In this, the last year of the Sun Belt (thank god) we have a chance to win the thing despite what the negative types are saying. Let us take a look around at what happened:
You might know this game as the only compelling Sun Belt matchup to outsiders, well ever. The bastards from Monroe have become America’s darling after their “upset” of that self-destructing Arkansas team and subsequent close defeats at Auburn and home to Baylor. They have spunk and can score. They are 1-2 entering conference play . . . just like we were coming into this weekend. If you want to crown their ass then crown them.
Ah FAU. They are terrible but they did end Alabama’s shutout streak. So I guess there’ll be a parade in Boca. That is, if they can be pried away from shuffleboard (rimshot!). I’ll be here all week, folks. Seriously, that is a bad squad that should be taken apart by this Mean Green running game.
Eek. That is looking like a monster team there. Southern Miss isn’t as great as they used to be but they are CUSA so they presumably have some kind of advantage. Supposedly Kentucky did too but the Hilltoppers took care of them the week before. Our matchup with them is the last game of the year, so hopefully they slow down some.
The Jags are bad. Losing to #23 Miss St isn’t shameful, but barely squeaking a win out over Nicholls is. So is losing to UTSA at home. It is going to be a long season for them. We play them Nov 10th.
Warm up game. This is the kind of beating that UNT should have put on Tx Southern but whatevs. After having lost to Oregon and Nebraska pretty badly, and looking good against Memphis, the thinking is that this warm up game is good preparation for the big SBC matchup with WKU this coming week. Or is it bad preparation?
Oh FIU. You showed such promise and were filled with such potential. They, not ULM, were supposed to be the attention grabbing squad. Still, hanging with #20 is also a nice moral victory. I wonder how it stacks up to our two.
