2015 Preview: Colgate Raiders
Biggest Question Mark: Is it possible for Colgate to consistently earn double-digits in the wins column? Yes, every team wants to win consistently, but first a team has to prove they can win. Colgate has that part covered. Now they need to make that excellence an expectation rather than an aberration. (Ok, perhaps aberration is a bit dramatic, but you get the idea.)
