RE: First Football Mag Out - Athlon
I liked playing USM. It was like playing Ark State. A local rivalry game that drew a good crowd. It is called the BLACK AND BLUE BOWL.

Ryan might need to step up the pace a bit or his seat might begin to get a little warmer.

Ill be surprised of they win 4 games.

Seven? No damn way

Not only did we dropped USM to add head to head with Georgia St.

We gave them the first home game.

They didn't even start their program till 2010.

Playing Georgia State is a a lot smarter than playing uSM.

Georgia State a program on the rise, uSM is still falling

former Tiger TE coach & Tulane OC Will Hall took over USM last year.
He'll get them in the right direction...he's a good coach.

The only preseason College Football magazine worth anything is the one Phil Steele puts out, the rest aren't worth lining the bottom of a birdcage with.

Literally nobody cares about them.

you must be a bit younger, they used to be a solid FB program and a good rivalry

The Black and Blue game.

I remember beating them at the Liberty Bowl with DeAngelo and thinking we had finally emerged as a football school.

I lived there 2 years (longest 5 years of my life), and it's baseball and football nothing else. High School baseball, Junior College baseball, College baseball, it all matters and they all talk about it.

Add in the fact that it's really the only thing that USM is any good at and you can see why it gets the support of everyone. USM football may come back to some form of respectability within the Sun Belt, but I think the days of the USM powerhouse program of the 80s & 90s are gone. The Power Conferences are too far ahead and USM didn't take the right steps to try and keep up.


I suppose the thing that puzzled me the most about Athlon was their disrespect for Seth. They had him ranked as the 5th best QB in the conference. This for a guy that as true freshman put up amazing numbers and was voted by the Football Writers Association as Freshman All-American. I would expect that there would be a couple of upper classmen AAC QBs rated higher than Seth but I just doubt that there are 4 QBs in the conference better than he is. Just my humbler opinion.

Who are the other 4?

I really don't remember anything other that the number 4 QB was a Soph - I was to cheap to buy the thing.

Me too. I stopped buying Athlons and Lindys years ago.

Phil Steele's mag is all you need. There's a reason his is later to hit shelves. He's extremely thorough and does the necessary research. IMO

You could probably throw Street and Smiths into the junk pile group as well. Agree completely on the Steele's work.

Seven? No damn way

Winning only 4 would mean that the wheels have fallen off and the wagon is on fire. I don't think Silverfield could survive that. Here is the way I see it:

At Miss St - Loss

Most people seem to think the Tigers will lose this one. At a SEC school and they might want revenge for last years Fluke/Heads-Up play win

At Navy - Toss up

Navy doesn't have much of an offense but it remains to be seen if we have much of a Defense. Either way it's at Annapolis.

If the Tigers have survived opening with two on the road and are 2-0 or 1-1 then they should be favored against Art St.

Arkansas St - Toss Up

The only thing I know about Ark St is that we should win but they are maybe due. One of their guys keeps coming on the board every year telling everyone how great they are and saying we will struggle to stay n the field with them.

N Texas - Toss Up

I know less about N Texas than I do about ARk ST. So theres that. But - its at home and we should do ok....right?

Temple - Tiger Win

We keep thinking we should win and they keep beating us. Perhaps this is the year we break the Temple curse.

Houston - Toss Up

Cougars are all pumped about Moving On Up and joining the Big 12 middle class.

AT ECU - Loss

Why? Dunno - I'm just making this up as I go along

At Tulane - Tigers Win

Tulane is actually coming along with a decent coach. But - they will only have 63 fans in attendance, including staff and player families.

UCF - Loss

I have always thought it best that you schedule a patsy for Homecoming. They are all puffed up about the Big 12 and have all those speedy Florida athletes.

Tulsa - Win

We should be able to beat a university with only a couple of dozen students on our home field. Shouldn't we?

North Alabama - Tiger Win

Hard to see us losing to a directional school even if they are from Alabama.


AT SMU - Tiger Loss

If the season is going better than most think then the Tigers could conceivably win this one. On a good day with the wind at their back. I just don't think so.

So overall I see:

Best Case: 8-4
Worst Case: 4-8

Most Likely: Something In-Between

As a die hard Tiger fan for over 50 years I am hoping that RS has learned some lessons - that the new coordinators have 'IT" - that a speedy, elusive RB rises to the top; that a couple of the WR guys will prove to have been Austins in waiting - that injuries are rare - that our turnover margin is the best in the land - and get all the breaks and win 10.

I used to buy all the mags. They all pander to the p5 these days and don't even do their due diligence. Saves me a lot of money. As already stated Phil Steele is the only mag that is any good. He writes for gamblers and all they want to know is who has what and what are the odds. No pandering, and he is very good at what he does. In the Cotton Bowl season he had the Tigers picked to go undefeated in the regular season. His only miss was because of the blown call at Temple. I pre order his mag and receive it in the mail early. Always look forward to his analysis. If he picks us 7-5 I will be disappointed and hopeful that he missed on us this season. I really doubt he will have Seth picked as 5th best QB in the conference.

RE: First Football Mag Out - Athlon
Same people crying about playing teams like UTSA and No Texas, want us to put USM back on the schedule.
They are the same teams.
We made it fun back in the day, because they were a fellow independent and there weren't many of us left in the south.
It was a "rivalry" out of necessity.
I'm fine with putting them in the rotation with other CUSA/Sun Belt teams for a non-con game.
But just say no to an annual game.
