I think it's fair to say, so goes the Miami game so goes Marshall's season and Doc's future at Marshall. It's at home, Miami is on par with the average CUSA team. If Doc can't coach Marshall to a win against a former rival at home, it's hard to believe he can get 6 wins out of the remaining schedule.

03-lmfao Tulsa?
Up until last season Tulsa has been terrible for years, Tech would take Tulsa to woodshed in the WAC. Actually CUSA 2.0 was weaker than the WAC (pre2012) there were many years where Houston, Memphis and ECU were down right awful.

And when Houston was really good such as 2011, they weren't top 25 caliber just easy CUSA schedule. (Tech had them down 34-7 late in the third quarter)

I blame injuries to an extent but there was def some "extra circular activities" going on behind the scenes. Huntington is too small and too many people talk. Now like any good telephone game stories change as they go down the line but when you start hearing the same stories from MANY sources and these sources are solid and not 20 people down the line then you realize that rumors and "injuries" are not always what you are lead to believe.

That being said I also know that there was a lot of growing up and I would be surprised if the debacle from last year was ever repeated.

What is the population of Huntington?

Was that the game Franklin "coached" us to a loss?

You really have a fanciful memory of history. How many years ago was Tulsa in the WAC? How have they done since then?

If not for their small fanbase, Tulsa would be elite, based on their performance and investment

What is the population of Huntington?

About 48,000 within the city limits of Huntington. Interestingly, in 1950 the Huntington city limits had about 85,000. The metro area encompasses about 7 counties in 3 states for a total of about 360,000 people.

Yes, one of the most disappointing losses in recent history besides the 2012 Utah State game and the 2015 Southern Miss game which was an epic failure on both sides of the ball

Like 39,000 or something. The Huntington "metro area" population though is much larger something like 360,000.
