Probably wouldn't read if you are a Marshall fan.

"They don't look like a mid major physically" They must have gotten a quote from a former coach for that one, 52-7 first half 03-lmfao

Quote:The offensive lineman (Forrest Lamp) I really liked graduated, but they’re definitely the cream of the crop in our league.”

“Their talent is just a little bit better than anybody else.”

“They look more like a Power Five team when you play them. They’ve got bigger kids
and they’ve done a good job recruiting in Florida.”

LOFL.

I may or may not have enjoyed reading that. Not because it was said about Western. But for the folks on this board that had to read it. Has to SUCK. Lol.


Before anyone starts the hate train. This wasn't a Western person that said this. It was an anonymous CUSA coach. Don't get mad at us. We didn't say it.

Doesn't mean one win this year for us but still amusing for me to read. Now Ima go back and read everyone else's. The Marshall one first since it was mentioned by OP.

Funny how some things said are exactly what posters here also think. Then the fans come out and call you a hater for an honest assessment. Although, some of us are just haters. lol

I don't think I've seen anyone from Marshall come on here and defend last year. We all are aware of what happened with our results last year, if not knowing the exact cause or combination of causes. It's not really any different that USM's 3 year debacle, or your loss of the team, Rice going from the top to the bottom. **** happens. If UAB comes out and lays an egg, well below any expectations, we'll see how gracious you are taking criticism.

Most important is taking care of OOC business. Win the ones we should and pick up a few we shouldn't. The conference play will work itself out, but we need to continue to win some tough games pre-conference to get out of the cellar.

Our biggest fear is that we aren't any better and we don't take steps to make changes to get better. If we have another like last year and Doc remains at the helm it will be an exodus of support akin to anything the bible throws out there. All of our Herd forums are soundly split between critical posters/sky is falling types and sunshine pumpers. I don't think it will take much to push the ever-optimistics over the edge. Many of us believe it hinges on the Miami game. Decent peer school is a good marker of where we're at. Close game or a win and we'll be fine, most likely. Another Akron type game at home and the sky firmly hits the ground.

I know UAB football hasn't been around so I'll give you a pass as maybe you didn pay attention during football season. Nothing that was said wasnt said on here by all Marshall fans. It was well documented on here and other media and obviously in Huntington and in Marshall circles that off the field issues played a major role in last year's fluke season. Add in the injuries and it was a perfect poop storm.

Hope CUSA enjoyed the year off.

RE: Athlon: Conference USA Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes
Soooo... the coaches are saying the same thing about F_U that the fans on here say:

“I don’t think they care about anything right now other than getting some better players in there because the record the last couple years speaks for itself.”

“I don’t have any doubt they’ll get some talented guys, the question is going to be if they can manage the kind of guys they get and not turn it into a circus.”

“They went out right off the bat and got the quarterback who was kicked out of Florida State (De’Andre Johnson) and hired Kendal Briles to run the offense, so they’re not going to be afraid to take risks.”
