Not even a single team in the top 60 right now, but a bunch hovering around 60 to 80. Going to be interesting to see who separates themselves from the pack

I'll be surprised if both divisions don't end up decided by a tie-breaker.....

UNT escaped UAB, who is still very much in the race for the west.
UNT beat USM, and they are still very much in the race.
UTSA: Obviously, still in the race.
Louisiana Tech: In the race.

UNT has beaten 2 teams, but won nothing, yet.

Every team deserves as much respect as UNT at this point...

Best comment on here. What we saw last week goes to show that this is very much an open race. The perceived "great" teams showed weakness and some of the perceived "mediocre" teams are showing progression.

The only thing worse than a conference with a weak bottom....

One without a strong top.

The middle did not move closer to the top. The top moved back to the middle and there is still a clear weak bottom. At least early on. That may change over the next 4 or 5 games but right now that's my perception.

I agree, the bottom is marginally better but the top is not near as good, WKU and Tech. This is evident by OCC play FAU was blown out by Navy and UNT by SMU

That's the sole reason I have Marshall at the top, for now. No bad loss. No great win, either, but winning what we should and two of those games we were underdogs, mistakenly, but still dogs. King of the hill doesn't have to be the best or biggest kid, just the one at the top of the hill till someone knocks him off.

Chuck Heater has Marshall's defense playing at a high right now. Marshall is allowing 17.4 points per game, they have a shutout and have allowed 3 points in two of their four games. We have 3 players ranked in the top 10 in different defensive stats, Chris Jackson in INTs and INT return yards, Ryan Bee in Pass break ups and Brandon Drayton in Passes defended.

I don't know if it was the wet ball, the humidity or what but I seen way to many over thrown balls from Litton Saturday. If it was just him over throwing, if he gets that corrected then we can and will be dangerous.

Again what was one of our weakest units last year, may just be our strongest this year in our secondary. All of our red shirt freshman and true freshman have grown up and the addition of red shirt freshman Brandon Drayton and Jaquan Yulee have been great. That with the move of Ryan Bee from DB to DL has improved the defense 10 fold.
