RE: Week 2 CUSA Power Rankings
We'll have a better sense of who are the best teams after 4-5 games. I do think my Eagles can be a good team this season, even as young as they are. It does seem that CUSA doesn't have a flat out dominant team, like WKU has been last couple seasons.

Watch out for La Tech and Rice.

UTEP is going to get better too.

North Texas is a potential juggernaut.

But we all know Southern Miss is going to win the west.

Everyone please ignore UTSA.

Not convinced yet. Liberty looked a bit better against a poor Baylor team. Only thing concerns me about UTSA is obvious pick plays allowed to be run right in front of incompetent CUSA referees.

Looked better offensively perhaps, yes. But Baylor got about 3 starters back on their defense for us, who were injured for Liberty. If not for the muffed punt which set Baylor up in our red zone, Baylor likely doesn't even score a single touchdown against us.

And without intending to sound like a homer, I think we were in the more difficult situation, given Baylor's surprise loss to Liberty in week one. Shocking a P5 in a home opener is one thing, but someone else coming in and making them lose a 2nd straight game at home to open their season is a bit more tricky, especially after they get some injured starters back, have had a chance to make some adjustments, and the other team hasn't even played yet.

Yeah, UTSA had last week's game film to go by, while Baylor had nothing of ours from last week. But Baylor has new coach, giving UTSA one game to look at, unless we go back to Temple game films, which won't necessarily be on par with what he's doing at Baylor. Baylor had all of last season to look at for us, since we have the same staff and most of our starters haven't changed either.

So with all due respect, if the only thing about UTSA that concerns you is alleged pick plays, remind me again of what our score was when we met last year. Look, I've said to others that we shouldn't get too excited over this win right now because it's one game, and there are still unanswered questions. But if you have no concerns aside from officials, you're either naive or just have a penchant for reckless statements.

Reckless statements. Ha. You forget we know Frank Wilson. He coached here. And at Ole Miss for several years. Always was known as the bag man.
The two pick plays I refer to were in our game against y'all last year in which you won. Go back and look. Very poorly disguised and in press coverage. But executed nonetheless right in front of the knucklehead CUSA refs. Two went for long TDs and another was inside the red zone. Good for y'all and shame on our coaches for not raising hell about it.

No, I get what this is all about now. I admit the Baylor team we beat isn't the Baylor of years past, so you're downplaying the win as much as possible. But we beat you guys much worse last year than we did Baylor, and with a lesser team, so we've been living rent-free in your heads ever since.

It's real convenient to whine about officials when you lose, when as has been said, there are missed calls both ways in every game. There are guys like you in every fan base, including our own. Ironically, guys like you rarely, if ever, blame officials when your team wins, but when there's a loss, they're scapegoat #1, even if it's a 23-point beatdown.

If you worry a little less about our outcomes and a little more about your own games, you might feel a little better. If that doesn't work, try a blanket.

Like i said, you won. I hope the calls even out this year. That a will make for some interesting conversations. We also lost to more crappy teams let year than just USTA so don't feel special. Crawling out of the hole we were in has been a long battle but we're getting there.
But to get to the point, you guys beat what looks to be a poor Baylor team. Good for y'all. That doesn't make you the front runner just yet. We lost to a mediocre Kentucky team after spotting them a half. Who's the front runner? We will have to wait and see,
