8. Appalachian St.
9. Georgia St.
10. New Mexico St.
11. Idaho

5 bowl eligble teams

1. ULL (they get Ark State at home)
2. Ark State
----------
3. USA
4. Troy (they don't play Ark State)
5. Texas State
6. ULM
----------
7. Georgia Southern (doesn't play Ark State or ULL - plus App at home - easiest conference schedule by a factor of 10)
8. Georgia State (better but an awful SBC schedule)
9. NM State (seemed to be trending upwards a bit at the end of the season)
10. Idaho (lots of long grinding travel)
11. App (fading going into FBS isn't a good sign)

Six bowl eligible teams (and they all find a place to bowl)

you sure are a confident one aren't you?

We don't have much room to talk. We weren't very good until the end of the season, just got lucky playing elon and western carolina last, and then coming in hyped for the florida game.

well, I don't think any of our people are projecting us to be 3rd in the conference either. haha

Analyze closer...It was a six win season and they were close in some of the six loses.

No, but GaSo did have some posters last year saying they would be #1 in the Sun Belt this year. Check if you want.

I think if Monken had stayed and we brought the triple option into the Sun Belt we would do better next year. Considering that other teams don't run it we would have had a certain advantage. That is not to say that Fritz can t get it done but I see this year being a big learning curve as we enter the league. To me probably our ceiling is 5th and our floor is 10th.

I think you would have done well with Monken, but may actually do better long term with Fritz or Fritzie as some have called him.
The Sun Belt conference has better coaches. App State figured out how to handle Monken's attack. No doubt most of the Sun Belt would have also. Not to say all would have the personnel to handle it.

Tom didn't watch one Minute of App football last year based upon his comments.

Good work.

I actually think Idaho might surprise some folks this year.

Past that, right now, I see the groups almost exactly like Tom does. Three tiers, and truthfully, any order within the tiers is totally reasonable. It's even possible with a key injury that the top and second tier, or second and bottom tier could have quite a bit of movement (but projecting injuries? YIKES).

In the end, I put Georgia Southern over App just because of the no "Cajuns and stAte" game... Though they do have to come get beat in San Marcos, so they might suffer a tremendous hangover from that.
