is hard to rely on sophomores and juniors (unless their names are Trubisky, Fritts, and Krizancic) to carry you to big playoff wins.
