SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Wofford coach Mike Ayers believes the Terriers were very close to keeping their successful run going last season and plans to get back on track this fall.

The longest serving coach in the Southern Conference — Ayers starts his 27th season with the Terriers — had his program in position for another conference crown and NCAA playoff spot midway through last season before they closed with a four-game losing streak to finish 5-6.

It was only the second losing season for Wofford in the past 12 years and ended a run of three straight trips to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. When Ayers reviewed the film, he didn't see poor fundamentals, effort or execution. He saw a handful of mistakes at the worst times, all fixable for this year.
