Lord, that would be a blessing. But until it happens, I am not counting my eggs. I just want 8 wins and a bowl game. Anything past that is lagniappe.

RE: Athlon C-USA Preview
I would take that matchup...the outcome would be different.


For for a 3 peat on a cold day with a half empty stadium. Well if uk doesn't have a basketball game and it's 60 degrees and sunny 1/3 empty. For Western to get out of the East...probably have to win the heads up with Tech this year. So it will be played at Western.

If the Toppers lose to Illinois they won't win 6 conference games, they are projected the worst team in the Big10.

I think Athlon had done no better job than 50% (or more) of the posters here could. They got FAU judged about right, but this was a no-brainer.

RE: Athlon C-USA Preview
Its just pick whatever teams were good last year............

LT has the best projected defensive lineman in the conference, but I have a hard time believing ODU doesn't have the best DL overall. It is at least 8 deep and all but 1 player is back on a DL that was rated among the best in creating havoc last year. They even have talented redshirt freshman that have almost no chance of seeing significant minutes because the unit is so deep.

Signletary is good, but what is the justification for FAU over ODU at the RB spot? It's like they take Lawry for granted.

I don 't really have a strong opinion on the position rankings other than that, but those 2 spots really stuck out to me.

RE: Athlon C-USA Preview
So Louisiana Tech is far and away the best team in the West but they're only expected to win the division by one game over Southern Miss and UTSA?

I mean, it'd not inconceivable that both can be true, it's just an odd thing to predict.

Actually, I saw a statistical analysis of all the magazines from top to bottom in terms of accuracy. I always bought Sporting News because I thought it was the most comprehensive and accurate. I was wrong.

Athlon was the most accurate, followed by Phil Steele... Sporting News was about fifth.
