Making a reference guide for friends so when they ask about SBC programs, they all watch the SEC so I wanted to give a SBC/SEC comparison to make the conversation quick

Alabama- Troy (Most Conference Championships)
Florida- Louisiana (Has on of the best game day atmosphere's and in one of best recruiting areas)
LSU-Arkansas State (annual conference contender with great recent success)
Georgia- Georgia Southern (great location, great potential, great history)
Auburn- Appalachian State (tremendous home field environment, exciting programs, tons of recent success and history)
Arkansas- Texas State (Programs that both failed to reach their potential thus far)
Texas A&M- USA (program on the rise and bright futures)
Mississippi State- New Mexico State (#2 teams in home state's both under perform)
Ole Miss- ULM (academics are important, mid pack program)
Kentucky- Georgia State (bball)
Vanderbilt- Idaho
(now that James Franklin is gone, Vandy will return to their Idaho ways)

You're seriously comparing TXST; a 2nd year FBS team, to Arkansas? Not our fault they have been rubbish all this time in IA/FBS.

Man, I remember being a young and impressionable kid, and being taken to an LSU home football game. I saw an entire row of people throw their plastic drink cups (filled) at the opposing cheerleaders after the opposing team scored a touchdown (not the student section).

The last time I went to Cajun Field (2011) the students in the front row dumped beer on the band as they were walking back from halftime. Like father, like son, I guess.

Not that students get a free pass, but I did point out that it was not the LSU student section. Way to be that guy though.

If your band members were talking trash like your football players, I can understand why drunk students would go that far. I don't like it, but trash talking seems to escalate things on and off the field.

I can honestly say this was a time they were not. The students in the front row were obviously drunk or well on their way. They were obnoxiously pointing to the scoreboard and yelling out the 24-3 halftime score.

Sounds like some of the frat rats, they can get out of hand at times. Police should do a better job when it comes to those guys getting whipped up into a frenzy after their tailgate parties.

I've been on the sidelines for two Troy/UL games, they get after each other pretty hard.

Besides incidents like that, Cajun Field is beyond the best atmosphere in the belt. In 2011 right before kickoff I remember thinking it was borderline SEC in terms of loudness and intensity. No where in the SBC comes close.

I think you shouldn't make that claim until you have been to all SBC schools.

More than once, to each one, since 2005. Checkmate.

Remember who was in the belt in 2011 and what teams do not count in this scenario.

If you meant teams in/were in the belt in 2011 then my bad, as far as I'm concerned it could be true over the new teams as well, but I'm not certain that's why I commented.

You're seriously comparing TXST; a 2nd year FBS team, to Arkansas? Not our fault they have been rubbish all this time in IA/FBS.

I just don't understand with how beautiful a location (I lived in San Antonio for two years) and recruiting location Texas state has not had more football success.
