It was a meaningless scrimmage...

It was. You're not foolish enough to believe that OU took that thing seriously, or that they didn't rotate their squad regularly to gain experience for the regular season.

Take anything you see in exhibition play with a grain of salt. Win or lose.

With two first teamers returning, not a surprise UTA is picked #1. But there are just a few points separating them from 2-5.

interesting coaches picked Georgia State second, but only 1 Panther is represented 1st, 2nd, and 3rd all sunbelt teams. does that mean our rotation depth is hella fantastic?

Good point. I wouldn't put too much stuck into the preseason rankings, I only use it to find out which teams are supposed to be competitive. I do believe in Georgia State is one of those teams.

It means coaches don't know enough about who Georgia State has to vote on them. Preseason Polls are all about the familiar. Coaches vote for the people they know, not the one's they don't know.

FYI, Here is what SI has:

1. UL Lafayette
2. Texas Arlington
3. Georgia State
4. Georgia Southern
5. Arkansas State
6. Troy
7. Texas State
8. Coastal Carolina
9. UL Monroe
10. App State
11. South Alabama
12. Little Rock

SI has The top 5 all within 100-150 in the Full D1 Rankings list, with Troy and Texas State hanging 150-200. They have Little Rock as one of the 10 worst teams in America this season. Woof.

I think Little Rock will be okay. We looked decent last night (of course we were playing a DII team) despite having 2 expected starters out with injuries- Camron Reedus (Juco All-American) and DeAndre Burns (best returning player). Couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, from outside, but I think (hope) those two players will change that. Not predicting a championship, but believe we will be competitive and maybe finish in the middle of the pack.

Still a lot of games to be played, but we are pretty darn good.
