    I agree EYES. And, thereís nothing wrong with our conference continuing to build and get better as a group of schools and earn more of a reputation as the top G5 conference overall.

    As an individual school, we have to rise up a couple of notches in all main sports AND annual giving must rise to do this so that we can pay good coaches to stay and attract new ones and upgrade facilities as we need to and then hopefully be desirable for any legitimate move up.

    Agreed. Unless something drastic happens in the near future, the only options geographically are CUSA and the AAC. At this point CUSA would be a step down from th Sun Belt, and the AAC just isn't realistic for the time being.

    Officials definitely seem to have a predetermined plan for who they intend to win.

    For 2019 record, I see us winning 5 or 6 home games ( ULL or ULM one being a toss up). On the road, I think we can beat AState, Gag and USA outright with loss to LSU while Troy, App and Minnesota are toss-ups. So worst case 8 wins and best case 10 to 11 wins. Not counting the bowl game, I would say 9-3. GS will Improve in scheme with AState breaking in the new QB and App steps back on D. Troy, ULL, App and GS fight it out for the SB Title.

    Never has made much sense to have GS, App, and Troy in the same division.....

    And of course, try a little bit to make it look at least a tiny bit like the refs arenít dirty. If it comes down to trying to help any opponent we ever play, those guys are waaaaay over the top.

    Maybe they hate the mean words we call them. Maybe they didnít get enough hugs, but I sure have seen a LOT of crap from their officiating
    I agree with switching out Troy and USA. More balance to league. But, no telling what will happen with Texas State and ULL but both of those programs have loads of potential and I expect to be a lot better.

    Better to be optimistic than pessimistic. 2019 will be a difficult and challenging year. Hopefully we will be competitive and maintain our respectful playability.

    LSU- loss

    Minnesota- a winnable game for sure if we can improve on our 2018 season.
    I donít get why we think we can beat most mid-western P5 teams. I get being confident but Minnesota is not a cakewalk. I fall for the trap also. Itís because we donít see them play as often as we do SEC and ACC teams. We see 6-6 records and we automatically think Ďupsetí.

    Weíve beaten one P5 in 40 years. I love our team and Iíll try to go to both LSU and MN games but I donít feel confident. Indiana taught me a lesson.

    That means zilch. We've played one P5 team with a losing record ever and are 1-0. We also played scarce few non-elite Power 5s.

    The only two that come to mind that wouldn't be considered "elite" are Indiana, NC State, North Carolina, And Ga Tech. Am I missing any? Also, it's incredible that we've only played one with a losing record. Oh yeah, there was Oregon State in '99.

    I like the trajectory of this stuff long term. The more P5 experience we get, the more we will really challenge for a win.

    I really like the way things are going. I like mixing it up with the big boys. We signed up for big boy football, and we will become good at it.
    I donít disagree, I always feel like we should compete. Prior to the Summers era, I used to believe we could win those games. Except when Stowers was coaching. We never had a chance in the early 90ís against Auburn, UGA, FSU, UF or Miami. I guess Ď91 Auburn was close until the 4th quarter.

    I truly felt like Monken and Fritz teams, like Johnson, could compete with any P5. I hope I feel the same about Lunsfordís teams.
