I only left one out, and you already called it out. I don't have intention on calling out troll posts.

CUSAbbs Preseason Football Poll
Here's my humble opinion and my Top 6

1. Middle Tennessee. Returning one of the best QB's in the league and one of the best WR's in the country along with the same coaching staff. But can they play a lick of defense?

2. Louisiana Tech. Returning the same coaching staff and should be solid in the trenches. Would normally ding a team for a new QB but we've had a new starter for the past 3 seasons. Will the secondary play better and can we come close to replacing Henderson and Taylor's production?

3. Western Kentucky. Returning an extremely solid team but a new coaching staff will make it interesting to watch how everything develops.

The top 3 are really almost interchangable.

4. Marshall. Consistent team in the past with plenty of talent, should be competitive in the East. Was last year's team a fluke or have they been eating at Fat Patty's too much and lost their edge?

5. Old Dominion. Wilder has been building a solid program and this could be their year to show out against the top teams in the East.

6. UTSA. A program that has been making strides towards competing for the West title. Do they battle Tech in Ruston for the Western crown or does Frank Wilson have a sophomore slump?

Last 4 out: Southern Miss, UNT, Florida Twins

I will take last place for now. I think Rice and UAB will be strong this year. Rice just needs to tone down their head banger schedules and schedule a few wins every now and then.

Baylor is settling rape lawsuits for the period your current OC was at Baylor, so the comment is not far fetched.

The only thing was Kendal was said to have done was the "white women quote". The fake outrage over that was ridicules because most schools use girls to attract get athletes in one way or another.
Even watch ESPN when a big game is on.

See, I've been surprised that anyone has been picking them anywhere else (much less the one that has them so high).

What does that say about a program if UAB comes back and does finish ahead of them?

Lets see if the guy running this flags it and calls it out for just what it is....

it's clear you put the school that were in CUSA 2012 back then listed the other.


I say this and I honestly don't give a crap where you list anyone...its meaningless

You're right. It's meaningless as ALL preseason polls are. So anyone who supports a school should have them #1 as they have just as much right to the #1 spot as the next school. What you claim as clear is murky. As I said in a previous post I listed Marshall #1 as should be then listed the schools as I thought of them. My rankings are no more meaningful or meaningless than the next one listed in this thread and to make a case means that you or whomever is making the case is saying that their opinion has more value than the next. So the purpose is flawed.

Polls shouldn't even come out until mid to late October. Everything else is just fluff.

Umm.. pass?

It's hard to say really. The league is an offensive league and CFB in general is setup for offenses to succeed. Based off the last few years I'd probably say USM. It's certainly not Tech. Although I think we have some really talented d lineman and DBs.

I was told that our defense might be the strongest part our team this year, if so WKU should be solid..... if not we might struggle, i expect our offense to drop off some

WKU will be interesting to watch. It will be very interesting to see how the offense flows post Brohm. He called plays didn't he? He was without question the best coach in the league last season. That is a huge loss imo. Talent is there at QB so the offense should still put up points. I don't think it will be at same rate but that doesn't mean the WKU offense won't be in the top 3 in the league. Defense in our league is all about turnovers. Points will be scored but if you can win the TO battle you will win some games. ODU is suppose to have a good defense but we haven't played them in so long I really don't know much about them.
