    They basically say any Sun Belt team that did good was a flash in the pan.
    Actually, they just took the majority of G5 teams that finished well and ***** slapped them to the back of the line to put the P5 that underperformed back in place.

    129. Texas State (123, -6)
    119. USA (109, -10)
    117. CCU (98, -19)
    115. Georgia State (122, +7)
    113. ULM (89, -24)
    98. GS (28, -70!!!)
    92. Ark State (72, -20)
    91. ULL (79, -12)
    88. Troy (33, -55)
    73. App (21, -52)

    127. NMSU (124, -3)
    84. Tulane (67, -17)
    65. Army (20, -45)
    62. Colorado (99, +37)
    45. GT (64, +19)
    38. Minnesota (44, +6)
    7. LSU (10, +3)
    Of course 28 is definitely high for us, but dropping 70 places? Why?
    Don't choose to be annoyed. Choose to be amused.

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    At LSU L 38-10
    Maine W 32-17
    At Minn L 31-17
    Louisiana W 35-28
    At South Alabama W 37-20

    At App State L 28-14
    At Troy L 26-21
    ULM W 31-21
    At Arkansas State L 27-24
    Georgia State W 38-17
    Appy is the only SB team that worries me, I think we beat Arkansas State and Troy. And I agree we have an outside shot at beating the row your boat guy. This could be a special season boys.

    I reckon because they already ***** slapped App and Troy down 50+ spots and expect losses there so the numbers had to support it.

    whats wrong with you, you been messing around with that peanut butter and now you think you got some crazy power over the players. I think we can go 9-3 or 10-2, there read that players(smile). Besides they are GS they BETTER get comfortable with a target on their back.

    Pretty much just a reset each year. Only a few teams get credit (or punishment) for what they did.
    You can kinda read it right to left as what they started at in 2018 TO what they finished at in 2018 TO where they start at in 2019.

    First number is 2019 postspring ranking.
    First stats in parentheses is 2018 postseason ranking and movement to 2019 postspring ranking.
    Second stats in parentheses is 2018 preseason ranking and movement to 2018 postseason ranking.
    129. Texas State (123, -6) (119, -4)
    119. USA (109, -10) (118, +9)
    117. CCU (98, -19) (130, +32)
    115. Georgia State (122, +7) (124, +2)
    113. ULM (89, -24) (110, +21)
    98. GS (28, -70!!!) (108, +80)
    92. Ark State (72, -20) (90, +18)
    91. ULL (79, -12) (125, +46)
    88. Troy (33, -55) (81, +48)
    73. App (21, -52) (76, +55)

    127. NMSU (124, -3) (121, -3)
    84. Tulane (67, -17) (101, +34)

    It's only locker room material if an opposing player or coach says something, not the media. Especially CFN. Who the heck are they and have you heard of them before today?
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    It would motivate me if some hack said we could not beat sunbelt teams.
