Not sure if this belongs here (and if anyone will find it interesting - but I hope) - but took a look at the relationship in the MAC between experience level and conference win percentage since 2013 season. Here are two charts, the one on the left is the entire MAC with Buffalo highlighted in blue. The chart on the right is Buffalo's result by itself.
Some observations - the R-squared on Buffalo chart shows that there is some correlation between team experience and win pct. However, other variables, like the coach, players and quality of the other MAC teams (as well as other factors) would account for differences in performance. The main take away from the chart on the left - shows how Buffalo has been one of the top performers in the MAC (which I know I did not need to do the chart to tell you). Given the current makeup of the team - it is looking like experience level will be around 2.80-2.90 (from Barttorvik estimates which do not factor in Malik - but I don't expect that to change average much). Given that experience level - the high bar was set by Oats in 2017-18 year with 15-3 record (0.833 win percent. Again this is not the only variable that should be considered, but I think 14/15 wins out of 20 would be in line with past performance. Hoping that there is a season to find out.
